Publisher's Summary

Lost in despair, Alexis teeters on the edge of an abyss, her lifeline of hope fraying into a thin thread. If it snaps, she'll plunge into complete darkness. With the help of her son and her writing, she's been able to hold on. Until now. Erratic impulses, disturbing delusions and her own demonic blood threaten her sanity. When she's forced to choose between hanging onto hope or letting go to serve her Amadis purposes, she faces a decision with inconceivable sacrifices.

Alexis runs to the one place she thinks will provide answers, only to find herself at the center of another battle of good versus evil, not only with the Daemoni, not only within herself...but also against the worst opponent imaginable. But even if she wins, what will she lose?

good read, but not as good as the first

I really enjoyed book 1 of the series and really looked forward to this 2nd book. However, I found a good portion of it unnecessarily wordy. Halfway through and towards the end, I kept wondering: how many ways will one sentence or emotion be spun on and on! It seems several paragraphs were used to describe what half a sentence would usually do. I actually got annoyed and irritated a few times. Towards the end, I just wanted it to finish.
However, it is still a good book, while not as enchanting as the first one.

LOVED IT!! it was better than the first.

Would you listen to Purpose again? Why?

The romance, the supernatural, the mystery pulls me in and im loving this story. I listened to this 11hr book in a day and night :)

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tristen duh ;)

Have you listened to any of Erin Mallon’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I wasn't a fan of her in the first book because she made Alexis sound whiney and baby like. She did a better job in this book.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Their love took them all by surprise.

Any additional comments?

I just purchased the next book hopefully I will get some sleep soon lol
