I can honestly say that I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. I don’t think the blurb does this book justice and the cover threw me off a bit. I only say this because I started it not really expecting it to be as enthralling as it was. Perennial is very well written and I think Ryan Potter has created a great book. I went from thinking I might not finish it at the start to wanting to read the next book as soon as I finished the last page.
I liked the main protagonist – Alix and thought she was fairly relatable. She was a strong character with a kick-ass attitude which I always love. Lewis is a shady but interesting character that suited the book perfectly. Add William into the mix and you have a love triangle that constantly pulls the reader’s heart in two different directions. The reader really feels for Alix because both of her love interests have some great positives and some very negative ones which makes choosing one very difficult.
This book has some amazing twists and turns that really surprise you. The ending is both fantastic and shocking.
There are some negative though hence why I’ve given it 4 stars. I found that the very ending scenes were quite rushed and they needed more time spent explaining and justifying everything. The book went along at a good steady pace but when you get to the climatic ending it seems to be lacking, as though the author ran out of time and needed to wrap it up quickly.
Overall – This book is a great read and once you’ve started it you feel compelled to finish. If you’re looking for a book that gives you a great exciting ending with lots of surprises thenthis is the book. Good job Ryan Potter
**** 4 Stars
