Some things lie beneath the surface.
With the power to change everything.
Joy Malone wants it all—power, freedom and the boyfriend who loves her. Yet when an unstoppable assassin is hired to kill her, Joy learns that being the girl with the Sight comes with a price that might be too high to pay. Love will be tested, lives will be threatened, and everyone Joy knows and cares about will be affected by her decision to stand by Ink or to leave the Twixt forever.
Her choice is balanced on a scalpel's edge and the consequences will be more life-altering than anyone can guess.
I didn’t love this one quite as much as the first book. I still really liked it, but there were some slow bits in the beginning. And while I totally understand why Joy did that one thing, I still wanted to hit her over the head with something.
I also need to take a moment and squee! (without spoilers!) because I totally knew something was going to happen eventually! And it DID! And I didn’t know how it was going to happen or when, but finally? *laughs*
We get to see more of Filly in this book, as well as Kestrel and a little bit of the Cabana Boys.
I love how Joy and Ink are together. How their relationship always seems to be evolving and growing. There were a number of sweet moments, as well as a few painful ones.
Joy’s brother Stef was another character I loved! His surprises made a lot of sense once they came to light. And I can hardly wait to see his reaction to the stuff Joy hasn’t told him yet.
All the old characters we knew and liked from the first book are back. And their stories are fleshed out more. Monica and her boyfriend have couple issues and Joy tries to help Monica. We get to meet Monica’s parents, and the Twixt gets a little darker and more dangerous for Joy.
I can’t think of anything else to say without major spoilers. So pretty much if you haven’t read this series yet, you need to!
