Elyse has done everything she can to protect her friends from The Council’s reach. As long as they believe she’s dead, she has time to rest and train for war. And war is inevitable.
When Kara arrives with the news that Anna and Chloe have been captured, Elyse is faced with the realization that no one is safe until The Council is stopped and Christoph is destroyed. She doesn’t need a prophecy to tell her to lead an army. Christoph has done the one thing that ensures she’ll fight to the death. He’s threatened the people she loves. It will take more than the words of an oracle to help them fight against the most powerful Descendant alive. To break The Council’s oppression and rise up against a plot so many years in the making, Elyse will need to get dangerously close to her enemy. So close, in fact, she may not survive.
WOWWWWW!!!!!! The second book in this series got WAY better! You really feel Jessica’s writing style has improved. I am definitely hooked in this series as the story picks up quicker and quicker! The romance and insta-love thing was better in this book as it didn’t take over the novel and everything going on around everyone. Can we also talk about Alaximandros for just a moment? Um, Delicious? Brooding little jerk sometimes but still I love him better than William. I also felt that Elyse grew more into herself and we see her for who she really is in this book. She learns to stand on her own two feet and take charge. Thank you Xpresso book tours for sending me this book in exchange for my honest review.
