He still lived in innocence when she left him to go to those regions where the Persians settled long after and where lived then preadamites smarter and more beautiful than men.

Whatever she does, she does neither good nor bad. Her daughters, she had of a mysterious hymen, are immortal like her and, like her, free of their actions and their thoughts, as they can neither gain nor lose before God.

This series builds each book upon the foundation of the prior book, which means that this review contains spoilers for the first book in the series. I must begin by saying how incredibly grateful I am that I was able to jump straight from Thrall into this second installment of the series. Waiting would have been sheer torture.

Quinletz's characters leap off the page and into your heart, leaving you completely invested in what happens for them next. Learning that she is 'the enemy' is bad enough, but learning that she could kill the boy she loves with a single kiss is torture.

While I write that tongue in cheek, I must admit that Braedyn tries her hardest to put the whole world ahead of her own desires.
Although the big bad from the first book has been out of the picture, it certainly doesn't take long for trouble to come a'knocking again.
