from the back cover
From the back cover...Emma’s world is falling apart, and Kade, the only one who seems to hold her together, is missing. With death lingering right outside their door, decisions must be made before it’s too late.
The Midway has refused to send help, so they are left to seek out the only other who can stop Lucian.
A perilous quest sends Emma and a few Guardians into the Underworld, where the unimaginable abide, to beseech the Prince of Darkness himself. Lucifer.
Now, they must endure the deadly levels of Hell, which not one …mortal or immortal… has ever survived.
Prepare for love, loss, and the unexpected.
I think that these books get better with each installment! There were plot points in the first that I wasn’t crazy about, but as the books progress the more those points are developed and the more sense they make.
The main character, Emma, has grown a lot from the first book and that really has helped me like her a whole lot more. I think the fact that Kade and she were seperated for much of this book also helped her be her own person as a character.
There is a lot more action this time and that really made the book for me. Instead of the romance, other relationships were at the forefront of the emotional side of the story and I liked that switch in focus. There were a lot of unexpected moments in this story, with some twists and turns that I didn’t see coming.
The story is really getting good in this book, but I recommend reading Hidden Wings and the novella Descent first.
