So Aria is finally free of the palace, but is she really free? Her heart still seems to belong to Braith, and she begins to hate him for the way he's made her feel. She wants to like Max, but she can't, and no one seems to believe the fact that she even really loved Braith. They're convinced her mind has been messed up and twisted into believign the impossible. Then, (as you read in the description) their safehold is raided and everyone is scattered. It's then that she sees Braith again, only he's not there to recapture her, he's there to kill her for the pain she caused him. Of course, everything in love is always a misunderstanding, and soon they're back to being forbidden, hidden lovers again, sharing blood and all that. Kissing and holding and trying not to,let go of the bond they share again. It's kind of like the excessive attachment that was formed between Edwad and Bella after New Moon, it was like they couldnt be apart. It's here that we begin to see that they're not just in love, they're drowning in it. It's both their strength and their weakness. Its passinate and blinding and all consuming. Soon they both must do things they dont want to do in order to hold on to the love they can't quite have.
I loved this book just as much as I loved Captured. I cant wait to see what happens next. I love love stories (yea I'm a big softy) and I hope to see that it prevails. 4.5 Stars!
