Secrets and lies. They are everywhere: haunting her, tormenting her. In the midst of it all, he’d been her escape, her passion. The only person she’d trusted in six years. And then he’d made her doubt that trust, cutting her deeply. But as she’d once told him, she was damaged, not broken. She is ready to fight and not just for survival. She is fighting for the truth and she won’t stop until she has it, not even for…him.
I enjoyed the read, it was just really slow in parts and it jumped around quite a bit.
The book started out great, with lots of suspense. Who to trust, who not to trust, why are things different this time... but I found myself annoyed with Amy more than once. It was almost like she had multiple personalities. One minute she's a scared teenager, the next she's so stubborn she doesn't care if it gets her killed, and later in the day she's a dumb blonde that has no clue what's going on. It was a bit much.
I really liked the plot, though it drug on and on at times. There was a whole cast of characters and you never knew who to trust and Amy just jumped from person to person with blind faith like a lost puppy. I was disappointed in the bad guy, I was hoping for something more interesting instead of the obvious. There were some characters that just fell out of the story, but perhaps they are explained in the next book... It just didn't feel like much of an ending.
