Summary from Goodreads:

After narrowly escaping death at the hands of the Dames Blanches, Lou, Reid, Coco, and Ansel are on the run from coven, kingdom, and church—fugitives with nowhere to hide.

To elude the scores of witches and throngs of chasseurs at their heels, Lou and Reid need allies. Strong ones. But protection comes at a price, and the group is forced to embark on separate quests to build their forces. As Lou and Reid try to close the widening rift between them, the dastardly Morgane baits them in a lethal game of cat and mouse that threatens to destroy something worth more than any coven.


Add on Goodreads


This book picks up where the first book left off. We are following Lou, Reid and their friends as they escape from those who hunt them. They know they need allies if they want to have a chance to survive, but no one wants to ally themselves with the daughter of La Dame des Sorcières and her ex-Chaussers husband. If that wasn't bad enough, Lau and Reid are fighting their inner demons, ones that threaten to tear them apart. 

I gave this book a three star rating. It was really hard for me to get into the story and it seemed like they were just traveling along their journey, but there was nothing solid to bet on. Nothing that was engrained in my thoughts as a wonderful place. In fact, I wasn't able to envision the story in my head as I usually do. 

The love between Lou and Reid is still in the forefront, but with new challenges. This dynamic almost saved the story for me. If there is a third book, not sure if I would read it.
