Holy Cannoli! Scarlett St. Clair has produced another masterpiece. I thoroughly enjoyed this read, following the same characters that we fell in love with in the first book.

This story really tugged at my heart strings. The depth of friendship between Persephone and Lexa made me clutch the book a little tighter as they struggle through some pretty real, yet magical truths in their lives.

The only reason I couldn't give this book a five star, was for two reasons. Persephone happens to be even more annoying and childish than the first book and the sexual tension just wasn't there. This is pretty typical for second books in a steamy series since there's nothing standing in the way of those good old sex scenes.

If Persephone would stop whining like a baby, doing everything she knows not to do, then I would love this series even more. I have a feeling that will never happen. I'm still so invested in this story though and can't wait to read the next book.
