YA Epic Fantasy
Date Published: 10/27/12
Ourea has always been a deadly place. The lichgates tying the hidden world to Earth keep its creatures at bay—for now.
Kara Magari ignited a war when she stumbled into Ourea and found the Grimoire: a powerful artifact filled with secrets. To protect the one person she has left, she strikes a deal that goes against everything she believes in. But things don’t go as planned.
Braeden Drakonin can no longer run from who—and what—he is. He has to face the facts. He’s a prince. He’s a murderer. He’s a wanted man. And after a betrayal that leaves him heartbroken, he’s out for blood.
To survive, both Kara and Braeden must become the evil each has grown to hate.
Note: This is book #2 in a series. You should read book 1 before picking up this one. And you will no doubt have the urge to read Book #3 after reading this one!
By this point we are well invested in these characters and SM Boyce does an amazing job of creating another installment that keeps up engaged and turning the page until the very end. The continued romance between Kara and Braeden was still my favorite part. I'm a sucker for romance. But we are introduced to several new characters and seeing the relationships and character development in them just added the the series for me.
This series is based in a wonderfully unique world that shows great imagination by the author. I love the characters and a I love the adventure they are on. I CAN NOT wait to read Book #3.
