Nariella's life changed the day that Mycah walked into her life. But nothing could prepare her for the change that she would endure when his secrets and past are revealed. Under the willow tree where Nariella once sought calm and serenity her life is thrown into shambles and those she loves are stolen away. Now her place of calm serves as a reminder of all that she has lost. Then her world is turned completely on its head, when she finds herself in a place she thought she would never see. Now she no longer knows who to trust, who she is, or where to go from there. Nothing is as it seems and Nariella will have to rely on her heart to save her. While Namine desperately tries to bring home the savior she is thrown into the pit with the one person she is trying to deceive. The one person she is not sure she can fool. Can she fool the King and bring home the savior? Everyone is tested. Everything changes and no one will be the same.

Sweet Escape picks up almost where Seet Oblivion left off. Not much has changed for Nariella since the fateful day when Rydan was lost to her. But when Mycah decides to try and find Rydan her heart and patience are truly tested. It is clear that she is in pain as she wallows in despair and crumbles in on herself, closing herself off to her friends and her life. Now I admit, though I am glad I got a look at her pain and a good idea of what it was like during Rydan and Mycah's absence, I do think too much time was focused on it. I kept thinking, okay, she is in pain and doesn't know if she can go on without him, I get it, now let's move on.

And that ends anything negative I have to say about this book.

I loved this book so very much and absolutely hated that it ended! Bailey starts where Sweet Oblivion left us, then takes us on an emotional roller coaster that had my stomach in knots until the very end.

She weaves her magic throughout the story. Bailey just doesn't write, she brings the story alive with her descriptions. I love having a movie play out when I read, it is what makes me read everything an author writes, and Bailey is definitely one of those authors.

What I liked about the book: Mycah! I loved him in Sweet Oblivion and I still love him in Sweet Escape! Several of my fellow readers became discouraged with him, albeit briefly, but I never did. I love that we get to spend more time with Rydan and Naminé! I believe their characters really come forth in this book, and you get to fall in love with them.

What I didn't like: Nari drove me BSC! Now, anyone who reads my reviews know that I love it when an author makes me angry, or makes me feel any strong emotion. That means that they have written the book so well that I was able to really get that picture into my mind. That is the case here. Just because a character or event ticks me off though doesn't mean I didn't love the book. These things had to happen for a reason, the story had to be developed and well, she IS an 18 year-old girl. I lost patients with them when I was one.

Would I recommend this book: Absolutely! This is such a magical series. It is filled with mystery, romance, and adventure. I believe anyone, young or old, can enjoy this journey!

Authors write characters hoping that you'll get attached to them. It's their job~ Bailey isn't going to be able to convince us to buy 3 more books if we're not in love with the characters by the end of Book 1. Well, mission accomplished.
The first book was the essential "sweet" book where you learned all that you needed to about the characters personalities so that you could fall in love with who they were. I couldn't wait until the 2nd book to see them develop and conquer the evil in their lives so that they could have peace. However,Sweet Escape didn't do that.
Set in a fantasy land of Elves and monsters, Nari, Mycah and the crew experience more abuse, pain, suffering, and torment than Ray could ever DREAM of dishing out. My heart broke over and over again for these characters as the things they went through in the new land changed them forever. They're never going to be the same and things are never going to be OK. Seriously though, I wish Sweet Requiem was the final book as I would like to see these poor wretches torment end.
As the series progresses, it turns into a book more suitable for adult than teens. I did sneak a look into the 3rd book by a few chapters and the F-Bomb makes it's first printed appearance instead of being alluded to. I am assuming this is a sign that the book is getting more grown-up as the characters mature. Also, book 3 promises to be just as intense as it starts off with a heartbreaking murder.
Also, I am not a fan of Tolken or Elves or even Fantasy but I am so involved now that I have to finish the series.
I am taking a break before I really dive into Book 3 because my heart is just broken for these characters. It hurts too bad to continue right now.

So, if you have read Sweet Oblivion, you know that Nari and Mycah love each other, but Nari’s life will never be the same again. I couldn’t wait to read Sweet Escape, and I ended up finishing it in one day. Boy, oh boy, did this break my heart!!! And I mean, it totally ripped my heart out, stomped on it, over and over!
Again, Bailey brings her magical touch. You can feel Nari’s pain, it’s like you are actually seeing through Nari’s eyes. This poor girl, her world has just been turned upside down, and she has to figure out things on her own. But her love for Mycah, will never fade. I LOVE Mycah, but he made me so mad, I just wanted to slap him, okay…several times I wanted to slap him. I understand, why Mycah did what he did, but STILL!!!!!! There was one part in the book, that I just did not understand, why Mycah did what he did!!! Once you read the book, you will understand what I am saying.
Even, though my heart was breaking for Nari, I couldn’t help to cheer for Rydan! And Namine too! Hehehehe! Oh, did I forget to mention…there is one scene, that you will praise Bailey for! SWOON! SWOON! SWOON!!!!!!!!
Of course, there is another cliffhanger! And it’s a big one!!!!
Bravo, Bailey for writing another fantastic book!!!
