I have to admit that I have come across this series countless times on this site and I have always resisted reading it. I too have enjoyed your numerous stories so it's not like I had anything against your writing. And as another reviewer already mentioned, your stories are always very creative and interesting. But I couldn't shake the vibe that this would be very dark and full of unrepentant angst and I just wasn't in the mood for that. I'm usually game for just about anything but for some reason I had it fixed in my head that this wouldn't be the series for me. I had cheated a few times too by reading some reviews and based on that I just felt that this might be too dark, harsh and depressing, a long series that I didn't feel like investing in.
But when it popped up yet again in The Story Of The Moment section, for some reason I ended up clicking on it and finally taking the plunge.
And I have to say that I was totally wrong. Was it dark and full of angst? Yes, but that wasn't a bad thing at all. In fact it was a very compelling series and depicted a complex relationship. They went through so much and yet there was love and devotion between them as well. Their world was harsh and bleak but it fit so well with the story and I wanted to know how they could survive in that world and what their relationship would be. I especially liked the way you incorporated Aliens into it too, that was a nice twist that I didn't expect. Once I started reading this series, I couldn't stop.
This is also the first time I've read an ending where the two main characters die in each other's arms and NOT felt pissed off, cheated or thought it was a lame way to end it. It made sense to me that they would die together and it didn't seem sad or lame, just right that they were together and still utterly devoted to each other.
And with Rebirth, you also managed to make that believable as well. It didn't seem tacked on, forced or discredit what had gone before. It seemed right that they would have gone through so much, even death itself, to finally be reunited and given another life, another chance at happiness together. I have to say that I would have been satisfied with either ending but I definitely prefer Rebirth.
Thanks for sharing this. It was well worth it and I am kicking myself for being so unfairly judgmental and stubborn about not reading it before.
This was wonderful! I love reading your stories, because I never know what it's going to be. There's always some sort of angst, but the ending can be bitter, happy, harsh, depressing, brilliant, delightful--and sometimes more than one of those at the same time. I don't know how you do it, but your writing's always creative and extraordinary!
Fantastic series...their world was so unique, engrossing and I enjoyed every second of their journey. I loved everything, from the moment they met, when she was a child...to their ensuing adventures, the end, and their new beginning.
-I like this new, different Logan...he's usually portrayed as kinda promiscuous..so it was an interesting and neat twist about how Marie was the only one he was with.
-I usually stay away from dark endings, esp. when one or both of them end up gone...but, this is the first one where I was totally okay when they died. I think it was b/c they went through so much...a lot of it together..and their love and devotion stayed true and they never gave up on each other. It wasn't an easy love, and they were sure put through the wringer, but it was always felt. So, I thought they had a fitting end..and liked that it was in each other's arms. That said...I was thrilled that they got a chance at a new beginning cause it's always nice reading about second chances, even if it's for a fictional couple.
Thank you so much...it was truly a pleasure to read.
