Nothing is as it seems anymore. Leery from the horrifying incident at the end of her first year at Guilder Boarding School, Rae Kerrigan is determined to learn more about her new tattoo. Her expectations are high, an easy senior year and a happy reunion with Devon, the boy she's not supposed to date. All hopes of happiness turn into shattered dreams the moment she steps back on campus. Lies and secrets are everywhere, and a betrayal cuts Rae deeply. Among her conflicts and enemies, it appears as if her father is reaching out from beyond the grave to ruin her life. With no one to trust, Rae doesn't know where or who to turn to for help. Has her destiny been written? Or will she become the one thing she hates the most - her father's prodigy.

The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. I was to listen to audiobook this as part of The Chronicles of Kerrigan Box Set, Books 1 - 6 but the copy in the box set was missing the last two chapters so the author sent me this individual copy to replace the one in the box set. The review that follows is from my review for the box set.
Wow! I loved this box set. There were so many twists and turns that my head is spinning! It kept me on the edge of my seat and up way too late listening because I just had to have one more chapter before going to bed. Needless to say, I didn't stop at just one chapter.
There are some inconsistencies between books and sometimes even within the same chapter. The narrator's voice is irritating at times. But overall it's a good series, and I can't wait to find out what happens next. I was screaming in my head "NOOOO" at the ending because it leaves you hanging. I can't say more without spoiling it for everyone.
Book 2 is full of surprises and dangers, as to be expected. Rae is more in control of her powers, but still has plenty to learn. The love story continues, but not at a pace that Rae is satisfied with, and even though there are a few racy scenes, there's nothing too graphic for the younger readers. Mollie is still quite the firecracker, but doesn't have quite as big of a roll to play this time, and I really missed her, especially during the entire last part of the book. I'm really hoping she's more of a main character again in the next book as she's my favorite sidekick!
When I discovered Audible it was like discovering love :-) I love receiving codes and in return I post reviews. Wife, and mom of two,
I really love the Chronicles of Kerrigan series. Rae of Hope is the first book and it was great but Dark Nebula is more action, mystery, and intrigue. Author W.J. is extremely gifted and I love every story of her that she's written. May's stories have it all. I would not miss one of her stories, they are great and must add to your collection.
Narrator, Sarah Ann Masse did a fantastic job as she always does. She pulls you in as if you're there as the story unfolds. I personally will set or lay back with my eyes closed and I feel as if I can see the story in my mind. Another perfect 5 star rating!
I am a fun loving mom that enjoys a great Book!! I'm happy to have Audible with a busy life it makes it so easy to still get lost in a book!
I'm still Loving this Series, AMAZING NARRATOR!! Great Story! sometimes I want to SHAKE Devan but who don't want to SHAKE their men sometimes lol!! ALREADY HAVE BOOK 3 & STARTING IT NOW!! THE 1 THING THAT IS BOTHERING ME IS ONE OF MY VERY FAVORITE CHARACTER HAS JUST KIND IF FADED OUT... I MISS MOLLY I HOPE SHE WILL BE BACK IN THE NEXT BOOK!! LOVE HER!
What an amazing story. Can't wait for book 3. Would defiantly recommend this book to everyone. I hope it's a series of 15 books and possible turns into a movie one day. The way the writer speaks it makes me feel like i am there watching it. Also please keep the same narrater she is the best.
