Some things lie beneath the surface.


With the power to change everything.

Joy Malone wants it all—power, freedom and the boyfriend who loves her. Yet when an unstoppable assassin is hired to kill her, Joy learns that being the girl with the Sight comes with a price that might be too high to pay. Love will be tested, lives will be threatened, and everyone Joy knows and cares about will be affected by her decision to stand by Ink or to leave the Twixt forever.

Her choice is balanced on a scalpel's edge and the consequences will be more life-altering than anyone can guess.

I received this book for free from the publisher or author in exchange for an honest review.

5 Stars

Seriously, what is up with sequels nowadays? When did they become more than just set-ups for an epic finale? This is the second sequel I’ve read in a row and neither suffered from the Second-Book-Syndrome. That’s a very good thing, but my poor heart can’t take this many feels!

I’ll keep this spoiler free for both books, so I’ll just go straight to telling you what I liked and disliked. This’ll probably be a shorter review than normal. When I read Indelible last year, I didn’t expect to like it. But I loved it. It blew me away and the romance was perfect. Needless to say I was eager to read the sequel! And then, last month, I got an e-mail saying I was part of the blog tour so I’d be getting a review copy too and yes, I was happy. Happy dancing, flailing, fangirling, all of it. And like you might have noticed already, this did not disappoint.

The writing is still so great and the world of the Twixt is so fascinating! I absolutely love it so much and I’m so fascinated by it! I just can’t get enough of it. The story of a sequel is usually a bit boring and just a set up for the finale (if it’s a trilogy). Well, that’s what I thought anyway. Seems like the rules have changed lately. I’ve been reading a lot of great sequels! And this one has a fantastic story. I was laughing, giggling, swooning, yelling, biting my nails, sobbing and even crying. This was another emotional roller coaster, which I did not see coming. Dawn was right when she warned me a few weeks back on Twitter. I can’t even imagine what the next book has in store.

I still love Joy so much and in this book we’re introduced to her brother properly and I love how Joy is around him! They’re so adorable together and yes, I fell in love with her brother immediately. Inq and Monica are still fantastic too but the best character is Ink. He grows so much in these books and I love him so, so much! I feel for him and the romance between him and Joy is just breathtaking! I can’t go into it too deep because that would mean spoilers but it’s amazing.

The Twixt is now one of my favorite series out there and I highly recommend them to everyone! I can’t wait to read the rest of this series and find out what happens to my Ink! Read this! Oh and tissues may be necessary.

Be sure to stop by September 17th for my interview with Dawn on my tour stop!

About Dawn Metcalf

The role of Dawn Metcalf will be played by the tall brunette in the off-the-shoulder, floor-length leather straitjacket. Makeup by Clinique, buckles by Jada Pinkett Smith, hair by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop.

I have no good excuse for the way I write. I lived in a normal, loving suburban home, studied hard, went to college, went to graduate school, got married, had babies and settled down in northern Connecticut. Despite this wholesome lifestyle, I’ve been clearly corrupted by fairy tales, puppet visionaries, British humor and graphic novels. As a result, I write dark, quirky and sometimes humorous speculative fiction.

  1. OOoh nice! I’m reading this one now myself! At the 70% mark now, so around 290 pages. Really really enjoying it too! Kind of in the heartbreaking point now myself and hoping it mends before the end! (ha! a rhyme!) Great review!
