I received an ebook of this novel from the author and I voluntarily reviewed it. Thanks Anne Malcom!
My favourite Anne Malcom books are Unquiet Minds and Skeletons of Us, and since this is a parallel story, I knew I would love it. Even though I already knew what was going to happen, I still got way too emotional at certain points, and at certain lines. Yes, Anne can make me feel all these feelings as if I'm reading the story for the first time and not, well, the second.
As much as I love all the Sons, Bull has taken the crown, well there's Kill too, but Bull is special. Anne is able to paint a vivid picture of his past, and his demons, and we see how his darkness starts to recede with Mia and Lexie. I loved how integral Lexie was to the story. How it's not a simple love story, but one about family as well. Family is not blood, family is about bonds, love, trust... It's the people that feel like home, the people you turn to, and that comes through loud and clear in this book.
There are just so many beautiful lined in this book dealing with light and darkness, and day and night. I may have overly highlighted in this book *shrugs*. Bull rising from his ashes was a beautiful story to read, and I cannot wait to dive into the next one.
