Born an Arcadian, but raised as an exile among the Druids, Arryn has trained hard her whole life to bring justice to the man who destroyed her life. The problem? Some girl from the Boulevard beat her to it.... With Adrien dead, and his ashes scattered to the wind, Arryn can finally return to the city she once called home to learn the truth about her family. But powerful forces work in the shadows, carrying on Adrien's evil vision, and threatening to draw Arcadia back into the darkness. Arryn might just get to fulfill that vow for vengeance after all....

So this is a good story and I loved the druid. But the first half of this book just kept hitting the breaks for me as the new main villain, is exactly the type of manipulative twisted personality that gets under my skin and drives me nuts. I just hated her so much and wanted to get back to the main girl and her journey. But I guess that just shows how well it is written when the villain can bring out that much real distain from me that I can’t wait to see her get her just desserts.
Now I listened to the audio book for this, and while the narrator did a good job, she tries to do voices for all the characters but fails to do more then a few distinct variety of voices and it can get confusing who is talking when they sound the same. But she’s not bad and that was my only complaint so I’ll give her an average of 3 out of 5 stars.
