I lost touch with books for about a decade because of life but thankfully I am able to return to this beautiful world. Eclectic mix from YA to erotica. I blame fanfic.
I'll be honest I didn't love this book as much as the first in the series but I did enjoy reading it as much. This time though my excitement came from returning to a story that I was deeply invested in. The pace is inconsistent and some set ups seems forced to me, almost filler material.
Ruby is endearing as ever and she grows stronger, more resilient by each chapter. She's someone I hoped I would have grown into; giving and strong.
This is not a series I'm giving up on. The story is good and Alexandra Bracken's style is effective. I look towards the final instalment with trepidation -as I feel it will make or break the series for me - but it's one of the things I'm looking forward to in life and that's not half bad.
