Book Review: The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson
Book three of The Remnant Chronicles starts off right after Lia and Rafe’s dangerous escape from Venda. Once they are safe, they are quickly faced with the decision of how to save two different countries. A change in Rafe’s status means that they are forced to make some tough decisions. But can they act in time to save the people they love from Venda?
Sigh. I couldn’t read this book fast enough. Such a great series. I was very pleased with the ending (eventually). I also appreciated that we learned a little more about Pauline but still kept true to Lia, Rafe, and Kaden’s journey. Definitely don’t read this series out of order.
“You are who you needed to become, Lia. We’ve both changed out of necessity.”
On things being for the best:
He nodded. “You’re right. It’s probably the best.” Bitterness rose in my throat. I hated things being for the best. They never really were. It was a phrase that sugarcoated the leftover crumbs of our options.
On love and choice:
“Everyone deserves to be loved, General, and not because a piece of paper commands it. Choice is powerful and can lead to great things if not held in the tight fists of a few.”
