-- My Thoughts --
Leia and Walt are now on the way away from their island. To an unknown world. The horizons are limitless but there is much danger waiting for them. And the line between enemies and friends is getting more harder to determine. Alisa is one the island, changed after the truths that have been exposed until she meets Saul, the tortured previous-leader of the Unbelievers.
The world-building is much more prominent in this sequel than the others, because there are different worlds to discover and many more details to be fulfilled. Although it is not as detailed as I hoped it would be, it was still enjoyable. There was a lot of potential and the author definitely took advantage of that and succeeded in it.
The characters; we have four main characters to keep track of, but it is never confusing. We have Leia, our MC from the first book, and Walt, our MC from the second book. But we also have Alisa and Saul. The strange thing is; i felt like I connected much more with Alisa and Saul than with the other couple. They were so adorable and lovely.
The romance plays an important part in this story and it's really beautiful. We're already familiar with the Leia and Walt love story. So it was refreshing to see them go farther in this novel. Then, the romance between Alisa and Saul, is so new and with tension. It's really believable and lovely.
This was a very enjoyable read. I loved reading it and the ending was really fulfilling. No loose ends. I loved that. Finally, if you like a plot-oriented, romantic love story, then this is for you!
