Evil should never be necessary. Except when it is.

"And now in breaking news, Caitlin Lockyer has been found. In the early hours of this morning, a man discovered her body dumped on a south-west beach. A police spokesperson would not confirm whether the girl known as the Absent Angel is alive or dead..."

They called her an angel.

No one thought to ask what kind.

Burning for retribution, now she'll stop at nothing.

Can it truly be evil when it feels so good?

About the Author

Demelza Carlton has always loved the ocean, but on her first snorkelling trip she found she was afraid of fish.

She has since swum with sea lions, sharks and sea cucumbers and stood on spray-drenched cliffs over a seething sea as a seven-metre cyclonic swell surged in, shattering a shipwreck below.

Sensationalist spin? No - Demelza tends to take a camera with her so she can capture and share the moment later; shipwrecks, sharks and all.

Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world.

The Ocean's Gift series was her first foray into fiction, followed by the Nightmares trilogy.

Deep heart wrenching truths revealed by Caitlin leave you nothing but respect for her raw honesty and will. And as you immerse with the characters once more you realize the depth is beyond calculation, leaving their story stamped on your soul. The second book of the nightmares trilogy keeps you intrigued, as well as the first book, and the suspense still churns with renewed quests. This story was a reveal from Caitlin's truths and again I couldn't put it down. As in real life, we all have versions of a story that another does not, and Caitlin had things to say that Nathan could never have imagined, keeping you rooted to the characters and feeling all their emotions, running the gambit from love to devastation. All of the feelings and passions kept tingling at a rapid pace, ensuring your heart was glued to the words that were both soft and glaring on page after page. Caitlin's experience was nothing short of shocking. Yet her spirit made your admiration of her so strong that reading each page was like a privilege; one you were thankful she allowed. You realize as she does, that one person was pivotal for her. One person kept the light on in the dark recesses of her mind as well as the depths of doom she was living; one person who really doesn't understand just how much he did. He thinks he didn't do enough. Demelza's gift for writing is again wonderfully evident in this book. She again directs a story with a straight purpose, letting the characters weave you through the scenes keeping you rooted to them and begging for more of the same. You feel connected to them in so many ways, even if you've never lived what they have. You feel. That's the key to her success. She writes so you feel all they are feeling and that's how it marches into your mind and makes a home, refusing to leave even after the story is done. Throughout this book as well as the first, I wanted answers to questions from the very beginning. With the story being told by the lead now, some very significant answers are revealed, but not all of them. If is apparent we will need at least one more book to settle the score. And with how I perceive Caitlin and Nathan now, settle is just the right word. As in real life, you realize these two are just not connecting in plain English sometimes. That ugly word assume is forefront and center, as they each think they know something they don't. Communication is the downfall of many a relationship, and even after all they have gone through, and relied on each other for, talking plainly is not their forte. No, hiding and skirting to what they think is helping the other is their preference, and really, when you understand why you love them even more. This story and the characters are developed with a depth and expanse that keeps you wondering and reveling in their spunk and perseverance, capturing your attention with no diversion possible. The journey and characters are so emotionally charged it leaves a mark on your soul; one you don't want erased or eased because it now has significance to your character; your heart, mind and soul. I know my take on this story may seem crazy as I gush in awe, but I loved it. I think it's great, wonderful, very written well, and you simply must read it. Bet you can't put it down either.
