About the Author
Jeaniene Frost, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, lives with her husband and their very spoiled dog in Florida. Although not a vampire herself, she confesses to having pale skin, wearing a lot of black, and sleeping in late whenever possible. And while she can't see ghosts, she loves to walk through old cemeteries. She also loves poetry and animals but fears children and hates to cook.--This text refers to the mp3_cd edition.

This book felt like it was hitting the check marks. Unknown sibling? Check! Long lost friend presumed dead? Check!Teenage emotion angst? Check! Story line that seems to be plodding along? Check! Rehashing the first book frequently? Check! Throw sex in to try to "live things up"? Check!
Veritas came across as a very whiny teenage-y type character. What happened to the Centuries old tough law guardian that took no crap? The one that snuck mixed breeds/innocents from the council users? The courageous vampire who obviously fought many ghouls, vampires and demons seemed to have disappeared. The emotional growth the book had potential for flopped. She knew why she did what she did but then it was all angst and not the rational/logical vampire she is.
Ian seems to have the sensitivity of a gnat and it turns around to blaming Veritas and she self blames as well for the reason why he was left. (Not going into to much depth to avoid spoilers) Ian then proceeds to whack Veritas over the head that she left him over and over thru out the book even though it is explained why and if the roles were reveresed. He also becomes very manipulative and treats her like a second class person. What happened to the equality and zing in the first book? Its almost sickening as well how Vertias gets treated and how she lets herself get treated.
I feel bad saying it but I really struggled to read this book. I put it down numerous times while reading it and I still have not finished it. I usually can finish her books in a few hours and get fully immersed into the story and characters. I have almost all of her other books which I loved. I was unpleasantly surprised and dismayed at this one.
Some SPOILERS ahead, proceed at your own risk
First of all, I loved the amnesia turnabout in book one but now I kinda wish Jeaniene Frost hadn't used it and just let them continue their amazing chemistry without interrupting it.
The magic was just gone. Veritas spilled everything pretty early on (I really thought she'd be more resistant) which made me think that the use of amnesia is plain lazy. What was the point it that? It didn't add anything to the plot except that Ian and Veritas now had "new" hurdles to jump through (even though Ian remembered most of the details anyway). I was not a fan of this half thing they got going on - they partly had to start their relationship anew and partly not. The strong chemistry I felt got left behind somewhere back then when I first read SoW in January last year. After Ian suddenly got all his memories back, their chemistry should have been back to normal but I didn't feel it, at all. And leaving out the amnesia part, they were basically back to their very first beginning as well - hunting down Dagon. Now that I think about it, book two is basically a recycled version of book one. Jeaniene Frost should have made SoW a standalone...
Maybe it's just me but I also didn't like how emotional Veritas suddenly became in this installment. She didn't act like someone who's over a thousand years old.
And can we talk about that ending? It was totally unnecessary to drag this out even longer, on top of that with a newly introduced character that came out of NOWHERE.
There were good things too, of course, though I had to scrape really hard to find a few things... Overall, I did enjoy the book to a certain degree, even though I know it doesn't seem that way, but this installment just can't compare to the first.
Ashael. I would love to read a book about him sometime. If Jeaniene Frost could make that happen, I'd be happy to buy it. Though he came off as a bit shady at first, I instantly took a liking to him.
Ian. Well Ian, weirdly enough I don't have much to say about him? Here I thought he was great as always but he kinda took a backseat in this installment. He's still present throughout the whole book so that's not what I mean but his usual mischievousness was missing (beginning excluded) and he got overshadowed somehow.
Silver. The cutest winged "dog" ever lol.
1) When did Ian become so charming and delicious? He is sex on stick with a side of smart ass. More please!
2) I'm dying to know more about Veritas/Ariel's past. How about a prequel? Yes please!
3) I can see future books on Ashael and Yohan. Excited!!
4) I got a smexy tingle when I read about Phanes. Need a book with him stat!
Other than that, read this book today. Play hooky if you need to or call in sick. Do it. Give yourself a day to enjoy this book. In fact, I'm about to re-read it again. 384 pages were too short when Jeanine Frost is the author!

Veritas thinks that she is home free to make good on her promise, but little does she know that Ian isn't about to give up on his own quest. So, when he finally faces her again, he is determined to get to the bottom of what previously happened. He is ruthless in his efforts while Veritas tries to keep him in the dark.
This book is a page turner with all its mysteries and surprises. It's nicely paced and the adventures are action packed. Their interactions are sometimes funny and sometimes frustrating with all the secrets. I thought that this second book wraps up their story, but they find themselves facing a new challenge at the end. I can't wait to see what's in store.
I thoroughly enjoyed this second installment, and now have to patiently await for the next installment.
Lots of action, danger, a few twists, a lot of laughs and a whole lot of steam. There's really not much more you can ask for... oh wait, what I really want is to hear from Ian's pov.
I read it in one sitting, it had me laughing out loud at the snarky remarks, reading faster & faster at the action bits & by the time I'd finished it, it felt like I had run a marathon.
I am absolutely looking forward to the next one in the series. An absolute great is all I can say. Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish.
