REVIEW:
You all know how much I love Chevy Steven's books but sadly, this is the one that I don't love. I will even go further to say I wished I saved my money. I just saw a short story by her, not bothering to read the description or anything and bought it because I love everything else I've read. That was poor judgement on my part. I would have noticed, had I read the synopsis, that I didn't really need to back-track. Honestly, my curiosity might have won out either way though.
This short story should be read before reading Always Watching. If you've already read it, then don't bother with this one, if not, then yes, read it.
The ending is whack too. Ended way too abruptly. I actually said out loud, 'What the heck?!' I just expected so much more.
I surely won't hold it against the author though. She is an incredible storyteller and one I will surely read every time. I suggest you do too!

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
