Review: The Outside by Laura Bickle
The Outside starts where The Hallowed Ones ended. With Katie and Alex and Ginger being banned from Katie's home. And oh, I felt for Katie. I really did. Because it must have been very heartbreaking to be separated from your family like that and to have them throw you out to die. Not for a good reason either.
But even though it was sad, I was happy about it, because I wanted to see them out in the world. To see what Katie felt about all of it, even with the world just about ending. I liked getting to know how things were on the outside, about the people left. If there were anyone left at all. Loved reading about their white horse too, Horace was really cute :)
My review won't be that long, I think, because the book isn't too long and I don't want to spoil anything. The book is told from the point of view of Katie, whom I adore. I like the writing in this book, for the most part. Though at sometimes I had a hard time getting past a few words. But most of the time I loved the writing. Though one time there was too much explaining about something that made me not pay much attention, lol. But that happens in most books, and it was mostly interesting to read about :)
I don't know how to talk about this book. There are more vampires in this one. We get to know a bit more about them. We get to know more about the world and some theories about how the vampires got to be there. There is some killing in this book. It's pretty dark at times and sad and heartbreaking. But most of the time it's full of love. Because there is Katie and Alex and they are the sweetest couple. She's a banned Plain girl and he's an English man. Well, 24, which isn't all that old. He is just adorable.
There is a lot of romance in this book. Not too much, though, since you know, it is the end of the world and it's hard to have a normal relationship. But there are a few stolen moments. And they are so sweet and gah. I loved Alex and Katie together. They are just adorable. We also read more about Ginger, and I really, really liked her. We also get to see some new characters. Most of them were a bit weird, and some a bit scary. But I did like reading about them, because it was pretty interesting and new :)
The Outside is an interesting book. It's exciting and awesome. It's a bit creepy too. It's romantic and I loved it. There are bad things happening. But there are also good things. That made my heart warm. I enjoyed this book a lot. Not saying more about it, because I don't want to spoil it :) Just know that you need to read it if you read The Hallowed Ones. And if you haven't read any of them then you need to read both because this is an awesome series. I loved the ending. Though I would love a third book. <3
