Review: Freefall by Cat Porter (The Wind & the Roar #1)
Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Give Me Books Promotions.
Freefall is a novella that serves as a prologue of sorts to Cat Porter's new series titled The Wind & the Roar. This is a spin-off of Fury, which in turn, is a spin-off of Porter's highly popular and much loved Lock & Key series. This time around, we have Beck Lanier, a rock star soaring towards superstardom and guitarist, sometime pianist, and songwriter for his band, Freefall. His trip to Meager to see his mom was supposed a quick one, but when his path crosses with that of Violet, the daughter of his mom's best friend, all it takes is one open, heartfelt, and honest conversation to spark something between them.
This novella was a quick read, taking about half an hour from start to finish. But while the pages may be few, it does pack an emotional punch, enough that it piqued my curiosity and stirred my eagerness for more about Beck and Violet. Basically, the anticipation is real, and I'm already counting the days before I can get my greedy hands on the second book, which I'm guessing will be a full-length novel. There was clearly a connection between Beck and Violet, but it was also obvious that these two were headed in different directions. With a few weeks between now and the release of Whirlwind, book two in the series, I may do a re-read of Fury... Go read Freefall to see why! 4.5 stars!
