Sarah O’Brien is alive because of the pact she and her brother made twelve years ago — James will protect her from their violent father if she promises to never leave him. For years, she’s watched James destroy his life to save hers. If all he asks for in return is her affection, she’ll give it freely.When I first read the synopsis for this book I was like Whaaaat?!?! Ewww. Incest?!?! But then I got intrigued because it's contreversial and something I've never read about in a book. Flawed is categorized as YA so I'm wondering how the author will pull this off. Also, I just love reading about folks who have some pretty messed up lives and with an abusive father, possible incest and forbidden love with brother's best friend this story seems like it'll be high on angst and drama. I haven't been disappointed with any of the Entangled Publishing books I've read, so I'm pretty sure Flawed will be a rarely good read.
Until, with a tiny kiss and a broken mind, he asks for more than she can give.
Sam Donavon has been James’ best friend — and the boy Sarah’s had a crush on — for as long as she can remember. As their forbidden relationship deepens, Sarah knows she’s in trouble. Quiet, serious Sam has decided he’s going to save her. Neither of them realize James is far more unstable than her father ever was, or that he’s not about to let Sarah forget her half of the pact . . .

‘And it came to pass in those days, as it had come before and would come again, that the Dark lay heavy on the land and weighed down the hearts of men, and the green things failed, and hope died.’ – From Charal Drianaan te Calamon, The Cycle of the Dragon.
In the Field of Merrilor the rulers of the nations gather to join behind Rand al’Thor, or to stop him from his plan to break the seals on the Dark One’s prison – which may be a sign of his madness, or the last hope of humankind. Egwene, the Amyrlin Seat, leans toward the former.
In Andor, the Trollocs seize Caemlyn.
In the wolf dream, Perrin Aybara battles Slayer.
Approaching Ebou Dar, Mat Cauthon plans to visit his wife Tuon, now Fortuona, Empress of the Seanchan.
All humanity is in peril – and the outcome will be decided in Shayol Ghul itself. The Wheel is turning, and the Age is coming to its end. The Last Battle will determine the fate of the world . . .
This is the ONLY epic fantasy series that I've faithfully been following for the past decade or so. I'm a little sad that the series is ending but since Robert Jordan has passed I'm also glad that his series is coming to its conclusion. The characters have been dancing around the Last Battle for so long it is time to see who the victor is.
So tell us, what book or books are you anxiously waiting for?
