My second year at Daizlei didn’t kill me. It did something so much worse.
It killed her.
And the world will never be the same because of it.
Anastasia thought she could own me. The Supernatural thought they could control me. They didn’t realize the darkness they courted until the walls of Daizlei came crushing down around us.
I always thought of myself as hard. Unbreakable. Unbeatable.
Until someone beat me.
Now…I was broken and I planned to use all my sharp edges for the one thing I had left.
**Warning: as the characters mature and grow so does the story. This novel is recommended for readers 16+.**
Ah, the story was picked up and easy to get into. This book had what most of Carpenter’s work does- lots of action and anticipation. There were twists that I definitely didn’t see, and Selena took a lot more time to actually develop and work on relationships in this book. I absolutely loved seeing everything that happens at the Alpha’s home where they are fully accepted as “refugees”. It’s brilliant how the young and innocent bring out so much curiosity in her.
Finally Selena comes to see herself as she is, and when she’s ready to tell the truth, in some places, she find she literally can’t. Luckily, she has a great band of people around her, and I am quite optimistic about what might come in the next book.
