I’m not sure still what words I can come up with to properly describe my adoration of this novel and the rest of the BECKONED series from Aviva Vaughn. I’d have to say that I am a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to my emotions, something I tend to find myself often doing when I finish one of her books. I fell in love with book one, Beckoned: Part 1 From London With Love and the characters that would soon find a way into a permanent part of my heart. I have traveled to some amazing places, eaten and very well tasted with the way Vaughn writes, and I have been consumed with the peace that I seem to find whilst reading. I would highly recommend that you read all the books, in order, before you dive into this one, although if there is any that can be read as a stand alone in the series this book is the one.
Soren truly comes full circle in Adrift in New Zealand. I felt as if I could predict where this book would go but boy was I surprised. There were several moments when I was completely sideswiped with the turn of events, making everything seem that much more realistic. I absolutely loved how everything tied up and found its way into the perfect ending. While I am saddened that this is the last of the BECKONED series I look forward to seeing what else Aviva Vaughn will spin out next. I am sure that whatever it will be will soon consume me as well! Thanks for the lovely adventures Ms. Vaughn.
