So this review is really going to test my unbiased opinion. Was this book amazing? Yes! Was it the same incredible story from Sterling? Yes! Am I absolutely beside myself and ecstatic to start book three. HECK YEAH!!! Did the story play out just like I wanted? NO:( I am going to jump right out there on that limb and tell you my opinion then we will get the facts, and how great this author and her books really are. I am a Justus lover! There it is my big secret, and my major disappointment for book two. I was constantly struggling with myself, because Dannika is such an incredible author that she will make you fall in love with anyone. So when I am faced with my deep seeded love for Justus, and she offers me Logan this makes my heart hurt.
Throughout this second book Silver is not your unfortunate bystander, and it seems she is beginning to spread her wings. Although, those wings seem to be getting her in a heap of trouble; all the same they are spreading. I like seeing her fall into the lifestyle more completely in this book. We are no longer fighting fate, but rather embracing it. There are a abundance of new characters and past acquaintances that we begin to learn more deeply, and I am loving how it is shaping our journey.
As for the many unresolved relationships that we encountered in book one. Finally, it appears that we are going to lay the Adam scenario to rest, and I think it was perfect timing. I hope this allows us to see their relationship grow with out the under lying conditions. As for Simon, I still don't know what to think about him. It is obvious that he loves her, but I also think it is not the love that is going to bring romance. Lastly, we are faced with Justus. This is another big I DON'T KNOW, but with a lot more aggravation and frustration. There is something hidden for him behind the cool exterior, and I can wait for the book that allows us to delve right into his hidden personality.
This is the mark of a great author. One that can create an incredible story along with an intensity that will leave readers craving more. Silver's story is a complex one that continues to grow and shape. As the plot has thickened so has the masterminds plan that landed Silver in this world of mystery. This book was incredible with the same action packed friction that I loved in book one, and the heart stopping suspense keeping me on the edge of my seat. I love Dannika Dark's writing and tone. She is just the right mixture of action and romance!! These kinds of reads make the absolute best books, and I just can't seem to get enough. She is an incredible addition to wonderful authors, and a new BookWhisperer Favorite. I can not wait to see what is to come!
