From the very first chapter of 'Fighting Solitude' I was once again drawn into the lives of Quarry, Till, Eliza, Flint, Ash & Liv. Starting when Quarry was younger, seeing when he & Liv first meet, giving us the journey they made as children, then teenagers, becoming a group of 3 friends, before we come to the climatic scene at the end of 'Fighting Shadows'. Oh if you haven't read either of the first books in Aly's "On the Ropes" series, then stop right now & go back & devour those books. For those of you who have read them, you know exactly what climatic scene I'm talking about. Not even 30% into this book & I had tears, more than in books 1 & 2... but I didn't let the tears stop me from finishing Quarry's story. I devoured it, I FREAKING LOVED IT! I'm not going to spoil anything about this book. You need to read & devour this book for yourself.
