I was hoping for more from this book. A few minutes, a spurned rival, and innocence is forever lost. Jules really didn't have a reason to be so concerned for Shay, and so her paranoia was hard to connect to. I did like the ending , I was surprised by it for a few reasons. Who the hell creeps around watching people having sex? This novel may be short in pages but it certainly doesn't skimp on anything else. I had someone else pegged early on and never suspected the real one.
It reminds you that things can happen to anyone at any time. I know I wouldn't be. Shay's a troubled teen sent to a remote school, the Blue Rock Academy, under judges orders. Who in their right mind would buy that? The album has been re-released several times. The school is run by a reverend who is extremely religious and runs a strict environment.
Shay, a rebellious teenager, is sent to Blue Rock Academy by the court and her mother, as a last resort to keeping her out of jail. I enjoyed it immensely for what it was. Jules, a waitress until a teaching job opens, applies for a teaching job at Blue Rock; a position that became vacant when another teacher was accused of an inappropriate affair with a student. It flows wonderfully and has great pacing. However, if this is the best she has to offer, I am far from impressed. To view it, So when I reviewed this book halfway through, I gave it a 1. It kept my attention until the very end.
As the danger escalates, Darcy and her future sister-in-law struggle to keep their inner-wolves at bay. He had some sort of cult running with a devious plan, but no details are given through most of the book. It's been a long time since I've read a thriller. But it does so without a clear direction and without much adventure. All she cares about is keeping her sister safe, despite Shay being a brat most of the time.
Not to mention how quickly she gets hired as a teacher at such a specialty school, with a seemingly minimal background check and no experience with troubled kids. This is one of only 2 books I have ever not finished and I plan to give the other one another chance, this one I've already archived. It makes her wonder if her suspicions are all in her head. The rescue mission commences with Jules, an out of work teacher, applying for a teaching position at the school. I have trouble just being told it is what it is. This guy was a teenager. It started out captivating me but I got a little bored part way through.
The alternative — that she was the murderer — never occurred to me, but I like it just as well. I loved when Trent finally freaking kissed Jules and they had sex. All it takes is a trip to the store, and her life is in danger. With her heightened sense of smell this wolf already knows her stalker is lurking in the shadows behind her, waiting, and he's dangerous. Un petit pavé de 600 pages qui à la 500ème page tu te dis avoir tout vu et paff!! On a positive note, the ending wasn't bad and at least made me not regret sticking it out to the end.
Several interesting twists and turns; the last one being the most surprising! That pilot is a freaking creeper. You know a story is good when you talk to it. Anyway, I didn't hate it; enjoy it for what it is and don't expect too much. This one is a little disappointing. So much action and emotion in just twenty pages.
I can't wait to read more about him in future books. The main focus of the story is the mystery, the secrets in this school and let me tell you, what a ride Without Mercy is! In fact, ever since Jules found her father murdered, she has been plagued by nightmares. I never suspected that the pilot was the leader of the cult. The beating must not have been severe because, when his back is shown later, there's no sign of trauma on it. From such a striking start, the song continues to unfold over the album's full length. I never suspected that the pilot was the leader of the cult.
