Behind His Eyes - Truth by Aleatha Romig
BEHIND HIS EYES—TRUTH is the second of the CONSEQUENCES SERIES three reading companions, by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig. It is recommended to be read after completing all three books of the CONSEQUENCES SERIES: Consequences, Truth, and Convicted. It is not a standalone book and should not be read as such.
This reading companion explores the thoughts and motivations of Anthony Rawlings and his struggle to accept the truth behind the consequences. It is not intended as a total rewrite of TRUTH, but meant to enhance the reader’s understanding. BEHIND HIS EYES—TRUTH contains significant scenes from the novel TRUTH, as experienced from Anthony’s point of view. It also contains never before published, behind-the-scenes information, a glossary of the characters, and a timeline that grows from Consequences to include the array of new characters and revelations found in the pages of Truth.
BEHIND HIS EYES—TRUTH is the continued journey inside the mind of the man who survived the consequences. This companion allows readers the opportunity to witness first hand as Anthony’s world changes forever. His rules and control begin to slip away, threatened by the most unlikely foes—an experience completely unfamiliar to him.
Can something as pure as love and forgiveness wreak havoc on his well-planned existence?
BEHIND HIS EYES—TRUTH, because there is more to learn about a man who:
Once upon a time, signed a napkin that he knew was a contract. As an esteemed businessman, he forgot one very important rule—he forgot to read the fine print. It wasn’t an acquisition to own another person as he’d previously assumed. It was an agreement to acquire a soul.
—Aleatha Romig, CONVICTED
Continue the long and painful acquisition, as the TRUTH becomes evident, from Behind His Eyes!
Almost exactly a year ago I first discovered the CONSEQUENCES series and though the first book was good, it was the nail biting, surprising, passion filled TRUTH that really shone and sent me crazy about the series. Needless to say I was very excited to hear that the author was writing a companion/retelling trilogy called BEHIND HIS EYES and of them all, BHE - TRUTH was the one I was most looking forwards too. Luckily it lived up to my high expectations.
Aleatha writes alternate pov novels very well, mainly because this isn't actually a full alternate pov novel and as the synopsis states cannot be read if you haven't first read TRUTH; you wont have a clue what is going on. Rather than being a straight repeat of TRUTH from Tony's pov this book sticks to the most important scenes from TRUTH as well as a few brand new scenes. As long as you have read the initial trilogy at some point in the past, BHE - TRUTH will make perfect sense as Aleatha includes just enough to remind you of the things that aren't fully covered in this.
There were several scenes in TRUTH were I was desperate to know what Tony was thinking and every single one of was included in this book. I liked seeing some of the same event through a different set of eyes as it gives you a great new perspective, especially as in TRUTH all of Tony's motives were so hard to guess. It was almost a revelation to see his thoughts. You can see just how much he loves Claire and that everything he
BHE - TRUTH adds a great new layer of depth and complexity to the original story and all of the BHE books are highly worth reading if you have read the original series. I really cant wait for BEHIND HIS EYES - CONVICTED as I can just tell that it will be amazing.
If you haven't yet read CONSEQUENCES, TRUTH and CONVICTION then 1) what are you doing reading this review and 2) go and get them now.
