Emma faces herself changing into a vampire yet again, like in her past life as Cassandra. In this book, she gets some insight into an even older version of her soul, through Hanna/Hanns (this will be explained).
Hanna is forced to pretend to be male to help her father keep his shop and means of income through teaching German fighting. Hanna goes to a male-only school, lives as a boy, until her secret is discovered.
Julian, Emma’s soulmate, is trapped in a soul world called Memoria Can Emma free him? We’ll see, I guess…
KoR, the secret society who hunts and eliminates supernatural souls, take a step into the background in this book’s plot. I am certain we haven’t seen the last of them, though…
There is also the appearance of Laurance, a vampire from Cassandra’s past life. He is the vampire who took Cassandra under his wing as his apprentice.
Also, here we are introduced to were-bears – specifically Esben. Still trying to figure out whether he can be trusted and if he is on the good side.
There is an odd change in Stefan after his wolf dies to save his life. An odd spirit takes the place of his wolf, giving him weird abilities and it frightens him so much that he tries to distance himself from Emma to protect her from himself.
Romance in this book isn’t as prominent as in the first. We do see some development between Emma and Stefan. Most of the romance comes through Hanna and her life.
More than this, I refuse to say. The world inside this one, created by Shay, is amazing and easy to get lost in. Even though the ‘pov’ of the book jumps between characters, it’s easy to follow and keep track off. I didn’t get overwhelmed by the main plot and sub-plots.
Clearly, I cannot wait for book 3 and I will be sure to let you know as soon as a release date is made available for this book, with a cover reveal *hopefully*!
After Emma our reluctant and changing character finally finds her soulmate of centuries, she was surprised when he helped her to transcend again, but quickly horrified as one enemy uses the dagger Sindom she was in charge of to erase him. Even the danger Sindom becomes an active character in this tale, desperately sought after by the evil witch Rowan, yet feared by those who know what it does and coveted by those who want its power Emma must protect it, while fighting off those against her. Emma has far more to deal with though with the changes in Stefan losing his Were but finding the trickster, Julian gone and erased from everyone else's memory; spirits,witches and gods at odds and the KoR after her, Emma still has to deal with the process of trancending, her strange love triangle, traveling to spirit realms, new flashbacks of her as Hannah/Hanns and whom she should really trust in her attempt to stay alive and save humanity from Rowan's plan.
If I could I would give this a four and three quarters stars but only for one reason, it was not as smooth for me and took a bit for me to get into because of the flow. It was choppy jumping from one persons story to the next at first; however, the flow became better as the book went on and the characters back stories began to come together.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantastic characters, in depth storylines, and cliffhangers driving the action. I am eager to dive further into the story in book three. Will Emma be able to come back, will her knowledge be enough, can she help Stefan, defeat the witch, evade the KoR, save Julian and the world? I am hooked on these stories.
It was very interesting delving into the pasts of characters, and learning more about their present too.
This leads up to book 3 nicely, and made me incredibly excited to complete the series.
Now there are a few typos and incomplete sentences/thoughts written, but it's not hard to figure right out and charge forward.
Thanks Shay for sharing your talent and can't wait for the next in the series!!!!
