The most important rule for an Apprentice Consul is simple: Don't get involved with daemons. Well, Piper is planning to break that rule — big time.
After a near-deadly scandal with the Sahar Stone, she has the chance to return to the only life she's ever wanted. All she has to do to keep her Apprenticeship is forget about Ash and Lyre. Ash might be enigmatic and notoriously lethal, and Lyre might be as sinfully irresistible as he is irritating, but they’re not bad for a couple of daemons.
There's just one problem: Ash is missing.
Really, she shouldn't risk her future for him. He lied. He betrayed her. But he also saved her life, damn it. Wherever he is, he's in trouble, and if she doesn't save his sorry butt, who will? But with every dangerous secret she unravels, each one darker than the last, she slips deeper into Ash's world — a world with no escape for either of them.

What I thought of this book.
I have a hard time trying to figure out how I feel about this series. I found the first one a bit confusing but the action was great and kept me going. In book two it’s well about the same as I am still a bit confused about the whole Sahar stone, but it does get explained a bit more in this one.
Piper has to deal with the fall out of what happened from book one and her father is none to happy with her and her hanging out with daemons. Apprentice Consul’s are not suppose to get involved with them and she is hanging out with two of them. Her father doesn’t seem to care that if it wasn’t for them she wouldn’t probably be dead.
Then Ash goes missing and she has to go into the underworld to find him. She learns that even though she doesn’t have magic she can some how will the Sahar and it saves her life a few times. Though if she uses it to much it seems to reach into her soul.
She escapes with Ash but then because of a blood kiss (something I must have missed cause I don’t remember that happening) she must go back to the underworld to Samael) has an antidote. Ash and Miysis are going to go and get her and fight Samael, but things don’t go quiet as planned.
Not sure why I keep going but for some reason no matter how confused I am I still got to know what happens. I think I mainly like Ash and Lyre the two daemons and I am curious as to how that will go though not a fan of triangles. Piper is not week and is a good character and a fighter. It has a lot of action which keeps the story going at a great pace but I still finding myself not sure what is going on or why…lol.
If you like Urban Fantasy and you think you might like it then give it a try..lol. It has a 4.36 rating on Goodreads so maybe I am just not good with UF and world building. 🙂
Jorjeana Marie does a good job of narrating this novel which probably helps me to keep going even when confused. 🙂
