Book 2 (Book 1: Infinite Days)
A new year is beginning at Wickham Boarding School. A new chance at life, at reversing the evil in my past. But nothing is ever as simple it seems… Last year, the love of my life died performing a ritual to fulfill my one wish and make me human. And now I’ve performed the same ritual for my friend Vicken – and survived. Why am I here, back safe on Wickham campus? The strong magic I used in the ritual did more than just make Vicken human. It drew someone to Lover’s Bay who does not belong here. She wants the ritual. Then she wants me dead. And she will take down any and everyone in my life to get what she wants. As if that weren’t enough, the ritual has also summoned the anger of the Aeris, the four elements and most fundamental powers on earth. They have a surprise and an unbearable punishment for me – like stepping into the sun for the first time, only to be put into a cage. And now I have to make an impossible choice – between love or life, yearning or having, present or past…
I had a lot of hope for this book after enjoying the first book so much but I was a little disappointed. We are once again immersed into the world of vampires and Lenah adjusting once more to being human again. Also, we are introduced to some more supernatural beings and we are told of more supernaturals in the world but besides the beginning introduction of the Aeris, the supernaturals don’t play a very big role. The mentioning of other supernaturals had a lot of promise but since they didn’t make an appearance I was a bit disappointed. The story was mainly about Lenah dealing with a new enemy and was her unyielding feelings for Rhode and when I mean mainly it was essentially all there was to the story. The new enemy seems like a replica of vampire Lenah, complete with her own coven of males. Besides the main female, the others in her Coven aren’t mentioned which was a bit disappointing since knowing more vampires and the vampire world was really interesting. It was similar to the first book in that Lenah’s Coven wasn’t very detailed besides Vicken. Justin was really sweet in the first book and I liked him a lot then but in this book he was different and virtually non existent. This was disappointing since besides talking about love, there was no love in the book. I would say that I liked human Vicken, he was funny at times, but we didn’t get to see him being human which I would have liked to see. Rhode is also in the book but besides just talking about him he didn’t do much. Overall, for something with potential the book is just okay. I wanted more Justin, more Rhode, more romance, human Vicken, less Lenah moping and less of Lenah being weak when she shouldn’t have been.
