There’s no escaping a curse . . .
The last thing I expect is for my aunt to kidnap, then abandon me. I’m desperate for answers, especially as to the condition of Lochlan D’angelo, my stalker turned protector.
Problem is, I’m still shaken over learning his true identity. I question everything he ever told me, including the realness of the supposed bond between us.
Stuck at a supernatural school in the middle of nowhere, I’m forced to make a decision: stay at the academy where it’s safe, or help the vampires break their curse.
But as a dark foretelling arises and mysteries about my past unfold, all I want to do is escape.
If you read the first book Shadow Touched, you may remember all the reveals and the massive cliffhanger at the end of the story. This book starts with Lochlan still recovering from his fatal wound and in the care of his brothers. Kade may have some news. He only cares about finding McKenna.
Then the book jumps to Kenna. Kenna is at some sort of facility, but she has had a lot of truths thrown at her; however, they may not all be correct. I do not envy her inability to touch her lover. She does know she is the Syphon witch, and she is cursed and supposed to fulfill a prophecy; however, that’s doesn’t change how she feels about Lochlan. She has no idea if he is dead or alive. She finds out she is at a school for supernaturals. Thornecrest Academy is a school for people like her giving her the ability to belong and be normal, not an outsider or defective, or so she thought. However, the vampires are close by, and who is Noah? Apparently, he is Isla’s brother. I think I may need to read that book again as I wasn’t paying much attention to her. Oh, the school houses more than we thought.
This book gets more complicated as it goes but still just as enthralling. This book also gets steamy, and Yay, we get more of Lochlan and Kenna. We also get to know more about Lochlans’ brothers. Oh, trouble seems to be her middle name in this book as she ventures to new places. Okay, every passage of this text makes me love this story even more. Maybe it is the forbidden love or the magical powers or even the fated mates. But I can’t wait to see how this ends. The sweet use of the word soulmate had me swooning. Okay, this book ends with a super-steamy scene and a massive cliffhanger, so be prepared to desire the next book in this series.
Start to finish this book is page-turning; you won’t want to put it down. So many questions, so many emotions, and so much resting on one person. McKenna is a force to be reckoned with; she is so strong, determined, and loves with all her heart. I love Lochlans character going from someone you are not sure about to the one person you are rooting for at the end. Kade is an excellent relief in the story; he brings an interesting outlook and some comedic relief. This vampire romance is a fantastic read you won’t regret, and omg, I can’t wait for book 3 in this series. I want to know what happens to Noah and Isla. This story is terrific; the characters are all intriguing. The author did a fantastic job weaving this tale together to keep you spellbound for the entire series.
This book does hold some similarities to some of my favorite paranormal romance reads. I love the enemies to lovers theme with two types of paranormals breaking all the rules and loving each other even with the forbidden mentalities. I’m also spellbound by the witch and vampire inter-species soul mates or fated mates in the story and, of course, all the magic and supernatural aspects that leave you guessing what will happen next. The curse and the prophecy and all the action and adventure they must overcome to live happily ever after. This book has all the ingredients for a fantastic storyline, and the author is producing it flawlessly. I was surprised, captivated, and enjoyed every page in this read.
