A continuation from The Named.

Lathenia (the Goddess of Chaos) is furious because she has just seen her soul-mate killed. Fu-ri-ous. She blames it all on Arkarian - the head of the Named, the Guardians of Time, those that go back into the past to thwart the Goddess' attempts to change the future by changing the past because her power grows with chaos.

The Goddess plots against Arkarian's life. Can the Named stop the Goddess' plans?

The Named was told mainly from Ethan's and Isabel's perspective. The Dark is told through Isabel's and Arkarian's. I miss Ethan :( Don't get me wrong, he's still a part of this book, but I miss hearing it from his perspective. Maybe it's because that's how I got introduced into this world.

This was still a good read (maybe 3.5 stars), but I think I enjoyed the first book more. I will definitely read the third book.

Here's a quote:
"Grief and passion make a volatile mix."
