Thank you SupaGurlTours for hosting the tour
In the fourth and final installment, everything is on the line. Merrick's life is in the balance and Lily is their only hope. Ellie and her new powers are miraculous, but also problematic; if she's with the bunker family, they won't be able to sense when the Lighters are there. There are many new members to the bunker and sparks will fly, and with the food shortage, they will all have plenty to deal with. Miguel is intrigued with Rylee, her past and her spunk. Ryan and Elli are barely scratching the surface of their relationship. Cain and Lillian will have to deal with Daniel, who has no qualms about showing his true feelings for her. And Sherry and Merrick…what will happen to this happenstance family who have worked so hard to come together? Can they all survive? Can they all withstand the new enemy that is right outside their door? Can they beat the Lighters, once and for all…
I usually like to add a little summary of the book in my own words when I write my reviews. It's just how I roll. But I really don't want to do that on this review cause it would kinda give too much away. Trust me, you will want to read this book to get closure for the series. But one thing is for sure...these guys cannot catch a flippin break!
What can I say about this book...this series? Collide is what started my fascination with Mrs. Crane. I knew when I read it I would love everything she wrote…and so far I have. In fact each book, in each of her series, is different and better than the last. #TRUTH Please keep in mind when you read Revolution you must prepare yourself. Break out the tissues, cue the sappy sad songs, and get ready for one heck of a story. And if you don't shed a tear or two at the beginning you are apparently not human or have no soul. Just sayin!
I probably have mentioned this before but I absolutely loved when more POV's were introduced into the series. Cause really it is not just Sherry and Merrick's story anymore. Throughout the series there are more characters introduced that we have come to love and adore. All the characters really have become like a second family, to me at least, and it's heartbreaking to see this series end.
But guys...so much happens in this book! There are ambushes, deaths, love, and weddings. Oh did I just say that? Hmm maybe there was...maybe there wasn't. Guess you will have to read to see. And that ending!! Whoa! Absolutely loved it! It was something I was hoping for from the moment I fell in love with Merrick and Sherry at the very beginning of the series.
Merrick: He leaned down to me, nose to nose, and let his fingers run a path across my cheek. “No matter what happens, baby, I love you more than I ever though was humanly possible. Sometimes, my heart hurts from being too full. Know that. If nothing else comes of this day, know that I loved you so much that I could never be sad again, wherever I am.” Yeah I know right? Freakin love that man!
Lillian & Cain: “Make me forget that the world’s ending, Cain.”
My heart ached a bit at that, but I complied with a willing mind and body and even grinned as I said, “Anything you want, L.” Yep, Cain is hot!
If you love books that are packed full of romance then this series is just for. Yes, my dear Shelly can write a romance like no one’s business. So I bid farewell to this series but welcome her new books with open arms.
