Synopsis from Goodreads:

Determined to live a dark life in the company of the assassin who freed her from bondage, Sarai sets out on her own to settle a score with an evil sadist. Unskilled and untrained in the art of killing, the events that unfold leave her hanging precariously on the edge of death when nothing goes as planned. 

Sarai’s reckless choices send her on a path she knows she can never turn back from and so she presents Victor with an ultimatum: help her become more like him and give her a fighting chance, or she’ll do it alone no matter the consequences. Knowing that Sarai cannot become what she wants to be overnight, Victor begins to train her and inevitably their complicated relationship heats up. 

As Arthur Hamburg’s right-hand man, Willem Stephens, closes in on his crusade to destroy Sarai, she is left with the crushing realization that she may have bitten off more than she can chew. But Sarai, taking on the new and improved role of Izabel Seyfried, still has a set of deadly skills of her own that will prove to be all she needs to secure her place beside Victor.

But there is one test that Izabel must face that has the potential to destroy everything she is working so hard to achieve. One final test that will not only make her question her decision to want this dangerous life, but will make her question everything she has come to trust about Victor Faust.
My Thoughts...
This is the second book in this series and I believe that it's the last of this part of the series.  When I say this part of the story I mean the Victor and Sarai/Izabel part.  I know that the next book is going to be centered around Frederic and I can't wait for that one, because I really want to get to know him better.

This was the perfect 2nd book for this series.  There were parts of the book I loved and parts that were just okay, but all in all I loved the book.  I absolutely adore Victor and I very much doubt that he could do anything that would make me not like him.  I thought that Sarai was a little too reckless in this book and I don't think I would have handled her with the patience that Victor did. 

Basically, this book starts out about 8 months after the last book ended.  Sarai has been attempting to live a normal life, but we all knew that wasn't going to last.  She does something stupid that lands her in a bit of hot water and she has to be bailed out.  She finds out that Victor hasn't ever been too far away from her.  She has started on a path that she can hardly go alone and Victor knows he has no choice but to give her what she wants.  Just in case you are wondering, this is totally my Victor!

This book is just stuffed full of action and once I started reading I couldn't put it down.  I ended up reading it in just a couple of hours.  There is a bit of a twist at the end that I did not see coming and it was just the perfect thing for the story even if it doesn't seem like it while you are reading it.  If  you liked the first book then I highly recommend picking this one up.  If you haven't read either book and you are looking for something different then you need to read this series.  This is a New Adult/Adult series so there are some fairly detailed love scenes as well as pretty intense murder and torture scenes.

If you pick this book up I would love to hear what you thought about it so just leave me a comment!

Happy Reading!
XOXO, Shelly
