Izabel and Naeva find themselves right where they wanted to be in Mexico: captured and held in the slave compounds owned by the Ruiz family. But the two are soon separated and forced into very different—but equally dangerous—situations. Izabel spends the next three weeks playing a role she never expected she would get the opportunity to play, but her luck runs out when Naeva’s life hangs in the balance, and only Izabel can save her. But at a terrible cost. If Izabel chooses to help Naeva, it will expose a lie she has been carrying on her shoulders since she met Victor Faust. A lie that will not only potentially make everyone in Victor’s Order distrust her going forward, but one that will also blow her carefully constructed cover In Mexico, and that could get her killed.
Fredrik, still looking for his serial killer, does not have to look long—the killer finds him. And Niklas’s past catches up to him when an old enemy comes back for revenge. But it will be Victor’s actions that shake up those left in his Order, and ultimately, be its downfall.
I swear to god these books just get more insane as they go on and somehow the number of characters I like in each book dwindles as I reach the next one.
I wasn’t the biggest fan of this book for so many reasons, mainly because I hate everyone (except Niklas and Fredrik, they’re my precious cinnamon rolls), but holy jesus, can everyone let Izabel stand up on her own two feet and do her thing? She doesn’t need a babysitter (even if it was a little cute to watch them all pander around like little children worried they’d lose their prize toy).
Izabel is as cold as ice and as ruthless as they come. She doesn’t need anybody. And that gets proven again, and again. Even the plot twist wasn’t all that shocking when you consider her character. But damn was I shook! And fist pumping the air because the betrayal, you guys! The betrayal. I was living for it. I have disliked Victor for so many books (have you ever met someone so bland and boring?) that I was sipping that good tea when it was revealed. And then she had to ruin it with her “I love you, Victor” speech. Yawn.
