I tried to run. I tried to escape. I failed.
When I was dragged from Earth to Under, my life as I knew it ended. Everyone else who was brought here with me has found their place in this world of myths and monsters. They are all now a part of the fabric of a strange universe. Everyone, except me.
The ceremony that turned everyone else into supernatural creatures left me as a human. More importantly, it left me mortal. This has never happened before. Because of that, they think I’m a threat. Edu, the King of Flames, threatened to kill me. So, I did the only logical thing—I tried to run.
But a second king has woken from his slumber. Aon, the King of Shadows, the demon amongst monsters, has risen. And he’s come for me. They call him a warlock and a madman. And now I’m a “guest” in his home, and I am afraid to learn if they’re right. I don’t know what his plans for me are…but I think I’m about to find out.
Edu still wants me dead. Aon is a dangerous mystery. I must try and survive, but this world called Under seems to have other plans.
This second part of the series is every bit as fantastic as the first book and I'm thoroughly hooked! This picks up right where the first book ended, but Lydia is pretty sure that what ain't up is down and things aren't always as they seem. Aon is....well, not sure what to say without giving up any information accidentally, but suffice it to say that Aon might NOT be what he seems (but then again, he just might lol), Edu's got his own thoughts and beliefs when it comes to Lydia and the Under, the other houses are wary of her and her intentions, and she just wants to resume her life before the upheaval and her new reality. I'm already eager for the next book!
