This is the second book by Susan Harris and I can thoroughly recommend it. The story follows on well from the first book and develops well into its own throughout the book. As usual Susan captures the personalities of the characters and each one has their own little quirks. The characters develop well throughout the book, to where you love and hate them at the same time. Some truths come out in this book, you learn about Luca's past, about Cassie's destiny and what is the link between Archer and Luca! The only criticism I would have about the book is the ending. I can understand why Susan has ended like she has, because clearly there is a sequel, but for me it ended to sharply. I think perhaps the ending would have been better had it been slightly earlier, when a decision was made and told to Cassie. But it then continued on then it ended, and it seemed just a bit too sudden. However, it didn't detract from the book, and I cannot wait for the next book in the series. The ending for me is what stopped it being a 5 because i just sat there trying to work out if I had lost some pages form the kindle. But read the book, it is absolutely superb.
