#Review: Intrepid – Samantha Jacobey
Determined to make the best of the situation she now finds herself in, Tori promises herself that she’ll do everything possible to come out on top. Faced with several tough decisions, she soon realizes that life has never been what she’s wanted it to be. Though she’s made progress in some aspects of her life, she’s not quite content with the way things have gone. Deep inside, there’s something missing, though she isn’t quite sure as to what it is.
Though she’s now a part of her brother’s band, Tori knows that appearances are always deceiving. The band is just a front, a way for her deal with the backlash of what has yet to come. With every day that passes, she clamors for something better. Something that will pull her out of the fog that threatens to consume her by the second. Her inner demons are slowly clawing to the surface, determined in showing her exactly what she’s missing.
As if that’s not enough, those she’d left behind and in the past are slowly insinuating themselves into her life again. Tori’s done her best to forget Brett and Enrique, and what they represent. She’s tried everything to live a normal life, though now she knows that will never be possible. Sooner or later, she knows she’ll need to confront everything she’s done. Part of her knows it’s going to be difficult. The question is, how much more will she be able to endure before she breaks completely?
Another startling addition to the New Life series, Intrepid dives into the heart of the ensuing controversy that surrounds Tori and those she’s come across. She’s lived a very tough life and no longer knows who she can or can’t trust. Heck, she’s not even sure if she can trust herself. Samantha did a great job in showing us more of Tori’s vulnerabilities, as well as how much she can take. The girl is determined in making a better life for herself no matter what those she comes across dishes out to her.
It so sucks that a good many try to take advantage of her, though. I get that they want to make sure she does exactly as she’s supposed to. The one thing that also bothers me is Tori’s depravity in doing what needs to be done. She’s suffered so much already. Does she really need to sink into the darkness like she does just to make sure she gets her point across? Overall, Intrepid does tie up quite a few loose ends, but it does open up a whole new can of worms. Still, Tori is a headstrong character and she eventually gets things done. I do hope that she gets her happy ending soon enough.
