I tried to get the audio but it was a long wait list. I have the book already.

So much action in this one! I'm on chapter 20. I should have been commenting earlier, because there is so much going on!

Poor Darrow never knows who he can trust. Everyone has their own agenda. (view spoiler)

I haven't gotten that far. I miss Mustang. Darrow is tittering on the edge. He is playing a role as this big bad Gold but in his heart he is still a Red looking for Revenge for his wife and to maybe get a better life for all Reds. He is always second guessing who is really on his side and will they remain there once they find out who he is.

He should not have trusted Tactus!

Yes, it started off with a lot of action. They beat the Darrow. Poor Darrow!

True. Darrow trusted way to many people.

Harmony got meaner if at all possible. I cried my eyes out when Darrow found out all he loved when they hung his wife.

There's so many people in this book, it's hard to keep track of everyone and who belongs to which family.

I know especially when names are similar and you are listening to the audio. I'm so sorry for Darrow. He loved Cassius and thought they were friends. Killing Jullian, even though, Darrow had no choice ruined it. Rouke with his poet spirit is a true Gold so Darrow's friendship with him is doomed. Darrow's true friends are the Howlers and Mustang.

The golds are all about who is in power. They don't really care about anyone or anything...Even families. They will do whatever they need to do for the power and prestige.

And we finally find out who Ares is!! I never would have guessed...

That is so true about Gold's. That is how they are raised. I see the destruction of Rouke and Darrow's freindship...so not good. In the end it was sad to see Tactus die.

I know! I wonder how they are going to react when/if he tells them...Rouque and Mustang in particular.

Oh my goodness, that ending! I can’t say anything until you finish, but so much has happened.

Thus book has been a roller coaster of emotion for me. The author is not afraid of killing characters that you like or have mixed fellings about. The ending was brutual. They kill Aries, who is Servio's father what a shocker. I was sad about Lorn. He didnt even want to be a part of the war. The Jackal that heathen set it all up. What about Rouke's part in it? I knew it was coming but it still shocked me.

I liked this book even better than the first. Love Ragnar! He will make a good ally. Poor Darrow! He’s lost pretty much everyone now. And because of Roque and Jackal...he never should have trusted him.

I love him, too! I'm glad he didn't die. All Darrow's friends either died or betrayed him. So not good! It so broke my heart when Lorn died! I can start tomorrow.

Wow, they really started a civil war...everyone is involved. I wonder where Mustang is. It seems she’s still fighting on Darrow’s side. Unless she’s just trying to get revenge on Jackal.

Yes, they did. I feel bad for Servo. He was always the fighter not the leader but after his dad was killed and Darrow was captured then supposely exucuted...he tried to lead. It didnt work out well. On the other hand, Darrow was a leader but after the torture that the Jackal put him through, he losted his confidence. They definitely need to work together. Not sure where Mustang is. She wants revenge against the Jackal and Roque.

I'm not that far yet...they are talking with Roque and the Raa family in Io...

I can't believe he let Cassius live, though. It's only going to cause trouble.

I'm so upset with Rogue. I wanted him to have an open mind but he was brainwashed like so many Golds.

I can’t believe they let Cassius go!!! Darrow is way too innocent sometimes. I know he wants to believe his friends are still in there deep down somewhere, but you’d think he’d have learned his lesson by now.
