See more of my reviews Delirious About Books
Storm was Chris and Becca's story, Spark was Gabriel and Layne's, and Spirit is Hunter and Kate's story.
Throughout the books I grew to like Hunter more and more. After finishing Spark and was excited to get started on this one and once again, Brigid didn't fail to impress. I've said it before, and I know I'm going to say it again, but this is definitely my favourite series. This is another action packed, emotional joy ride.
Hunter is so complex, he's very defensive, trusts no one, and no one trusts him.
"You're not staying under this roof until you tell us what you're going to change.""Fine. I'll sleep in the car."His grandfather let him go with enough of a shove to make Hunter fall back a step. "Good," he said. "You're already packed."Whoa. Wait."What are you talking about?"His grandfather pointed. "Come back with a new attitude."Hunter looked. Two duffel bags - his duffel bags - were by the baker's rack, stuffed full of what looked like clothes.
His story was heartbreaking. I really felt for him, and on a side note, I love Casper his dog too - I'm a sucker for German Shepherds. May I add, Brigid you had me hold my breathe and fear for Casper at one point. I'm not going to spoil it for any one, but this book had my emotions in turmoil!
I really came to love Hunter by the end. Michael was a big surprise in this one too. The way he took Hunter like a younger brother was awesome.
I'll be honest, I wasn't a fan of Kate, but even she had me crying at one point (I'm a sook, I admit). I loved the text message banter between her and Hunter, and the way they made each other better.
"Run!" she yelled. "Hunter run!"
Then Silver must have done something because Kate cried out, and the sound fractured into sobs.
The Merricks boys didn't disappoint in this book (not that they have in any of the books, but you know what I mean!). The humour between Gabriel and Hunter we saw in Spark is here too.
"Hell, yes! Nicky never wants to do that stuff."
Hunter was touched. "I'm getting all misty."
"F*** you." Then Gabriel's expression changed. "You look really different without all the piercings."
I'm sad I've finished this book because now I have to wait for the next one, Secret. I can't wait to see how things plan out for the Merricks and Hunter.
