If you haven’t read book one check out my review here.
Months after Ceony saved Thane’s life, she still hasn’t gotten out of the student zone and fully admitted her feelings for Thane to Thane.
But a new threat to their peaceful coexistence has come along. An evil magician knows that Ceony is hiding a secret that can change the entire magical community and he will stop at nothing to find the truth.
This being book two, I was expecting way more character development and some actual romance. None of that actually occurred.
Ceony may have admitted to herself that she is completely in love with Thane but nothing actually happens. He touches her face, her shoulder here and there and the chapter before last you get his point of view but their “budding love” is nonexistent again. There is actually no need for it in this series because there is no connection between the two, physically or mentally.
As smart as Ceony is she throws herself in situations doing more hoping for the best then actually being able to win the battle. It really feels like pure luck that she is succeeding in each battle.
The series thus far has been slow, lacking of passion as well as a true romance. However, I am curious to see how the author ends it. I know Ceony and Thane are going to get the love they both apparently want but I am hoping for more passion for love and life in the final book.
