Joclyn is in hiding, hunted by the man she still desperately loves. Ryland is gone, his mind erased; no memory of Joclyn remains, but Joclyn's heart desperately begs her to hold out hope. Meanwhile the black-eyed monster that possesses him attempts to kill her over and over again. If it wasn't for Ilyan, Joclyn would be dead by now.
Ilyan, the man who once stalked her, is now Joclyn's protector, the only person she has left. He protects Joclyn from the men who seek to end her life, and all the while she is haunted by dreams where Ryland begs her to break the bond between them. Ilyan is there. Always there. Ilyan trains and prepares her, teaching her everything she needs to know in the hope that one day she can avenge Ryland, if not protect herself from him. And then there is her father. The man who has never been there is suddenly responsible for everything. And who he is has made Joclyn into something she never wanted to be: The Silnỳ.

The story is much darker and more action - filled but also more enrapturing than the first in this series. The mysteries, betrayal and hopes are fluidly woven and evolving. I could not put it down and am getting book 3 right away. I found the writing to be a bit repetitive at times and didn't like how weak Jocelyn was ok in several parts but I liked watching her grow and unravel more of her life, friends and purpose. The audio narration was well done and the different character voices that helped portray the scenes. A great fantastical YA read but be warned it can be grotesque and dark and has a killer cliffhanger!
This book 2 is amazing. The bond & love that forms between Joclyn and Ilyan is so freaking good.
Absolutely love this series.
