The Girl Who Lived Twice by David Lagercrantz is book 6 in the Millennium Series.
Let’s just start off with saying that this is my favorite book series! I was so excited, when I learned they were continuing the story past the 5th book. I started the series, last November and read through all 5 books in the span of a couple of months. When I got this book, I was so nervous because I thought that Lisbeth was going to be written out. She does so much crazy and dangerous things (because she’s such a bad ass) and I thought that her luck had to run out. Going into the book, with the mindset that my favorite character was probably going to die, I decided to take my sweet old time reading the book. It took me a month to get through, and I am so excited that there may be even more books in the future.
Lisbeth is not in the story line as much as I would have hoped, but it’s understandable. I say that it’s understandable, because the entire time, Lisbeth is really just watching her sister’s every move. Following closer to Lisbeth, would have made for a boring story since she couldn’t do much until the timing was right. I like how with these books, you’re taken along with Mikael’s investigation, so you can form your own thoughts and opinions before everything starts coming together.
I think that the realization, Lisbeth comes to, in regards to her sister, just shows how complicated of a character Lisbeth really is. She has been put through unimaginable pain, and yet – when it came down to it – she did not want to kill Camilla. Lisbeth continues to grow as a person along with the books, and I cannot wait for her story to continue. In my opinion, she is the definition of a bad ass. She has gotten her revenge on those that have wronged her in the past and she has saved her friends multiple times.
I am anxious to see how Zala, might play into this new story that was uncovered. Here’s to hoping there’s a 7th book! If you have read the past 5 books, I would say that you’ll be pleased with the continued story. If you haven’t read any of the Millennium books, you don’t know what you’re missing!
