By Marisa De Los Santos.
This is the first book by Marisa De Los Santos. Little did I know that it is the prequel to Belong to Me. The connection is palpable, though from the way the second book started I wouldn’t have expected both Teo and Cornelia to each have such colourful love lives before getting together. Belong to Me made me expect that they have been soulmates since forever. But I guess that’s the reflection of reality. Not everything is storybook perfect. So that’s good. Gives us commoners some comfort.
Clare is so brave, and so lucky to have found such a bond with Cornelia and Teo. That’s the amazingness of humankind. We can love, beyond ties. We can create ties. We don’t have to depend on predestined links to find love.
