Overview

Edited by Leslie Mitchell at G2 Freelance editing and re-released 8/20/13.

For the past four years Cassie has only known vampires as her enemy. With the revelation of Devon’s true nature she must come to terms with the fact that not everything she knows is right, especially when the true source of her Hunter powers is revealed. Slowly, Cassie begins to unravel the mystery that enshrouds Devon as the bond between them grows and intensifies. It’s not until a woman from his past walks into their present, that Cassie realizes there are far more layers to Devon than she ever realized. Layers that may very well destroy her, and everyone that she loves.
Thrown off by the new arrival in their town, and struggling to survive, Cassie is not prepared for the devastating blow that leaves the world she knows nothing but a pile of rubble and ashes. Ashes that may very well give rise to something else inside of her, something that’s not entirely human.

    After the cliffhanger ending of Kindred, I simply had to read t

    After the cliffhanger ending of Kindred, I simply had to read this, there was no question about it! This book takes off minutes after the first left off, with Devon :SPOILER FOR FIRST BOOK: rushing the wounded Cassie to the emergency room. :SPOILER OVER: As I said before, I read the first four books of this series in a four day marathon, downing one after the other because I was having too much fun.



    The plot:

    Characteristic of Stevens’ writing, the plot is fast and doesn’t disappoint. It read very quickly and very easily, never letting the reader sink into a sense of boredom, but at the same time giving plenty of pauses. While reading I tried not to compare this to Stevens’ other PNR vampire series, The Captive (which has a secure seat on my Shelf of Awesome), but there is definitely the same style of heart-stopping romance interspersed with intense action.



    The characters:

    There is a level of development among the characters, particularly in their relationships. Cassie and Devon become closer in lieu of sharing their secrets and battling Julian. Meanwhile, Cassie’s Hunter friends, Melissa and Chris, as well as Luther, their mentor, and her grandmother, must learn to deal with the newfound knowledge that Devon is not only a vampire, but an exceptionally powerful Elder.



    In this book, we also meet Isla, a completely despicable antiheroine who crawls up from Devon’s past. Julian is more prominent in this book, though he still stays mostly in the shadows without much chance to really get to know him. Nonetheless, he makes a prize villain and I was gaping at my eReader screen in horror of what he might do next.



    Overall, I greatly enjoyed this book, I am a massive fan of this author, and I highly recommend this series to readers of upper YA paranormal romance who like vampires!

    This is the second book of the five book series. This one picks up right where the first left off. There is a lot more action in this story than the first one. We get to watch Cassie and Devon fall even more in love, and find out a lot about Devon's past. There is some happy times in this and some very sad times. Really good series! Starting the next book now.

    WORTH READING!
    Book 2 was just as good as book 1. There were some minor punctuation errors (commas in places that didn't need them or places missing commas). Onward I go to Book 3!

    This book is alright. I felt that the author was being very descriptive in regards to how characters are feeling or what they are doing but at the beginning of the book she describes a vampire as a "man/monster". I thought this was very odd. Another thing, if you're going to write about specific things aka Mustang, the facts need to be correct for example. The first Mustang did come out in 1964 however there is no such thing as a 1964 Mustang. It was a 1964 1/2 Mustang. Overall the book was okay could have been better in my opinion.
