“If there was a hell beyond what he knew, he would welcome it. After all, a life without living was simply a death without dying. What more was there to fear or hate but life, endless life, with no respite?”
So guess what? Apparently World War III not only changed the face of the planet and killed millions. It also turned a large number of people into psychopaths, sexual predators or sadistic assholes and put them in charge. What could possibly go wrong?
I’ve started a list. Well it’s actually two blue post-it notes stuck on the inside cover of my kindle. One is for the list of people I hate and the second it for the list of people I like and I feel at the end of this book can be trusted. There are not many on the trusted list and more than a few people on the I want to throw you off a high cliff list. Although Sin has a way of sorting the people on that list out.
I’ve had ICoS on my to-read list for a very long time and I have been slow to start for a multitude of reasons, one of which is there is a lot of reading in this series and it is a large investment of time but at the end of this I’m not all at that concerned about the length. This was just amazing.
Sin and Boyd are unlike any two characters I’ve ever come across. While they appear to be polar opposites and I liked that even their appearance reflects that. They have more than you would think in common. The sense of loneliness was often palpable throughout this as was the feeling of absolute helplessness.
I can already tell that I’m going to get a little bit lost in this world and these men, I just hope they don’t hurt my heart too much on the journey. Their inability to communicate has already led to some hair pulling and maybe a few tears.
So, off to Mexico I go!!
