To save the life of the boy she loves, Jacinda did the unthinkable: She betrayed the most closely-guarded secret of her kind. Now she must return to the protection of her pride knowing she might never see Will again—and worse, that because his mind has been shaded, Will’s memories of that fateful night and why she had to flee are gone.
Back home, Jacinda is greeted with hostility and must work to prove her loyalty for both her sake and her family's. Among the few who will even talk to her are Cassian, the pride's heir apparent who has always wanted her, and her sister, Tamra, who has been forever changed by a twist of fate. Jacinda knows that she should forget Will and move on--that if he managed to remember and keep his promise to find her, it would only endanger them both. Yet she clings to the hope that someday they will be together again. When the chance arrives to follow her heart, will she risk everything for love?
What I thoughtThis picks up right after the ending of the last book. I was glad, since I wanted to know more about Tamra and what was happening with her. I really didn't see this happening at the end of the first book! I inhaled this book so fast, leaving little time to think of anything else.
Before, I mentioned I wasn't so sure about the Romeo and Juliet or the love triangle story line. After this one, I'm still not so sure. I am now fully Team Cassian, but I have a feeling I'm not on the winning team. I don't know what it is, I might feel a little better about it if both of them weren't falling for Jacinda, but as it stands, I really do hope it's resolved soon and doesn't get left standing for the duration of the series.
This had more action in it than the first and I was happy to see a change of pace. There seems to be a lot that goes down in this book and it left me aching to get my hands on the third book. I'm curious to know if Sophie Jordan has the series planned out or if she's going off of a book by book basis. The way she leaves these books is criminal! I wanted to cry because the third wasn't within arms reach.
Jacinda has been fun to get to know. I don't feel as connected to her or as invested as I have some other characters, but I'm still wanting to know just how it all ends, who she chooses and what her fate will be. She's a strong character, wanting to do the right thing, even if it means risking her own life. Very admirable.
I'm glad I finally started this series. I'm even more glad to have started it when the second had just come out. I wasn't fortunate enough to wait for the third and I will be on pins and needles until I can get my hands on the next. This is definitely a series that everyone should read.
