If You Dare by A.R. Torre
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Boy, what am I going to do with myself now? This was my favourite of the trilogy and it had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. It reached a level of tension that surpassed the others and I revelled in my own discomfort and wringing of hands.
Deanna had a vulnerability in this book, unsure of her past actions and hurting for those she loves. There's a slight discomfort in me that I am such a fan of a character who is seriously unhinged but that is the talent of A Torre's writing. Jeremy, sigh, I feel sadness about these two together. But the villains of this piece were completely unexpected until I started to develop theories at about 30%. I was very pleased to be correct as this normally doesn't happen to me.
The writing was seamless and I was immersed in the story. The storyline was clever and I am utterly satisfied in how the book culminated. For me, this was a good outcome and true to the characters as we know them. I would absolutely love to have more Deanna in the future.
