What happens when happily ever after starts to unravel?
Eliyana Ember doesn’t believe in true love. Not anymore. After capturing the Void and saving the Second Reflection, El only trusts what’s right in front of her. The tangible. The real. Not some unexplained Kiss of Infinity she once shared with the ghost of a boy she’s trying to forget. She has more important things to worry about—like becoming queen of the Second Reflection, a role she is so not prepared to fill.
With the Verity intertwined with her soul and Joshua finally by her side, El is ready to learn more about her mysterious birth land, the land she now rules. So why does she feel like something—or someone—is missing?
When the thresholds begin to drain and the Callings, those powerful magical gifts, begin to fail, El wonders if her connection with Ky Rhyen may have something to do with it. For light and darkness cannot coexist. She needs answers before the Callings disappear altogether. Can El find a way to sever her connection to Ky and save the Reflections—and keep herself from falling for him in the process?
My thoughts: While I really enjoyed the first book in this series, I felt like this one was a bit of a disappointment. I liked Eliyana in the first story, but I got tired of being in her head with this book. And, it seemed like there wasn't quite as much going on, nor as many surprises as with the first book. I will still read the final book to see what happens, but it will be with the hope that the story will have more going on like the first book did.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for my review.
