The choice is steep: Stay on the ledge and steal Van's painting or take the leap and sacrifice her sister. It's another decision in a long line that she's had to make in her life, and though it's easy to make, it's impossible to execute.Thoughts on Hardcore: Volume 2: Allow me to sum up my feelings about this installment in two simple sentences: Evil authors are evil. -and- Thanks for making me all emotional, you fiend.
Jade won't let Cory go until she gets what she wants, but the price for Cory is high. It's never been hard to steal, to lie, but Van changed all the rules. It was the last thing she wanted to do to him. But as much as that choice is agony, there's really only one to make.
Betrayal and pain. Love and loss. Decisions and consequences. The edge Cory walks is razor sharp and sky high, but she can't look down. Not until she makes it to the other side.
Yep, Staci Hart is batting 2 for 2 thus far as Cory's life unravels in the most heartbreaking of ways. For the record, while I still want to kick Jade in the lady parts (that chick is crazy in a way that sends chills down the spine) at least her time as leader of their merry band looks to be falling apart after what she's done to Cory. I'm evil laughing over that right this minute. SERVES YOU RIGHT, CRAZY! Serves.You.Right.
Cory's situation is bleak. From where's she's standing, she has no options. She won't risk her sister and she truly believes Jade will follow through on her threat if Cory backs out. But her heart is breaking over what she has to do to Van and... IT'S HARD TO READ.
I have some seriously mad love for this story. Mad, MAD love. I want to see how it works out, but I FEAR the repercussions of what Cory was forced into. Book three is probably going to gut me. I'm shoring up my defenses now so I don't end up a weeping, miserable mess.
Thanks for making me all emotional, you fiend.
