Melancholy

Charlotte McConaghy



Melancholy  A Sneak Peek on Reading List



Goodreads Summary:

Here in the west they know a lot about hope. They know how to ration it just as they do with food and water.

Josephine is at last free of the blood moon. But in a desperate rush to find help for a comatose Luke, she discovers the strange and dangerous world of the resistance, and it is unlike any world Josi has known.

In the west they believe in fury – they cultivate and encourage it. The unruly people of the resistance know that to survive means to fight. But can they fight the inevitable cure for sadness that rushes steadily closer?

In the action-packed sequel to Fury, everything Josi believes about herself will be challenged. Haunted by atrocities and betrayals, she must find the strength to trust again, and decide how far she is willing to go to fight the inevitable.

At times both brutal and sweet, Melancholy is the story of second chances and finding love in a ruined world.
 



Sneak Peek:

"Forgiveness is the easiest thing in the world. We're supposed to take care of each other, and we can't do that by lying, and I don't want to lie anymore, and I don't want to hold onto the lies."  Chapter 20, location 3852







Initial Thoughts

So that was a horrible run-on sentence, but it is so indicative of Josie's personality, always shifting.  This is an odd book, very much rated-R in its language and scenes, yet the core of the story keeps floating up in my mind.  I did already finish this one, and I am on the fence about book three... Should I read it?
