This is the sequel to The Lost and the Chosen, which I also reviewed. If you want to check that review out, click here! After I read the first book in the series, I was hooked. The second book was a very satisfying follow-up to the first.
Goodreads description – My name is Vinna and I am a Sentinel. I’m the last in a line of a hunted, magical race, coveted and killed for our power and abilities. I was hidden and protected, but now that I’ve been found, it’s a race to see who can command and control me. Joke’s on them, I bow to no one. I need to master my magic, and protect the five guys I’ve marked as my own at all costs. Because the line between friend and foe is dangerously blurry, and I’m collecting enemies like Sentinels collect runes. It’s time to prepare for battle, claim my place, and get ready to fuck up anything or anyone that comes for me and my Chosen.
The more and more I read this series, the more that it exceeds my expectations. Ivy Asher embraces her talent and creates such a unique and amazing world that continues to bring out my envy. I wish that I could live in the world she created. Her characters continue to draw me in and make me have emotions throughout the book. In this book, I laughed. I cried. I was scared. I was angry. I was overwhelmed. I felt all the emotions that Vinna felt because she is such a likable character. Her backstory continues to unravel in this book, and the readers are able to understand her a bit more. I absolutely love that she doesn’t conform to the traditional caster roles that the elders continue to force upon her. She is a badass heroine, and I hate that this series is only going to live through 4 books.
This review is going to be shorter because there isn’t much I can say that you would understand unless you read the first book. So. READ. It. It’s a great read, and I love that it is a different take on the supernatural. This book is a reverse harem, so there is a lot of polygamy – which, as I mentioned in my last review, I was weirded out by at first; however, I am okay with it now and I’m jealous that Vinna gets all these hot guys that love her, lol. I’m a little bitter.
I finished this book in a day. I was stuck in a traffic jam on my way home from work, and there was no movement. I was in a dead stop for over an hour, and I started reading this book. It pulled me in so much that I was kind of disappointed which traffic started moving, and I head to start driving.
READ. THIS. SERIES! I will leave the amazon links below!
At the end of this book, there is a cliffhanger that makes you ask what the hell is going on.. If Vinna is the last sentinel.. then how is Enoch’s coven getting the runes? Is there another one…? If so, then who is it… I honestly don’t even have any theories at this point.. One thing I am wondering is if Laiken is still alive.. I’m not sure if it was mentioned in the book if Vinna watched her die.. or maybe she became a lamie (vampire)… I’m not sure.. I may need to reread the series and pay attention to the details again. Another thing… I wonder if her dad is still alive..? In the first book, we found out Talon saw her mother die, but what about her dad. Ohhh, that reminds me… Sorick came to see Vinna during the pack run in the second book, and he was marked by Vinna’s mother.. Maybe they had another baby and he/she is a sentinel too. Wouldn’t that be a huge turn of events.. I have no idea, but I am really excited to find out.
END OF SPOILERS
If you haven’t read this series, I highly recommend it. It’s great, and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed especially if you love supernatural/paranormal romance. I had all the feels reading this book, and I don’t know if I can wait until May until the 3rd book. 😦
If you have read this, please share your theories and thoughts with me. I would love to have a discussion about this. If you haven’t read it, let me know if I have changed your mind, lol.
Until next timeeeee.
