What a ride !!!! I’ve been anxiously awaiting this book since finishing the first book. Especially after that ending. And this book picks us right where it left off and my initial reaction to what takes place is oh hell no !!! But talk about getting me engrossed immediately again. This book fascinated me for so many reasons. It was story telling in a way that had my attention from beginning to end. And I won’t get into the details but if you’ve read book 1 then I imagine you know what I’m talking about. The circumstances which seem to fate these two together so interesting and compelling that you instantly feel the connection that Lyra and Tavian have. How everything unfolds is sweet and seems destined to be. I loved their interactions with one another throughout this book. I found myself smiling so many times. Lyra finally embracing life and Tavian who melted my heart and had me seriously swooning. However there are a few obstacles namely one that shall not be named that get in the way. And dammit if it didn’t have me cursing up a storm and wanting to possibly throttle someone. At one point my heart dropped while at the same time feeling a murderous rage build. I wasn’t sure how this would end at certain points in the book as we are hit with some twists and turns and for me that made me love this even more cause I was on edge wanting to see how it all played out. This was without a doubt a great conclusion to this duet. Gripping, endearing, suspenseful and completely engaging. If you are looking for a unique read that will have you hooked from the first page of book 1 to the last page of this book then I definitely recommend this. I would even suggest to go in blind to both, don’t read the blurbs just enjoy the ride.
