Amanda: well you are just going to have to read and find out.
Idonea: *smirks like a fool*
I: I liked this book as much I liked the first. I read it in one breath, oke it was short so maybe a half a breath. Still liked it, being short doesn’t make this book any less.
A: This was a good second book and brought in so much. While it was still short, like Idonea said, I still understand that there are like 13 more books coming out in this series.
Accacia, unlike the first book begins to grow and become braver and isn’t as afraid, as in the first book. It is a natural growth, the fact that she can say, ok this is happening to me, lets deal with it and she where it goes. Shows a great strength. And shows that the writer knows about a thing or two in life.
A: I like Devin a whole lot and missed him in this book, but with the ending I’m excited to see more of him.
I: I think the books all focus more on one of the brothers then all three. Which is great, you get to know them even better, then when you have a few chapters each.
A: While Ezra was the main male focus in this book, I still found him to be self righteous and never found myself liking him.
I: And that is something I don’t agree with. I like that he is like that. Not the character that asks how high when the main character asks them to jump. He has a real reason to be an asshole, I would be the same…
A: I also didn’t like how the book ended and I didn’t like the choices that Accacia made. I felt like she picked wrong and wanted to smack her and tell her so.
I: Why would you want to do that Amanda. She made a choice, choosing for the one who needed it the most. That isn’t a flaw to her as a character, it shows that she cares for them in different ways.
A: Maybe, still the guys are each complex though Rhain and Devin seemed more like secondary characters not ever really about Accacia’s intimate group. They were pushed to the back like no name guards. I really thought that there would get to be more between Accacia and Rhain from the way the book started out, but I was kicked out of that fantasy.
I: I get what you are saying, and I would have liked more of them together too, all three or more one on one or maybe two and one. Doesn’t really matter. This story told more about Accacia and Ezra, which I find really important for the story line. That is how it made me feel. I missed Devin though, he is the big guy with a really good heart. I’m looking forward to the third book. And I can live with the fact that the books seem to single out one guy more than the other, and places them to the background. As long as they are happy, I’m happy. *and no that doesn’t sound really cheesy*
