Summary: This is continuation of the enemy they where facing in the first book, Pearl. Luis and Cassiel's relationship keeps evolving as they continue to get more comfortable with each other. As the book goes on Pearl continues to get more viscous with her attacks, and her waste of human life. They are still trying to find a way to beat her. Several new revelations come into play that shock them into realizing the enemy they are facing is a lot more terrifying than they could ever imagine. This realization might also be what they need to beat her. Cassiel shows more of her Djinn side in this book, because who she used to be is always lurking below the surface. She has to make hard decisions, and often shocking ones as well. Also, with Djinn still ignoring her, Wardens are rare in the area, and friends betraying them; they are realizing they are going to have to more independent than they hoped. Imara helps as much as she can. Although, the FBI seems ready to help get this threat taken care of. With this recent development of government interference could the Wardens have some of their rights taken away? It sure sounds like the government wants to.
Review: This book wasn't as fast paced as the first book. I feel like scenes are starting to repeat their selves. I liked it, but not as much as the first one. I'm hoping they will find a way to beat her soon, before it becomes too repetitive I don't like it. I like the progression of Luis and Cassiel's relationship, it is following a natural course still, and does not seem forced. There was parts that flat out shocked me, no one can say that Cassiel is a wimp after this book. I love her personality.
