My Opinion

Since this is three books in one, I will be taking each book and briefly reviewing them.

Destiny Binds

Scout and her step-brother are known as the twins, having been raised together since they were six months old. Scout knows something is up when a new guy and his brother move to town. Her brother and his cousin are acting well different, even ordering her away from him. She wasn’t really interested in him until that order. Curiosity killed the cat, or in this case the wolf. Why don’t they want her around him? 

I liked Scout’s logical way of finding out the truths in this one. I like how she is observant and doesn’t sit around thinking wow is me when things don’t go her way. I like how she is a take charge kinda gal. Alex is sweet- I just didn’t like him. He wasn’t the one who I wanted Scout with. I did like his belief in Scout, and in their destinies. The ending was a tear-jerker.

Time Mends

Does time really mend? Can it? Scout has to deal with the aftermath of what occurs in Density Binds. It is hard and there are changes in her because of it. People are after her and she doesn’t know why. Her family is confused and scared. The only constant in her life is her bestie , Talley. She doesn’t know who to trust or who to turn to. Her relationships with everyone she ever knew are now being called into question. 

This book really is about mending. It is hard to read at times- the emotions that Scout goes through are real, they are hers and they hurt. I love how she doesn’t sugarcoat her reactions. Instead she just has them. Those that lied to her have to make amends- those that hurt her have to hurt. Who now will protect her? Who now will guide her?

Fate Succumbs

Holy smokes- that it who saves her? How Scout does not explode upon finding out the truth is well amazing. I love that she stays strong. I love that he pushes her and doesn’t cuddle her. I love that they develop a close relationship that is not based on mourning. I like the ending and the new beginning.

I ended up reading the whole series, the novellas and the spin off-series in one week. I enjoyed the characters. I liked how they were there for one another even when they didn’t want to be, even when they wanted to wallow in self-pity. I liked how after everything they were still a family. More importantly I like how it shows the messy side of love- not wanting to be in love, being in love with someone who doesn’t want you, being with someone who you think hates you, and how relationships grow.

My Rating 4 stars out of 5

  1. I really enjoy taking a whole series at once. Nice.

  2. This sounds like it was a great trilogy! Scout sounds like a strong and intelligent character. This series sounds like it had some emotional highs and lows. Now I'm curious about who saves Scout, and what her twin has been hiding from her all along. Wonderful Review :)
