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.
