Broken bonds, an impending darkness, and a sacrifice forged out of love…
After returning from Hypatia and a tragic encounter with the Elder Council, Taryn Malone finds herself stuck in the middle of a renewed feud between the love of her life, Larkin Taylor, and Keiryn Falcon, the boy she can’t seem to get out of her head, or her heart. Trying to fulfill her new duties as a big sister and official pack leader, Taryn struggles to keep the peace. When a brawl between the two boys threatens to expose her darkest secret, she must make a decision that will change the scope of both relationships.
But when a vision of death shows Taryn a new threat lurking on the horizon, she chooses to make the ultimate sacrifice to ensure the survival of her loved ones. At the stroke of midnight, on the start of the New Year, all eyes are fixated upon her as she says her final good-byes before leaving with the heinous monsters that have come to claim her.
Taken to Mors, home of the Mortari, Taryn comes face-to-face with the original brothers, and is stunned when she learns of their true intentions. Knowing that a single misstep could expose the depths of her gifts, thus giving them further leverage over her, she locks down her emotions more securely than ever before.
While in the presence of the Mortari, the frequency of Taryn’s visions only increase, as do her encounters with Death. In his riddle-like way, Farren shows her things that make her question if her whole life has been one big lie. Angry and confused, her rage becomes almost impossible to contain, pushing her over a jagged edge that could keep her from ever seeing those she loves again. Will she be able to persuade her captors that setting her free is truly in their best interest? Or will her all-consuming rage make her succumb to their ways for eternity?
Really liked this story
I didn’t think the second book in the series would be as good as the first one, but I was wrong. She’s like a super hero. The author gave Teran a good moral character who has to face her own anger issues and grow more mature to handle the threats of living in her world. These stories are clean of sexual content and profanity.
I freaking loved this book!
There’s some loose ends that I’m hoping will be tied as this story continues to piece together for the bigger piece.
Warning there is a cliffhanger at the end
Taryn who is selfless and would do anything to protect those she loves, willingly leaves to go with the Mortari. BUT, they discover although she’s a young girl, she’s smarter than they think.
We discover more about Taryn and when she walks away from the Mortari, she’s not the same girl before.
It broke my heart reading how Larkin was distraught when she left, and it made me even more sad when Keiryn didn’t want anything to do with him.
Although the Brothers C are cunning as the stories that have been told to Taryn, she also discovers a different perspective on history from their view.
And though Loryn tried taking over her body when she went to the Void, Taryn realized that although there seemed to be a spark with Chrystian, she knew Larkin was her true love.
And we discover a new ally for Taryn within the Mortari as she’s held there as a prisoner.
