I tried to stay away from this book. You might be wondering why. Well, I wasn't a fan of the third book in the Mercy Fall series. I did love the first two books, though. I have this love/hate relationship with Maggie's books. I love some of them with a fiery passion (The Raven Cycle, Mercy Fall books 1&2) and loath the rest with the same passion (The Scorpio Races, book 3 in the Mercy Fall series). With me, there's no in between with her books. I feel like she can be very prose-y, sometimes so much that I get lost and end up scratching my head because I feel so lost. But other times her writing makes me want to weep like a little baby because it can be beautiful and so mind blowing that it gives me chills.
Everybody thinks they know Cole's story. Stardom. Addiction. Downfall. Disappearance. But only a few people know Cole's darkest secret -- his ability to shift into a wolf. One of these people is Isabel. At one point, they may have even loved each other. But that feels like a lifetime ago. Now Cole is back. Back in the spotlight. Back in the danger zone. Back in Isabel's life. Can this sinner be saved?
I’m happy to tell you that I loved Sinner with all my heart! It was easy and perfect. Her writing style blew me away once again and went hand in hand with the characters. And this book is all about the characters. I loved how Isabel and Cole’s story took center stage. There’s not much going on that doesn’t have to do with them and I loved that. They were always my favorite characters in the other books in the series and I always thought that there wasn’t enough of them in the books. Well, we get a LOT of Cole and Isabel in Sinner.
I’m happy I gave Sinner a try. There’s a lot of angst, swoony moments, a little bit of wolf and awesome new characters that will make your heart melt, I’m looking at you adorable Leon! If you love Maggie, then you’ll love this book.
