Blake is gone.
He sacrificed himself to save Winter, leaving her alone, unprotected... hunted.
An ancient enemy is rising, but Winter is no longer the innocent girl who was fated to die at Pilgrim's Lament. She will not wait to be saved. She will do what she must to survive, even accept an unsavoury alliance with those who destroyed her love.
In the gathering darkness, the enemy of an enemy is not always a friend, and Winter must find the strength to stand alone and fight for the one she loves. For she is the key to unlocking the secrets beyond the veil of shadows.
And she is Blake's only hope.
My Rating: 4/5
I would like to thank Pan Macmillan Australia for kindly sending me a copy for review.
This book is set three months after Winter's Shadow ends and so it took me a while to get back into Winter's world.
I liked Winter alot more in this book than the first. I like how strong and determined she is and she definitely made up for the fact that Blake is not present in this book.
The other characters were great, I liked how like Winter you weren't sure who you were able to trust. Jasmine was a great inclusion and a really loyal friend for Winter.
The ending was completely not what I expected and so I cannot wait until the third book is published.
