Book Description

Now in the hands of her progenitor at the Springfield enclave, Mari struggles with this new relationship and Christoph driving her to develop the gift of foreshadowing. Rare as the ability is, it seems an absurd expectation, even having learned that he’d specially bred her over four generations in order to use her visions as an advantage in battle. But it’s in her own interest to try. Seeing into the future could mean seeing a way of escaping him, of returning to Troy. Though guarded as she is, there’s little doubt it would be a life forever on the run. It seems the only way she’ll ever see that way out is by not fighting Christoph’s rights to her and appearing to accept her place in the clan. As her sight begins unfolding, she finds her visions not only aiding Christoph but resulting in her own unexpected rescue missions with the help of Tiara, her new handmaiden.
Considering Mari lost to him, Troy pursues a coldhearted course of revenge against the woman who betrayed her. Leading her down the path of a future together, his discovery of Hannah’s hidden past will bring her to her downfall. That is, if he can keep her in the dark long enough as he tries to stay a step ahead of David. Still under Mari’s captivation, he’s intent on prosecuting Troy for her murder after Christoph fabricates her death in human society in order to sever all ties to her old life. Mari’s having planned for her future only makes matters worse.
Disgusted with Troy’s appearing to have abandoned Mari, Garlin begins implementing his plans to abduct her from Springfield, even at the cost of renewing the war between the Kansas City and Ouachita Colonies. Involvement with the warriors at the Joplin enclave for their military intelligence is risky business. With the help of a friend and an unexpected ally in the cause, getting in to the Springfield enclave, however, may not be quite as hard as getting back out.

Another great read!

When I started reading book two I didn't like Christoph, but got hooked in this relationship of Mari's while following Troy's exploits and watching for him to rescue her. I can see how someone planning for a foreshadower for 4 generations would care for his creation, am anxious now for book three to see how this triangle plays out.

5.0 out of 5 stars If I could rate this any higher...! May 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was quickly hooked by the first book in this series. The second one doesn't disappoint. It only got better as we delve more deeply into this world, the characters' lives get more complicated and the individual challenges they face get woven together. As ever, Adams keeps you turning the page with her easy to read style, beautiful descriptions and a few surprising turns. The talk of the break room at work, these are those books that you'll read again, finding hints of later events you didn't see before. I'll definitely be watching for the next installment in the series.
