I love Darla Awesome little story.
I wished Darla had of run over Ruth a littlethoroughly too.
Darla is an amazing human
And it s not even angst, it s RAGE I fucking hate Ruth like I ve not hated a character since god Maybe Levana But Ruth s not even a VILLAIN, okay She s an idiot My brain seriously paints her as that one aunt who has taken to technology so wholeheartedly that she literally cannot function without it BEYOND no common sense here I honestly have no clue how Ruth has lasted as long as she has, because she can t even stop to think things out.
ALL THAT NONSENSE ASIDE This story is fantastic I loved getting to see where Darla came from, how she and her mom dealt with the ashfall, and just get that peek into her life that we don t see through Alex s eyes in the first book Character backstories are something I LIVE for, and I didn t think it was possible for me to love Darlathan I did after reading the Ashfall trilogy I was wrong This girl is one of the best characters I ve ever
