So at first, I was a little hesitant to read this. The theme just...was a little iffy, y'know? But I trusted Jaye to handle it carefully, and, well...she did it. I fell into the story, I fell for Lacy and her hard place in life, I fell for Aaron as I risked all to help. It was such a sweet little story, with some very important truths. The world isn't always bright and cheerful. But no matter how sinful our past, once we have truly repented of it, once we are made new, that sin has faded away...
Definitely a more grown-up book due to Lacy's "profession" but as someone who cares deeply about fighting human trafficking, I loved this book and Aaron's behavior towards Lacy.
Wow. In Lacy, Knight takes a difficult issue and writes it into a beautiful and moving story with compelling characters.
As soon as I realized this novella was about Aaron, I was so excited. Aaron needed his own story and I'm so glad he got it. Both Aaron and Lacy were very interesting and realistic main characters and I loved them both. I didn't connect as much with Lacy, but that could be because she had a limited POV. (Or maybe not one at all. I can't remember.) I also enjoyed seeing Timothy ...more
This was very helpful in helping me return to reality more gently (though the plot was still plenty to keep me reading way past my bedtime) after the intense ride that Bitter Winter was. :) I read this is two late nights, and it was beautiful.
While Jaye did an amazing job with the giant cast of characters in Bitter Winter, it was nice to have a smaller cast in this one. Timothy and Aaron made great MC's, and I loved their brother relationship.
Yes, the title character is a prostitute. But while J ...more
I almost felt like Lacy was a throwback to all of my favorite things about Resistance (the first Ilyon book). Because of this, it is marked as one of my favorite Ilyon books.
Why? Lacy is a slow(ish) books, focusing more on the characters and their relationships, taking time to, well, take time. I just loved it! Aaron was an excellent main narrator. I didn't remember him a whole lot - his last major appearances, I believe, occurred in book 2 - and I actually found that I enjoyed him! He wasn't as ...more
Aw, that was a sweet story! Some excitement and danger, romance, and unexpected happenings. I enjoyed! May have more of a review to come when this novella officially releases!
WOW. Such an impactful, inspiring, and heartbreaking story. There is so much emotion and beauty packed into this little novella that I don't know where to begin!
Can we all give Aaron a round of applause? I was a bit hesitant to read a story "starring" him, as while I've liked him as a side character, I wasn't sure how he would carry the weight of his own story.
After finishing Lacy, I'd say he's nearly a strong a protagonist as Jace (in different ways though)
Aaron's story is di ...more
I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that this time around, there were going to be two books released in this series at the same time. Lacy was a character I had not heard of at the time (she is introduced in Bitter Winter), but I had enjoyed Jaye's other novellas, which had to do with Jace. And if you love the story world Jaye has created, then this is a wonderful new addition.
However, I did not feel that the story was all that necessary to the overall narrative. Lacy is not a ...more
