About the Author

Gillian Shields is the author of Immortal and Betrayal, the first books about the sisterhood of the Mystic Way, as well as many other books for young readers. She spent her childhood roaming over the Yorkshire moors and dreaming of the Brontë sisters. After studying in Cambridge, London, and Paris, she became a teacher. She has taught in a girls' boarding school and also in a drama school where it was rumored that the ghost of a young girl could be heard crying in the night. Gillian was inspired to write this series in celebration of the power of first love, the strength of female friendship, and the haunting mystery of the past.

I had read Immortal last year, and I really enjoyed it. So I was really looking forward to the next installment. This was everything I hoped for, and more! It was a little surprising and I cried while reading during one point. But all in all, I really enjoyed this book. A definite MUST if you liked the first one, Immortal. Buy this book, You won't be let down!!!(:

I completly forgot this book was coming out and I was super pupmed when I saw this while I was on vacation in Florida! It kinda started out alittle slow for me i guess and i might have just been because I hadn't read the first book in while so trying to remember things. I couldn't put it down in the end I wanted to know what happens between Evie and Seb. I DID NOT WANT IT TO END!!!! I wont give the ending away, but it was suprising, but cute at the same time! It would be so hard for what Evie had to do!!! I am interested to seeing if Gillian writes a series off of this series!!!

Gillian Shields continues Evie Johnson's journey through her past to save her future at Wyldcliffe Abbey. But Evie Johnson is not just trying to save her own future, she is trying to save the future of her new found sisters, Helen and Sarah, and true love, Sebastian. In her journey to find a cure to keep Sebastian from forever becoming part of the darkness, Evie also learns more about her past and the past of the Talisman. She also learns who is her enemy and who she can trust. Gillian Shields' sequel to Immortal was a bit disappointing in my opinion. I unfortunately did not find anything unique about this book. I found Evie's love for Sebastian overplayed, as I did in the first book. I also found Sebastian's character to have made a complete 180. On the other hand, there were quite a few things that I really enjoyed. Evie as a character for example. Evie is much stronger in this book, making her much more believable. I also really enjoyed the relationships she formed with Sarah and Helen (even though at times their friendship seemed one sided). I honestly believe that without her new strength and friendships she would not have been able to make the decisions she made. Even though I might not have added this book to my favorites, I do hope that Gillian Shields continues this series, as I know that there is much more in store for Evie and her new found Sisters.

I can't wait for this book. The first book, Immortal, left me with unanswered questions in the end. Will Sebastian show up again? Will they be able to be together? How did the High Mistress and the other get away? Did they take Sebastian? I need answers to these questions and hopefully this next book answers some. I do recommend the book Immortal. It does start out a bit slow (she meets Sebastian around page 10 and doesn't see him again until page 100 for goodness sakes!) but it's well worth it.

This was an amazing read. It took me a while to finish but I cried at the end. No spoiling here though! I would definetley reccomend to any reader of Immortal, really anyone who likes a good ol' gothic romance. Just make sure you've got a box of tissues present at chapter 45 till the end at earliest.

I liked how it ended. If he didn't die the way he did he would of died an unfaithful death. He had to die some time wether he is imortal or not. Let him die a peaceful death.

This was a fast paced, adventure filled book. It continues where Immortal left off, and in my opinion, even better than the first book. I love how this story stresses female friendships. I love that Sarah and Helen are there for her and they have open conversations and a close relationship. While this is a love story, I am glad that Evie makes room in her life for other things. Harriett was an interesting addition. She was well written in that I felt much like Evie- I wanted to like her but something about her just doesn't sit quite right. I could not give it 5 stars because at times I was ahead of the plot. I also don't like that Evie and Josh have that connection-- Sarah did have a crush on him, and even though they talked about it and Sarah is okay with it-- I wish there could have been another guy instead of him to take that place. She beautifully crafted the ending, and it fits well with the book and its themes.

I read the first book a lllloooonnnngggg time ago, way before I was a blogger. I liked it and when Waldenbooks (AKA Borders) went out of business, I end up picking up this book. I hoped that since the first book fell a little flat for me, the sequel will pick up. Plot: This plot remains the same as the first with a few differences. Evie is back at the border school, picking up what is left of her life. We all know that in a border school no secrets stay hidden. And before you know it, Evie is back into the same mess she was before, this time alone. I think the plot follows what most people will enjoy. It has that border school feel, with drama and lots of mystery. The beginning felt a bit slow since Evie was recapping what happened in the first book but once you hit mid-middle, things starts to pick up. Love: I found this love to be really…strange. He is supposedly dead but not quite. Not sure if that makes any sense, but he gives her clues and helps Evie gain the tools she needs to fight evil at the school. The story also switches pov of both Evie and Sebastian. I found Sebastions pov kind of pointless. He pretty much said the same things over and over. I do however, like that his love for Evie help me stay strong. End: The ending has a bittersweet moment in which Evie has to face loss all over again. There are few minor characters that peaked my interest and I’m anxious to see what roles they will play in the next book. Overall, indeed this book did pick up some. This story does give the reader a bit more meat to chew. We learn more history on the school and why the evil resides there. Betrayal brings more emotions to the readers and more depth to the story. Betrayal is good.
