Even better than Book 1 (review here!) – Read it!
What it’s about…
Lana is neck deep in magic and politics, struggling to learn more about her powerful abilities while dancing to the tune of the Resistance by infiltrating the higher echelons of the Magical Elite. Those hollowed halls of the People’s Palace hold mystery and intrigue, not to mention betrayal, deceit… and her Grandmother, a woman Lana doesn’t remember, and isn’t certain she can trust.
It’s going to take all her skills, plus the skills of her loyal men, to maneuver through the complicated mire Lana’s once Blighted life has suddenly become.
Book two is even better than book one! The carefully crafted world we’ve come to know is brought into clearer focus, revealing the underpinnings between the various classes and the reasons the prejudice lives, and breaths, through their interactions.
The Blighted, who have no magic, lay at the bottom rung of society, pushed to the outskirts by poverty and fear. Just above them are the Touched, those with demon traits, like shape shifters or incubi. Topping the pile, are the Gifted, those with true magic like mages and warlocks. They control the seats of power and designate how this world will function… to the detriment of everyone else.
Not only does this book delve deeper into the political ramifications of such a messed up system, it serves as a study in classes – and what can happen when one group gets too much power. Though this is the overarching theme of the series, it plays out in the background, allowing the characters to shine with their own, personal relationships. It IS a Paranormal RH Romance, after all. There is plenty of action, magic and a fast moving plot that keeps the pages moving.
See my review of Book 1 on the Magic Awakened series here!
- Very well written.
- No editing issues.
- Lana: awesome MC, badass.
- Relationship building, they are growing together.
- Sex scenes: the author knows how to write a scene! Steamy without being crude.
- Wasn’t ready for it to end! 😂
“I’ve seen you fight. You know how to move. Dancing follows the same principles, just with less violence.”
“Yeah, but that’s the fun part,” I muttered.
His face was like an open book in a language I didn’t understand.
A great book that reads well, has just the right amount of steam and carries the series forward. Read it!
