Outline:
There is a world that runs parallel to our own, a world in which the souls of the damned are caged, where they are looked over by the Furies, and where they spend eternity in torment, mirroring the devastation and mayhem they created when alive.

Someone has opened the cage.

The worst of terrors has crossed the barrier that separates our world from theirs, and the Furies send a great, albeit untested warrior—their only son, Alek—to try to bring those souls back. He is young and handsome, headstrong and impulsive, and he won’t be able to do it alone. 

Eva has grown up, beautiful and beloved, but surrounded by secrets. First, she will be hunted in an ancient feud that will threaten her life. Then, she will become the hunter.

With the police closing in and two worlds on the verge of crumbling around them, Alek and Eva must find each other, discover the limits of their powers, and work together to save everything they hold dear, including one another. Blending elements of mythology with the dazzling storytelling that her fans have devoured through the House of Night series, Kristin Cast weaves a spellbinding and passionate tale that starts a thrilling new series with an explosive charge.


My thoughts
This was definitely more than I was expecting. I was expecting more or less a paranormal love story. What I got was a mixture of mystery, mythology, love, and so much more.

I think my favorite  aspect of the story was the mystery of who this person was that was hunting people, and why was Eva on the list. 

I really enjoyed Eva as a character even when her life was turned upside down she didn't panic.

Honestly, I think Bridget was my favorite character she stood by her friend, and was willing to get all caught up in her drama.

A few of my favorites parts.
"There are always other paths. We are faced with their challenges daily."

"Does this mean you're going to live forever? Or at least until chops off your head or stabs you with a wooden stake through your heart?" "I'm not a zombie or vampire, Bridget. I'm still me."

"Someone told me once that sometimes we have to do things that are wrong because we're protecting people who are right."
