Review: Sojourn by Cecilia London

Sojourn by Cecilia London
Sojourn (Bellator Saga #3) by Cecilia London
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Release: December 7, 2015
Length: 290 pages
The Bellator Saga #3

Haunted by her experience at The Fed, Caroline tries to create a new identity. A new present, a new future. She can’t escape the memories that dog her when she least expects it, leaving her mired in a depression that she finds difficult to escape. Caroline needs to regain her physical and mental strength if she intends on surviving the journey to find the elusive rebellion. But that’s easier said than done with the ghosts of the past constantly whispering in her ear.

The road is long and dangerous, and there are no guarantees. She and her companions have no idea what they will find when they arrive at their destination. And what they finally discover may change everything.

Sojourn is not a standalone and must be read after the first two books in the Bellator Saga.

For readers 18+. Ends on a cliffhanger.

My heart still hurts.

heartbroken

Every time Caroline succumbed to her memories further fractured my heart. I was petrified each time she fell asleep and yet I was excited to see everyone again.

This story was about loss, pain, grief, love, strength, perseverance, and determination.

Part of me wondered why Caroline was willing to accept Murdock's word. His job was to torture her, both mentally and physically. Obviously some deaths were real because she saw and heard them. But with regards to Jack? Her children? Even Christine and Tom? She was a former U.S. Attorney, so why did she believe circumstantial evidence (although the evidence was pretty strong)?

But I guess that's the point. Murdock unfortunately succeeded in killing Caroline's hope. And that just broke me. Throughout this book her grief was tangible and I think she's suffering from PTSD.

The highlight for me (other than every flashback with Jack) was the end.

happy

I'm so freaking happy right now!!

Now I'm off to read Phoenix because I have to see what Cecilia London has planned for me.
