I just love this series. It is a hidden jewel in the world of NA paranormal romance. It is one of a handful of paranormal series in the New Adult/mature YA age group that has helped rekindle my love for paranormal romance. The series is original and action-packed, and while I loved Strength and Courage, Honesty, which is Cole's story, captured my heart. I liked Cole a little in Strength, a lot in Courage, but I totally fell in love with him in Honesty. Cole and Wallace (who is the MC in the other two books) are twins and though they may look alike, they are so different, each in his own way, and I do love them both. Cole is absolutely hilarious in this book. OMG, I didn't know Carrie Butler had this side of her because while the other two books had their humorous moments, Cole's character in Honesty is filled with humor, snark, he's very hot, and we get to know him intimately, which was awesome. He's a little arrogant and stuck on himself, but he wears it well and knows how to work it so that he doesn't come off as a jerk. His inner rantings and thoughts are a big part of what made the book for me. I really enjoyed getting to know Rachel in this story also. She and Cole are total opposites, but are so good for each other. The romance is sweet, has some steam, which we all love, but it's not overly explicit, and has its serious and fun moments as well. We also get to see bits and pieces of the things that happened in Courage from Cole's perspective, and get more insight into the suspense building with the ERA. I can't wait for the next book in the series so we can hopefully see where things are at with Cole and Rachel, as well as Wallace and Rena, not to mention see what is going to happen next with the story itself. Again, I can't recommend this book enough. Carrie Butler totally took me by surprise and demonstrated just what a talented writer she is. If you love paranormal romance, then the Mark of the Nexus Series is something I highly recommend....plus, I can't wait for you to meet Cole to.
An amazing Novella! Well, this series just keeps getting better and better. And though this was a novella, a long novella (not complaining at all), Honesty was a perfect addition to this wonderful series! It was also such a fun read! Being inside Cole’s head was an experience; an experienced I just loved! This book also made me realize how happy I am I picked up this series (which I can thank a wonderful book bloggy friend for raving about this book which lead me to starting it). Honesty is pack with tons of humor, action, a little romance, awesomeness, and character growth. I love Cole! I really loved his character in the first two books, but now, now I can say I really, really love his character! He is such a complex guy and he definitely has many layers to him. What I loved about Honesty is that I really got to see Cole. And that allowed me to understand him in ways I couldn't before. Yes, Cole is a crude character and he might not always make the brightest decisions, but he’s heart is always in the right place. And that’s one reason he is one of my all-time favorite characters. He has such a big heart and he loves his family; and he would do anything for them. The book does take place during and a little after the second book, which was perfect in my opinion. I got to see scenes that took place in Courage from Cole’s POV, which, in my opinion, added more depth to the overall story. The pacing was done really well and how everything played out was well done too! The world that Carrie has created is just getting more complex and deeper. I also loved that we got to meet some different characters from Cole’s life and a maybe love interest that will be very good for Cole! What I loved most about this book was discovering just who Cole is. He really is a complex character with a big heart. And he really did grow a lot in Honesty. I am glad I got to see and experience his development. Honesty allowed me to understand him. All in all, I loved this novella! I'm so happy Carrie gave her readers a chance to really meet Cole.
