“Most sinners do not linger in our memory like you…”
I was extremely excited to hear that they would be getting their very own book in the companion novel Sinner. With alternating POVs, both Cole and Isabel shine, proving why so many readers fell in love with them. Their relationship is hot and cold, yes and no, push and pull; and it is SO much fun to read about. Both are arrogant, sarcastic, and teeming with issues – which offers up glorious repartee. As funny as they can be at times, though, my heart hurts for these two.
“I knew just how it felt when your worst fear
was that you would be yourself.”
They need understanding and unconditional love. Who better to seek it from than each other? Wonderful secondary characters and a couple of lovely cameos from old friends make this a delightful read. Stiefvater’s writing is stunning as usual, and she absolutely nails the banter between these engaging characters. A must-read for Cole St. Clair and Isabel Culpepper fans!
“‘It sure is ugly.’
‘Ugly never hurt a thing.’
I scoffed. ‘Oh, ugly has hurt some things.
It’s just that pretty hurts more.’
Thank you to the publisher for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
