BookWhisperer's Rating: 

Sometimes, the rabbit hole is deeper than expected . . .

Alice Reeve and Finn Van Brunt have tumbled into a life of secrets. Some secrets they share, such as their employment by the clandestine organization known as The Collectors’ Society. Other secrets they carry within them, fighting to keep buried the things that could change everything they think they know.

On the hunt for an elusive villain who is hell-bent on destroying legacies, Alice, Finn, and the rest of the Society are desperate to unravel the mysteries surrounding them. But the farther they spiral down this rabbit hole, the deeper they fall into secrets that will test their loyalties and pit them against enemies both new and old.

Secrets, they come to find, can reveal the deadliest of truths.


I had the release day countdown ticking in my head until I could get my hands on this book – that is how amazing that I knew this story was going to be.  And, it did not fail me.

It blows my mind how well Lyons can take all these childhood favorites of mine, twist and turn them into either characters that I love or despise and then build the most creative world around them.  I cannot tell you how wonderful the first book was and the second book is just as amazing.  The situations that Lyons puts these characters in are intense, thoughtful, dangerous, loving, and all around kick butt. 

I would have to say that the most beautiful part about this series (of course, besides the wonderful world the Lyons created) is the love between Alice and Finn and the heart-breaking separation between Alice and the White King.  My heart is still fluttering from the amount of love in this book and the dedication each one shows to the other.

It is also still skipping beats from all of the intense action in this book.  For me, it feels like Lyons has planned out this wonderful series to the absolute best.  No part is dull. There was not a time where I skimmed or skipped. I soaked up all of Alice and Finn’s world into my core and lived everything with them.  Their world was my world and I can’t wait to get back to it. I will have to start another release day countdown in my head until the third book in this series is released. 

Again, this world is brilliantly thought out and brought to life with Lyon’s amazing mind and writing skills. Please give this series a try because I highly doubt that you will have no other feeling than love for it.
