Post’s Author Opinion:
Note: This is a personal opinion, it does not reflect YaoiOtaku’s official position towards the novel.
My wish came true and in the third and final book of this series I got both Isaac and David’s point of views. Having it any differently would have felt wrong and incomplete. Despite this, I liked this book the least of all three.
Again I liked the writing, but I felt like everything went too expectedly, and in the smoothest way possible. Of course I like Isaac and David a lot and I want them to be happy, but, I don’t know, it was plain, mostly the first half of the book. I don’t know how, but so far Keira Andrews managed to almost lose me in the first half of the books, and then pull me in completely in the second half. I can’t put my finger on it, but I think the book being divided in ‘part one’ and ‘part two’ had something to do with it. The division wasn’t justified, but it worked wonders.
I expected something else from A Way Home, a different kind of journey. I just wanted a bit more and as a result I can’t write a proper review about the book. I liked everyone, they were just as great. I liked Isaac and David finding their way together, I liked Aaron and Jen going along, I liked the accepting, loving characters strewn along (June and Anna were great), but that’s about it. A Way Home is a perfect way (ha!) of spending a sunny afternoon, it is a lovely read that’s going to leave you feeling content, but I just wanted a little bit of something else. (It’s not the book, it’s me, I love angst and worry and storm in books.)
