There is a world that runs parallel to our own, a world in which the souls of the damned are caged, where they are looked over by the Furies, and where they spend eternity in torment, mirroring the devastation and mayhem they created when alive.
Someone has opened the cage.
The worst of terrors has crossed the barrier that separates our world from theirs, and the Furies send a great, albeit untested warrior—their only son, Alek—to try to bring those souls back. He is young and handsome, headstrong and impulsive, and he won’t be able to do it alone.
Eva has grown up, beautiful and beloved, but surrounded by secrets. First, she will be hunted in an ancient feud that will threaten her life. Then, she will become the hunter.
With the police closing in and two worlds on the verge of crumbling around them, Alek and Eva must find each other, discover the limits of their powers, and work together to save everything they hold dear, including one another. Blending elements of mythology with the dazzling storytelling that her fans have devoured through the House of Nightseries, Kristin Cast weaves a spellbinding and passionate tale that starts a thrilling new series with an explosive charge.
I loved the House of Night Series, and was super excited when I heard about this new series from author Kristin Cast. It was different than I expected. I will admit it took me a bit to get into the storyline, but I was sucked in by 25% of the book.
I found that I really liked the two main characters and the sidekick. Eva and Alek were such a cute mix of characters, yet they longed for each other! It was interesting to read.
As soon as the book hit about fifty percent, I couldn't look away. It was such a good book! When it was over, I was sad. I was so into the story, I didn't want it to end.
I can't wait for the sequel! I hope the author writes fast to bring us an amazing second installment! I'm giving Amber Smoke four glittery stars!
