it was amazing

Water picks up not long after the end of Fire. We swap between Roxy and Jasmine's POV's as before and let me tell you, it's intense. I devoured Water in a matter of hours. I will say I'm a bit disappointed with the changes in Roxy and Jasmine. I felt like they switched personalities. Roxy is not someone that I'd ever expect to sit around waiting for someone to save her (let alone a guy) and yet she does that more than once. Jasmine's betrayal broke me to the point where if she were to be killed off, then I'd smile and cheer. I really feel like their were some pretty big mistakes made in that regard. The end result: I have lost all love for her and have little to no interest in her parts of her story. At this point, I'm honestly not sure where the story will head, or what will happen. Fair warning, the end of this book dropped off just like the first one. That's not to say I didn't extremely enjoy Water, I did. I think my expectations might have been a little too high. Some questions are answered, but I already knew/guessed the answers, so I wasn't as satisfied as I could have been. I really hope Roxy's story-line improves and well, if I'm being honest Jasmine can go choke for all I care. (Harsh but she deserves it.) I hate that it seems like this review is negative, it's not - I absolutely love this trilogy. I can't wait for the next one, my feels are just hurt at the moment. I wouldn't be this sad, if I didn't absolutely love/enjoy/adore these books! Now excuse me while I...

P.S. This book cannot be read without first reading Fire.
