Now that Prentiss and D'Lo found Jackson, and the three of them have escaped captivity, what will they do? Save the captors or plot revenge?

We were excited to see that the group with Jackson had a camp set up, and that there was slight laughter in the air. When Prentiss arrives, any suspicions and questions regarding "Jacksons mistakes," were confirmed. And with this, Prentiss was determined to be strong, and be the hero for her friends, but

I’m still enjoying the ride. I wanted to nut punch Jackson, cheered on Prentiss’s spunk and fortitude, and smiled hugely during the last chapter before blinking in surprise.

Major spoilers alert!!!

I was given an ARC for an honest review.

My eyes fluttered shut as his lips found mine, and a pulse of joy rushed from the center of my body through my arms, to my fingertips, down my legs. His arms tightened around me and my mouth opened, deepening our kiss. He tasted sweet like the spring water, then salty like my tears. He pulled back and kissed them away again before holding me tightly in his arms.

I read this episode last week and I'm still having a very hard time putting all of my thoughts into words. This one brought up a lot of memories from my past that I had carefully tucked away in the darkest recesses of my mind. While it would be easy to resent Leigh for putting me through that, I am instead grateful that she can so easily put me through the wringer with her writing. It's certainly cheaper to cry over a book than to pay for therapy! ;)

Into the Woods is darker than the previous ep

Now that Prentiss has found Jackson, what’s next?

As Prentiss and D’Lo rescue Jackson, he leads them to a make shift camp that he is leading with other people from town. Both are excited to discover others that escaped being confined to the camps. Prentiss feels like she is walking on pins and needles due to the uncertainty surrounding her relationship with Jackson. Soon she realizes why…..

Life in camp is quite a bit like a novel. Nothing could prepare Prentiss for the truths that finally reveal

This book is amazing. I don't know how much better this series can get, but with the final book left I'm sure it's going to blow me away.

Prentiss has finally found Jackson and is excited to rescue her friends. She is also sad because she doesn't want Gallatin hurt. No one understands what they are doing like she does. They won't listen to her. She finally leaves only to run back. Can she save her friends before Jackson and the rogues invade the camp? Or will she lose some of the people who mean

AND THE PLOT THICKENS!! Now that Prentiss is free she questions if she made the right decision. Jackson isn't the same and neither is she. Does she want the same things after everything that has happened? Prentiss is floored by how the other kids have been living in the woods and surviving. She fears for the friends she left behind and Gallatin more than she would ever admit to anyone. It's soooo hard to wait for the next book....everything is happening so fast and positions are changing and fee ...more

This is another enjoyable, exciting installment. Prentiss, Jackson and D'Lo have escaped. Once they reach their destination, Prentiss must face some hard truths about Jackson. She goes back to rescue her friends and I didn't see this ending coming. It made me gasp and wish I had the next installment so I could keep reading. At the same time, I am always sad to get to the end of a story I enjoy.

This book is summarized as Episode 5 because it begins with chapter twenty-one where Episode 4 concluded, and ends on chapter five. Prentiss and Dee have managed to escape with Jackson with Gallatin's assistance. As they make it back to the camp where all of the humans have been hiding out, she realizes that she may have just lost the best thing that has ever happened to her. She also realizes how much she matured while on the farm as she sees teenaged boys masked with blood running around like ...more

MY REVIEW (5/5 stars) WOW! This author doesn't hold back with any punches as she keeps us enthralled and glued to the book wanting more...... This section was shorter as only 42 pages for chapters 21 - 25, however, the details were explosive! Spoilers are listed at a minimum for review purposes only- so do not read if you don't want to know.

Prentiss has escaped the camp with DJ and Jackson. They are on the way to Jackson’s camp. But Prentiss is reluctant to get there because that would mean she would never see Gallatin. But things take an interesting turn when she realizes there is more to Jackson than what she thought. Everyone is ready to attach and kill Gallatin’s people and it seems Jackson has not been as truthful as she thought.

It is decided that Prentiss and DJ will go back to the camp and rescue the other kids. When they ge

This is book 5 of the Behind the Stars series and let me tell you Leigh Talbert Moore hasn't left nothing out. When Prentiss finds Jackson has been caught she gets Gallatin to help her and D'Lo to escape with Jackson. When Prentiss gets to the camp where the other kids are at she starts to wonder about her feelings for Jackson after what she sees at the camp. Has she changed so much or had Jackson really been this way the whole time and she ju

Prentiss and D'Lo save Jackson, thanks to Gallatin.
Now Pretiss and D'Lo know what happened after they were kidnapped and what Jackson and the others did during all this time.
I really like this story, but I want to kick Jackson's butt. He is talking about a revenge or kill the kidnappers, but he doesn't care about all the other prisoners? What!?!?!? Are you serious? Only because you want to be the hero? The hero is Prentiss
