The Messenger rocked your world, and now she's back. But have her lies finally caught up with her?
Trust doesn't come easy for Kesh Lasota. She survived life as a slave, survived the Dreamweaver's touch, but surviving Marshal Kellee and the mysterious Talen is a whole other game, one she's not sure she's ready for.
When the three are captured by a bloodthirsty fae general sweeping through the last of Halow's human colonies, the only weapons they have left are lies. And so Kesh must pretend to be the gladiator they all expect, while Kellee is forced to fight against her, and Talen is... Well, just who is Talen when he can command soldiers with a glance and move among the fae elite as though he belongs?
Trust doesn't come easy for Kesh Lasota, neither does love. She must survive both, or everything she's fought for will be lost forever, including her men.
The enchanting & mind-blowing Messenger series continues with more action, more romance, and more exciting twists!

In this book , the story picks up where Shoot The Messenger ended. Trust is still an issue between Kesh, Talon, and Kellee. Along with trust comes the word lies and Kesh can do it quite well but lack of info is just as close to lying. The three will experience the past come to haunt them and some of the things are surprises for them and you! Yes, there is lots of things going on but be expected to realize that some of the hints of things to come are there in the story. The surprises for me were the ending of one of the subplots and the plans for future. Oberon is expected to react the way he does but he is in for an awaking. Will Kesh be able to ignore the conditioning she has endured in the past? Will this conditioning disrupt future plans to help the saru?
Action, yes and lots of it! A bit of humor, at least for me there was. Now the romance of Kesh and who, well that is the question! I know what I would like to happen and I am sure the reader will form their own opinion. But Pippa, you have some very very interesting story lines for the romance parts. Keep up the excellent writing!
Do I recommend this book, that is a big YES!!!! I think if you did not read the first book you will be missing lots of information. Read and enjoy! I started the book Friday and when I woke up at 3am Saturday morning I read until I fell asleep. Such a vicious cycle for me because it happened again Sunday, morning. I really hate to put down such an interesting excellent book!
