From International Bestselling author Amity Cross, comes Zenith, the third and final novel of The Thornfield Affair, a modern reimagining of Charlotte Brontë’s classic Jane Eyre.
ReviewZenith is the stunning conclusion to The Thornfield Affair series, and it is just as amazing as the previous two books. The whole series has been a whirlwind of suspense and romance, secrets and lies, and so much more, so its not a big surprise that this last book was full of more of the same. I love the way Amity Cross has blended all of the mysterious aspects of this story with the rest of the elements, it's made for a compelling read.
Taking up where book two ended, we find our heroine, Jane, having left Thornfield turning to an interesting choice, John Rivers for help. John helps her find a job because she refuses to use inheritance money and would rather work for her earnings. Jane doesn't tell John who she really is; nor does she tell her new friend Adele.
In the way of all things in this series, Jane is spooked and more twists unfold making us delve deeper into all of the twists and truths that are revealed. This book definitely keeps you on your toes wondering at the knowledge we've already garnered, and what is still unfolding as the story progresses.
The story is written superbly well in that each of the characters, even minor play a role in the story at large and there's something abou them that pulls you in deeper and makes your curiousity grow. I love the connection between Jane and Edward, theirs is a passion that is undeniable, but there is also a lot of problems between them. Zenith gives us the strong Jane Eyre rising on her own from her past as Jane Doe, it gives us the final pieces of the puzzle to put it all together and finally realize the full story.
I've loved watching as Jane grew and changed from book to book, how she changed and realized her own strength and worth; she was more than an orphan, more than what she'd been led to believe as a young girl. As she grew further attached to Edward, her realizations of her wishes and desires also changed and grew.
Zenith was the perfect ending to this series, it had the last of the answers, it had suspense, heartache and so much more. Edward and Jane have never had an easy path, but to see it all unfolded, to watch as they both overcome so much makes for a truly remarkable story.
