Truth - Aleatha Romig So I decided to commit to the series, because while it wasn’t what I expected I do think that its worth another shot if only to find out more about Tony Rawlings. Truth did now disappoint, it was just as unique as Consequences, but with a far superior plot. Someone said that Consequences was a really long prologue to Truth, and I agree, but everything that the first book lacked, this second book made up for. A great plot line, which went in many different directors. Lead characters that were 3-dimensional. Good rhythm, and good ending.

Several of the questions that entered my mind during Consequences were answered in this book. I left Truth feeling like that was great story even though I didn’t understand a lot of the decisions made by the characters I thought they deserved my respect enough to be able to accept their decisions. So I don’t want to ruin this book for anyone, so I want to say as little about the plot as possible. So again we meet Claire, and she is mysteriously let out of prison, and seeks a new life, and revenge on Tony for what was done to her. Tony is also viewed in a new light, I think getting to see him interact with more people outside his home, helped me to soften a bit towards his character I still think he’s s psycho but I also think that he has the potential to not be such. Now there are a lot more secondary characters who play bigger roles in this book, but again I don’t want to give too much away, I think that it is these secondary characters new and known who make this a much better book than the first. I think that there are so many moments in here, its hard to pinpoint those that I loved and those that I hated, but I think I would have to say that in all of this I think the intelligence of both Claire and Tony are put to the test, and I think that the way they outwit each other was outstanding and lent to the book a lot. Also, again there was the back and forth between past and present, and I thought that was god way to tell Tony’s back story and it lent to helping the book from becoming boring at times.

That said, I want to end by saying the last 20% of this book is a head trip, and it’s hard to imagine not reading the last book just for clarification. I think that the end was fantastic, because the way it was done, just kept me on my toes, and I couldn’t imagine what was happening in there. I recommend especially if you got through Consequences, no matter how u got through, I promise Truth is significantly better.
