What happens when happily ever after starts to unravel?
Eliyana Ember doesn’t believe in true love. Not anymore. After defeating her grandfather and saving the Second Reflection, El only trusts what’s right in front of her. The tangible. The real. Not some unexplained Kiss of Infinity she once shared with the ghost of a boy she’s trying to forget. She has more important things to worry about—like becoming queen of the Second Reflection, a role she is so not prepared to fill.
Now that the Verity is intertwined with her soul and Joshua’s finally by her side, El is ready to learn more about her mysterious birth land, the land she now rules. So why does she feel like something—or someone—is missing?
When the thresholds begin to drain and the Callings, those powerful magical gifts, begin to fail, El wonders if her link to Ky Rhyen may have something to do with it. For light and darkness cannot coexist. She needs answers before the Callings disappear altogether. Can El find a way to sever her connection to Ky and save the Reflections—and keep herself from falling for him in the process?
Everyone knows the old saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover”…Yeah, well sometimes it’s hard not to. I’ll admit, the cover alone draws readers in. The book is well written, has a steady pace, and has good characters. The characters are well developed, important to the story, and relatable.
This is my first read by Ella, but I can’t wait to get my hands on her other pieces because this one was simply amazing. I will note that this is book 2 in the series and you would need to read book 1 for a full understanding. This one didn’t standwell on its own. While I was able to read it, I felt like there was back story that I was missing and parts that I didn’t fully understand. Other than that, it was a great read and it definitely put Ella on my favorite author list.
