The breathtaking second novel in New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost’s Broken Destiny series finds Ivy and Adrian rekindling their alliance—and passion—as the struggle for the fate of the world begins…
Conquering a supernatural realm turned out to be easier than getting over a broken heart. But her initial victory has made Ivy a target for revenge, forcing her to reunite with the dangerous—and dangerously sexy—Adrian. Ivy isn’t sure which will be harder: finding the hallowed weapon that will repair the crumbling walls between the demon and human realms, or resisting Adrian, who’s decided that come hell or high water, he will make Ivy his.
At first, Adrian tried to resist his feelings for Ivy. Now, determined to break the curse that dooms their love, he’s vowed to save her and to have her. If only he can persuade her to forgive his past sins. But defying destiny—and surrendering to the smoldering desire between them—will bring consequences and sacrifices they never imagined…
My first book by Jeanine Frost, but definitely not my last! I loved the snarkiness she gave Ivy’s voice in this first-person POV story.
I haven’t actually read the first book in the series yet (The Beautiful Ashes) but it didn’t take me too long to get caught up with what was going on/what the “rules” of this world were. Ivy and Adrian are likable characters; though their fated to be enemies/destined to be together romance plot sometimes felt like an excuse for insta-relationship, I really did like them together do it’s hard to find fault. The infusion of biblical elements into the worldbuilding kept it interesting; the ending insures I’ll be haunting my inbox, waiting to see when the third book will be released!
Rating: 4 stars / B+
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
