Favorite Line: “Thin white welts covered his body from knee to chest, and down his arms.” (p. 152)
Wren and Sergei are back! Wren is being sent to Italy on a mission; a mission with incomplete information. She has no idea what she is getting involved with and even if she did, it wouldn’t matter. She has a contract with Silence and she means to keep it. While she’s at it, she plans to change her relationship with Sergei.
I waited all the way through book one to see a romantic relationship evolve between Sergei and Wren. The most I got was a kiss the two shared. This book takes a bigger step and throws the two friends together in a sexual relationship. It was inevitable and predictable and I wanted it to happen in a bad way.
The relationships surrounding the partners are still volatile, but that’s nothing new. A war is brewing and Wren will be right in the middle. We get to meet new friends and old enemies. My biggest peev with the book is the obvious set up for book three.
Many different ideas are broached, then the reader is ripped away and thrown back into the main story line. As usual I understand the purpose of this technique, but it is irritating all the same.This book moved at a quicker pace than book one, too. All in all it was an interesting story.
