Ashlyn never believed in fairy tales until she was in one.
They say ignorance is bliss, but not when you’re on a centuries old hit list…and there’s a traitor in your midst.
Ashlyn must decide what’s most important: trusting the allies she has, or siding with those she thought were enemies. Ashlyn knows old friends can turn on her, and unlikely allies may be the best chance she has to piece her family back together. No matter what her choice, she could lose someone she loves.
And when you don’t know who to trust, believe one thing: You can never trust a faerie.
On this second book, Ashlyn is now officially a Bridger and she continues to struggle with the loss of her father and disappearance of her brother. And there’s her internal battle with immortality and desire to keep Liam alive. The hardships that the lovers have gone through were no joke. Ash would do everything to save her family and her loved ones, even if she had to turn to her enemies and side with them.
Of course, there are still lots of action-packed sequences right at the beginning of the story. What kept me sane was the thought that there was a traitor in their midst and I didn’t stop until I knew who it was. Oh I love the very interesting twists in the end! I was really caught off guard when I learned who the real traitor was. That was just so sick! Lesson learned: Never trust a fairie. Really!
Honestly, I fell in love with the characters more here in the second book. Liam still mesmerized me with his prowess and undying devotion. Reese..ohh my hero! I am so happy for him! Reese narrating half of the story was wicked. Words are not enough to express how much I loved him in this book. Memaw, on the other hand, is still one hell of a grandma, but there is something off with her, I just couldn’t tell what. and then there’s Ankou.. Jamie..Chris..Aiden.. These creatures sent shiver down my spine. But I loved how they were given more importance in this sequel. They had their own distinct personalities and served their purpose in the end.
But is this really the end? No, because there is still a third book and that’s what I look forward to.
Overall, I must say that this is really a very exciting book. I would love to see this on the big screen! True, Traitor and Bridger are aimed for the younger generation (I’m already in my early 30s, mind you!) but it still captivated me. Megan Curd proves herself to be a master of fantasy / paranormal with her masterfully written sequel. Her writing is stunning and fluid. I really can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
5 stars ***** rating for Megan Curd and a toast for another great story!
