To keep the people she loved safe, Sara left everything she knew behind. She soon learns this new world is nothing like her old one, and she struggles to make a place for herself among the Mohiri. But it soon becomes apparent to Sara and to everyone one around her that she is not your typical warrior.
As the weeks pass, Sara builds new relationships, copes with her new trainers, and tries to manage her ever-changing powers, while keeping her unique heritage a secret. Looming in the background is the constant shadow of the Master who will do anything to find her.
Sara finds herself on a journey of self-discovery that uncovers her true strengths and awakens a part of her she never knew existed. She experiences the delight of new friendships, the sweetness and pain of first love, and a loss so deep it could be the thing that finally breaks her. At the end of it all, she discovers that the one place she was supposed to be safe might not be the refuge she thought it was. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Refuge, is just as good or even better than the first. Sara has moved on to live with the Mohiri. But it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. She’s beginning to learn about herself and what she is. There is no denying the connection she has with Nikolas. Their chemistry and passion for each other just leapt off the pages. Even if Sara had a reluctance to have any type of relationship with him. A lot happens in Refuge and there’s no denying the skills that Lynch as as a writer. When you sit down and really think about it. All the new characters and creatures that appear in Refuge. You have some sort of connection with all of them. Sara is also still as stubborn as before but she does think before she acts.. at least most of the time. She is young and has a lot more to learn about this world that she was introduced to in the first book. I’ve really grown to love Caitlin’s narration. She has brought Sara to life and all of the characters. But she made it even that much better. I love when you find a narrator, that your not just listening to them speak. You’re so engrossed in the story, you don’t know whats really going on around you. Overall, I give this Five Boundless Stars. I love this series!
