My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Woohoo what a ride! Hop onto that crazy train for a thrill that's going to leave you in a puddle on the floor!
I'm utterly in love (and love is putting it mildly) with Keri Lake's work. Her characters, her storyline, her writing style and last but definitely not least the atmosphere of Interpid, once again blew my mind.
Sera and Ty are fantastic. So easy to relate to, although they have such complex and damaged personalities.
Sera, is endearing: innocent, strong and smart, she is a resilient young woman who stands up for herself and braves her deepest fears in order to help those she cares for. She is caught in the middle of a revenge war she has no idea about, and Ty, the only person to make her feel alive and who offers her the distraction she so badly needs, might also be the only person who's going to ruin her.
"Like light and dark, fire and water, the moon and the sun trying to come together. We didn’t mix."
He is ruthless, really, does Sera even have a choice when it comes to Ty? His game is merciless, his charming ways and his intrepid activities certainly caught Sera off gard. The mystery that surrounds him is intriguing! I felt and fell for him, moved by demons that haunt him.
“You’re the knife in my skin tonight. The temporary pain that’ll make me forget everything else."
Dark, raw, sad, sometimes chilling, the story is perfectly balanced with sweet and exciting moments; Intrepid is about love, promises, and more than that, family. It's a whirlwind of emotions, leaping from hot to cold, a play of pull and push that's wonderfully addicting and send you reeling out of your comfort zone.
I'd like to finish by telling you how magnificent the Detroit Keri depicts in her books is. I probably will never visit it (well except for it's airport in a few weeks but I digress) but that I've come to love it thanks to the artistic vision of the author. She has a gift for taking the readers to places (usually decaying places) that exist and for making you feel their souls, for making you see the beautiful in the broken, usually thanks to extreme activities, (that you definitely need to research as well)! The feeling of being immersed into her world and her words is strong. You not only read a splendid story but you feel like you're a part of it. Thank you for the experience, it's one one the best feelings ever!!!!
