Zaina thought she could run from her secrets, but they have finally caught up to her.
She’s willing to risk her life for those she loves, but even that might not be enough to stop what’s coming.
Einar has finally let down his guard, but when the woman he trusts takes off in the middle of the night with his people’s only hope for a cure, he realizes what a mistake that was.
They have been living under the shadow of the same monster for longer than either of them realize. But it’s up to them to decide whether that makes them enemies or allies.
You’ve heard it asked, who could ever learn to love a beast? But this time, the question is, could a beast ever learn to love?
Like the book that came before it, this book was made entirely possible by the main characters not properly communicating and trying to do everything on their own. While that in and of itself can be potentially seen as noble, by this time, you would have thought they would have realized, without being TOLD, that working together will likely be far more lucrative. Once more, there was also very little connection between this novel and the fairy tale around which it is allegedly based; however I am fairly certain I know which “fairy tale” at least one of the other sister’s would end up in.
That being said, I demolished this book; once I started, I couldn’t put it down! It definitely picked up from the first book’s pacing, and while one might say this particular arc of the overall plot was finished, there was more than enough left to leave the reader wanting to continue on with the series. I am content knowing the “resolution” of this arc, and do not intend to continue on with the series, however, if you love it- then full steam ahead! This is the second of five books (so far), with the fifth set to release June 9th.
