High in the mountains of the Swiss Alps Leah Wilde is about to gamble her life to bring a powerful man an offer. A promise.
Leah has heard the dark stories about him and knows she is walking into the lion’s den. But her options are running out. Her rare lineage, kept secret for years, is under terrible threat. That is, unless Leah and her mother Hannah are prepared to join up with their once deadly enemies.
I got a copy of this book from the publisher via bookbridgr. In the small amount of research I did I saw no mention of the fact that it is a sequel. If I had known it was a sequel I would not have requested it.
This book does not explain what is going on in this world. It assumes that the reader has read the first book; The String Diaries. The book focuses on the mysterious people known as the hosszu eletek but never actually explains what the hosszu eletek actually are. Some parts of the book simply don’t make any sense and others refer back to The String Diaries without ever explaining fully what happened.
I tried to read this without reading The String Diaries and got very confused. Having gone back to read the first book I will say that this was mildly interesting. I was just pissed that I had to go read another book just to understand what was going on.
*I received a copy of this book from Headline in exchange for an honest review.
