My Review:

This book goes more in depth in the history of Mara and Noah's family history.  It was an interesting surprise to find out about Mara's grandmother having visions just like Mara.  I really felt for Mara because her family and everyone seems to think she is crazy or delusional except for Noah and Jamie.  Even at times I wasn't sure if events were even real or not and that is scary.

I'm really glad that her family is there to support, love her and want to help her get better even though they are scared of her at times.

The chemistry between Mara and Noah is even hotter in this book with the steamy dialogue between them.  Noah informs Mara here is there to support and take care of her.  He's more quiet and reserved in this one but near the end we catch a glimpse of a crack in his shell to the vulnerable boy inside.


Thanks Simon and Schuster Canada for sending me this book to review, greatly appreciated!

I can NOT wait to read this one. I loved the first book and it was my favorite of last year but I've put off reading this one. I guess I don't want to be disappointed but it sounds like I won't be.

Oh and I'm so happy you mentioned Jamie! I love him to pieces and if he didn't come back in this book I was going to protest this series.

Thanks for the great review
