Publisher's Summary

Adam and I are both going through identity crises of epic proportions as we transition from who we were and discover who we were meant to be. More Fae are dying, and I feel as if time is running out for us to find all of those responsible and put an end to the killings.

The people I thought I could trust have betrayed me, and the one person I should absolutely not trust is taking me deeper and deeper into his world.

Ryder’s secrets are dangerous and devastating. 

With each touch and word, he pulls my heart closer to himself, and at the same time, he is trying to keep me at arm’s length. The dance he and I have begun is getting more complicated as our worlds are being shaken from all sides, and the visions of the future are frightening and nothing like I had ever pictured for myself or those I care for.

This time, destiny is taunting me.

I had always thought that I controlled my destiny. Now, my rights are being taken from me by powerful people and leaving me with alternatives that range between bad and awful. This time, the choices I have to make can decide the fate of both worlds.

Everything is unraveling, and nothing will ever be the same again.

Why change the male narrator!

I loved this book and was really excited for the second book to be released in audio I’m really really disappointed that they change the male narrator! Not saying that he did a bad job just that the original male narrator was fantastic! And really made the male character come to life in the story this one just didn’t bring the character to life for me the female narrator did a fantastic job! Still love the book series just disappointed they didn’t stick with the same narrator for the male.

It isn't missing chapters any more. So good!

I see reviews saying there are missing chapters and double of others but I just finished and audible must have fixed it because I got the whole story. I love this series, it just gets better and better!

Chapter 14 Is Missing!!!!!!

I love this story, but Audible needs to fix the recording. Chapter 14 is completely missing and I can't be the only one who has noticed. I had the digital copy, so I realized immediately, but if someone doesn't, they could miss a big chunk of the plot. Come on Audible!!!!! Fix this!

What happened to chapter 14?!

Missing chapter 14. Weird. But of course the story itself is addicting. I was just completely thrown off when I noticed the storyline go in a different direction. As it turns out, there are 2 chapter 15’s and no chapter 14.

About time

I have waited a year for this Audiobook! I love the series! The banter between the characters is priceless! Sarrah's narration was spot on as always. The male voice was disappointing, though . .You will enjoy the Audible regardless. Thank you for this book. Can't wait for the next Audible in the series!

Ugh. She’s such a doormat

I both love and hate this series. The world building, plot twists and steamy sex scenes are addicting!! But I absolutely HATE what a doormat the FL is!! She’s supposed to be such a badass but she’s a total doormat. She’s constantly treated like shit, belittled and betrayed but within a few minutes it’s all “oh but I want him, need him, love him. And all the misogynistic pet names and comments from all the male leads just continue and then somehow she’s friends with them and “cares about them.” What a doormat. I kept reading hoping they’d all get their comeupins but it NEVER happens. I’m so angry for the FL at the end of this book!!!

I Love This Series

I am addicted to this series. I just love everything about it. However, the new voice for Ryder just takes away from the excitement. Its if his voice isn't the powerful, arrogant, heart-throb that we got in book 1. But it doesn't take away from the story.

Constantly surprising storyline

Story: Continue the story with Ryder and Syn. If you liked the first book, you'll like this second book. The story in this book tosses the readers through many twists and turns as everything gets turned around multiple times and it is near impossible to guess where the story is heading. Ends on a cliff hanger, so be sure that you have credits to get the next book too! ;-)

Narrators: Sarah Puckett continues her expert and professionally done voice for the female parts. I just wish she would do the entire book. Craig A. Hart replaced the previous male narrator used for Ryder in book 1. Thankfully he didn't have a lot of sections since they were not recorded with the same quality and professionalism. This brought the performance down.

First one is better

I bought this because I liked the first one. This one makes the main women sound so pathetic. She says she won't do xyz and then does xyz. I felt it was very rambly and talked in circles almost to fill pages. I listen on 2x speed so it's already over 4 hours shorter to listen to and I'm finding it very boring where most books don't have that issue. I will not be getting the third one or any that follow as this book has put me off the storyline and the plot in general - I no longer want to find out the outcome because I don't care

Good book

I really enjoyed the story but sometimes found Cynthia irritating. Maybe it was how the narrator portrayed her but she was childisg and wanted faerie to understand her but wouldn't do the same. I found her self centered which was irritating. In saying that i have really enjoyed the story, its engaging and makes you want to see what is gonna happen next.

4 stars only because the main character was a little frustrating.

Taunting Destiny

This book is edgy and very dark, it is still sexy and all the feels a good dark romance book should be. I really enjoyed it!

Can't wait till next one

Can't wait till next one hopefully won't have to wait another 12 months. Would have given it a full 5 stars if it hadn't been missing a whole chapter and it ruined it alil bit using a different male voice. But still an awesome listen
