Some days feel like years, but in Ember Brycin’s case just the opposite is true. She had only been in the Other world for a day or two when she returned back to the Earth’s realm. But it is three years later on Earth. Em is now 22. It would matter if she was human, but she’s not. She is a Dae, part demon and part Fay, with a  little Dark Dweller thrown in to make her even more of a freak.

Seeing Seattle rebuilt only confirms she has been gone three years. For her it was not long ago that the Seattle area was just rubble of concrete and death. All done by her hand.

One thing that hasn’t changed, though, is her undeniable connection to Eli Dragen, who is sexy, gorgeous, and even more volatile and frustrating. But her problems go way past him. The seelie Queen of the Otherworld still holds Mark, Em’s father, and her friends Ryan and Josh as hostages. Em needs to rescue them without, once again, getting caught and being used as a pawn to help the Queen regain possession of Earth. At the same time Ember is in hot water with Lars, the Unseelie King, after breaking her contract with him.

As some secrets have come to light others seem to become even more enigmatic. The only truth Ember knows, is everyone is harboring secrets. As Eli’s past is revealed, Em understands more clearly why he acts the way he does and how much their lives are intertwined. but she also know s Eli is holding something back, something that could change their relationship forever.

Em herself continues to wrestle with her feelings toward Torin and her own secret she’s withholding from Kennedy. As the tension for war mounts between the Seelie and Unseelie (Light and Dark) the tension at the Dark Dweller’s compound mounts even more as they prepare to obtain the sword no matter what price. But is Ember the answer to the location of the sword? Is she the one to fulfill the prophecy?As usual nothing is ever what it seems.


Ugh!! Okay where to start.

Eli and Ember pissed me off through the first half of the book. Josh’s plot twist I could see a mile coming. Lars I didn’t. Torin annoys me. I use to like him in the first book now he is that guy who has a crush on you but no matter how many times you friendzone or block him he keeps coming back. Thara is just as annoying. I don’t like Lily. The only ones I did like were Cal and Simmons.

I love the story line I just hate the characters but two. They frustrate me to no end.

Sorry to not have a better review but I don’t want to spoil anything I just want to not jump into the book a kill a few people. Mostly Ember because she is a fucking dumbass who if she wasn’t so self centered with her drama with Eli she would see things clearly.
