Goodreads Summary: You think you’re in control. That it’s your hands on the reins. But I’m starting to think either someone else is driving, or the reins are attached to nothing. Just flapping and snapping in the breeze. What could be simple, never is. Rosa doesn’t want to get used to being separated from Joseph, from Orry. So she must find the strength to battle her way back to her family, while mustering the courage to face her father, his secrets. With her best friend, Rash, by her side, she feels blessed and cursed. He is her saving grace, but will Joseph accept him and forgive her for leaving? Rosa must pull these threads together as she hacks her way to The Wall with the aid of her new companions but, heartbreakingly, without the one person she’d planned to save. Finding her way home is only the beginning. The biggest changes, the shocking truths, are waiting, hovering over the town like a menacing vapor. The Wounded have waited, nursed, and been dormant for too long. And now they’re coming… dragging the ghosts of their lost ones behind them.
Amazing! This is by far one of the best books I’ve read ever! The imagery and the words Lauren used just put you right in the story and it was like I lived it with them. The last chapters had my heart pounding so hard. I don’t even know how to put into words how amazing this series is. It just keeps getting better with each book. I’m planning on buying paperback copies because it’s just one of those series that you love so much, you have to have it and read it over and over again. When I read the last chapters and I thought Rosa was dead, the first thing that popped into my head was Allegiant. I think those books are ok, I don’t hate them, it’s just that I don’t know how to feel when I think about the last book. It changed my view on that series and I just don’t love them or hate them. So, when I thought Rosa was dead, I was thinking that I wouldn’t like the series anymore and wondering how in the world the last book would go on without her. I’m so glad that Rosa is alive, even if she’s not with her family right now. I’m so excited for the fourth book and I can’t wait to see if she makes it back to Joseph, Orry, and everyone else. Thank you Lauren Taylor for writing an amazing book and giving me the chance to read it! 🙂
