You can't help whom you fall in love with, can you? Because if you could I would say to Brysen RUN! Race is not good for at all! I found it hard to understand what made these two good together. I didn't get the love between them. I couldn't feel the chemistry, they didn't infiltrate my heart like Jay's characters usually do. And that makes me sad. I wanted to love them, but it just didn't happen for me. I wasn't a believer.
I did however, enjoy the dark, gritty storyline that only the Point could offer up. It had a dystopian feel to it. Like they were outcasts from the Hill. Banished to the bottom and left to fend for themselves in a savage way. Which, is almost the truth. A lot of bad shit happens in the dark shadows beyond the Hill.
So what do you do when life pulls you to the Point? You either end up in prison, die or fight. Race and Brysen certainly had a lot of fighting to do to survive the life they have chosen.
Race has a lot of cleaning up to do from the mess his predecessor left. He will always be a criminal, but he's trying to be the good kind. Sounds ludicrous, I know. But he did have his Robin Hood moment with Brysen's mom. So he wasn't all that bad of a guy.
I thought this book was a good read, even though I didn't enjoy all aspects of the story. I do believe Jay's books are always a buy. Her writing and story telling alone make it worth it.
