2.5

I really the first two in this series but no. The questioning of morality and complete character decline is not something I can get behind. And it’s just so out of character for Pip, where that leap doesn’t make logical sense. I really feel like this book just did not need to go there. I was just upset and disappointed for a majority of this book, so no.
Spoiler how am I supposed to believe that Pip would just give up on her morals completely and do something that she was scarred by for the entire beginning of the book? She went from being that affected/disturbed by someone dying in front of her, to killing someone so violently/brutally? I don’t think so. I know that Jason was a bad man, but come on. And Ravi really just went along with his girlfriend MURDERING someone? I get that he had just done something horrible and she had no hope in justice, but still, she violently killed him.
