The story of Elliot and Catherine isn’t your typical romance. A lot is going on, that as a reader we don’t fully grasp till the end. I loved Elliot and Catherine. They were two souls who were destined to meet. They needed each other more than they would have ever thought. Reading this I was wondering what the heck was going on, one moment in the story it clicked. But had to wait till the end. I’m not going to give it away in this review.. nope.. lips are sealed. I struggled in the way of how to rate this book. All the Little Lights was different, it had that undying love, but also there was a much darker aspect of it. I feel that McGuire did a fantastic job. The writing drew you in, and the story kept my interest. I didn’t have that emotional pull as much as I’d liked. But I can’t deny this is a Five Star Read. So, Overall, of course, Five Boundless Stars
