Product Description

Seventeen-year-old Violet has always been expected to sit back and let the boys do all the saving.

It’s the code her father, a member of the Reign of Terror motorcycle club, raised her to live by. 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 vulnerable younger brother, she needs to cut all ties with the club — including Chevy, the boy she’s known and loved her whole life.

But when a rival club comes after Violet, exposing old secrets and making new threats, she’s forced to question what she thought she knew about her father, the Reign of Terror, and what she thinks she wants. Which means re-evaluating everything: love, family, friends . . . and forgiveness.

Caught in the crosshairs between loyalty and freedom, Violet must decide whether old friends can be trusted — and if she’s strong enough to be the one person to save them all.

An intoxicating and unforgettable story that kept me glued to the page. — Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling author, on Walk the Edge

I loved loved loved this book and the plot. I loved the surprises and the out of know where emotions.
The reason I didn't give it a 5 was because she repeated some things from the beginning in the end and it was super annoying to me. Like ok I get it! But for others this would be good if you forgot or something.
I totally recommend all her books to any one any age over 14.

Did not interest this book at all.
Not at all my sort.
Motor motobikes are not my interest at all. I'll try a different topic next time.

Violet's dad was a member of the Reign of Terror motorcycle club and he paid with his life for it. In Violet's world women are often treated as loyal subjects, the men protect them, they take the decisions and the women have to obey. When she and Chevy are being abducted on her eighteenth birthday Violet's nightmares come true. She can get out, but won't be left alone. She's being put under a lot of pressure and instead of giving in she decides to stand up for herself. While being held by the enemy Violet and Chevy learn a lot about their past. Is what they've been told actually the truth?

Violet is the love of Chevy's life, but they are no longer a couple. Violet doesn't want him to be like the other Reign of Terror members and has given Chevy a choice. So far he hasn't made a decision, which means he can't call her his girlfriend anymore. Chevy knows Violet is hiding something and he wants nothing more than to keep her safe, but will he be capable of doing so? And when Violet is ready to tell someone her secrets who will she turn to? A person can be a prisoner in many different ways and it's up to Violet, with or without Chevy's help, to find a solution and regain freedom.

Long Way Home is an impressive story about motorcycle gangs, betrayal, secrets, family ties, friendship and true love. Violet is strong, independent and honest. She says what she thinks, she can stand up for herself and she has a fiery personality. She's fabulous and I loved her courage and dedication. She fights for the people she loves and she isn't afraid to take risks to protect them. Chevy is kindhearted and chivalrous. He wants Violet to be happy and he wants nothing more than to be by her side every single day. He's caring and sweet, but he also has a blind spot.

I am a big fan of Katie McGarry's Pushing the Limits series, and I've equally enjoyed the Thunder Road series. It stands alone, separate from Pushing the Limits, but in this book there is a long-awaited crossover which will delight fans of the original series.

In my review of the second Thunder Road book, I commented that I wasn't entirely happy that the objectification of women by the motorcycle club wasn't really addressed. It was just presented as something you had to accept if you wanted to be with a member of the club. Violet refuses to accept it, and it does get a bit more attention in this book.

I was expecting my investment in these characters to have dwindled a bit, but it hasn't. The action and drama start early on, placing a massive burden on both Chevy and Violet, and the tension comes from whether they'll share that with each other, and find a way to mend their relationship, or deal with it alone. I found myself genuinely emotionally invested in their story, and while a HEA might seem inevitable, nothing was certain until the end.

It would have been nice to have seen more of the female characters from the previous books, but that's a very minor gripe.

There is enough here that this book works as a standalone if you haven't read the previous books in the series, but for maximum impact, I would suggesting reading both series in publication order.

I don’t know how I feel about this book. Katie McGarry is one of my favourite contemporary writers, but Long Way Home didn’t hit that spot and left me disappointed. I was so excited when I was picked to be on the tour, but after reading I was hanging for more.

Long Way Home follows protagonists Violet and Chevy as they both struggle with their lives that they have come to know. The Reign of Terror are both their families, but when Violets’ dad dies, she wants nothing to do with them. However, when everything is on the line including their lives, she might just have to let the terror back in.

What I love about Katie McGarry’s books, is as the series goes on we find out more about the world of the books. Everything isn’t throw at us at once. We also find out about protagonists, before they even star in a book. It’s done so effortlessly. I felt that we already had a sense of Violet and Chevy before the book began, and then as Long Way Home went on, the reader is able to find out more.

Violet and Chevy aren’t my favourite Katie McGarry characters. I didn’t click with both of them. Therefore making it really hard to connect and be invested in their lives. Violet has very strong options about the Reign and why she doesn’t want to be with them anymore. And while it’s totally understandable, it did get slightly frustrating at times. She didn’t want to listen to anyone, even while they were trying to explain and save her life.

While Violet has her troubles with the Reign, so does Chevy. Throughout the whole book, the reader is able to see him struggle. He is stuck between trusting the family that he knows, being by his mother’s side, and losing the girl that he has loved most of this life.
