Darkness never works alone...
Nadya doesn’t trust her magic anymore. Serefin is fighting off a voice in his head that doesn’t belong to him. Malachiasz is at war with who--and what--he’s become.
As their group is continually torn apart, the girl, the prince, and the monster find their fates irrevocably intertwined. They’re pieces on a board, being orchestrated by someone… or something. The voices that Serefin hears in the darkness, the ones that Nadya believes are her gods, the ones that Malachiasz is desperate to meet—those voices want a stake in the world, and they refuse to stay quiet any longer.
I was given this title in exchange for an honest review.
I KNEW IT!!! I KNEW IT!!!! I TELL YOU THAT I KNEW IT!!! I won't say what I knew because spoilers but I knew it! You'll see if you decide to read this book.
Now, let's dive into this one, shall we? It's just as dark, gritty and rather hopeless feeling as the first one. Which I'll admit made me more depressed with everything that is going on in the world right now. But something this book does well is it gives that tiny spark of hope so you'll keep going, just praying something comes along to break the darkness that gathers all around. It's perfectly gothic and chilling.
Now, it is longer than the first and can take a wee bit of time to get into it. At least it did for me, but once it does get going.... boy! It doesn't stop and that ending just has me feeling all sorts of stuff! I can't wait for the next one!
