When the walls of lies begin closing in, who do you trust?There is nothing worse than failure, especially one that results in your school being attacked by a ruthless enemy. Still reeling from the aftermath of the previous night, Sam and her cousins must deal with another crisis: Alexia has run away.To top it off, there are new players in town. The young Arcadians will be forced to work closely with the prestigious Nox Elite. But they will soon find out that nursing a bruised ego is nothing compared to fighting a faceless enemy, battling personal demons, and dealing with revelations that will forever change their lives.

Thank you to Michelle for providing me with a copy of this book. I loved book one so when I was offered a chance to review this book I had to say yes.

This book picks up exactly where the last one ends. Matthew is a mess after regaining his memories while the rest of the tragedies are dealing with the aftermath of the Homecoming Dance. Alexia has just found out her true identity as well as the identity of her ‘cousins’. In all honesty is a big mess.

There are a lot of twists and turns in this book that keeps you on the edge. You never quite know what is going to happen next which I enjoyed. I loved the little romances that were forming in the sidelines.

This book is extremely fast paced and doesn’t let up for a second. This makes it extremely difficult to put down. Michelle makes it so easy for you to get lost in their world.

Without giving too much away, there were some secrets that were revealed but there were also some mysteries that will keep you begging for the next book.

About M.H. Soars

M. H. Soars is what we like to call a United Nations child. She was born in the United States but grew up in several different countries which gave her a broader perspective of life. She has always been passionate about books and stories and at a certain point had a comic book series going.

With a background in fashion design she always thought she was going to follow that path. But the characters in her head kept begging to be set free. So she decided to write their stories. A couple of years and a baby later, the first installment of her Arcadian Wars series is finally done.

M. H. Soars currently resides in New Mexico with her husband and baby daughter. She loves to read novels in the YA, PNR, Fantasy, Historical Fiction, and Chick Lit genres. When not devouring said novels, you may find her shopping online (she’s an expert), blogging about fashion, or trying to teach her daughter to walk (even though she’s too young for that).
