Goodreads Synopsis

Audra Mercer is planning to destroy the world. Well, maybe just the realm. It’s taken almost fifteen years for her to rise from the ashes of trauma and place herself at the top of the Aero branch, the prime position to enact her plan to bring the branch hierarchy crashing down. She’ll spare no one and stop at nothing to secure her vengeance.

As Mercer’s third in command, Blossom is drowning in secrets. She’s lying to her boss, her friends, her allies, her lovers. She’s playing both sides and hoping to have both her life and her happiness by the end. But one misstep will mean showing her colors before she loses everything.

Following in the footsteps of Gemini’s kidnappers, Raene assumes a Terra identity and allows herself to be taken across the Alderwood. Parson secretly follows, but if he can’t keep up, they’ll lose both Raene and all hope of finding Gemini.

Disclosure – I received an arc of The Snow Owl from the author and all thoughts are honest and my own opinion.

My Take

You guys, it’s over!! The Snow Owl was one of my anticipated releases of 2018 and it comes out today. The book is a continuation of Hale and Gemini, find my review here, and it really felt like coming back home because these characters are so dear to me. I think I have mentioned this before and I’ll say it again, R.S McCoy’s writing is easy to grasp yet gripping just makes you want to read more. I marvel at how she’s able to intertwine Blossom’s, Raene and Gemini’s stories without it being & sounding repetitive.

What I liked about The Snow Owl other than the writing, is the characters. The men are witty and charming and the women strong and fierce & when they come together they make quite a pair. As the plot develops you get more and more engrossed in the book and not want to pause or stop. Another thing I liked is the fact that the author was able to build & grow this whole world and it feels so real.

What I didn’t like was the fact that the ending was predictable. Up there I said I liked the plot, I didn’t like the the fact that the twists lacked that wow factor mostly because they are easily predictable, but the good thing is that they don’t take away from the story and it’s still enjoyable.

“She was like the snow. She would never be satisfied with less than the whole world.”

That being said, I am really happy and content with the ending of the Alderwood Tales Series and I’d definitely recommend if you’re looking for a series to start on. If you want to know my thoughts on book 1 and 2 check here and here respectively.
