Synopsis from Goodreads:

The world has been thrown into darkness by the Shadow Witch's revolution. The witch-hunters are scattered, but still strong. The race is now on to gather allies and win the war.

New enemies will arise; loyalties will be pushed to the limit. And an important question will be answered: can a witch-hunter that practices magic ever be trusted, or will he be persecuted?
It is said that 'love conquers all', but this twisted love must stay secret, locked away with the past.

My Review:

I quite enjoy Marsden’s writing style. She draws you into the story with her inviting yet dense and thought-provoking writing. A sense of darkness winds its way through Marsden’s descriptions painting this world in shades of red and grey. Everything is very easy to picture, and the storyline definitely sparks your imagination. The story definitely ends a bit harshly at the ending without being a definite cliff-hanger, leaving you reaching for the next novel in the series.

I quite enjoyed getting to know the characters in this novel a bit better. Marsden continues to develop these individuals, allowing them to grow based on their circumstances and trials. You also get to know the characters not just as individuals, but as a group and as friends. Their interactions with one another are just as revealing about who they are as their individual histories are

Overall, I quite enjoyed this story. It didn’t capture my attention quite the way the first one does but I have high hopes for the third novel in the series.
