OMG! I just finished this one and it was awesome! I really liked the 1st in this series as well, so I was excited about getting to this one. I don't want to ruin anything for anyone who has not read this one but trust me, you must read the 1st one "Covet" before tackling this one. This one just takes you a bit deeper into this world or should I say war of good vs evil. If you are looking at this series the right way there is no way to be disappointed. I only hope that this series will continue to be another great one from Ms Ward. And now that I have read and loved this 2nd book as well, I'm confident it will only get better. I highly recommend this read.
