If you are in need of reading a quick-paced new trilogy this year so far, then definitely pick up the End of Forever trilogy by Paullina Simons. I found out recently that the trilogy itself has been released with only a few months between them, but took Paullina Simons five years to actually write and publish, the trilogy itself does reflect this, for one thing it was nice to be able to read a full saga without a minimum of a one year wait in-between each book! It does read more like one long book than three individual books, which is testament to the authors writing. Each book finished at perfect points within the story and the overall enjoyment of the books was added to.
Julian and Josephine’s love story is epic and Inexpressible Island’s ending is testament to this, I was eagerly awaiting how this trilogy would end and it didn’t disappoint. Julian travels back one last time to save Josephine and this time it is during the London Blitz. Paullina has written such a vivid picture of this period of time it ensnares the imagination.
This is the final book in the End of Forever Saga, Inexpressible Island. The end to an epic love story, this period of history was my favourite that Julian travelled to, and if you are romance novel fan this epic tale is not to be missed. I eagerly awaited for this book as it completes the saga of much loved characters, about the unbreakable bonds of loyalty and the lengths to which people will go for someone they loved. Julian’s love for Josephine is the crux of the story, the commitment and sacrifice he has to persevere for their love. This book is different from the rest, he must for the final time try to keep Josephine alive, however events and people occur, it also helps him think back to his present like and all of a sudden, for the reader dots begin to connect and the story unfolds. As a reader we are placed right into the middle of the horrors of the Blitz and wartime London, Paullina Simons vivid imagination combined with masterful story telling and clearly some meticulously done research add to the depth of the novel and how we feel for the characters and their love story as a whole.
Overall, this saga is thoroughly enjoyable, a well-written trilogy, with well-rounded character who you can’t help but support and want them to have their happy ending. Inexpressible Island will make you cry with the sweet emotions of the story, and not want it to end. The pacing of the trilogy was just right, with so many twists and turns throughout it kept me entertained until the final page.
