This is a show stopping book. I loved the sequel even more than the first book which is really rare for me. Clio is almost like a new character. She has embraced her destiny and willing to try it a new way. It was a great change of pace. It was interesting to see the Clio develop but I missed her from the first book. You do get to see glimpses of the old Clio. I was pretty much on the fence after the first book whether I was team Derik or Riece. I have decided I am totally team Riece. I love how snarky he is with Clio. He really makes me laugh and I always picture him with a playboy smile. This book flowed so smoothly. I devoured it so fast. I am anxiously waiting for the next book. I am excited.
Holy moly. I loved this book. I'm not sure what took me so long to find it. I'm almost at a lost for words. It was amazing. The writing was flawless. The characters were so well developed. There was a great romance that was brewing during the whole book and it was well executed. My favorite character was Clio. I adored her courage to pave her own path. The title is very fitting for Clio. She is a strong heroine lead which can easily hold the attention of a reader. Clio is extremely brave from the first page until the last page. You get to experience the usual teenage angst but with a great twist. There are a lot of twist and turns and just when you think you have a great handle on things boom a new twist. I loved this book and devoured it pretty quickly. I plan on reading the rest of the series. This is the first book I have read from this author but I plan on reading anything else she writes.
