So if you don’t know this already, let me tell you. I love a broken hero, almost as much as an anti hero, and I got the best of both worlds in Ghost.
I can’t even put into words how much I freaking loved this book.
I felt pain, like I almost cried. almost
I don’t cry, There have been few books that have caused me to tear up. I must me a masochist, and Zavarelli is the sadist, because I loved it.
I know I know you get it , I loved the book. While the first part is sad, I was worried that Talia wouldn’t pull through. Now don’t get me wrong, its understandable. On that note there may be triggers for some.
This book has just the right amount of angst, It wasn’t overwhelming. It was just enough to pull at my heart strings, but not too much where I’m rolling my eyes.
When the heroine/or hero as already been through so much, we as the reader want the to see them happy. We want to see things go right for them. Ghost had the perfect balance.
Now don’t get me wrong Alexei does become an ass, and while some would ask if he’s redeemable. His groveling level was low, but I think what he went through may have been enough.
“I want you to know the level of my devotion to you,” he states. “I don’t ever want you to question it. The things I have and will continue to do to protect you. To avenge you. They are dark things. But that darkness is my burden to carry, and it always will be.”
I don’t know what else to say, but I know i’ll forward to Zavarelli books, I love her writing style.
