If you haven’t read the first book, check out my review for it here.

Nym has defeated evil and saved Faelen or at least so she thinks. When the battle is over Nym discovers that Draewulf has taken over the body of the man she loves and he has taken her powers. 

Nym is offered a new power, something she could never imagine but there are secrets to the new power and to the person willing to give it her.

Can Nym change history again or is she simply falling into a trap?

*Short Review*

I enjoyed the first book. I thought it was okay and had a lot of potential to being a really good series. However, after reading this second book I don’t believe that anymore.

Nym is a ball of depressing mess that makes the book extremely slow and hard to get into. I honestly thought that she would be a bit more grounded maybe sure of herself but nope that isn’t there. Her entire life (which I should have caught in the first book) is about her powers and this guy she loves. When both are taken away she has no idea who she is or for that matter who she really was. But she doesn’t really go out and try to find this out. She finds an alternative because she can’t live being a human and without her man.

I felt that the author did a really good job adding details to the setting, character features, the plot and emotional turmoil. I just couldn’t get past Nym. I understand depression and experiencing lost and being lost but man that girl didn’t even try.

The book was okay. I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first one. The lack of character development was too much to overlook despite the twist and turns within this book.
