Rating: 5/5 stars.
Woah… That was intense. With such a glorious and momentous ending. There wasn’t too much of a cliffhanger. Thank goodness. But I still want the next book now!
Nym has risked her life to save a country that held her as a slave and outcast. But in the process, she has loss the few things she held most dear. All because of the shape-shifter Draewulf. Then he takes away her abilities and she realizes that she must stop him, at all costs. She follows him on to a airship headed to Bron searching for a way to kill him, while Draewulf has a more sinister plan than she could ever imagine. When Lord Myles offers her an opportunity to get new powers that could destroy him, she must decide whether it is worth the cost of her very soul.
I feel like I flew through this in a daze. It was crazy and intense…and a tiny bit creepy. There was no stop to the amount of emotion contained in this book. I love how it’s told. The similes are absolutely beautiful and made it so real. There was so much suspense and action and just the tense feelings between the characters kept me on the edge of my seat.
In the second book of this trilogy, there are new secondary characters and more characters overall that were around and played important parts. So it wasn’t as isolated as the previous book, which was very nice. This was great, but I still miss Colin so badly. He just lightened up the page.
There were so many hard decisions made. Ones that blurred the line between right in wrong. It got so twisted. This also made it more dark than the last one, but I loved it and it worked out pretty well.
It was very fun and interesting to see more of this world besides just Faelen. Bron was very advanced in technology from Faelen. I wish that it had been more descriptive of it, but considering what the characters were doing, it was fine.
Overall, this was an amazing book. I can’t wait to get my hands in the next one. How is it going to end? I’m recommending this to older teens who love fantasy. Such a unique read.
