Reading Call Down the Hawk back when it came out, absolutely blew my mind. I took my time with it and finishing the book changed something in me. I can’t explain it in other terms. I have yet to revisit the book but Mister Impossible was one of my most anticipated releases for 2021 and I have some mixed feelings about it.
The review might contain spoilers.
The world is at stake for the dreamers as everything they’ve known might end. How can they save them and save the world? What is dooming the world? Who is in the right and who in the wrong?
The second book in the Dreamer trilogy is a push against so many limits.
What I liked about this book: Truthfully, I don’t know what I liked about this book. This book was very confusing for me and binging it is not the approach you should take up on it. It’s more of a read-at-a-slower-pace to process everything kind of book. With that being said, expanding on the Dreamer world was done wonderfully and learning more about the challenges that Ronan faces was thrilling. I liked reading about Ronan and Hennessy, Declan, Jordan and Matthew. I adore Matthew and I always feel bad for him but I am hopeful his ending will be a happy one, just as I hope the same for Ronan and Adam, Hennessy, Declan and Jordan.
There was a review on Goodreads that said “Pls let Ronan Lynch live out his gay cottagecore dreams” and I 100% agree.
What I didn’t like about the book: I was sad and disappointed for Hennessy because I feel like she made a lot of progress in her self-love journey by the end of Call Down the Hawk which was reverted after her losses and she went back to her self-destructiveness. It is understandable because of how devastating her loss was and I only hope that she survives the series and finds her own happiness and stability.
I really don’t like Bryde and I don’t trust him and I don’t like the plot twist and the end of the book and this book gave me major trust issues.
A quote: “It’s hard to see the pattern when you’re in it, but humans do the same things again and again; they are not that complicated. In a pair, they are individuals. Unique. Unlike. If you have half a dozen, two or three will remind you of each other. By the time you have one hundred, two hundred, you see types repeated again and again. Place two types together; they react a certain way. Place them with a different type; they react a different but equally predictable way. Humans form into groups along the same lines again and again; they fracture into smaller groups along other predictable lines again and again.”
My Rating: 3.5/5 stars
