a whole range of different vantage points is explored It’s refreshing because the honourable ethical rebels is something I’ve read many many times granted usually well done and a change was very much welcomeC H A R A C T E R SI usually go through this section character by character but let me just first and foremost establish that my absolute favourite part of this book had to be hands down the Keefe drama I can’t go into it because spoilers but this sunshine kid who we learnt last book becomes a shadow at home had to deal with so many life altering revelations and he and others surrounding him acted accordingly The execution was phenomenal Not only did it give a character I care for so deeply millions of layers of added depth but it also meant that the plot didn’t revolve around Sophie I think THAT was the game changer that boosted Everblaze from a 4 star read to a 5 star read If you think about it my List Of Things Sophie Gets That No One Else Does Because She’s Special was significantly shorter this time around It gave other characters a chance to shineSophie Foster is a smart compassionate girl and I really like her She is largely in the spotlight of every installment—everything is about her—and this definitely grew old fast While this was mostly the case in Everblaze as well other characters got a chance and I think this served to not only help them grow as characters but it also benefited Sophie I really just want to see what she’d be like in a supporting role This may be the closest I’ll ever get to that so I’ll take what I can get Here is my significantly shorter List of Things Sophie Gets That No One Else Does Because She’s Special Sophie can breach ogre minds when no one else ever could Sophie can implant memories Sophie still has 37748291028372 powers for most of the book anyway Sophie has the power to almost wage a war because everyone cares that much about what a thirteen year old thinks Sophie is literally called the star prodigy of all of Foxfire in front of other students by the principal Isn’t it Principal 101 that favouritism is frowned upon?Sophie handles a ridiculous amount of bullshit yet again I still have yet to understand why everything is her and only HER burden to bear when sometimes it legitimately isn’t At least I can say this irritating factor was dialled down a little the third time writing a Keeper review Despite Sophie’s lack of imperfections I still really do like her and enjoy her as a protagonist—especially in excruciatingly relatable moments like this “Sophie thought slowly fairly certain her brain was about to call it uits”Keefe my love my driving force Is it just me or are his jokes becoming even MORE forced? In any other case this would annoy me immensely but in this case I applaud thee Shannon Messenger As his life continues to crumble his jokes become inappropriate and less humourous I adore this type of character as they truly make my heart break the most because of how strong they are covering up their misery with jokes for the benefit of others or perhaps even because they don’t know how to handle grief as Keefe admitted in Exile The execution was largely successful seeing as I still adore Keefe overall but sometimes it was a little problematic—especially towards the beginning of the book See his transitions between incessant jokester and abused child were kind of jerky? I’m all for these deeper levels of his but I just wish his personas were handled carefully It’s difficult to explain It’s just that one moment he’d be on about sparkly poo and then the next he’d have his eyes trained on the ground refusing to look at anyone The switch from one to the other is a little too drastic for my taste Too unrealistic—forced even But hey I’m nitpicking and this issue vanished uicker than Biana around the two third mark of the book Keefe’s the kind of guy that hides his negative emotions behind a smile masking fear as a joke I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again I love that character concept And don’t get me wrong Keefe isn’t merely a concept but rather a remarkably well rounded character “I want you to know that I’m not going to sit at home any worrying about what might happen to you or Keefe or Biana or my dad I’m going to be right there with you guys helping any way I can”I’ve also said this before and I’ll say it again Fitz is FIERCE and very passionate He did kind of become of the ‘nice guy’ he was in Keeper rather than the fireball in Exile which was mildly disappointing but hey you can’t have it all He’s supportive and smart and all but lacks flare He’s definitely growing on me and technically speaking I really like him but what I want is to LOVE him like I do Keefe or at least to like him as much as I like Sophie For that to happen I need him to be of a fireball like last book but less of an asshole than he was in the last book mind you or possess some discerning characteristic other than ‘Wonderboy’ ‘Wonderboy’ is not a flaw Being too perfect is not a flaw Well okay it is but not the kind that makes me like someoneBiana who? Is Biana even a main character? I’m sure she’s supposed to be yet she gets a fifth of the time Fitz or Keefe get in the front and centre She’s meant to be Sophie’s age but then why do I feel like she’s so much younger than her—like she’s nine or