Seventeen-year-old Violet has always been expected to sit back and let the boys do all the saving.
It’s the code her father, a member of the Reign of Terror motorcycle club, raised her to live by. Yet when her dad is killed carrying out Terror business, Violet knows it’s up to her to do the saving. To protect herself, and her vulnerable younger brother, she needs to cut all ties with the club—including Chevy, the boy she’s known and loved her whole life.
But when a rival club comes after Violet, exposing old secrets and making new threats, she’s forced to question what she thought she knew about her father, the Reign of Terror, and what she thinks she wants. Which means re-evaluating everything: love, family, friends . . . and forgiveness.
Caught in the crosshairs between loyalty and freedom, Violet must decide whether old friends can be trusted—and if she’s strong enough to be the one person to save them all.
I feel like I’m constantly waiting on the next book from Katie McGarry. And as we head into Fall 2016, suddenly January 2017 doesn’t seem that far away for “Long Way Home.” Starting from her first book “Pushing the Limits,” McGarry has been a must read, and an auto-buy for me. I love her style of alternating narrators allowing the reader to truly understand her characters. Her series are interwoven with overlapping characters that take turns being the “stars” of their own books while allowing the audience to check in with past favorites.
“Long Way Home” focuses on a couple of characters that we have gotten to know (in the periphery) over the last couple of books in the Thunder Road series. Violet and Chevy have grown up together, but teenage complications have kept them apart. I have been eagerly awaiting the couple featured in this book almost since this series’ inception. I’m viewing this one as a bit of a birthday gift to me, as it’s release is merely the day before. I will be procuring “Long Road Home” literally as soon as I’m able, and will be hibernating with it until read. If you haven’t yet picked up a McGarry book do yourself a favour, start at the beginning and let the stories unfold around you. You won’t be disappointed – I never have been.
