Review: To Whatever End by Lyndsey Frydman

Published January 4, 2021 by Entangled Publishing

What if with every person you met, after just one touch, you have a vision of the last time you’ll see each other? Ever. Normally, these visions are innocent—two friends just drifting apart, a random stranger that brushed past you then never crossed your path again.

But not today.

When I accidentally touch him, within only moments of our first meeting, I’m bombarded by visions of his death.

And from what I can see, I’m the reason he dies.

Now I just need to figure out why, and how to stop this from happening. Because not only am I to blame, but his very last words to me are…I love you.

My Review

Once I started reading this book, I could not put it down. This was finished in one sitting and by the end, I still had some questions hence the 4 stars instead of 5.

Quinn is cursed. Her mother was cursed as well as her grandmother. There were different degrees of the curse which led each young lady in the family to see different things. Quinn gets a vision of the last time she will ever see someone just by a touch. She can normally handle the visions without an issue until she meets Griffin, his vision tips her off balance because she sees him dying and confessing his love for her!

I liked Quinn enough but felt that her immaturity showed several times throughout the book. The back and forth with Griffin was a little exhausting and if it weren’t for a great mystery, I definitely was not reading for the romance. Don’t get me wrong, I like Griffin but their relationship ran hot and cold which left me frustrated. And their arguments were kind of just brushed under the carpet and not really discussed through.

As for the whole mystery of the book, there was a lot of foreshadowing so it was pretty easy to kind of see what was coming. I had to keep reading though to see if I was right. By the end, I wasn’t really too shocked.

I felt that the author could have elaborated more upon the curse. Where did the curse come from? What were the differences in each family member’s curse? What visions did her grandmother see? These questions were never answered and I felt like we were missing one big piece of the puzzle.

Even though all of my burning questions were not answered, I still very much enjoyed the story! Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the review copy in exchange of an honest review.

Looking forward to this book? Does it sound like one your interested in?
