"Even in the midst of my darkness, through a storm of pain, Lyric brings me calm."
Raveling You picks up shortly after the events of Unraveling You. Ayden's still struggling to remember the horrifying details of his past, while his friendship with Lyric is taken to the next level. Lyric wants a more physical relationship, but how can Ayden give that to her when just the slightest touch triggers memories and emotions from his past?
So this is book 2 of Ayden's mysterious past and we are no closer to having any answers or learning anything new. This is frustrating for a series because the reader needs to stay engaged and I struggled with this book.
In the first book, nothing was resolved, the novel was too short and felt incomplete, and no significant events really happened; however, because I loved the characters and their relationships and the plot, I still loved the book despite its flaws.
Because I loved the characters' and their world so much, I was dying to read the second book hoping Sorensen would step up her game and write something that would make up for the first book. I still want to know what happened to Ayden but I am not that eager to read book 3.
Sorensen actually managed to do a worse job of things in book 2 by introducing even more new conflicts, once again, with no resolutions, making it equally, maybe even more, unsatisfyingly short than the first book, and managed to fit more insignificant events into the novel instead of working towards tying up loose ends.
This makes me so sad because I love Lyric and Ayden and their parents and their world so much, but the presentation of the novel just ruins everything for me.
