After I finished the Asylum, I could not wait to start this one! I may have actually started it at like 2 in the morning (when I of course had to work the next morning) because I had to know what happens! As with the way the second book started, this one picked up right where the last one ended. With Evangeline finally realizing that she really cant trust anyone, and after 18 years of not having friends to talk to she starts to alienate the ones she finally does have because she has so many secrets that she cant share. In this book we learn a lot more about Sofie, and Mortimer also shows us a much softer side as well. Sofie no longer hides her maternal feelings for Evangeline, but its because of those feelings that Evangeline can not confide in her anymore. Cadan was slightly annoying in the book, I mean yea sure Evangeline was stranded with Julian for a few months alone, and they bonded… but he has no right to feel betrayed or be mad at her IF anything had happened between them because well he has lived for hundreds of years… and when he first met Evangeline she had to watch him get pawed all other by Rachel. However, regardless of Cadan’s jealousy, I loved that Julian and Amelie clicked, they are just so cute (when Amelie isn’t trying to bash the maids head in for smiling at him) and I feel so bad for Julian because of the secret he is keeping from her. As I said earlier, Evangeline has finally found her backbone, and although she is still a scared naïve teenager, I love how much she has grown into herself, she doesn’t just stand by anymore, she takes charge. I am also very curious about how her relationship with Lily with play out! But the part that I liked the most was when Sofie was summoned by the fates, Sofie had a choice to make and for once I think she had it right, however the fates are fickle, and they already had a plan in place which was evident at the end of the book when the fates once again intervene. This is the third book in the series, and I absolutely LOVE this series! I wish this was the final book, but its not… the final book is expected hopefully by the summer of 2013. So if you have not read this series yet, you have tons of time to get them and start reading them all!
