Can two broken souls possibly fill the gaps in each other and will it be enough? This is something to think about as we read Absolution. Firstly, I loved the cover the instant I saw it. Now, I did enjoy the story but I didn't always agree with the actions of the protagonists. Despite Sydney knowing that pursuing a relationship with Jace was a bad idea, she continued to convince herself that she needed to help him. It was clear that Jace was not in the right head space for a relationship and didn't treat Sydney the way she deserved. But like the title states, absolution is found. It isn't easy but the protagonists find a way to absolve themselves. The story is filled with gut wrenching moments and some sensitive issues but Ava Harrison does a wonderful job dealing with this topics. What we are left with at the end is a sense of hope that every cloud has a silver lining. After darkness, there is the sunlight that will light the way and remind us that we can live after sadness, if we only remember to forgive ourselves and others.
