BLOG TOUR... Sojourn (Bellator Saga #3) by Cecilia London

Haunted by her experience at The Fed, Caroline tries to create a new identity. A new present, a new future. She can’t escape the memories that dog her when she least expects it, leaving her mired in a depression that she finds difficult to escape. Caroline needs to regain her physical and mental strength if she intends on surviving the journey to find the elusive rebellion. But that’s easier said than done with the ghosts of the past constantly whispering in her ear.

The road is long and dangerous, and there are no guarantees. She and her companions have no idea what they will find when they arrive at their destination. And what they finally discover may change everything.

Part Three of a Six Part Saga. Sojourn (approximately 89,000 words) is not a standalone and must be read after the first two books in the series. Ends in a cliffhanger. 

For readers 18+. This book contains adult situations including explicit sex and violence.

*I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

This Book Nerd Says: 

SOJOURN picks up right where Conscience left us... completely emotionally broken needing answers and therapy. Sojourn is stated to be a transitional book in the series and I would agree that it's spot on accurate. 
(If you haven't read the previous books in the series you MUST do so before reading this book or this review or things will be unintentionally spoiled for you.) 

Now that the warning is out there... 

After her rescue from the Fed, Caroline finds herself nursed back to health by a trio of new friends who happen to steal my heart (LOVE them). London does a great job at adding these new characters to the "cast" seamlessly and letting the unique stories show forth while still keeping Caroline's story in the forefront. 

Caroline is broken physically, mentally, and emotionally. Trying to reconcile her past with her present seems necessary but impossible. The memories are irrepressible and the darkness is overwhelming. 

Once again the story flows seamlessly between past and present giving us a look at Caroline's hurt through her eyes. It makes the story so much more poignant and stirring.

It's hard to say because each story in the series depends on one another but I think this one may be my fave (thus far). I hate to see Caroline in any kind of pain but I think this one gave me the most intriguing reactions. It's still full of emotional twists, gripping plot, and one heck of an ending (!!!) but there's moments of levity that made me smile enough to balance out the intensity. 
Oh and of course there's some of that infamous HEAT that suitable for the mature audience.*wink wink* ((nudge nudge)) 

FOUR stars!!
