Review: Katie's Hope (Rhyn Trilogy #2) by Lizzy Ford

Synopsis (Goodreads):
Three weeks after leaving Rhyn, Katie learns the Immortals have no intention of letting her go despite her deal with their leader. Rhyn discovers he can only protect her if he accepts his place among the Immortals. However, doing so may cost him the only thing that matters.

Meanwhile, demons are closing in, and Death orders Katie killed. Death's assassin and the demons pursue them, and Katie will have to choose between Death or Hell to save Rhyn from both.
My Thoughts:  For the love of wicked, winged demons, this was a good one!  You know when you get so into a book that you have a take a break in the middle of reading it because you feel like you're going to burst into tears or hyperventilate or punch something?  Yeah.  I had that.  Not the punching something, the other two.  I was all "Oh, noes! Katie! Don't trust them! No! Run away!" and then I had to go to a quiet corner to compose myself.

*deep breath*  So.  Good book.  You know, if you like to feel your heart in your throat for over half of it.  Which, apparently, I do.  I'm not going to say I'm surprised at how good this book was but I am surprised at how emotional I got toward the end.  Katie and Rhyn have everyone telling them that they're all wrong for one another.  They have people tripping over themselves to convince them that the only choice they have is to let one another go.  On top of that, they both have the shittiest families ever.  I mean, really!  Katie's sister is a shallow, power-hungry bitch.  All of Rhyn's brothers seem to want him dead or in Hell.  Holidays must be a hoot at Chez Immortal.

This book honestly left me tied in emotional knots.  I hated the way everyone treated both Katie and Rhyn like their wants were less important than everyone elses.  I hated it, but at the same time I respect that both of them are kinda screwed up and they need to see that they are worthy of one another.  They have to go through this before they can come out happy on the other side.  Still... *whimpers* I feel for those two.

Once again, Lizzy Ford has written an story that captured both my imagination and my heart.  I so deperately want these two misfits to find their happy ending that it's ridiculous.  Book 3 can't come soon enough.
