Can you live a lie?

It’s a ghost town, this place that haunts me, the one that made me.

It’s clear to me that I’ll never outgrow Triple Falls or outlive the time I spent here.

I can still feel them all, my boys of summer.

Even when I’d sensed the danger, I gave in.

I didn’t heed a single warning. I let my sickness, my love, both rule and ruin me. I played my part, eyes wide open, tempting fate until it delivered.

There was never going to be an escape.

All of us are to blame for what happened. All of us serving our own sentences. We were careless and reckless, thinking our youth made us indestructible, exempt from our sins, and it cost us all.

I’m done pretending I didn’t leave the largest part of me between these hills and valleys, between the sea of trees that hold my secrets.

It’s the reason I’m back. To make peace with my fate.

And if I can’t grieve enough to cure myself in my time here, I’ll remain sick. That will be my curse.

But it’s time to confess, to myself more so than any other, that I’d hindered my chances because of the way I was built, and because of the men who built me.

At this point, I just want to make peace with who I am, no matter what ending I get.

Because I can no longer live a lie.

He’s the devil you are never supposed to meet, dressed in Armani. And a clear threat to me.
Damn! In its rawest form, this right here clearly best describes the book I just read, 
“There is a legend about a bird which sings just once in its life, more sweetly than any other creature on the face of the earth. From the moment it leaves the nest it searches for a thorn tree, and does not rest until it has found one. Then, singing among the savage branches, it impales itself upon the longest, sharpest spine. And, dying, it rises above its own agony to outcarol the lark and the nightingale. One superlative song , existence the price. But the whole world stills to listen, and God in His heaven smiles. For the best is only bought at the cost of great pain… Or so says the legend.”—Colleen McCullough, The Thorn Birds

Reading Exodus felt like watching everything fold out on the big screen. Starting where it left with Flock, the angst and adrenaline didn't stop until I hit the end. I went from curious to swooning to aroused to sobbing that I do not know what to feel anymore except what's only clear with me is that I have my heart out poured over the book. It was EPIC in every proportion. How it was penned was brilliant that I couldn't stop reading until I finished it. Mind you, it was longer than Flock but it's length was immaterial. In fact I want MORE. I don't care if it will take me forever to read it because it was that spectacular.  It wasn't just the story, the characters held a special place in my heart too, that even thinking about them makes me smile with nostalgia and sob. I am that affected by this book. 

Affected how? I. AM. A. SOBBING. MESS! My heart hurt so damn much and I am an emotional wreck. I finished EXODUS in less than a day because that's how good the story is. It is UNPUTDOWNABLE. I was invested in it just as much as I was invested with the characters. Page after page, I was thrown into an abyss of pure raw, poignant and torture. My heart is bruised and broken. Kate may have stitched it the best way she knows how but she ruined all other books for me. Now I am just in my bed, relieving scene after scene and sobbing some more. Tugged heartstrings is an understatement. Kate Stewart more than did that with EXODUS

This is the best duet of 2020! I thought I love Drive, which of course I really do. But talking about Ravenhood Duet? All bets are off, because this is my favorite book to date. Books I would love to own a paperback of.
