Warning: Cliffhanger (Ruuuun Forrest)
Jesse Sullivan’s father commands a dark and terrible army under the guise of beloved church leader. Jesse and her friends must hide deep undercover for fear of arrest or murder by his faithful followers. Their every move brings risk of discovery.
And when your enemy can control minds and teleport at will, there isn’t a single place in the world where you can hide…
“I twirl around the pole once at arm’s length. Caldwell will die. I will be his murderess. I repeat this to myself over and over until my joy surges.”
I’m still having a lot of fun reading this series. I feel kind of wounded inside because of it, but I don’t care. It is still a lot of fun. And really kind of terrifying, too.
We have a new narration buddy this book! Instead of Ally, we have Rachel. She is fun and bubbly, and not at all what you would expect out of a girl that has spent the last couple of years in a mental institution. Also, not the sort of girl you would expect to see after what you learned about her in Dying For Her. I really like Rachel’s storyline, but I can’t say too much about it without spoiling it. I don’t like spoiling things if I can help it. I think Rachel is who Jesse would have been if things had gone just a little different for her, though. And that is the saddest thing of all.
For Jesse’s storyline, we have a lot of worry and struggle. We’re struggling to figure out how to deal with Caldwell still. It is hard because things keep going wrong. Now people are onto you and you keep having to do things you don’t want to. We’re worrying, too, because we have a sister to look after, and a pug, and Ally. We have to make certain Ally is safe.
We also learn new parts to do with the power. The game has changed yet again. Now it isn’t a kill or be killed thing. Everything is different now! I’m getting a bit annoyed with the constant changing of the way everything is going to play out, though. I’m sure there is a reason for it, but I just kind of wish at this stage of the series (we’re in book five now, after all) that things would have stabilized.
The best part of Worth Dying for is the relationships between the characters. It has that feeling of absolute comradery I was initially expecting out of the series, finally.
