Charlie West wakes up strapped to a chair in a room with torture devices around. He's been wounded as if he's already been tortured, but the last thing he remembers is going to sleep in his bed.

And that's just page one!

Daniel | 56 comments Cool! I'm going to have to look it up . . .
Yep, The Last Thing is a series. Heheehee!

It's an amazing series. Especially the end of book two. Anyone's who's read it knows what I'm talking about.

Here's a link to my review of it if you're interested.
https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...
I gave it 5 stars, which I rarely do, even if I really like a book. It's set in France in the 1950s when Algeria was trying to gain independence from France.

Oh, cool! How many books is it?

Don't tell me... They both fall in love with the same dashing knight, right?

Hmmm...I might enjoy that. Stories like that can be fun! I'll have to check them out! :D
I don't know about Mojo though based upon his reaction. :P

I hate love triangles, especially in YA fiction.

I just think it's really bad for us to teach our children that it's okay to lust after people who are taken, or that it's okay to lust after someone when you are in a relationship.
They try to get around it with this, "oh, they're betrothed, but don't want to be, and they aren't in love with their betrothed."

But that's not something one can judge, and it's a very bad message to send to young boys and girls that it's okay as long as you think the other person isn't really in love.

It's just... Not good.
And I'm not picking on River Of Time, I've never read it, so can't judge. I'm talking about the entire "Teen" market as a whole. Nearly every single YA book has a love triangle now, even the Christian ones.


message 33: by [deleted user] (new)

You have a very valid point.

Christian books should hold a higher standard than secular fiction when it come to romance. But because love triangles are so prevalent in today's YA fiction, Christian authors could decided to set an example by dealing with these situation in a Godly way.

Sometimes people are attracted to someone who is engage/married. It is not necessarily 'wrong' to admit feeling this way, but how the person deals with these feelings is very important. If Christian authors want to face this situation, they should set an example of the characters turning their feelings over to God and asking him to help them have holy thoughts.

Right. The characters should acknowledge that said feelings are wrong, then try to move on with God's help. Instead of "oh, this betrothed person is my one true love", and through a series of conflicts and struggles, the person eventually breaks their engagement one way or another.

Mojo, you bring up a very good point I had not really thought of before.
I can see why you don't like love triangles, and I think you have very valid reasoning for it.

Love triangles are definitely the trend in YA.
