Truth (Consequences #2)

Truth (Consequences, #2)Truth by Aleatha Romig
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

****This review contains spoilers****
I intended to wait until at least February before reading part two, but I just couldn’t do it. The thought of it kept me awake.
I am so conflicted about this book. I enjoyed it, truly I did, but the characters…
Like many other reviewers Claire infuriated me with her willingness to brush everything under the carpet (compartmentalizing)- he is a murderer for Heaven’s sake who manipulated her, left her in prison and took away everything! Also, the ridiculous situations she puts herself in even as she thinks ‘I really ought not to be doing this’ makes you think of a confused teenager rather than the mature woman who first left prison. Then there are the constant contradictions – she is so thankful of her support network – the friends she has – so why does she then then ignore everything she has told them (and herself) and turn her back on their advice when she was the one that got them so riled in the first place? I really began to feel Harry was well shot of her, but his input was crucial if only because it showed her how a proper relationship should be conducted…and then she went and ignored that lesson too. I get it – she likes Tony, loves him, and the heart will not be swayed but I was as ready as Emily to scream at her.
Loved the Burkes – it was nice to have some down-to-earth hearts and flowers dedication.
Finally, why, oh why didn’t she call and tell Meredith and Emily that Tony DID NOT abduct her again. I don’t understand.
The twists were great. I really enjoy it when I cannot work things out in a book so thank you for that.
Now, I can’t sleep at night for trying to work out the rest of the plots and twists. But that’s not a bad thing.
This book will make you grit your teeth at times but it will also keep you glued to the very last fullstop.

About Bea Turvey apprentice author and witch

I am a wild-haired author who cannot stop writing. The writing process is not a task for me. It is an extension of myself. When I write, I lose myself as easily as if I slipped into the story for a swim. Writing became a serious part of my life in Decmber of 2009. Unless you're reading this in 2017 it wasn't that long ago, and the bug hit me hard and fast. My first novel, Banished, was published in March 2010 and is available at If you read it, or anything else I've written, I hope you'll post a review and let me know why you liked it - or even why not!
