Lizzy Ford, Autumn Storm - Review

Lizzy Ford, Autumn Storm - Review

A girl with no memory, hidden in plain sight. A boy with no hope, freefalling into Darkness.

Autumn doesn’t know why she remembers a boarding school she’s never visited, or why her reflection isn’t always … hers. There’s another girl in the mirror, a dark-haired ghost that emerges one night to guide her to a cliff near the school. Only Autumn can’t remember what happened there and why it’s so important. Beck’s gentle touch soothes her distress while Decker’s every look sets her body on fire. Caught between the twins, she struggles to understand her instincts and magick while working through the pain caused by a mysterious car accident that left her disabled, barely able to walk.

Unable to recover from Summer’s death, Decker slowly surrenders to the Dark. He can’t live with the pain, and those around him keep Autumn’s secret too well. The guilt he feels when he falls for her – and betrays Summer’s memory – drives him farther from the Light, until he loses control and begins taking the souls of Light witchlings. As the protector of Light, Beck must choose between confronting his twin and watching more witchlings suffer. Decker realizes Beck has come between more than him and the witchlings. With neither of them willing to let Autumn go, they turn on each other.

Only one of them knows the truth. Only one of them will walk away, unless Autumn can find a way to save them both.

My kindle now feels complete this is on it, I have seriously spent the past two days being antisocial so I can get up to date on this magnificent trilogy, I am addicted, If there was a club I would defiantly be a member maybe we can have badges and mugs? Everyone loves a good badge.

The first person we meet in this book is Autumn, a little coincidental right? But as people will work out quickly Autumn is in fact summer but with no memory and a disguise crafted by Beck and Decker's Mom she she can have a fresh start and a chance at writing her wrongs without any outside interference.

Autumn believes she lost her memory in a horrific car accident that has left her with a metal knee and scars over most of her body. No one at the school knows the truth about who she is, instead it is up to Autumn to make the past right by choosing the right path and passing a magical test. 

Autumn begins to have flash backs of Summers memories but has no idea what they mean, she finds a strong connection to Beck and an attraction to Decker but which boy will Autumn choose to trust and let into her life? Even as the reader you find yourself torn between teams and not knowing who would be better for her.

Autumn has grown so much since the first book, she is now fiercely independent and not afraid to fight and face her own battles. She has already been through so much emotional and physical pain that not much phases her anymore.

I also enjoyed seeing how much Beck has matured and grown into his role of Master of the Light, he is much more involved in this book then the first and I glad I have had the opportunity to get to know his character better.

Decker you can tell is in bad shape, he has lost all sense of self wort since 'Summers' death and is dealing with his new role as Master of the Night and Fire in a bad way, but underneath it all you can clearly see that he wants to be a better person he has lost all hope and maybe Autumn will be the person to give him that hope. I sometimes found it a struggle to comprehend Decker's actions within the book especially when it came to females, it was sometimes a little off putting and turned him away from being the Night in shining (well black) armor. 

Overall another excellent read from the amazing Lizzy Ford, Now my only problem is I have no idea when the next book in the series is out but fingers crossed it is soon as I need my next fix now, this series is addicting!

5/5 again for this series!
