REVIEW: Long Way Home by Katie McGarry

Long Way Home is the third in McGarry's Thunder Road series following a group of teens growing up in Snowflake, Kentucky's Reign of Terror motorcycle club.

Seventeen year old Violet has always been expected to sit back and let the boys do all the saving. Yet when her dad is killed carrying out Terror business, Violet knows it’s up to her to do the saving. To protect herself, and her younger brother, she needs to cut all ties with the club—including Chevy, the boy she’s known and loved her whole life.

Severing ties isn't that easy when Violet and Chevy are kidnapped by a dangerous, rival club--The Riot.  Violet is asked to complete the ultimate betrayal which will cause her to question not only her beliefs but her loyalties to her family, friends and others she loves.

McGarry can do no wrong in my book.  I am always compelled by her stories and characters.  There is plenty of realistic, angsty romance, humor, and excitement. What I loved about this book in particular was the emphasis placed on Violet refusing to accept the role of women within the Terror and wanting to challenge this for the future.

Another highlight is the connection to the Pushing the Limits series.  Fans will go gaga for this bit of the story.

Well done!

Final rating: 5 out of 5 stars
