This book is tense!!!
Okay, so after the events of the first book, Crimson Midnight, this book starts off with us wondering how Rose will get out of her current predicament. She is herself, but not herself. She is stuck inside her own mind, her body merely a capsule at this moment. But a deal with an unknown entity allows her to come back, along with a friend or two. Tehe. Well, friend is a very general term. We should probably say that they are her protectors, which, in the current state of the city, pretty much screams friendship to me.
So Rose has been changed by the events of the first book. She has great power inside of her just waiting to be released at her very call. But, as the old proverb states, with great power comes great responsibility. She is going to have to make some very difficult decisions regarding herself and her friends, and not everyone is going to be happy with the choices she makes.
Along with Rose, Roman is also changed. Because his wolf is now gone, he somewhat feels lost and possibly unworthy of even being around the people he has known forever. He is moody and a bit 'woe is me', and somewhat annoying in this. UGH!! He keeps mentioning that he is not good for Rose and no matter how good they are together, or at least how good they were together in the first book, everything has changed. Okay, news flash! Dude, suck it up! Your wolf may be gone, but that doesn't mean you just give up the fight! Just because you feel weak or helpless doesn't mean you should let that consume you!! I mean, seriously! Rose's life is falling around her throughout this entire book and she stands strong and tries to protect those she loves!!! Seriously!!
Sorry about that.
On a lighter note, this book is a wonderful sequel to the first, and I love how the characters are getting even more complicated. It just makes me feel alive when I can rant and rave about characters. Tehe.
Read This! You will definitely not be disappointed.
