This is the third book I’m reading by E.B. Roshan and it was a treat as always. For Better and Worse is the fourth book in the Sevia series but it could potentially be read as a standalone. I’ve read the first book in the series and this book is the continuation.
Pregnant and nearing her due date, Anna is fearing now more than ever what it will mean to raise a child as war rages on around them. Boris is reluctant to leave Dor, more focused on saving his business — even if it means putting his family in danger.
I enjoyed this book even more than Wrong Place, Right Time. The recurring themes of love and forgiveness filled my heart (especially where the book is written from a Christian perspective). The characters and relationships are realistic and relatable. Mixed in with the dystopian setting, it’s an all-around fantastic read.
A huge thanks to the author for sending me a free digital copy of the book to read and review!

It’s always a pleasure reading anything by E.B. Roshan. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the Sevia series at some point!
