EXODUS (The Ravenhood Duet, book 2) by Kate Stewart
Release Date: August 6th, 2020
Can you live a lie?
It’s a ghost town, this place that haunts me, the one that made me.
It’s clear to me that I’ll never outgrow Triple Falls or outlive the time I spent here.
I can still feel them all, my boys of summer.
Even when I’d sensed the danger, I gave in.
I didn’t heed a single warning. I let my sickness, my love, both rule and ruin me. I played my part, eyes wide open, tempting fate until it delivered.
There was never going to be an escape.
All of us are to blame for what happened. All of us serving our own sentences. We were careless and reckless, thinking our youth made us indestructible, exempt from our sins, and it cost us all.
I’m done pretending I didn’t leave the largest part of me between these hills and valleys, between the sea of trees that hold my secrets.
It’s the reason I’m back. To make peace with my fate.
And if I can’t grieve enough to cure myself in my time here, I’ll remain sick. That will be my curse.
But it’s time to confess, to myself more so than any other, that I’d hindered my chances because of the way I was built, and because of the men who built me.
At this point, I just want to make peace with who I am, no matter what ending I get.
Because I can no longer live a lie.
5 ‘The Thorn Birds’ Stars!

Well, for the second time, it’s seems I don’t even know how to express myself because I have no words on how reading this book made me feel. It just made me feel SO MUCH. Kate has given us an EPIC conclusion for The Ravenhood duet and you guys don’t even know what you are in for because you are not expecting at all the intensity of what will happen. Exodus is breathtaking, thought-provoking, heartbreaking and basically a roller coaster of emotions. I told Kate herself, it just hurts so good and so bad at the same time.
So, Exodus, as I said, is the second and final installment in The Ravenhood duet and it follows the story of Cecilia Horner right after the ending of Flock. Without spoiling anything to anyone, let’s just say Cecilia’s life is about to become even crazier than we already saw in the first installment. The Ravenhood, love, sex, suspense, angst, suffering, feelings. You’ll find everything and so much more in this outstanding romantic suspense and its conclusion.
My heart was begging for love in all the wrong places, lurching in any direction for a home. But it’s not my heart he wants. It’s my spirit he’s intent on destroying.
I really don’t want to mess this for anyone so I won’t talk of what happens. Just as Flock, I recommend to just go blind after finishing the first book. I’ll just say I loved this storyline, these characters, the whole Ravenhood world Kate has created, the romance, the sex, the emotions running high. I just loved it ALL. I was sending tons of messages to Kate because as I said, I felt so much while reading this book. I literally cried my eyes out. I was crying so freaking much, all the freaking time. Kate made me fall head over heels in love with these characters and their inspiring stories. I love a smart and powerful romance that makes me think and Exodus surely did that.
“Your heart is not your weakness, Cecelia. It’s mine.”
Obviously, what makes the story so amazing are the characters themselves. Cecilia’s growth was an absolute delight to read, she is a kick-ass heroine and I loved her. I won’t say much about her romantic partners but let’s just say I loved how Kate developed it in Exodus. I had mixed feelings about the romance aspect in Flock but I totally get it now and man, it was angsty FIRE, burning chemistry and a roller coaster of emotions. Like I said, I cried so much because I adored these characters and their interconnected stories. Kate did an outstanding job, she is so freaking talented and Exodus was just that EPIC.
Love isn’t an inconvenience, it isn’t a mistake, and the danger makes it all worth it.
Therefore, I am rating Exodus with 5 STARS because I loved how this book made me feel (even though I suffered and cried so much sometimes!) and how Kate build these characters, their stories and their feelings. This is definitely one of my top favorite books of 2020 and I recommend to any romantic suspense fans out there to read this brilliant duet. It’s unique, gripping, twisted and burning with chemistry and emotions. I loved Cecilia and how her story ended. Highly, highly recommend!
