My Review:


I have been waiting to write this review for some time.  Not because I didn't love it, but because I wanted to do it justice.

This novella was beautiful.  I adore Nicholas and always have, so to see him grow and become this amazing person is so heartwarming.  He has always been the leader, so to speak, in the family, and to see how he cares for his family and the sacrifices he makes is such an important step forward in his character development.

Ana's side of the story broke my heart.  She is going through things during this pregnancy that really mess with your head.  She is in love with two different men and going through her depression has you wondering if she is capable of actually being strong enough to carry this baby to term.  At times, I thought I was going to cry.

Finn.  I absolutely love this man!  There is not one single thing about him I do not adore.  And although he has a lot of decisions to make and choices to live by, he seems to me, the most sure in the group.  Finn is my second new favorite behind Nicholas.  What an all around amazing guy.

There are a lot of other characters I could get into, but I want you to read the book!  Sarah keeps you engaged and thrilled to be part of this magical and mystical world!!!

This novella get 5 lipsticks!!!  I NEED THE NEXT BOOK!
