* I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This book is a prequel to Kate Wrath’s “E” Series.
If you have not yet had the distinct pleasure of reading the E Series, I highly suggest you do so.
I read A LOT of books (over 100 already this year and it is only July) and because of this, it takes a special author to stand out to me. Kate Wrath is one of those stand outs.
This book may be a prequel to the E Series, but I actually suggest that you read the series first and then read JASON AND LILY. There are a few spoilers in this book that will reveal truths that Eden is looking for in the book “Eden”.
This book is Lily’s diary. In “Eden” the diary is discovered but Eden is unable to read it. All she knows is that it contains the story of how she grew up and how she came to meet “Jason”.
JASON AND LILY is so well written that once you begin reading it, you will not want to put it down.
Kate Wrath has a true gift for both world-building and character development. It is impossible to read this book and not form a picture in your mind of Lily’s world.
Every teenager (or grown-up who remembers being a teenager) can readily relate to Lily’s conflicted emotions about growing up.
The descriptions of the celebration of ‘Freefall’ are so vivid that there is no way that anyone who reads this book will not instantly smile and create pictures in their mind of what it must have been like for Lily.
Is there darkness in this book? Yes! Lots! There is fighting, there is death, there is destruction and despair. But, there are also moments of peace, life well lived, the building up of community and family as well as moments of unfettered hope.
What makes this book such an amazing piece of fiction is the author’s ability to pull the reader into the story. I defy anyone to read Kate Wrath’s books and remain emotionally uninvolved. It simply is not possible.
I rate this book as 5 out of 5 stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ If a higher rating were possible, I would have given it, but 5 is the highest rating allowed.
If you have not yet read read the E Series I suggest you start reading it right away. There are a lot of books available both on and offline, and it is often difficult to know what books to spend your hard-earned money on. Kate Wrath’s books are worth every cent and more. Buy them today and you will not be disappointed.
I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.
“Some people think that when we’re young we don’t know how to love yet, but I would argue that the young love better than anyone. When we’re young, we’ve not yet learned to hold our love back. That we should be afraid. That anything that can be given can also be taken away.”
