I liked this book better than the second one and that’s rare for me because I’ve always assumed that second installments usually bad. Not just in movies but also in books, and for the first time I was proved wrong. This book contained everything I thought the first book lacked, the character and story development. I am not sure if it is a good thing that Micha and Ella actually fought in this book but that what I was waiting for, for them to burst out emotions. Seriously, no couple doesn’t ever fight. In the first book Ella just keeps on running away and Micha just waits for her to come around, but this time it was different. Ella learnt to face and overcome the darkness that has been trying to consume her eversince her mother’s death and Micha stops being a push-over. Micha doesn’t even realize it but he is, he had always hated his father for leaving them but when his father calls on him just because he needed his help he goes and helps his father without even gaining back his trust and love. Ella just pushes him away but he always waits for her even if he has his own problems as well, he keeps everything to himself assuming that he’s the strongest but he’s not. Just like Ella, he needed help too.
I was expecting more of Lila and Ethan in this book and there just a few, but it’s ok since I enjoyed the MC more in this book. I really liked what happened towards the ending, maybe I’m just a sucker for happy endings. Overall I found this book better than the first and it had more positive incidents that I really liked. It was touching and I was actually happy for the characters, even for Ella’s mean brother. So for those who are hesitating on starting this series, please try this one, it was as if it was based on someone’s true life story, touching and moving.
