As the magical holiday season is disrupted with an afternoon of horror, it becomes apparent that the Legions have begun their uprising around the globe, and Ana does her best to stay strong even though her world has been shattered. It is up to Ana to find the strength within and not fall prey to the dark side as she begins her chase to reclaim what’s rightfully hers.
Realizing that Ana’s visions alone are not enough to protect them, her family begins her training immediately before she is targeted once more. The Legions will not quit until they get what they want, and they have made it clear that mortals will not be spared, leaving Ana little time to figure out what it is the demons are after.
As Ana balances her time between chasing after her destiny and spending her time relearning how to fight demons, she learns something about her past that could change why she’s fighting for anything at all. Clues continue to unfold in the form of yellowed letters she finds from Athen buried within an old Tudor home; and her future is signaled in a lone, white rose left for only her to see giving her the strength to persevere. She is determined to not give up faith that she will have it all once more.
This is going to be a short review for me. Even though I enjoyed the book, I enjoyed the first one in the series much more. Awakening seemed to have a bit more romance, which I crave in my stories.
The book starts off where Awakening has left the reader with Athen being taken and Ana trying to come to terms that it may take a long time to get him back. She is really tormented with the “I should have” feelings and wishes that she had done things differently. She feels that this is all her fault.
The other members of the family try to keep Ana moving and on the straight and narrow. I still love Arie, I think she will be my favorite through the whole series. Beside Matilda of course! Matilda was not mentioned much in this book, she had taken up residency with Athen, but she remains the same aloof critter she always was.
The book ended on a good note. This story was packed with many twists and turns but the author had tied them up for us.
I can’t wait to read the last book in this series. There was minimal romance in this installment, but plenty of action and drama! I can’t help it that I like the mooshy gooshy stuff???
