The Killing Season by Meg Collett (Part 2 of Fear University)
** Coming Soon!! **
Release Date: 2/1/16
*I received a review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
I just read one of the best stories I've ever read in my life and I'm not even sure I can pull my head together long enough to write a review. I'm completely stunned. Shocked. In despair. This series just replaced one of my top 5. The same top 5 I've been looking to add to for over a year. Add to...not replace. What just happened and how am I going to survive until book 3 releases? I can't remember the last time I felt like this.
And where do I even begin? The Killing Season reeks of dark seduction. And have I ever loved a female protagonist this much before?! This book has my head spinning! Everything in it is intense and heated! The witty bantering is actually witty and holy hell I'm in love with a bad ass alpha female and an alpha male who is just as deadly and twisted. There may be an abundance of hard core heroines and their snarky attitudes in the lit world, but they can go home because Ollie takes the cake. And Luke is every womans darkest desire. He doesn't provoke cute butterflies. He consumes with destruction and fire.
And Sunny, Ollie's best friend and the other point of view presented throughout the story, is so sweet and just the right amount of geeky hilarity that falling in love with her is only natural. However, even she is tainted by the madness and fear. No one in this story is left unscathed and in tact. Every single character in this book maticulously evolves into someone stronger and foreboding.
I don't know how I'm going to make it until the next book. It kept my heart racing and adrenaline surging with twist and every, single shocking revelation. The Killing Season is a dark, intoxicating gem. It's the reason reading a book becomes an addiction. I've hopelessly been consumed by it and honestly do not know what to do with myself. Only one other author has ever had this effect on me. Ever.
I am afraid to read another book right now because I'm that person who tries to always maintain an open mind and much to an authors disdain I refuse to leave a bad review. I know all reviews help, but I can't hurt someone's feelings. Despite my lack of reviews last year I had read at least 150 books searching for a series to annihilate my senses and satiate the need to completely lose my heart and soul to another world. Fear University stunned me because as hard as I've searched to grow a top 10 favorites list, this series just replaced one of the top 5 I've held in such high regard for so long. Before now I thought that feat altogether impossible. I can't seem to move past that.
5 Stars aren't enough.
