In this world, nothing is as it seems . . .
Reggie’s visions turn to horrifying hallucinations. For weeks she’s tortured with starvation and nightmares that vex her resolve. Her only companion is a mysterious shadow—a figure with no shape, no substance—that seems to have a mind of its own. It’s a presence that prickles her memories and plants a feeling of familiar dread in her mind.
Where she is, she doesn’t know, and the organization delving into her mind is more threatening than ever before.
With the help of shady contacts from his past, Nate struggles to travel half way around the world, facing his own demons and dreadful revelations. But when a stranger joins the team, the duality of this newcomer’s actions sets everyone on edge, leading them through a trial one of them . . . will not survive.
This book is raw, tender and fierce. Every single aspect of it. I never wanted this book to end because then, I would have to wait another year for the last book in the Enertia Trials to come out.
This book is by far the most depressing of all. Reggie is locked up most of the time and has to face with nightmares that wouldn’t stop intruding her conscience. Nate is being the moody self that he is. But now, even more than ever that Reggie is gone and captured by the bad guys. Ransley and Roy too has a lot to reflect and ponder. Ransley just wouldn’t let go of the past and ends up crushing both of their souls.
Its a great addition to have London back. I’ve always liked that kid. Even though he is a bit too young to go into the enemy’s territory and help Nate fight the evil wards. But, yes to young courage and bravery.
I would gladly be in the story to kill off Martin Lobb and Roman. Those guys are pure evil and justice needs to be prevailed on them. Its not fair how much other people are suffering because of them. Yes, they are fictional. But fictional characters almost always have the tendency to make an impact on us – without even realising it until its too far deep.
I really enjoyed myself reading this phenomenal book. I was constantly on edge to find out what happens next as the story progresses.
This book ended with my heart utterly broken. Although, I have a theory that could prove it otherwise. For now, I’ll just calmly wait for the final book to be released.
