The sequel to Escape the Sea is electrifying. Just like in the previous one, there is a lot of action, adventure and some secrets being revealed. The trend of polygamous relationship between the characters is confirmed in this book. This book is also very curtoo.

Cassandra should have been killed at birth, like all the other children who have powers like her. The changed ones. The ones who started the war, lost the seas, and killed millions with their gifts. Lucky for Cassandra, her father is on the council. One of the seven rulers of her large town and has kept her hidden her entire life. When she is seen for the first time, she has no choice but to run, and the only place she can go is to the sea.

This book surprised me.
The story is adorable, creative and full of adventures. The only problem is that the story is too short ... it ends too fast! Another problem in my view is that the story points to the direction of a polygamous relationship between the characters. This seems to be a trend, since in other series I also came across this fact.

This book is difficult to analyze ... At first I did not like the book. I regret buying. The story is boring, the main character is annoying, insecure, spoiled ... horrible. Toavia after half of the book, the story begins to have new directions and gets a little better, becomes more interesting, coming back to capture my attention. I do not know if this is a book I would recommend. Still
Among all the books in the series, ese is one of the least attracted to me, even if it has a context regarding the series.
He thinks that another disadvantageous factor for the book is the narrative. I did not like the way the book is being narrated, emphasizing the insecure character character of the female character and the male character's comedian.

The story is beautiful, enthralling and engaging. It is an extensive book, with a slow but very detailed narrative, which allows the listener to appreciate every moment experienced by the personagnes, each emotion, each sensation. As in the other books, we have in this two women of strong personality, which helps to enrich the plot, especially when Amber is taken back by the brooch.
It's a lovely novel, which comes to complement the series.

Well, I'm suspected to speak because I love this author, so listening another book that offers a continuity for the series All Souls is an early Christmas gift.
The book is really very good, It's very well written, the narrative is excellent. The author brought back Mathew and Diana, but places Marcus and Phoebe in the center. . Without losing focus, we know Marcus's past in a subtle way while we are introduced to Mathew and Diana's dilemmas in raising children.
It's a great book that ends very quickly.

I was disappointed with this book. After a fantastic sequence, the author presents this story without grace, sombia and with embittered personages, haunted by the past.
After understanding the point of view of the story, I can say I did not like it at all. I think it could have been presented differently.

There is not much to comment on this book because I found the story very boring in the first chapters and I only listened to the end because I am unable to abandon a book in half ... Again we have the issue of polygamous relationships comes to the fore, and seem to do central part of the plot. Leaving aside this fact, I found the plot poor, uncreative...

My new life at Otherworld Academy went from not-so-normal to downright-crazy fast. My best friend got turned into a shapeshifting beast, the Autumn Court tried to launch an assassination on the changelings, and I can somehow tap into the powers of all four courts. And that's not including my insanely attractive fae instructors who make me feel like the temperature has gone up a thousand degrees. But even though things were crazy before, it was nothing on how they are now. Danger lurks in every corner, new threats are closing in, and the storms are only growing larger.

The second book in the series is good, but the first book is better. This book despite being a continuation of the story, is focused on the House of Imperial and the conflicts of the central characters.
It's good to read the book to keep up with how the story will unfold, but it's not the kind of book I would recommend as a reading option.
I really hope the third book will be better.
