I was a little confused at the start of this book, but then I got where Rae was coming from. I did expect it to continue from where Pretty In Black finished, it kind of reverted to back pedaling and being seen through Marcus's eyes, which did answer some questions from book 1. Once we are caught up again....Walter has entered the scene. I do really love Walter's character, and is he a surprise package that one!! Did not see that coming. I thought something was coming, but not that! We understand Jillian's motives a bit more from the start of this book from Marcus's voice. I think she is still a jealous piece of work. We don't see Marcus much in this book as we have Walter. Marcus's presence is felt and sometimes seen, but Walter is the main guy present in Ellie's life. I really loved the clock scene and also the train that takes Walter and Ellie to The Land of Naught. The Land Of Naught, has a steampunk theme/futuristic theme. I did like this. I thought Rae wrote the train scenes and The Land Of Naught quite beautifully. I still have to google the word 'anthropomorphic'. Rather large word for my vocabulary....lol!! Ellie finds out some big secrets about herself in this installment, I quite liked what we found out. It opens more doors for storyline. We get more on Giles Mason Gertrude. We just had a snippet in book 1. Not sure how I feel about him. I know he truly believes in his cause. I liked the journals and the two people that were used to give the reader their version of Evermores. It cleared up some things in my mind. All in all this was a great installment in the series that ended on a note that I enjoyed. I am intrigued to see where Rae takes the story from here.

Black Satin tour, here it is! So here I am, listening to some Cocteau Twins to set the mood, and I’m just going to type it out. And in many ways, it fits the Cocteau Twins’ music. It was dreamy, it flowed well, and it transported you to another place. HERE is my review of Pretty in Black. Black Satin is the sequel to Pretty In Black. The beginning kind of reviews some of the first book, which I appreciated. Not so much because I needed the refresher, I read them back to back. But I appreciated it because I really loved the style Rae Hachton writes with. In fact, Black Satin even jumps a little bit ahead of Pretty in Black to give you some more background on Marcus. “Being with Ellie is like having a constant adrenaline rush shoot through me, electrifying my spirit.” In the beginning of this story I felt like the detail was more finely tuned than in its predecessor. But that is also partly because of the review from the first book, except from a different POV. We learn about Marcus and how he and Michael are in a challenge to become Prince of Nevermore when Zarfe retires. Kind of like a “Let the best man win” type of situation, and we get a bit more history about Jillian and Walter. And the Jillian/Walter/Marcus triangle. And then that morphs into a Walter/Ellie/Marcus triangle. Except that it doesn’t, not for Ellie. Ellie is unwavering in her love for Marcus, and that’s what I loved. She wants to be with him. Sure, there are moments where she thinks, hey, maybe I can be with this other guy. But she knows she is fooling herself. Marcus has her heart in a vice grip, and if he walks into the everafter, she may as well pass on too. The cons: I don’t like the whole Nevermore Slayer aspect. As in book one, I felt that it’s been done, and that it wasn’t really needed to tell the story. The Pros: Gargoyles!! Yep! This book has gargoyles! I’ve not read any books really with gargoyles, so this was a very special treat. This book will have you going through time and space, and it does get a bit steampunk in certain areas, which was totally unexpected. I’ve never finished a steampunk book and liked it, but this was pretty alright. Really, with gargoyles, vampires, and many love triangles, the steampunk barely phased me. All in all I definitely give this book a thumbs up. It was dramatic and unique. I’ve honestly never read anything like it. The author really has a beautiful style with words, and that beauty more than makes up for where the storyline stumbles a bit.