something? She likes fashion she has a crush on Keefe she’s beautiful and powerful That’s it Girl needs some growth All I can say and this isn’t even strictly about Biana is that I’m glad we’re not going down the cliche route of her living in her older brother’s shadow I much prefer that the whole Vacker family are early bloomers as opposed to the ‘ugly duckling’ tropeI firmly believe everyone was WAY too hard on Dex Sure he fucked up but did he know he would? NO He’s a thirteen year old boy for god’s sake His reasons were totally understandable and he didn’t even know what he was getting into All he wanted was to make his family who adores him and is constantly unjustly slandered proud UGHAnd just what is Marella's problemo?Alden AKA ‘No reason to worry’ was kind of brief but it’s all made up for because of that hilarious code Sophie Fitz Keefe and Biana devised Grady is a king and nobody can convince me otherwise Edaline is slightly interesting than she was before but is still almost as bland as cardboard to be honestI KNEW I’d wind up liking Bronte From the moment this asshole showed his pointy ears I was certain he’d be among the most complex characters in the cast His hatred for Sophie always seemed superficial to me because it was so overdone I guessed he’d be a Severus Snape but done better and so far so goodR E L A T I O N S H I P SWhere oh where do I begin?Let’s start collectively the main friendship group “She turned to study the faces of her friends—the faces that had been with her through everything She’d fought so hard to protect them that she hadn’t really considered how much they protected her”But here’s the catch I’m talking about each character’s friendship with Sophie alone Amongst themselves Fitz Keefe Dex and Biana barely interact For instance it has long been established that Keefe and Fitz are best friends but where’s the evidence? Other than Keefe being over at Everglen a lot there isn’t any indication It’s all talk and no tell and I could really use of this friendship Same goes for Biana and Fitz like these two are meant to be siblings yet I have zero grasp of their dynamic other than perhaps them flaunting their abilities to one another and being eually annoying about it And Dex is such an outcast in this group; he hates Fitz and Biana and only tolerates Keefe I’m afraid he’ll be conveniently ‘left behind’ because he just doesn’t fit I suppose it’s difficult to accomplish all the relations when this is all following Sophie but I still think could be done Oh yeah and what is this crush Biana has on Keefe that gets approximately one sentence of mention per book? That sentence count better increaseRomance takes a backseat which did not uell my Sophie Keefe shipping but still I don’t know if there is anything I like than a book with subtle if any romance that still makes my heart ache for it It’s the perfect recipe for an angsty but sweet slow burn romanceKeefe and Sophie are proper confidants being the first to team up every time It's almost by default now The only thing I like about freaking Silveny is that she helped bring these two together Their relationship has obviously progressed with all the casual handholding and dare I say simply holding each other? JUST SAYING But most of all I adore how Sophie is the only one truly there for Keefe with all he goes through Honestly if these two don’t get together I will definitely throw a giant fit but as long as their friendship remains this pure if they don’t get together I’ll perhaps let it slide and binge fanfiction of them as opposed to hating this series for wronging me so “Breathe Foster” Keefe whispered giving her palm a uick reassuring sueezeShe clung to his hand like it could keep her alive and forced herself to take a shaky breath”I’ve decided I’m fine with Fitz and Sophie He cares a lot for her and is almost desperate to help her in any way he can My issue is that it reminds me a little bit too much of how Alden cares for her; as if she’s his responsibility It’s always so serious with them whilst let’s say with Keefe it’s always a lot fun and for leisure rather than duty She even seems to have fun around freaking Dex than Fitz Sophie just doesn’t seem super at ease with him because the tension is always so high Also the reason for their closeness is because Tiergen was basically playing matchmaker with Sophie and Fitz ‘for plot reasons’ because they needed to trust each other you know for the good of the worldI mean to their credit Fitz and Sophie made me aw than once Even if they are being kind of forced to trust one another for plot reasons the process of doing so is resulting in cute moments that are making me slightly conflicted I do like this ship It’s cute so far but it’s just that Keefe and Sophie are betterWhat else? Sophie Grady and Edaline made me cry once because they’re so sweet I repeat the same thing in every Keeper review because SERIOUSLY I CANNOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME GET OVER HOW SWEET THEY AREI’m ending on the same note I did last time Keefe’s family It’s just so INTERESTING He wilts in their presence he isn’t himself around them because they disapprove of who he is and well let us not forget the things he learns about them I am binging this series and my grades are suffering for it but I almost don’t care
