Loved this! It was nice to see the beginning of the story from Max's point of view. I also enjoyed getting a little back story for him.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Sara Ross has captivated her readers once again, this time however we are reading Max's story. In Atone we learn so much about Max, how everything he loves has been taken from him, and how he was able to overcome the emotions of losing so much and to find love again in the last place he expected it. The emotions you feel for Max is surreal, you feel his anger, his sadness, and then his loyalty to the one he loves and has been destined to be with since the beginning of time. I don't want to say much as this is just a short story and I don't want to give away any spoilers, however, if you have read Awaken and Avenge, then you don't want to miss Atone!!Was this review helpful?

Atone was simply amazing! Having read Awaken: The Patronus first, I loved reading Max's backstory in Atone. It really gives you a better understanding of Max and why he is the way he is. Because I've read both books, I highly recommend reading Awaken first and then Atone because the suprise in Awaken won't seem quite as suprising if you read it in Atone first. But that's just my opinion. Onced I picked up Atone, I couldn't put it down and I actually stayed up til 3am to finish it because I had to know what Max was really feeling knowing that his soulmate was lying in the hospital wing, healing from her injuries. When Atone begins, Max is so full of anger and resentment and to see him do a complete 180 and love this girl with every fiber of his being, willing to protect her at all costs, is so beautiful. I personally don't think that I would have felt the same had I read Atone first and then Awaken. It's always refreshing to go back in time and see something from another perspective once you've read the story. It's like seeing the story through another's eyes. Atone was simply amazing! Great job Sarah!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Seriously! I didn't think it was possible to fall in love with Max anymore but Sarah Ross made me do just that with Atone. I truly enjoy reading the poverty of a main character and knowing what Max was feeling before and after he died had me connecting to him even more. if you've read Awaken you know how Max died and why Max and Lucy have a strong connection but in Atone we find out just how strongly Max does feel for Lucy and in great detail. We find out more about his past and how he dealt with the death of his wife and loss of his child. novellas help answer lingering questions you have when reading a book and Atone answered mine. Max is so on my dreamy book boys list.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Sarah Ross does it again!!! As a huge fan of her books I jumped at the chance to read this new release. First off I love Max so anything having to do with him I was all for it. Atone is a short read but in this short read there is nothing that disappoints. I loved being able to read the story from Max's point of view and to get a glimpse of his past before he met Lucy.
I love Sarah's writing style because it flows so easily and her stories are always unique. I don't think anyone can say her stories are just like anothers. They are all different and have their own twists to them. I like this about Sarah because it makes her books stand out amongst others. She pulls you into her stories as if you were actually there and feeling what her characters are feeling. I would definitely recommend this book to my family and friends.

So I don't like to give out spoilers for books so I will try not to. This was an amazing read GOOD JOB Sarah. Atone was written from Max's point of view. I absolutely loved it! The story is well written, and I liked finding out Max's history of where he came from & his past. It leads up to when Max finally meets Lucy. I know I will reread this book multiple times because it is a quick read, and I can't get enough of it. Atone is a novella which is a short story so don't expect a long novel. I was a little sad when I finished it just because I love Max, and Lucy & when you finish a good book like this it just leaves you wanting more. Thank you for the amazing story Sarah, and I can't wait until the next one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
