The third story in this series, it will continue to appeal to those who read the first one. This story introduces a little darkness, with unintended consequences and the further issues brought about as a result. The story ends positively, while leaving room for more growth. After all, this is a coming of age story where only one of several main characters have actually come of age.
For the plot, I give it a 9, which is an A+. In technical quality, a solid A with an 8. For appeal, another 9. Frankly, this story simply would not be able to stand on its own. As a sequel to the first two in the series, it is excellent however. The sex in the story is not blatant. If anything, it is understated throughout. If you're looking for a stroke story, this is not it. If you're looking for an enjoyable read, with romance, drama and real-life issues, you will like this.
Strangely, I've not reviewed any of the Rebecca Danced trilogy until now, so I'll use this as an opportunity to review them all.
Months ago, possibly even more than a year ago, I read a story called Rebecca Danced, from an author called EzzyB. This story affected me deeply in many ways, and I even went to the extent of buying a copy from Amazon. I quickly found the sequel entitled Anita's Rescue and found that equally enthralling. I was overjoyed When EzzyB started posting the last part of the trilogy, State Of Chaos.
'So what?' I hear you say, 'Get to the bloody point!' The point is that the three stories combine, synergise even, into a sum of parts greater than the whole. We have a hero that's too good to be true, until we find that he's as flawed as all the rest of us. A group of teenagers with uncommon talents and a social conscience; but more than all of this we have a tale of stunning breadth and depth, that's almost impossible to leave unread. If it was a book, you wouldn't be able to put it down.
The whole point of reading novels is to find a way to escape from reality for a while, but, if during that foray into escapism the reader finds new ways to connect with their own reality, then the author has done his work well. EzzyB has created a tour de force that almost leaves the reader breathless, and actually caring about the fictitious lives of the characters.
Read the stories in order;
1. Rebecca Danced
2. Anita's Rescue
3. State Of Chaos
Read them and enjoy!
