Arianna Grace is about to turn seventeen and her life has been very complicated lately. She is the leader of four clans of night humans: dearg-dul, baku, tengu, and lycan. While the four clans seem to get along better with each other, there is internal conflict on both sides of her family, not to mention the three boys vying for her attention.
Edward Lucan is making a chase for the power to lead the baku clans and is playing his cards by using his nephew Andrew to lure Arianna into a trap. Unfortunately for Lucan, Andrew has his own plans. He has spent the last year waiting for Arianna to see him as more than a friend, and he now finds it necessary to make a move for her affection, despite his uncle.
In the dearg-dul estate, Arianna discovers that the ambitious Lord Seeger has been laying his own strategies for power and is slowly poisoning her. After getting away with her grandfather’s murder, he is setting his sights on her. Luckily for Arianna, her team is on to all of the plans and is making some plans of their own. Will it be enough to keep Arianna safe? Several people close to Arianna have been keeping secrets. If Arianna is to take power and control of the night, she will need to know the truth. Will someone finally tell her what it truly means to become the legend everyone is waiting for, before it is too late to turn back?
I gave this book at 5 out of 5. It is a great follow up to the first one and is a great continuation to the story. The main character really starts to figure her new life and what goes a long with all the power that she has and will have once she is fully grown. I really enjoyed seeing Arianna learn more about herself and her new world as well as the people in it. There is more of a love triangle in this book than the first but its not really you traditional love triangle where she has to chose which is refreshing. Even though she has love for to guys she they make it easy for her to decide between them by not fighting over her and making a lot of drama out of it. I am looking forward to the last book in the trilogy to see what happens to Arianna and the rest of the characters and her world. I have a feeling there is going to be a lot of events that are going to take place.
