Here is my review of the first book in this series: Twisted Fate
“Being the new leader of the light fae really puts a dent in your post-grad plans.
Aurora, once a snarky business major, struggles to adjust to fae life—and the diet of human energy that comes with it. A change made worse by the overwhelming ability to feel the emotions of everyone around her, especially when she can barely manage her own.
Agreeing to work with her dark fae counterpart, Tristan, in an attempt to bring peace between their people is a painful reminder of how strong they are together. Even still, Aurora fights the urge to keep her distance. She needs to be sure what she feels for him is real, and not a result of the former light fae leader’s manipulation as a part of his plan to eliminate Tristan.
Aurora thought she’d encountered the worst thing since early morning lectures when she stumbled into the world of the fae. She’s about to find out that they may not be the most twisted creatures out there.”
Aurora: I still love Aurora. In this book she goes through a lot of stuff and even then her sassy self still makes me laugh with her comebacks. I would have like it if a certain event which happened in the first book was having a bit more impact on her than it did, but I really enjoyed her character and the way she was trying to understand and live with the things which happened.
Tristan: Well, we didn’t get to see that much of Tristan in this book as we did in the first in this series. Most of this book Aurora and Tristan spend apart. So can’t really say something about his character development. What I can say is that he makes a decision at the end of the book which makes a big impact on his life and I don’t fully understand all his reasoning.
The pacing of this book wasn’t flawless compared with the Twisted Fate. The beginning and middle were fine, but the last 30% went by too fast for my opinion. A lot happened in those 30% and over a large period of time, in a certain sense. But I still enjoyed what happened, even though it broke my heart, again. There are three sex scene in this, two in the middle and one at the end, but they don’t hold life changing information, so if you still want to read this but don’t like read sex scenes you can skip them.
I wasn’t as captivated with this book as I was with the first installment of this series. That said I still really enjoyed it. There was an amazing angsty romance going on. I did miss the family dynamic I loved from the first book, but we got an amazing character and political stuff in return for it. I do feel that the ending was rushed since a lot happened in the last 30% compared with the first 70%. I still love every character and again there is a death which breaks my heart. The whole time leading up to this death I was like ‘Please don’t die, please don’t die’. And when it happened and everything it was mentions I made notes on my Kindle App saying ‘NOOOOOOOOOO!’ Again, I am very curious to see what will happen in the next installment, certainly since everything seems resolved in my eyes.
