I have already finished book #3 and when I finished #2 it was my favorite, but now I am having a hard time remembering this one. I remember what happened in book 1 and book 3, but book 2 in kind of a blur…
This book takes up right where the first one end (which was right in the middle!). Syn had just looked through a window to see Rider and his 13 in black robes and brutally interrogating a group of men…some of which Syn knew…from The Guild! Syn runs away right as rider looks up to see her (end book 1), Syn makes it away from Rider and to The Guild where she is persona non grata anymore because she is fae and not a witch! Her mentor Alden coldly tells her to get lost. She ends up going to her parents’ house where she is living with Adam. Except is going into transition faster than Syn and has to be taken to Rider’s so he can transition in safety.
Syn has signed another contract with Rider which gives him the sole right to guide her through her transition. On top of this, the mages are still out there killing fae and they are also after Synthia now. She ends up moving back in with Rider and his men. The bombshell in this book is who they think Synthia is. They know who Adam is (another bombshell) and because of this it puts Syn in a position to choose her own happiness or the death or thousands of fae. Fae that she thought she hated for killing her parents, but she is learning that not all fae are evil like not all humans are good. She meets her mother and father and more as she is taken back to Faery to fulfill a prophesy.
