Goodreads Rating: 4/5 Stars
Ivy Westfall is beyond the fence and she is alone. Abandoned by her family and separated from Bishop Lattimer, Ivy must find a way to survive on her own in a land filled with countless dangers, both human and natural. She has traded a more civilized type of cruelty–forced marriages and murder plots–for the bare-knuckled brutality required to survive outside Westfall’s borders.
But there is hope beyond the fence, as well. And when Bishop reappears in Ivy’s life, she must decide if returning to Westfall to take a final stand for what she believes is right is worth losing everything she’s fought for.
I’ve really enjoyed this duo! The first book was just swoon worthy and SUPER fun to read! *sigh* Bishop….
Ok if you’re looking for a clean good romance this I would recommend to anyone!
Book two is no different in wonderfulness than book one and I greatly appreciate that! We all fell in love with the story and the characters and the world building.
In this book we continue with the story after Ivy has been banished and she is out beyond the fence. Where she has nothing but the clothes on her back to survive. Her whole life she’s been brought up to fear what’s beyond and now…she’s beyond everything and everyone she’s ever known and loved.
This was good because I enjoyed the fact that it was brutal and very real. I really enjoyed the dangers and reality of what she faced. Nothing came that easy and I appreciated that.
I absolutely am grateful for a wonderful author and writer who can write a male character that is GOOD! Bishop in all his glory is not perfect but dang it, he is close to it and I just loved him. From the first book through the second he remained a gentleman, kind, sweet, thoughtful and just all around GOOD! Too many of these YA books have toxic male or female love interest and it horrible!
I enjoyed Ivy and her character development. Throughout both books we see her constantly struggle with who she is and who she wants to be while battling everything that she was taught against everything that is in front of her. She was just super fun and great to read.
Overall this book is fabulous and I am so grateful to EntangledTeen for reaching out to me to read and review this book! Seriously AWESOME!
