Severance is the bone-chilling, adrenaline-filled sequel to Volition. Charlotte finds herself hoping against reason that her life couldn’t really have taken the devastating turn that it has. With Joel still dangerously out of the picture, and no signs that he may ever come back, she finds herself up against an even more dangerous threat. A sexy and cunning threat that is bound to tear what she has always known to be her reality down for good.
When things finally start to look up, another curve-ball is thrown her way, promising to give her what she’d hoped for since meeting Joel, an answer it seems that came a little too late. What Charlotte thought she’d once known to be the truth filters through her fingers, leaving her to believe that her world and the afterworld are much more tangled than she’d originally expected. She comes to find that love and lust are no longer the sole deciders of her fate, but revenge. A lifetime of secrets unfold and Charlotte discovers that Joel hasn’t been the only one watching over her all of these years.
I liked Severance, but not as much as I enjoyed Volition. I did get my wish- Joel was not as perfect in this book. I enjoyed seeing a more human aspect to him. And the storyline was pretty creepy. Stalkers really creep me out. I loved reading about Joel and Charlotte and seeing them overcome all the odds, but there is one thing that I just don’t like in my stories. And that is babies. I know, I know- you can’t believe it! But hey if that type of thing doesn’t bother you, then you will probably love the book! (and for the record, I don’t have a personal vendetta against babies or people that have them, I just prefer to not see them pop up in the books that I read).
I think that Joel and Charlotte’s story is a compelling one. I enjoyed getting to know them, and I really liked the edge of your seat storyline in the second half of the book. I was a little worried that things would be happy go lucky for the couple and that th book would be boring, but that wasn’t the case. There are plenty of roadblocks for the two to keep you turning pages. Volition and Severance is a good duaology for people that don’t mind angels and a little religion.
