About Santino Hassell
This book actually gets super intense, which is awesome.
Holden I never really found endearing. He was a bit pushy and a lot cocky, but I ended up feeling bad for him and he definitely redeems himself in my eyes.
Of course he couldn't have done that with out the stoic mountain of a man, Sixtus Rossi aka Six.
Everything that The Community represents is all a lie, and Holden doesn't even realize it until it's pushed into his face. He knows his father is ambitious, but not to the extent of it. Everything stems towards more cynical goings on at "The Farm". The Farm is where Six has been kept for nearly a decade. After something happens when he's young and is sent there for punishment, or "realignment", and must play nice to Holden's father. What Holden thinks he's there for is a complete lie and his father will do anything to cover up what's really going on. Including making his son a scapegoat.
This is where my sympathy comes in for Holden. He generally does care and wants a safe place for psy-kids to go. When Elijah and Chase go missing, he knows something is fishy. He believed in what The Community *should* be about, that it's hard for him to believe the conspiracy theories his friends are throwing at him. To learn that it's all a front for darker things is a real punch to the gut. Not to mention his mother and her secrets. By the end of the book it's a whole new ball game.
This is definitely my favorite story so far. The character development, the intriguing, mysterious story line, the emotions (especially considering one is pretty much incapable of them) it's all there unfolding for what I hope is a glorious follow up.
Let's talk about the end. Some might say it's a cliffy. I say it's an intense continuation ;)
I'm super excited for Chase, he's my favorite out of all the characters.
