I can't tell you the most interesting thing about this book, I just realized, cuz spoiler. lol

Vaughn was very patient. It's hard not to get whiplash when you face 6 personalities in one body, and when the switch happens frequently and sometimes without a warning that it's about to happen. It's chaotic.

Sometimes this wasn't the most exciting book, they did mundane things, but just when I wanted to take a break, because I didn't much care about them exploring a museum, an alter would come forward and make it interesting. Which coming out of my mouth, sounds horrible. I think people with DID would much prefer a quiet day without any excitement.

So this isn't the kind of book that would make you grip the edge of your seat, bouncing up and down. But it's fascinating. Not Oryn in particular but how Vaughn tried to navigate their very fragile relationship in a sea of uncertainty. It was really emotional.

I also wouldn't call this a particularly dark book. There isn't even a mention of anything dark, more like a conjecture, speculation of what might have happened to Oryn in the past that resulted in 5 alters to come forward. And at times I teared up, because he himself didn't even remember the reason. He just knew that something bad had happened.... oh, no... there is something that might trigger some people: suicide attempt, but I don't think it was really an attempt more like a call for help?... or, the physical manifestation of the inner pain, he wanted to hurt just as much on the outside, as he was hurting on the inside.

I seriously feared the ending. Just this one time I did not want a perfect HEA. I can't tell you why, cuz that would be a spoiler too.

The length of the book allowed the relationship to develop in a slow but steady pace, and also for us to understand someone who lives with this disorder. The balance was perfect, the romance did not get overshadowed by the struggles of living with a disorder, unlike in the Trials of Fear series, in my opinion.

It's a beautiful love story and I liked it lots and lots. :) ( )

Love Vaughn

This book is just so very much. It’s a bit different than my usual type of read but the description pulled me in and I’m so happy I read it. Vaughn’s love for Oryn was complete and together they overcame so many odds. ( )
