A dark, desperate and compelling read. Situations get increasingly more tight and hope becomes all but a memory. Yet the characters are divine and will keep you turning pages long into the night. A great addition to a riveting tale.

Edgar is a perfect light pivot for this book. Everything is full of despair yet he stands stalwart amidst the onslaught. He almost doesn't grasp the danger or perhaps he has very little fear. Since he can't stop it he just keeps moving forward instead of being overcome. Right at the end there is this stellar comment made by Edgar about all the things he has endured that sums up his attitude perfectly. He thinks clearly and even humorously into perilous times.
Silas is the best semi-villain ever. He is always ready to remind you why he deserves the title of villain yet will surprise and delight you with his ability to be genuine. A good portion of this book is done in Silas' perspective which was a treat of enlightenment into his thoughts. In the first book I thought he was a truly chilling villain but now I have met something far worse. This new villain has thought of every angle and can counter everything. There is no escape only submission.

The ending of the book leaves very little to hope for. If you thought the characters were in a bad spot at the end of the last book you will see how mistaken you were. For those with a weak constitution you might want to consider waiting until the release of the third book before plunging in.

Violence: Moderate
