You always have to worry about the second book in a series. Will it live up to its predecessor? Or will it hit that second book slump?

Jeri Smith-Ready does an incredible job with this book and I loved it even more than the first! Granted, this one definitely took me on a rollercoaster ride with all the ups and downs the characters are going through.

We ended the first book with discovering what happens to Logan and this one picks up right where it left off. I definitely had a few 'I did NOT see that one coming!' moments that really push the book in the direction its supposed to go.

Aura has to make some important decisions this book and I'm glad (for the most part!) she ended up making the right ones. You really do feel for her as she is pulled back and forth between her first love (Logan) and her new one (Zachary).

We finally learn more about Aura's parents and how they are connected to Eowyn (her mentor) and Ian (Zachary's dad) and Smith-Ready did an awesome job of bringing it all together. The puzzle pieces are starting to click together and I can't wait to start the final book in the series.
