I was given the book free of charge in exchange of an honest review (Lovers of Paranormal). The following review contains spoilers.
Rating 7 of 10
Ella is back in the third instalment of The Wanderers. Infortunately in the beginning of the book she is also back to being 14 years old. If Tristan is making her act this way - he is so not the guy for her. Oh, don't get me wrong, I undersood her need to make sure that Tristan is alive and well but the way she did it.... ught! First I didn't liked her attitude toward Deirdre. She went uninvited in her garden and she engaged in a power duel. For what? What the fact that she is stonger than the old woman proves? Except that she has no respect for others... And the way she acted toward her father.... poor man have been scared shitless and she just challenges his patience. As Deirdre said at one point - god help us if that's the future queen. And I so didn't like how selfish Ella was the entire book. First, she never even thought how her actions will affect others. The only thing she cared about was "me...me... me... me... me...". And second, even after she got the hint that a friend of hers is troubled by something she discarted it with the thought that she is tired or stressed or whatever. Because that's what friends do. Ella, you suck as a friend. Big time!
Half way through the book thought, Ella finally got the memo. Was about time! She was pretty okay after that and I liked that she tried to make amends(but not the fact that the moment she came back she tried to get Roman back, as some sort of a consolation prize). Didn't liked the fact that Josie told her that she is a good, great person even, but made a few mistakes. Ella is so not a great person and as her best friend Josie should have told her the truth "Ella, you suck, but try to get a grip and BECOME a better person." Things worked out thought, so... I am gonna live with that. But enough about Ella for now. By the end of book she seems to have learned her lesson and grown up a bit.
I didn't liked Tristan in this book at all. First for the fact that he had given up. I don't like quitters. Second, I didn't liked how he tried to comfort Ella - it was all about the sex. Third, I didn't like the fact that he left her based on a third person's opinion about who Ella should be with. Forth, I didn't liked that he returned just because he learnt that Ella is with his brother. You made the decision to leave her, now stick with it.
I will admit that I didn't like Roman much either. He became way too possesive and jelous. Why take Ella back if he can't accept her the way she is?
The best parts of the book for me were when we actually got different poins of view. It was so refreshing to be out of Ella's head. I so wanna see what will happen with Xander and Danni, with Dean and Cameron. Josie started to innerve me a bit. She dismissed Billy so easily.
I also didn't get the fact why Jack didn't attack Ella in Ireland. She was so unprotected there and it's not like he didn't know she is there. Such an easy prey and he missed the opportunity....
So I complained and complained, and complained. Then I keep reading the series? Considering the fact how much Ella annoys me, you must realize that probably the story is extremly interesting and keeps me hooked up. Cause if it wasn't I would have given up ages ago. I am dying to know what will happen next, it's all so unexpected. Hope that book 4 will be published soon and we will finally get some answers. I wanna know what Jasa's game is and also about grantma Bea... Practically, I can't wait!
