When Calla Tor wakes up in the lair of the Searchers, she's certain her days are numbered. Then the Searchers make her an offer, one that gives her the chance to destroy her former masters and save the boy she left behind. Calla must decide which battles are worth fighting and how many trials love can endure.
Unfortunately I couldn’t read this book as fast as I wished because I was in the middle of a move, but trust me when I say that this is the only reason why I had to put it down so many times. The book is so involving that all you wanna do is keep reading!
As I wrote in my review for Nightshade, every character is well developed and interesting, but sometimes I felt lost with some of their reactions in this book . . . A few unexpected events happened and someone seemed not to react as he/she should have. Of course, this could be because there’s still lots of mystery around so many things that we can’t see everything clearly yet, I was really expecting a different reaction by someone when something shocking was revealed . . . Mostly from Calla, I thought her mind was elsewhere and she was completely astounded. Also, I really wanted to read more about Ren, but since the dynamic of the story I understand his almost complete absence here. I mean, it’s justified because we already know different things about Werewolves and Keepers but not so much about Searchers and this second book is all about them, or at least the biggest part. We knew their real place and role in the story and Gosh if it’s intriguing! Maybe there were a couple of predictable things, at least for me, but that didn’t make them less interesting.
At some point something has broke my heart, but that final scene . . . I’m dying to read about! The beginning of Bloodrose seems to be amazing, and I truly hope it’s just a taste of another great book of a beautiful series.
