I liked we got so much more about Cherise. She finally felt like a fully realized character to me. Before she was always just the overly protective mom. I always felt like she liked making him friendless and outcast. I actually never really liked her very much. It's nice to finally have better context to her motivations and reasons. I'm still not crazy about her, but at least now she's more understandable.
We also get to know more about Adarian. His story was less surprising, but still had some great reveals. His choices definitely make more sense when you get more of his back story.
We get more from Kody as well. Which when this series started I would not have been happy about. But as the series goes on I like her more and more. Even though in this one their relationship gets a little rocky.
Acheron makes an appearance. I don't want to spoil it, but it was good.
Nick's story was still interesting but he really wasn't the star of this one as much as the others. Still a great continuation of the storyline. The ending though was not appreciated. I'm not a fan of cliff hangers. I take a whole star off for cliffhangers I despise them so much. Otherwise this book would have gotten 5 stars.
