Hey guys! And welcome to my stop on the tour! I am so happy to be part this tour because I absolutely adored this book (and you can read my gushing review down below)! Also, make sure you scroll all the way down for the giveaway! Thank you for stopping by!
Oh man, this book...AMAZING! It was just so beautifully written!
Lately I've been reading pretty good books with tons of action, and I love that. But I've really been wanting something with a more prominent romantic element to it. I was craving it! And Laura definitely gave me what I wanted! The sexual tension between Ethan and Allison...Ugh! I LOVED IT! I absolutely loved the romantic element to it and I ADORED Ethan! But urgh! He is just infuriatingly charming. He says he wants to date Allison, and was so close to giving in...but he is just a HUGE flirt! If he wants to win Allie over he has got to rein it in. I really did love him, but I also felt bad for Allison because she was hurting over Ethan. Anyway, I cannot wait to see what will happen with their relationship in the next book since this book ended in sort of a cliffhanger.
As for Allison, she was just a really likable and relatable character! I loved her!
Switching to another note, I just had my psychiatric lecture not too long ago and had a week long clinical rotation at a mental hospital about 2 weeks ago (I'm a nursing student, BTW), so I got to see the signs and symptoms of schizophrenia first hand...and I can say that the author did a fantastic job describing this mental illness! Allie's mom had that flat affect (lack of emotional expression) going on and she was withdrawn, it also seemed like she had some delusions/hallucinations going on too, and disorganized speech (as in she didn't make sense when she spoke, sometimes). So she was right on with that! Though Allie's mom's schizophrenia...there's just something more to that than you can imagine, and I really liked that twist!
The story itself I really liked as well... Allison dealing with her feelings for Ethan, caring for her mother, and suddenly being thrust into a world full of fairies, both good and evil. Whew!
Which brings me to the subject of the fae. To be honest, their not really my thing, probably 'cause I have not read too many books with them. But I absolutely loved the addition in The Forgotten Ones! The story line was just very interesting with some very suspenseful moments! I keep wondering about this "Samantha" girl they keep talking about...hmmm...
Anyway, I absolutely LOVED this book! The psych stuff, the paranormal fae stuff, and my favorite: the romance! I cannot wait for the next book in this series! I seriously need another dose of this Allie/Ethan romance, lol.
