Since Judge Crevan has declared her the number one threat to the public, she has been a ghost, on the run with Carrick -- the only person she can trust.

And, most important of all, can she prove that to b whitman in itself is to be Flawed?

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I absolutely loved the first book. I devoured it like no tomorrow. It was incredible and it was effective. I couldn't wait to jump into this book. Unfortunately as fate would have it, I had a tonne of other books and exams to do first. But here we are. I am about to start this book and I am super nervous. I am not sure what to expect from it besides that it will be great. Here's to hoping that this will also blow me away.

Thank you so much to Jonathan Ball Publishers for sending me this book to review. I am so grateful! Just a small little disclaimer for those reading this. I received this book for free. No money from my pocket was spent in getting this book. Please note that in no way does this affect my opinion. All thoughts still remain my own.

Writing Thoughts:

There wasn't much of a change in the writing style from the first book to this one, so if you would like to see my thoughts on the writing style be sure to read the review on the first book. Which can be found here.

Plot Thoughts:

The plot to this book was superb. I was addicted from the first page. The story sort of picks off right where we left off. With tensions running thick and the danger for Celestine still be high. I was sitting on the edge of my seat from the very beginning and even when the last page was gone, my shoulders still remained tense and a soft and mild sense of adrenaline was slowly pumping through my veins. I was additives to Celestine's story since the first book and to be honest I still want more. I want more moments where it can go either way. I want more scenes where Celestine does a complete one-eighty and surprises not only the characters but us, the readers, as well. 

Character Thoughts:

This book reconfirmed and strengthened the characteristics that were present in the characters in the first book.

Celestine is still a strong and independent woman who has definite leadership skills. Carrick is still a strong yet understanding character who feels deeply. I hardly get as attached to characters as I am to these characters. I just want more and it breaks my heart that I won't be able to see more of them.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, in the words of A Magical World of Words, I was blown away. I had my socks knocked off from the beginning. There is no other way for me to say that this book is amazing and perfect.

I highly, highly recommend that you go out and buy this series because I can promise you that the moment you pick up the first book and read the first sentence, you won't be able to put the series down.

Thank you so so so much to Jonathan Ball Publishers for providing me with a copy of this book.

Yours in Reading,



  1. Amazing review, Melleny, and I am SO glad you loved this darling of a book!! It's just incredible, isn't it? It was literally Perfect <3

    Just to let you know, you've said "in the worlds of A Magical..." etc etc, instead of "in the words." Thanks for the mention, by the way!
