They're soul mates, but that's no guarantee.
They'll need to rely on each other to find their happily ever after.
Because the fight never ends—it just gets easier with someone at your side.
What a wild ride!
This series was a wild ride! In the final book of the series we get a look at Tyler and Maddie recognizing the new turn in their lives. Thinking the danger is now in the past, they both want to do more, to have meaning and do something that will make them both feel like they are doing something worthwhile. It was like they were bringing the first phase of their life to a close and beginning a new journey together. And man what a journey that was!
I loved that this book was devoted to Tyler and Maddie figuring out what to do next. Usually we get a huge bang at the end of a book and a very short HEA scene. I like that these two authors showed what a struggle it is to overcome such huge obstacles and then have to figure out how to be normal again. It really was the perfect way to close out the series. I can't wait to see what they Huss/McClain have in store for us next! ARC provided by authors.
Maddie and Tyler forever: there’s no one else it could’ve been!
Well, we’ve made it to the end of the Original Sin series, and I’m a pretty sad panda now. Leading up to this last book, I was super stoked to see what was going to happen with Maddie and Tyler now. By the end of Flesh Into Fire, they had pretty much been to hell and back. The threats they had been facing through the first three books have been eradicated, so what could possibly be next for Maddie and Tyler? Were they finally going to be able to just “be” and get down to becoming acquainted with each other, in more than just the biblical sense?
This last book was quite an emotional journey for this couple. I don’t mean they were on an emotional rollercoaster, I’m talking about them finally delving deep inside themselves, and figuring out what the emotions are that they’ve been feeling. For a long time now, Maddie has been of this mindset that she’s a magnet for bad luck, or that nothing good seems to happen to her, or that she’s been endlessly climbing a mountain that just keeps shoving her back down. And Tyler has just shut emotion out of the equation altogether and avoided anything and anyone that would make him interact and relate to another person on an intimate or deep level. But now that these two are together, they’re beginning to realize that they’ve been going at this life thing all wrong.
The depths that Julie and Johnathan take our beloved couple in the emotional development category is pretty deep. I’ve read plenty of Julie’s books in which a character has some pretty intense, a-ha moments, where things click into place for them. And many a time those scenes punched me right in the gut and left me breathless and teary eyed. Well, that same thing happened in this book, only that emotional punch came from Johnathan and a specific scene that our loveable Tyler experienced. I haven’t decided if I want to find him and smack him for making me bawl, or if I want to give him a hug and thank him for the beauty that scene provided. In its imagery and the feelings I experienced while reading it.
The journey that Maddie and Tyler took us on in this series was a whirlwind to be sure. I laughed, a lot and I teared up, (okay, cried) a lot, and I have gained a newfound respect for authors who take on the complex challenge of co-writing stories. I’ve been reading Julie’s books for a lot of years now, so I already knew that she was capable of producing amazing stories. And now reading this series and seeing the depth of talent, emotions and creativity that Johnathan contributed to this collaboration, I can only say how excited I am to see what they bring us next!
This Series is A MUST READ!!!!
