5 (Huge) Boundless Stars
Let me just say this isn’t really a zombie book so if that is what you are expecting it isn’t that.
“These are people – humans – who have gone feral, wild.”
I was provided a copy of Sundered in exchange for an honest review! OMG I LOVED IT! I was thinking to myself, “Meh a zombie type book.” I don’t know why I ever doubt Shannon. It is original and brilliant and also has a kick ass heroin! What more could you ask for? This is the anniversary edition of this story and Shannon has gone and added to the original story. I never read the first version of this series, but so far I am loving this one. It is a dual POV with Mara and Sebastian and I loved being inside of both of their heads.
The concept was truly original and something I was able to immerse myself into completely. The struggles that Mara and Sebastian have, both before and after Nevermore are heartbreaking and gives so much depth to their characters. You can feel their love emanating off the page.
“That was love; it had the power to overcome any physical change in each other.”
Be warned the story leaves at such a cliffhanger OMG! Even with that this gets a HUGE 5 Boundless Stars from me, if is utterly fantastic!
