A review by Amanda.
Warning: This review may contain spoilers from book one, Ignite The Shadows. This review was also proposed by the author.
Two weeks have passed since Marci was unceremoniously kicked out of IgNiTe. Two weeks since she found out that her seemingly perfect twin brother is an Eklyptor. It’s also been two weeks of bliss, now that she’s dating her best friend. Marci and Xave couldn’t be happier or more in love despite the fact that he still works for James and IgNiTe, helping with the dangerous missions and tracking down the evil parasites, who seem to be growing in number at an alarming rate. When she isn’t with Xave, Marci is trying to get back into James’s good graces by spying on Luke, trying to find out the truth and find answers to all of the burning questions she has – like why she can’t sense the Eklyptor agent inside Luke.
One of Xave’s missions takes him to the same club that Luke is frequenting, so Marci follows him hoping to keep them both safe and get some answers. Before she can do anything, a fight breaks out with devastating consequences. That fight sets off a chain of tragic events, all affecting Marci deeply. Reckless and desperate, she takes matters into her own hands and ends up buried up to her neck in trouble. With help from unlikely allies, Marci makes sacrifice after sacrifice doing whatever it takes to save the world. Can she keep her mind intact or will her heroic efforts cost her everything?
This book immediately absorbed all of my attention and held it until the very end. Marci was a dynamic character, full of depths that even she didn’t know existed. Romance, intrigue, heartbreak, betrayal… this story has it all. It will draw the reader in and wring them dry, emotionally. All of that is in addition to the main plot, which is plenty captivating on its own. This is one of those books that will have you up all night, turning page after page, and leading to a book hangover of epic proportions.
My rating: 5/5 stars.
