Genre: YA/Fantasy/Paranormal

Published: December 25th. 2013


In order for honor to survive, who will make the ultimate sacrifice?

When confronted with Honor’s mortality, Ethan finds his rusty empathic powers are no match for the damage that's already been done to Honor’s heart - if she doesn’t find a donor, Honor will die.

In the third and final book of The Honor Trilogy, teenage empath Honor Stevens is fighting for her life, while her first love Ethan Sutherland and his half-brother Storm Sutherland are fighting to keep her alive. But even if a donor is found before Honor’s heart gives out, Ethan’s worst fear has come true – the government has been made aware of Honor’s healing abilities and now they have come to take her away.

Both Ethan and Storm have to make sacrifices to save Honor from both her fates, but who will make the ultimate sacrifice?

Our 3 Star Review

We left off with Honor in the hospital, she's kept a plane full of people alive but now it's a struggle for her life. Told from both Ethan and Honor's POV's throughout we see a whole new set of problems they have to face and it's a race between honor getting a new heart before hers gives out. Problems between choosing between 2 boys becomes inconsequential considering what's happening with her and new threats. We see how everything turns out and who Honor finally chooses.

I'm glad to see Honor finally see who she's meant to be with although the journey was at times painful to read about. This story left me wanting with it's ending, is it happy? Yes in some ways but in others if left me feeling sorry for some of the characters. I loved the concept of this story but felt it moved so fast that you couldn't fall in love with the characters. Overall I was left wanting with this series although I enjoyed parts of it as a whole I wish there was more to it.

About the Author:
J.P. Grider (1966 – ) born in Paterson, New Jersey as Julianne Pellegrino, was raised in Haledon, New Jersey, the oldest of six siblings. Her love of writing started early in her childhood, when she started writing poetry in-between homework assignments. As part of a school work program as a Journalism major in High School, J.P. Grider worked as a freelance reporter for a local newspaper, writing feature stories about exceptional high-school classmates. She studied Television Production and Film Writing at Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey, where she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Communications.
Two of J.P. Grider’s novels have won awards in the Textnovel Writing Contest, with her first published book – Unplugged (A Portrait of a Rock Star) – reaching Semi-finalist position. Though Unplugged is not her first novel written, it is the first to be published. Her second novel, Maybe This Life, published in 2012, was actually her first attempt at writing a novel. After completing the whole manuscript, Grider decided to scrap the whole thing and rewrite Maybe This Life from scratch. In Grider’s opinion, the difference between the two was night and day.
After writing in the Contemporary Romance genre, J.P. wanted to try her hand at the Young Adult Romance genre – the result, The Honor Trilogy.
Always looking to challenge herself, J.P. Grider is now working on writing in the New Adult Romance genre with a novel called Calling California which should release in the Fall of 2014.
