I've come to understand that I'll always find her. She's my North Star, my sense of direction. In her I've found my home. She tells me I saved her. But the truth is she saved me.
But nothing good can ever last. Andra's keeping secrets. She's holding something back. I'm trying desperately to anchor her. To let me in, to let me help.
But will all my efforts end up with a ghost of a girl I love?
I'm used to disappearing. Vanishing into thin air, without a trace of who I've been or where I've gone.
But it's so much harder to do with a broken heart and no hope for a happy ending. Sometimes the only people who can put all the pieces of us back together are the ones we least expect to. That's what Julian did for me.
Julian found me. But now, all Six wants is to keep me locked up, away from the world, away from the Monster. I can't live like that. It's not living at all. Because I still have unfinished business.
And I'm going to make sure the Monster gets what's coming to him.

I LOVED that this book had two different narrators for parts if the book, I thought they were both perfect.
This book is a waiting game. You learn more about the characters than you see action. But, the wait is good. Definitely not a whole lot of happy going on. The character's thought process, hopes, fears, FEELINGS are so well portrayed that you just get suckered into the story.
Happy with the way the book ended but, there were a few loose ends, hopefully meaning more to the series!
The twists in the story are killer! I first fell in love with Whitney Barbetti's writing with the prequel to this book. I loved the story so much, I couldn't wait to see what she might come up with for the characters. I was both surprised and impressed by the events in this book. Juliandra! Mira is one of my favorites in the book and I hope to hear her story some day soon.
I have to admit, I was shocked to hear the voice chosen for Julian. I think the performance was incredible, but his voice was wrong. At least to me. It was way too deep and harsh. Not at all what I expected, or how I envisioned Julian's voice. I even laughed out loud when he started talking. I was so surprised. lol. But definitely another awesome audiobook!!
Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.
The only complaint I can possibly have for this book is that it was over so quick. I wanted it to take up days of my life but one day and done it just too short.
I absolutely love this author's ability to write these amazing words like it's nothing. The anchor and the star, so poignant to me. Although this is a romance it is completely tasteful and although there are aspects of abuse and violence, it is not focused on. What is focused on is the strength of Cora. The strength of love. The mystery and suspense was executed perfectly. And although this is a series, you aren't left with these huge cliffhangers that leave you feeling unsatisfied.
Just loved it.
The female narrator is brilliant again in this sequel. I did not care for the male narrator, not enough emotion... Kind of monotone.
