{Review} Released by Shay Savage
Released: Caged Book 3 - Shay Savage

The third book in the Caged series, Released picks up precisely where Trapped left off, with Liam spiralling down into complete self-destruction now that Tria has left him. And it's got me thinking…

 

Liam is not your typical romance bad boy hero. He's not just a collection of rough edges waiting to be smoothed by the right woman. He's pretty severely damaged emotionally, and it shows in his reactive personality and lack of real attachment to anyone but Tria. He didn't mean for her to leave, and his reasons for running out in a panic make sense, even if they're not an excuse for the way that action comes across. But now that she's gone, he's beyond lost, and for a dangerous while, he lets the rest of his world fall apart. For someone like Liam, rock bottom has a whole new meaning.

 

We watch Liam fall apart, lose his job, wander the streets, and ask for help. But finding Tria doesn't fix everything, and she's still not sure she can trust him to stay around and stay off drugs. Still, he puts her and the baby first, and in a rather fortunate turn of events, they finally begin to reconcile.

 

Released is a story of closure, a series of falls that lead to Liam finally facing his past, his problems, and his shortcomings with Tria and becoming a better man for it. He can't erase the past, but he finally confronts it, allowing himself to see how his family wasn't alone in making poor choices, and eventually dealing with the grief and trauma he's been bottling up and only unleashing in cage fights for so long. Fortunately, though, he doesn't lose that edginess that makes him such an interesting character to begin with. He's still crass and crude, still prone to anger and overreaction, but he's also cognizant of the consequences of flying off the handle and avoiding responsibility. Liam's journey from drifting to settling down is one hell of a read.

Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray
Lair of Dreams - Libba Bray
Lair of Dreams picks up a short time after The Diviners end. Evie is know known as the Sweetheart Seer and has her own radio show. Sam and Jericho are doing everything they can to keep the museum open while dealing with their own Diviner issues. Henry finds out there is at least one other Dream walker out there. Theta worries her nightmares from the past may burn her future.
 
Lair of Dreams was somehow even better then The Diviners. One or two new characters are introduced and fit right in with the already existing ones. I really didn't care for Evie's character for most of this book. Towards the end, you see a glimpse of the old Evie and you get why she acts the way she does for most of the beginning. I still didn't care much for her thoughtlessness, but at least there is a explanation. I'm glad she wasn't the main focus in this title. There wasn't really a main character in Lair of Dreams and I absolutely loved that. Each character has a equal amount of time. This allows each character the time they really needed to grow. The writing and the story are absolutely superb. I liked the ghost story a lot more then Naughty John. I really, really hope it doesn't take another three years for the next Diviners title.
