Review & Mega Giveaway: Hurt by Travis Thrasher

Hurt by Travis Thrasher
The Solitary Tales: Book Four
David C. Cook / 2013
Find on: Amazon, Goodreads

About the book:

His Rebellion Will Soon Turn to Hope

When Chris Buckley first encountered the mysteries of creepy Solitary, North Carolina, he had little idea how far he would fall into the town’s shadows. After losing the love of his life, Chris tried to do things his way. He hunted answers. Then he gave up trying to find them.

But now Chris comes back to Solitary knowing there’s a purpose for his being there. As he watches his place in a twisted and evil bloodline become clear, Chris waits for the last battle—and wonders who will be left when he finally makes his stand.

The fourth and final book in the Solitary Tales shines light into deep darkness as Chris’s journey to Solitary comes to a dramatic close.

My rating:
My thoughts:

Hurt was a really good read. After being a little disappointed with book three, Temptation (just didn't enjoy it as much as I had thought I would), my expectations weren't that high going in to Hurt. I'm happy to say that I enjoyed this book a lot more that I had anticipated and it was a great conclusion to the Solitary Tales!

The story was intriguing and kept my attention. The supernatural aspects in Hurt were interesting, though some things were very weird and I'm not quite sure how I feel about them.

I really liked the characters in Hurt. I loved seeing Chris grow as a person and he was probably my favorite character from this book.

Overall, Hurt was an interesting read and I really enjoyed it. It was suspenseful and also had some touching moments. I recommend it if you enjoy YA suspense novels with supernatural elements. If you decide to read it, you should definitely read Solitary, Gravestone, and Temptation first - otherwise you'll probably be confused about some things.
