Publisher's Summary

"Maybe I was stupid to have agreed to this, but when all of the options that you have in life are dangerous ones, you can only choose to do something reckless, or turn a blind eye, and allow the cards to fall as they may...and I was sick of being blind."

Seraph Black has endured a vicious stalker, a change of schools, a bonding, a triple-murder, and more than her fair share of uncomfortable situations - but it seems like the world isn't done with her yet. The messenger is back with a systematic vengeance that knocks her flat, and not even her self-proclaimed secret-keepers are prepared for how far he is willing to go to get what he wants.

She is walking on eggshells, trying to keep everyone at a distance. Especially those that are closest to her. Unfortunately, there is one person who keeps slipping through the cracks: Silas Quillan, the gift in her life that keeps on taking. Every time she turns around, he's taking something else from her: her choices, her privacy, her freedom, her sanity...and if she's not careful, the next victim might just be her heart.

Warning: While this audiobook is intended for a young adult audience, it is not recommended for persons younger than 15 years, due to some disturbing themes.

Interesting, but needed a little more editing

Book 2 of the series continues directly from Book 1, Charcoal Tears. It’s interesting, but wish Jane’s writing group or Editor helped more in smoothing out disconnects.
Example #1: Book 1, the messenger painted a smiley face on her naked stomach. Book 2, the messenger sees her naked after the accident. Wouldn’t he have seen her double birth mark when he first painted her?
Example #2: If her “father” Gerald sexually abused her when she was younger, wouldn’t she have picked on the possible sexual nuances of 1 pair, let alone 2? Virgin does Not equal stupid.
Schroeder does a decent job of narration.

An interesting sequel

I did not think the sequel lived up to the power of the first book . It did however, have some interesting twists and turns that were unexpected so it is worth reading. It ends in a cliffhanger.

Okay storyline boring characters

I’ve read a lot of fantasy romance books and I feel like I’m relatively easy to please. I normally give most books 5 stars. However, this book just didn’t do it for me? I can’t stand the main character. She’s so infuriating. And the guys are just not developed and nothing really happens. I like the idea of the book but it just wasn’t working for me. I don’t even want to read the next book but my ocd will not let me leave a series unfinished.

A seductive read!

The stalker is back...
With a vengeance...
And nobody is prepared for how far he is willing to go to get what he wants...

Holy hell! Once I picked up this sequel, I couldn't stop reading until I was finished. Such an all-consuming, seductive, dark and thrilling read!

I simply cannot get enough of this series nor can I express my love for this series enough. It is just not possible to describe how hard I have fallen for this series. So damn captivating!

Full of mystery, stalkers, suspense, allure, danger, secrets, lies and attraction.

Perfect for readers of urban fantasy romance/reverse harem.

I really enjoyed listening to these characters. I enjoyed them being brought to life.

Loved this book!

This book was amazing!! So much has happened! Let's start with Seraph, this girl has gone through so much! And things keep slamming her down through the whole book. Through the whole book I felt so bad for her and angry in her behalf! She gets no breaks, she jumps from one problem to another and she has no idea whom to trust, and I don't blame her!! I don't trust anyone anymore either.

Silas: I feel bad for him too, he's one of the other characters that I felt pity for. His dad is some messed up psychopath and in turn has caused Silas to be a bit unstable.....but dang that ending!!

As for the other three ....*sigh* I don't know I just feel disappointment!! Cause they are constantly hurting Seraph!!! Like why!?? And I felt like overall all the guys with the exception of Silas, was really stupid. They didn't try hard enough!! And lemme just mention again how much those particular three hurt Seraph!!!

On a positive note! I love poison an Clarice! Seraph needs friends...or at least some people somewhat stable in her life? And she at least got that From them!


Anyway great book!! Idk if I have the patience to wait for the next one to be released on audible!


Cheers!

The narrator is pretty bad the story is fantastic

You get used to the narrator and lose yourself in the amazing world of Zev.

A great story with a fantastic narrator

I absolutely adore this series and was very excited when the books started coming out in audiobook format.

The narrator has a very unusual voice and accent to me, and I must admit I loved the narrators voice. She read fluidly, in a fantastic tone of voice with expression and personality. Her voices when other characters were talking was also excellent.

The quality of the recording is very good, I could not hear any other noises a great background

The story is book two in the serirysnd the excitement and drama continues as Seraph tries to navigate her way through her new life with her pairs, she still has no clue really what is going on and seems to be under threat from so many corners

Well written and fantastic to boot, I highly recommend

Watercolor Smile

Have loved the first and second book in this series. Hoping the next books will soon be done in audio.

I should of check first to see if the whole series was done in audio books before I started.

Think I'll have to read the rest of the series.
