Trust No One.
In this world, nothing is as it seems . . .
Reggie’s visions turn to horrifying hallucinations. For weeks she’s tortured with starvation and nightmares that vex her resolve. Her only companion is a mysterious shadow—a figure with no shape, no substance—that seems to have a mind of its own. It’s a presence that prickles her memories and plants a feeling of familiar dread in her mind.
Where she is, she doesn’t know, and the organization delving into her mind is more threatening than ever before.
With the help of shady contacts from his past, Nate struggles to travel half way around the world, facing his own demons and dreadful revelations. But when a stranger joins the team, the duality of this newcomer’s actions sets everyone on edge, leading them through a trial one of them . . . will not survive.
**I received a copy of the e-book from the author in exchange for an honest and unbiased review**
The third book of the series,Duality,lives up to its expectations,like it meets all the standards set by the first two books,and is captivating in its own way.Just as I did with the second book,I started this one immediately after i was done with the second book,but then after a few chapters into the book,I sort of picked up something else,cause this book deserved all the attention and interest I could give,and reading them continuously didn’t exactly help me keep up to that.
The writing is as usual so fresh and eloquent.The word and character building continues.Like I don’t have much to write in addition to the first two reviews,so this is going to be short.
Things take a different form in this book.Like Reggie’s useful visions,they become nightmarish hallucinations,you meet some old characters that might not have shown up in the second book and of course, you meet a brand new character.If you did read the first two books,you might be expecting one particular character,just saying,it may or may not be the same character.Who knows,it might even an old character thought dead,but not dead?Sorry,I’m getting sidetracked by the character!
What I’m saying is that this book is as thrilling and exciting as the other two books,and also highly devastating.This book will give you hope,joy,sadness,wreck you ,shatter your precious heart into pieces,make you wish that it wasn’t really happening,but at the end,you’ll love it.Like you’ll love the book,because you cannot just not love a book with such fresh writing,fascinating world building and amazing character development.Like I loved each and every one of the characters…well,at least the good-natured ones..like Reggie,Nate,Ransley and Roydon.Each one of them has their own personality,Reggie with her serene nature,hard but caring Nate,kick ass Ransley,bad boy Roydon,you’ll sure love them all.
I’m really hoping that there’s a fourth book,like there has to be a fourth book cause there are so many unresolved things,things that I need answer for.And I’m so looking forward to it.
