For Eila Walker, history has become its own demon. After months of trying to keep ahead of those who are hunting her, Eila is more than ready to end her days of running. But her ancestor, Elizabeth, has left a twisted legacy in her wake that shadows Eila still, nearly 170 years later. When her grandfather reveals that he has kept a priceless piece of the past hidden in his vault on the island of Polaris, Eila and her friends are hopeful they may finally find the answers they so desperately need.
But just when Polaris is beginning to feel like a safe haven, a brutal attack leaves the group shattered. Eila, desperate to end the violence, soon finds herself drawn into the decadent underworld of the Mortis, where lies become truths, and allies . . . become killers.

**I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review** 4 stars Eila and her crew of Mortis/ own personal superheros is back and kicking more butt than ever. With Raef, Kian, MJ, and Ana back by her side, with a few other loyalist added into the mix, they are ready to take their fight to where it could all end or begin - given the weapons that could be created and used against her and her misfit friends. I really enjoyed leaning more about Eila's heritage and being shown the risks and rewards that she feels are necessary to restore her once great race to it's former glory. With some bumps along her long road to self-discovery, Eila has her ever-present love Raef to help her navigate the twists and turns that are thrown her way. If you are looking for just another sci-fi story, this might not be for you - this story has so much more! It has intrigue, betrayal, romance, strange alien races (with strange powers to shock and awe), friendship, and loyalty. I will be eagerly awaiting the next and final chapter in Eila's journey!!
