It’s been a few months since I read the first book in this series and once I started reading it everything began coming back to me. This is such a unique and enjoyable series that anyone that loves a good fantasy read will enjoy. The characters are well developed and very likable, with a magical twist to them.
Amy is apart of a secret magical community called the weeia. When she goes on a girls vacation with her friends Krissa and Lily things don’t exactly go as planned. When Lily doesn’t return to their hotel after a night at the club it’s up to Amy and Krissa to figure out what happened to her. They find help in an unexpected person and commence to retrieve Lily and a cargo ship full of other women from being sold as “slavers.” Will Amy be able to get Lily without getting caught herself?
I liked how this book went to a dark place that most people don’t like to think about, sex slavery. It’s not something that is usually in books so it was cool to see it in this but done in a tasteful way. So it wasn’t too intense to read about because things didn’t go into detail. Kat’s story was dark but it wasn’t too much for me to read, I didn’t feel uncomfortable while reading it which is always a good thing.
I wished there was more Duncan, he was one of my favorite characters in the first book. And Duncan and Amy are too freaking adorable together. I wanted him to be a bigger part of this book but he wasn’t even mentioned until over halfway through. I got worried for a second that he wasn’t going to be in this at all but thankfully he got his part. Amy is a great protagonist, she’s brave, witty, and will do anything for those she cares about. Everything you want in a hero you get in her which is nice to see.
I thought Krissa was a weird character. She gets her ability suddenly out of no where and then while on a wild goose chase to get her friend, she wants food. Really? You’re trying to find your friend that you think could be being sold into sex slavery and you stop for a huge bbq dinner. I know with the abilities they have to eat more it just seemed weird that they wouldn’t have gone through a drive-thru instead of sitting down to eat. I don’t know, I just thought that was an odd scene.
