I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Two nightmares. One memory.
“Chaos within destiny. It was the definition of our love.”
Eric has weeks before his final battle when he’s in an accident. Forced to face his human side, he knows he can’t survive if he fights alone. But he doesn’t want to surrender, even if he becomes the sacrifice for war.
Jessica’s memory isn’t the only thing she’s lost. Her desire to find her parents is gone and so is her confidence. But when fate leaves nightmares behind, she decides to find the boy she sees in them, even if it risks her sanity.
Pretty simple and basic. But I’m getting tired of those complex book covers so this one is a nice change.
I probably should have reread the first book but I slowly started remembering more and more as I read. I knew I liked the first book and that it had tons of potential so I was hoping that this one turned out good too.
MY NEW BFF
I was a little disappointed with the whole memory loss stuff with Jessica. I thought she was a great character but it sucked that the first book basically never happened because she couldn’t remember anything. I really liked how she handled it though even though she didn’t freak out as much as a normal person would. That part bothered me a little. But she’s clever, brave, and completely in love which was adorable.
I found this book focused more on Eric so I ended up liking him more than I did in the first book. I was pretty happy we got to see more about his life now that we understand some pieces of it. I was a little disappointed that he stuck so close to the prophecy and didn’t try to fight it thought. I would have liked to see him fight that a little bit instead of just accepting his fate.
I found the characters well developed and the plot face paced. I did have a hard time with the dual personalities though. Each character had two names and I kept getting confused as to who was who. I eventually caught on towards the end of the book but it made it really hard to follow sometimes. I wish that had been done a little differently.
I’m actually really looking forward to the next book. I’m eager to see if my suspicions are right for who Darthon is. I also want to see how they’re going to get around the latest problem at the end of this book. This is turning out to be a really great series and I’d especially recommend it to paranormal fans. It’s not your typical vampires and werewolves either. This is something new and different.
