Josh Walker is loyal, reckless, and every girl's dream. But he only has eyes for December Howard, the girl he has yearned for since his high school hockey days. Together they have survived grief, the military, distance, and time as they've fought for stolen weekends between his post at Ft. Rucker and her schooling at Vanderbilt. Now that Josh is a medevac pilot and Ember is headed toward graduation, they're moving on-and in-together. Ember never wanted the Army life, but loving Josh means accepting whatever the army dictates-even when that means saying goodbye as Josh heads to Afghanistan, a country that nearly killed him once before and that took her father. But filling their last days together with love, passion, and plans for their future doesn't temper Ember's fear, and if there's one thing she's learned from her father's death, it's that there are some obstacles even love can't conquer. Flight school is over. This is war.… (mere)

This was my first time reading a book in this series. Having not read the previous books, I found it a little hard to keep the couples straight in the beginning. However, I had no knowledge of Josh and December's prior history. That being said, I found this to be a unique, beautifully written and very emotional story of love, loss and guilt. Ms. Yarros does an amazing job taking us through a wide range of emotions with characters that are easy to connect with. This novel will leave a lasting impression long after you are finished reading. I was hooked from the start. A must read!

Oh. My. Goodness. Hallowed Ground is such a good book. It's going to be tough to review without spoilers--so much goes in inside those pages, and I wouldn't have wanted to know any of it before hand!--but I'll do my best.

Confession: I've only read this book (#4) and the third one ( Beyond What is Given in the series so far. I know, I know! Reading the first two is a definite priority. I've got Josh and Ember's first book (#1 in series, Full Measures ) in audio, so there's actually a good chance I'll be able to get it read before the semester's over. Since I know how they're going to end up (SO MANY FEELS), I'm even more motivated! ;)

So...can you read this book without having read the others? Yes, probably. Will you know all the backstory and really "get" the relationships of all the people and couples? Probably not--some recapping is here, but definitely not of every single detail you should know. Hallowed Ground is a powerful story all on its own, no question, but you'll get more out of it if you've read the other books first.

Hallowed Ground gripped me right from the very first page. Ms. Yarros definitely writes from the heart, and it's clear that she has experience with what she's talking about--with the alternating first person narration of the story, you really feel as if you are experiencing everything right along with the characters. They made me laugh. They made me cry. They made me laugh and cry at the same time. Thank heaven for waterproof mascara, because there was actual sobbing today on my lunch break as I neared the end of the book.

Sobbing. At my desk.

So much is going on in this story--Ember's finishing school, getting ready for graduate studies, and contemplating a summer dig in Turkey (that sounds freaking awesome, BTW. So jealous!) She and Josh have just moved in together, and Paisley and Jagger are in the other half of their duplex. Josh is now a medivac pilot, and just as they start to think that they've finally gotten some stability in their lives, bam! Josh finds out he's (along with Jagger, and Will will be following soon) heading to Afghanistan.

And so it begins...

Admittedly, much of Ember and Josh's relationship conflict could have been resolved with better communication. However, Ms. Yarros does an excellent job of making me believe that there were times when one or both of them literally couldn't have that conversation for one reason or another...and that reason wasn't always because they were in different parts of the globe. They kept going, though, as you do--as you must--and in the end every tear was absolutely worth it.

And bonus: the title comes from The Gettysburg Address. And the text of that document ends up helping Josh get his head out of his butt toward the end. Seriously, how awesome is that? Just when I thought the book couldn't get more fantastic....

Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A
