Book Description: Darkness never works alone…Nadya doesn’t trust her magic anymore. Serefin is fighting off a voice in his head that doesn’t belong to him. Malachiasz is at war with who–and what–he’s become. As their group is continually torn apart, the girl, the prince, and the monster find their fates irrevocably intertwined. They’re pieces on a board, being orchestrated by someone… or something. The voices that Serefin hears in the darkness, the ones that Nadya believes are her gods, the ones that Malachiasz is desperate to meet—those voices want a stake in the world, and they refuse to stay quiet any longer.

I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I was super excited to receive this ARC because I had been anxiously waiting to find out what happens next! I thought this was a good sequel to the first book and it had me hooked from the beginning. It started off right where the first book left off so you are just thrown right back into the story.

The characters were basically all the same from the first book, but you get to learn more about them as the story goes along. I always like the sarcastic banter between Nadya and Malachiasz. I am always rooting for them to find a way to be together. I like that they test each other and then at the same time almost compliment each other. We learned more back story of the other side characters and it was interesting and make you want to learn more about them.

The plot of this story moves along nicely and keeps you entertained and wanting to see what was going to happen. I like the chapters are different perspectives of characters so you get to see different parts of the story. I am very interested in seeing what happens now that Serefin has severed his connection with the God trying to take him over.

I really overall enjoyed the book and am now eagerly anticipating the third one so I know what is going to happen now that it seems all hell has broken lose in the world! I definitely would recommend this book.
