|Make Us More / Stone Mended|
|The Stone Trilogy, #3|
|March 20th 2016|
|I’ve had enough pain to last me a lifetime. When will enough be enough? Just as my handsome dominate and I think that we have a handle on our lives someone sets out to destroy it.
But I find myself resilient as Alex works to remove the demons from our world. Except this time it’s his past catching up to us.
|I had this book (series) on my kindle since forever – I found it a long time ago on my quest of “what to read after FSOG” – so I read the now “older” version with the stone title.
Not sure what changed from there to the new one but this series is a contradiction from one page to the next. There was so much strange stuff going on that it was not only enough for more books but honestly TOO MUCH for one series.
I have never read a series where so much of similar stuff happened to the leading characters.
<spoiler>They were supposed to have security watching them yet that “bad stuff” happens on a regular basis – And from the beginning on I never understood why he didn’t tell her who he was – why she didn’t join him – how he could leave her so easy- the antagonists (yes plural) came out of nowhere – like her job promotions (yes again plural) – his family loves her – hates her and two seconds later loves her again after they say the vilest stuff about her just like 5 seconds ago – the whole plot is one huge whiplash I could go on here for a while </spoiler>
The whole series is like a huge mix match / best of-of all things I have read a while ago … I was actually starting to puzzle different books together – like when the part with the race team came I was waiting to hear him say “I race you” just to add K. Bromberg’s Driven to the list …
It was over the top from beginning to end … and here comes the surprise –
b>I could not put the book down …
from what you read here so far you might think that I would end in a DNF with this one – yet I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN .. I was sort of almost annoyed with myself but <b>#shrugs </b>… I liked it … and I am unable to explain it … Inbetween everything there was still something that grabbed my attention and stuck … – so debating forward and backward with myself I go with 3 stars and will leave it up to you to make up your mind about this …
