The system has been changing; the Agency flaunts its cruel practices, and the balance of the realms has been disrupted. Ethan's enforcers are already stretched to the limits, and things get worse when alliances are forged between the worst of the demon realms. Meanwhile, on Empustat, Carolyn has spent an entire year being "reconditioned" - her memories being wiped and replaced in order to produce a limited and vapid princess. Under the constraints of the Chief, she is no longer the feared and mythical "destroyer" Carolyn's life of privilege is marred only by the expectations held for her to marry Peter and produce heirs for the realm. Her friend, Mario, in contrast, has suffered hardship and humiliation at the hands of the Lilim guard - and a chance encounter will spur Carolyn's awakening. The disabled gateway has frustrated the team's efforts to reach Carolyn, and Ethan and Note can barely tolerate each other, but both mage and demon share the same goals. Hope by way of an unexpected source leads to the team embarking on a plan so daring that their survival hangs in the balance. With old and new friends from the realms, the fight for order continues.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I had to read this book IMMEDIATELY after completing the first of the series, The Calling. As with the first, Ms. White does such an exquisite job of describing vivid details throughout the entire story. You literally believe the places she creates are real. Never have I read an author who pulls the reader into her/his storyline the way Ms. White pulls in her readers. I will not divulge details, just trust me when I say you HAVE TO READ THIS SERIES!! And, keep an eye out for more books by Ms Louise G White. You will not want to miss her. Way to go, Ms. White. You have become one of my very favorite favorites. I am so thankful Choosy Bookworm has its Read and Review program to bring me to you. You are amazing. Always, Angie Goodson
