Top Customer Reviews
Her three best friends are excited about life after high school, while every time she thinks about the future, her stomach becomes tied with knots.
Could it be that Bailey doesn't really have a choice when it comes to her future? While she lives the life of the average high school girl, her life is far from normal. She's part of the three fates that weave and control the destiny of the world. The Sidhe world has rules that Bailey doesn't understand. She suspects something's about to happen when she's brought into the Sidhe world for the first time.
When the truth comes out, will it forever change Bailey's view of the world?
Jennifer Lynn Barnes starts this sequel of TATTOO two years later. She perfectly blends normal everyday life in high school with a supernatural world. Plus, the powers of friendship shine through in this novel and will resonate with readers - particularly those ending their own high school careers.

I'm not sure if that lapse in between stories contributed to my inability of get into this story. I honestly almost gave up on this book a couple of times. I felt like it had a hard time getting past the Sidhe background. It was long and drawn out. The action was reserved for the last little bit of the book. It really wasn't enough to make the book really worthwhile to seek out.
I did like how the ending turned out. The Sidhe were trying to make Bailey play by their rules, when they didn't really apply to her. She something entirely different, so she should be an exception to the rules. I also enjoyed how the Sidhe represented different gods/goddesses throughout history. I enjoy when a book can take different views from different cultures and wrap them into one story that makes sense.
I would probably pass on this book unless you enjoy other books by Barnes, or have all ready read Tattoo.
Set two years after the events in Tattoo, Bailey and her friends are getting ready to graduate from high school and move on with their lives. Unfortunately, Bailey is not ready to move on, or away from her friends. Plus, everything is complicated by her work as a Fate and the quickly approaching Reckoning. Can she find a balance in her life?
This novel was at least as enjoyable as the first novel. I really enjoyed the fact that Bailey's friends would get mad at her for "moping" as many teen novels really focus on the angsty side of life. The new characters were interesting, though I found some of the references to Greek and Roman mythology to be a bit confusing and muddled in this installment.
This book is great for tweens, there are no questionable elements like sex, drugs, or rock'n'roll. 3/5
When we last met her in TATTOO, a supposedly temporary tattoo awakened Bailey Morgan's Sidhe blood. Now in her dreams she travels to Nexus, and meets with two ancestors who help train her powers. Together they are the three Fates, but the Otherworld is starting to bleed into Bailey's human life.
The main theme here is choice, and if you actually have one. Though Celtic mythology is commonly associated with Sidhe, the author's decision to add Greek mythology to the mix pays off. Bailey is a rare find in fiction - a character whom is not only extremely relatable, but also rather likeable, and her friends are the best friends a girl could have. Not to mention the mother who regularly bakes cookies, so obviously Zo understands the importance of our favourite foodstuffs. It's so refreshing to read teen characters who aren't obsessed with popularity, designer brands and multiple suitors. Though it lacks the shocks and surprises I require to declare something a five-star read, this is a solid quality four-star occasion.
