The second book in the Soul Seekers series about a girl who can navigate between the worlds of the living and the dead by #1 New York Timesbestselling author Alyson Noël!
Daire Santos just saved her grandmother's life—and her soul. But at a cost. The Richters, a dark family of sorcerers, have been let loose in the Lowerworld, and Daire and her boyfriend, Dace, must once again work together to find them before they upset the balance between good and evil, and destroy not only their small town in New Mexico, but the entire world. As Daire and Dace's relationship deepens, Dace’s evil brother Cade grows stronger than ever, building his power and forcing Daire to confront the horrifying prophecy that has brought them all together. One that will leave Daire no choice but to claim her true destiny as Seeker, but only by making an unthinkable sacrifice for the greater good of all.
Talk about an ending. I did not see the ending of this book coming at all. I had to admit that when I went into this book I was feeling a little ambivalent. The first book was good, but not great, but I started a series and so I wanted to see it though. I have to say though, I felt that this book was better then the first.
For starters I felt that Daire grew a lot more from where she was in the first book, and throughout this book. I was, however, shocked to find some of her actions insta-lovey since it was only about a month since the end of the first book. Maybe that was why it felt less insta-love because it was the second book.
One of my favorite parts of reading this book was the use of multiple narrators, namely Daire and Dace (which was still confusing). I was also disappointed that her mom, who makes a surprise appearance, wasn't more upset that her daughter was out all night, all she says is "I hope you were safe." Everything about Jennika says that she should have flown off the handle about this.
I was sad about how the way this book had to go, but I loved that the plot from the first book, the battle against the Richters and the training of Daire. I wish I could talk more about it, but I don't want to give away too many of the major plot points, but for me the ending made this book.
