Summary: The shadows have risen, and the line is law.

All Bree wanted was to uncover the truth behind her mother’s death. So she infiltrated the Legendborn Order, a secret society descended from King Arthur’s knights—only to discover her own ancestral power. Now, Bree has become someone new:

A Medium. A Bloodcrafter. A Scion.

But the ancient war between demons and the Order is rising to a deadly peak. And Nick, the Legendborn boy Bree fell in love with, has been kidnapped.

Bree wants to fight, but the Regents who rule the Order won’t let her. To them, she is an unknown girl with unheard-of power, and as the living anchor for the spell that preserves the Legendborn cycle, she must be protected.

When the Regents reveal they will do whatever it takes to hide the war, Bree and her friends must go on the run to rescue Nick themselves. But enemies are everywhere, Bree’s powers are unpredictable and dangerous, and she can’t escape her growing attraction to Selwyn, the mage sworn to protect Nick until death.

If Bree has any hope of saving herself and the people she loves, she must learn to control her powers from the ancestors who wielded them first—without losing herself in the process.

If I thought the original book was good, and wonderful, and everything exciting and new about the fantasy genre than I was wrong because this book, the sequel definitely tops that one.

Tracy Deonn is amazing. Seriously completely wonderful and amazing, and truly good at weaving a story that will grip you, and keep you in its grip until you find yourself flipping through the pages quicker and quicker until I was at the end and was ready to cry because it is over.

The beauty in this book is how each person has their own power and the way it is presented in the books through their actions, their magic and their reactions to the situations they find themselves in.

The action in this book is always compelling and it kept me interested with each turn of the page.

The new characters are interesting and sometimes sinister, but always complex and sometimes not what they seem.

I honestly think this is one of the most well-written fantasy novels I’ve read in a very long time and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
