Sylva Lark made her choice.
Now she has to adjust to Guardian life. Training. Killing demons. Controlling her powers.
If only giving up her family wouldn’t hurt so damn much, . . . and if there wasn’t a strange attraction to the betrothed Prince Atticus she just met . . .
Amongst murder and mayhem, and toeing an unclear line between right and wrong, Sylva and her fellow Guardians must find a way to secure Eirene.
But it’s not easy going up against underworld Queen Furie when those on Sylva’s side are hiding secrets . . .
Will they succeed in protecting the home of the angels? Or will they fail, submitting the heavens to the fate of Furie?
And will Sylva and Attic ever remember what they mean to each other?
Or will they stay forever Lethed?
I was so excited to read this book after the first one! So, the story continues with Sylva after being lethed. She continues her training as a Guardian without remembering anything about Attic. She still struggles with letting her human family go, and ends up stealing her cat from them! You understand why-she just wanted to keep a piece of her human life.
Then, she and her group of Guardians are invited to the main Guardians’ home in DC to attend the engagement announcement of the prince. Sylva has no memory of Attic, so she doesn’t have a problem attending the event.
She and Alyse are not on the best of terms but working a way to get along. You really start understanding the behaviors of the secondary characters more in this book. Sylva meets Dash while at the event and they sort of hit it off. She meets the Queen, who dislikes Sylva from the beginning. As the reader, you know why. As Sylva, she has no clue.
This story involves more of the relationship between Attic and Sylva, and they learned they have been lethed. Jason is a continued character in this novel, and you still question whether or not he is on the good side or the bad side. I have a feeling where things are headed for him, but not going to give that away.
The Queen makes things very clear to Sylva, that if she ever tries to have a relationship with Attic, they will be considered Rogue and hunted. Is love worth it? What does Sylva and Attic decide to do?
Oh, and Marcus is still struggling with his demon side. I enjoyed his story in this too. Anyta Sunday does a wonderful job pulling you in with the characters and struggling with them throughout the book. This one was shorter than the first, and I would have liked a little more from it, but overall was a very good book! I cannot wait to see what happens, but I guess I will!!! The next book doesn’t come out until 2014 😦
I give this one a 4.5 out of 5 stars!!
