My Musings :

I received a free copy for an honest review. This in no way impacts my thoughts on the book.

This was a much awaited sequel and I have to say that the author didn't disappoint. And now I can't wait for the next book! This is one series I love.

The book takes off from where it ended in the first book. The mysterious disappearance of Hope which was left as a cliffhanger previously is focused on in this book. Though this series has been tagged as fantasy, I would say that it is more of a paranormal mystery. The reason is that Crystal's focus is always on solving a mystery in each book.

This book sees Crystal grow in her paranormal powers and also in her personal life. Romance wise, I was surprised with the introduction of a new love rather than pairing with Derek though Emma likes him too. Another point which came across as a surprise was Emma also developing her powers. It was logical but still it didn't gel for me.

Plot-wise, it was rather a unsurprising read. But the writing style and the interaction between the characters was real and involved. The pace was also steady throughout the book and it was a very fun read! I can totally see myself reading the entire series multiple times in the future.

My rating : 5/5
