BEHIND HIS EYES TRUTH is the second of CONSEQUENCES SERIES three reading companions, by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig. It is recommended to be read after completing all of the CONSEQUENCES SERIES: Consequences, Truth, and Convicted. It is not a standalone book and should not be read as such.
This reading companion explores the thoughts and motivations of Anthony Rawlings and his struggle to accept the truth behind the consequences. It is not intended as a total rewrite of TRUTH, but meant to enhance the reader’s understanding. BEHIND HIS EYES TRUTH contains significant scenes from the novel TRUTH, as experienced from Anthony’s point of view. It also contains never before read, behind the scenes information, a glossary of the characters, and a timeline which grows from Consequences to include the array of new characters and revelations found in the pages of Truth.
BEHIND HIS EYES TRUTH is the continued journey inside the mind of the man who supplied and survived the consequences. This companion allows readers the opportunity to witness first hand as Anthony’s world changes forever. His rules and control begin to slip away, threatened by the most unlikely foes—something completely unfamiliar.
Can something as pure as love and forgiveness wreak havoc on his well-planned existence?
BEHIND HIS EYES TRUTH, because there is more to learn about a man who:
Once upon a time, signed a napkin that he knew was a contract. As an esteemed businessman, he forgot one very important rule—he forgot to read the fine print. It wasn’t an acquisition to own another person as he’d previously assumed. It was an agreement to acquire a soul.
—Aleatha Romig, CONVICTED
Continue the long and painful acquisition, as the TRUTH becomes evident, from Behind His Eyes!
Well where do I begin on this one?? Tony that is really the only place to start and end. Obviously, this is when you see the Truth of what Tony saw, you get to know what he was thinking and feeling. After I read the trilogy I felt at peace, I was as content as much as one person could be. We went through the journey, we loved, hated, loved again, felt bi-polar but when we finished at 100% of Convicted there was a resolution. It might not have been what we all wanted, but it was closure.
So when I read Behind His Eyes Consequences I felt like someone punched hole through my resolution and danced on it. I felt like the man who I defended from the VERY beginning of this series just proved to me he was an asshole who would have been hit by a semi. I was so angry. ANGRY! Gone was any happy and I was void. I loved Tony even during Consequences. I loved him and told others they would soon be converted and to trust him, and stop fighting the inevitable. Then I read BHE and again I thought… “Well I’m an idiot.” I went through a few days of not speaking to Aleatha. I think she thought I hated her, and in Truth…I kinda did. Not because she didn’t do a stellar job writing but because she decapitated my unicorn and she made my rainbow go black. Thanks by the way.
So I was really afraid to read this book, but being the masochist I am I HAD to know. So I messaged Aleatha, told her to strap in because I was going to PM the shit out of her if she wrecked me again. But guess what… we made friends again!!!! She made me whole again… my rainbow has color and my unicorn is dancing again. I loved this book… HARD! I felt like we saw so much of the progression that I thought was there from the beginning. We learned new story that we hadn’t saw before and it allowed us into the Tony and Claire’s relationship on a deeper level. It’s okay that I love him because I was able to find that what my heart knew all along was true.
Their tongues united and her radiating warmth pulled him closer. Breaking their seal for only a second, Tony replied, “No, I’m sorry.”
This book gave me the missing piece to the puzzle that is Tony. It allows you to feel the entire process. You see him go from monster to man and learn the emotions behind his actions. I fell hard and if you read the trilogy I think reading these companion novels will help you see things that you were left curious and unsure about. You may not always like it, but again sometimes having the Truth-will set you free!
