Ms. Rowe is right up there with my other favorite authors like Ms Ward and Ms. Adrian. This series is a Great Read! I already ordered the other books in this series that are currently out. So I off to my little corner to read the next book. Thank you Ms. Rowe for writing this series.
This book picks up where the 1st one ended. Lily Davenport has been kept prisoner and tortured for 2 years by Nate Tipton, a crazy Calydon warrior who was under the influence of the evil Ezekiel who has been imprisoned in a magical prison for over two thousand years and wants out. Lily was a professor who was a renowned Calydon expert who wrote books and did seminars about the Calydon warriors who she despised. One warrior in particular she hated the most. Gideon Roarke. When Lily's grandfather went rouge Gideon had to kill him and also his wife. All of this was done in front of their son and daughter. Year's later Lily brother who was also a Calydon died in the crossover. Lily has always blamed Gideon for the destruction of her family. But Lily also has a tie to the Calydon warriors that she cannot break. She is a Satinka. Satinka's have earth magic and there magic seeks out a Calydon who is worthy of her. Lily is a extremely powerful Satinka and her magic test all Calydon warriors she comes in contact with to see if he is the one. Her magic when given to a Calydon warrior makes that warrior even more powerful. After not hearing or seeing anyone for days while locked in a basement a rogue Calydon breaks down the door. As Lily tries to escape she is rescued by Gideon but as she doesn't trust any Calydon's and while Gideon is fighting off many more rogue Calydon's she escapes. But Gideon catches up with her again and saves her from more warriors trying to kidnap her.
Gideon Roarke is known to be the most fearless warrior who is stone cold when it comes to emotions, that even when he watched his sheva being killed in front of him 500 hundred years ago it didn't affect him. We find this to not be true. His internal struggle with his emotions when he first meets Lily confuses him. He has already met his sheva he shouldn't be having the feelings he is for her. But Lily with all her knowledge of the Calaydon warriors knows that she is his sheva. This is a blow to both of them as Lily has sworn to hate Gideon and Gideon doesn't understand how he could have a 2nd sheva and doesn't want to go through losing one again. Even after finding out that Gideon was the one she had sworn to hate her whole life she realizes that she is not only Gideon's sheva but also his Satinka.
For most of this book we watch as both Gideon and Lily struggle with this. They both had preconceived notions about each other and after they both tell the other about their tragic past they realize they were both wrong. Gideon's internal struggle was very touching to watch.
As we know from the ending of the 1st book Frank Tully (who was working with Nate) had kidnapped Drew who was Dante's son. We find out that Frank is really an illusionist like Ana and Grace and that he played a big role in what happened to Ana and Grace's parents. Ana is confused by Frank and keeps going to him and when he ask her to get the knife with the ancient markings on it she does not knowing that Frank has evil intentions for her, Lily and Drew.
In a huge showdown at the end of the book we find out what Frank's true intentions are. We also find out some answers to questions that we were left with in the first book but things are far from over. We will have to wait for the 3rd book which is sure to be the best.
