Can you live a lie?

It’s a ghost town, this place that haunts me, the one that made me.

It’s clear to me that I’ll never outgrow Triple Falls or outlive the time I spent here.

I can still feel them all, my boys of summer.

Even when I’d sensed the danger, I gave in.

I didn’t heed a single warning. I let my sickness, my love, both rule and ruin me. I played my part, eyes wide ope

This book!

There are no words that seem adequate enough to describe how I'm feeling right now.


My eyes are swollen and burning. My nose is stuffy. My heart has been shredded and pieced back together, but there is still a couple of gaping holes that can't be repaired. I'm in love, and I'm heartbroken. I'm happy, and I'm devastated. I feel so many things at once.

If you want to know if Exodus is worth your time, the answer is HELL. FUCKING. YES. It's one of the best books of the year! Hands

I thought Flock was epic and it blew my mind, but I had no idea, no clue, just how epic the conclusion to this story would be. As of now, Exodus is the very best book I've read this year. And I have a feeling it's going to be really difficult to top! It's truly brilliant and a must read.

Where do I start, you guys?! WHERE. DO. I. EVEN. START. First off, I had the pleasure of reading The Ravenhood duet early and it has shaken me to my core. I am a MESS. I can't do ANYTHING but obsess over these characters. I CAN'T STOP THINKING OF THEM. They have CONSUMED me heart and soul! I cry just thinking about them. I AM SO EMOTIONAL over what I read. This is hands down the BEST DUET OF 2020! Words can't do it justice. It is MORE than intense, it is MORE than angsty, it is MORE than passion ...more

For the first time in a very long time, I have no clue how to express my feelings on a book. I have no words in a sense, no clear thoughts, and I’m quite frankly emotionally drained. This duet came out of nowhere with it’s lawlessness, thought provoking, sensual inducing and wickedly addictive storyline that shook up our entire train of thoughts. If you thought that you survived the first book without any scars and you were going to go into this final one unscathed, think again.

I'm not going to lie- I had high expectations going into this one and I didn't really end up loving it. In the begging, the format was very much like book one. We had Cecelia begin a romance with someone and start falling for them. FOR 200 PAGES. The beginning of this book was so slow and I was just waiting and waiting for something to happen. Around 200 pages, something finally happened and I finally started enjoying the story. But, since this is book two of the series, I felt like the

Thanks so much Steph for the Buddy read! This was sure an interesting ride!
How do you follow up the amazing book 1 Flock. Well you do that with an out of this world sequel that is Exodus. It picks up right where Flock ended and then it’s just full speed ahead.
I won’t go into to much detail cause then I will ruin the experience of this story. This is Cecelia‘s journey and it packs a punch. It’s a roller coaster of suspense, heartbreak and most importantly love.

The storyline and its characters are so well thought out, developed and explored. The attention to detail and

Well, for the second time, it’s seems I don’t even know how to express myself because I have no words on how reading this book made me feel. It just made me feel SO MUCH.

How does one judge a story like this with mere words and designate stars. The grief and torment it generates is immeasurable and as one of the reader so eloquently put it- you can't just read it, you have to survive it.

WARNING: You can't go into this book with a closed off heart....or mind. This book tested me and my rational side to the point of questioning what was going on. Shame on me, but I'm here to warn you. This duet in and of itself is one of the best duets I've read in a long time - if ever. This one will sit well with those of us that read for the excitement and the journey; the true discovery of the story unfolding right before our very eyes.

Disclaimer: I am not someone who loves to read angsty stuff. Writing angst is hard because it is really easy for it to go oh so be whining, to be feeling sorry for yourself, for it to be so easily averted if the people involved only had talked to each other. I have no patience when angst in books doesn't work for me, hence my staying away like the plague.

So when I committed to reading this duet, I knew there was going to be majo
4 Stars (?)

Overall Opinion:
I liked this one better than the first book for sure! The pacing was still off though. It felt really slow to start up again and there were times where there was just too much inner dialogue that seemed repetitive and even unnecessary to the point that I even skimmed. Some of the angst seemed (again) drawn out even and unnecessary to the point that it felt like filler to get two books out of it. I’ll be the first to admit that I have come to hate duets just for the pa

Cecelia Horner is not the same girl she was when she first arrived in Triple Falls. Her experiences in this small town have broken, reshaped, and strengthened her. We follow her beautiful journey of self discovery where she learns who she is, and what she's made of. As her heart takes a beating, she figures out she's vulnerable, but also a fighter.

So many secrets, lies and omissions that our heads were swimming. We were desperate to understand what was going on and how it was all going to end.

“I did what thieves do. I stole you!”

I'd like to begin this review by thanking Kate Stewart for releasing this book early and putting us all out of our misery. I love when authors do that!

And thankfully, this book picks up right where Flock ended. There's a mystery person who shows up and boy does he pack a punch. If you thought the first book was intense, sit down and hold on because this book is crazy!

The first part is still in the first book's time frame - meaning Cecelia is ninet

First of all, I have to thank Ms Stewart for not making us wait too long for the 2nd book of this duology. And on top of released a bit early so I could get my Raven on!

Then...another shout out for writing another top 10 of 2020. This book gutted me...over and over again and then add in a few more 'overs'

An unexpected conclusion to this complex and gritty duet.

With how book one ended, I had a number of questions, but also some expectations. And I feel like I'm alone in my thoughts on this book after reading other reviews. While I liked this book, I didn't love it as much as some, and I think a big part of that was the expectations I had going in. The two biggest being how the love triangle was handled, and how the threats to the Ravenhood were covered.

I did read Flock. I didn’t understand it. I thought that I missed something that everyone else got. I thought it would be all sorted in Exodus.

It wasn’t. You can throw gangsters, mobs, boardroom manoeuvres, accidental fires, bar smashing, broken engagements, drugged tattoos, the friend who will always love you, but non, this was not for me. Too many plot holes.

I hate leaving reviews of books I didn’t like. It makes me feel grubby. I have loved and 5 starred other books by Kate Stewart. Everyone

Oh boy...
I still can't put my head on the right place to write a proper review for this book.
It was emotional, intense, complicated and it was a long and painful journey.

Actually I don't really know how I'm feeling about it.

I love all the boys in these books.
Dom, Sean and Tobias owned me! But they also made so many mistakes...
I loved and hated all of them at some point, but I also couldn't stop reading!
And that's something that I can't let go.
