RATING


Description from SarahAlderson.com :
Fate brought them together. Now it’s threatening to tear them apart.
As the last in a long line of demon slayers, Evie’s destiny is to end the war that has raged for centuries between humans and demons.
Lucas, the half-Shadow Warrior half-human who was sent to kill her, has betrayed his own Brotherhood and his family to fight alongside her.
With an army of demons on their tail, Evie and Lucas are forced into an uneasy alliance with a group of rogue Hunters who offer protection and the promise of answers.
As the past is untangled and the dark history of the Hunters revealed, Evie discovers that severing the realms is going to require a lot more than just fighting. It’s going to require a sacrifice – one that only she can make.
…More than realms will be severed.


MARISSA'S REVIEW:
The sequel to Fated delivers a continuation of action, drama, suspense with some romance and an eye-popping twist thrown in for good measure!  PLUS an ending that shocked me I had to read it twice to make sure it was for real.  (Thanks Sarah....you floored me with that one!)

Evie (the last full blooded Hunter) and Lucas (half Shadow Warrior half Human) are on the run to save themselves and ultimately the world. After surviving the slaughter in Fated they must be cautious who they turn to for help - seems many want Evie out of the picture for good.

With the inclusion of Cyrus and his band of merry wayward hunters, things heat up, pick up and get a little berserk for Lucas and especially Evie. 

Cyrus is a Hunter and his hunter mother is not to be trusted.  Cyrus develops a "thing" for Evie and is quite happy and helpful in leading Lucas away on a fruitless expedition - allowing him some alone time with Evie. But she's not stupid .....there's an extra bond between Evie and Lucas that neither can identify - and it's not just love.

With an army of unhumans about to enter their world and reak havoc on society - the prophecy of the White Light must be found so the opening to both realms can be closed for good - so just exactly what has to be sacrificed for this to happen?

If you haven't read Fated or Severed (books 1 & 2), you are in for a treat.  Not only is it a really enjoyable series....book 3 is out now ..... so what are you waiting for???

ENJOY!
MARISSA
