Review of The Wounded (The Woodlands #3) Lauren Nicolle Taylor

Well Sorry, I couldn't post yesterday my internet was down. So today is the third day so review of third book in The Woodlands series; The Wounded. Only two more books one the novella and the last book in the series. If you haven't read my review of first book The Woodlands click here and the second book The Wall here.


 Title: The Woodlands (The Woodlands #3)

Author: Lauren Nicolle Taylor

Genre: YA Dystopian

Series: The Woodlands series

Publisher: Clean Teen Publishing





You think you're in control. That it's your hands on the reins. But I'm starting to think either someone else is driving, or the reins are attached to nothing. Just flapping and snapping in the breeze. What could be simple, never is. Rosa doesn't want to get used to being separated from Joseph, from Orry. So she must find the strength to battle her way back to her family, while mustering the courage to face her father, his secrets. With her best friend, Rash, by her side, she feels blessed and cursed. He is her saving grace, but will Joseph accept him and forgive her for leaving? Rosa must pull these threads together as she hacks her way to The Wall with the aid of her new companions but, heart breakingly, without the one person she'd planned to save. Finding her way home is only the beginning. The biggest changes, the shocking truths, are waiting, hovering over the town like a menacing vapor. The Wounded have waited, nursed, and been dormant for too long. And now they're coming... dragging the ghosts of their lost ones behind them.



My Review

The Wounded (The Woodlands, #3)The Wounded by Lauren Nicolle Taylor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

WoW! The last chapter, I couldn't stop the tears, they are sneaky. This book kept me on edge, I knew I would have to brace myself from beginning but the story threw me off sometimes and I really liked it. I am in love with this series. Hope Rosa comes out unscathed, well as less unscathed as possible. The superiors are ruthless, just Hate them!
And relief after finding out Orry will be okay, Thank goodness. I mean that little guy shouldn't be going through all this.
The writing is capturing, author Lauren is one of my favs. It was as if I was literally there.
Just freaking addictive.
Now off to read next book! Excited and nervous the last installment in the series.
