This is the second book in the series and follows Cassie through her coming to terms with being part of the Few although she is also very different from all the rest of them. It follows through her relationship with the stunningly beautiful Ranjit and the problems that come with the relationship they have. There are a lot of secrets kept between the 3 friends that in the end cause trouble between them all, but when the time comes they have to put things aside and deal with the real problem at hand, that they are all in danger from the past coming back with vengeance. Will they manage to settle everything and deal with the threats or will death follow Cassie around as it seems to have done in the past.
I found this a really good second installment of the series, it easily took over where the first left off keeping me captivated with Cassie's story. As well as her trials and tribulations at coming to terms with being Few,and everything that comes with that and more . Delving into the new city and finding out more about the characters and what they have to deal with is so well written that you feel like you could be there. I found that i wanted to know what was going to happen and how everything was going to end for Cassie both in her private life and her life within the Few. I will be heading over very soon to re read the third part in this series so stay tuned.
