My Review: (Copy provided)
4.5-5 stars!

Why oh why did I wait so long to read this? It was so good! Let me say it's been awhile since I read Underground, book one in the series and I was so happy I got a recap in the beginning. I love that the author did this.

This book starts where book one left off, it starts at a fast pace and sucked me right in. Everyone knows I like my sexy romances well let me tell you this books romance does not disappoint in fact she writes Chi (H) and Thia's (h) love story and interactions without much graphic detail but with so much passion I got the butterflies.

"His lips find my throat and I combust. A sudden flame ignites inside me, and I catch on fire right here in Chi's arms."

I felt the love Chi had for Thia and Thia had for Chi, you could just feel it while reading. It's a beautiful love too. They have so many obstacles to overcome and so much to fight for.

"The person I loved most in this world has left me here, stranded on this shore of profound desolation."

The beginning of the book is a little disturbing and quite sad, well actually the whole scenario is very sad. I'm not going to lie I got really choked up a few times during this book. You really get to know the characters of the Underground and these poor people can't seem to get a break, just when you think things are looking up something happens. Illness, attacks, etc...I won't spoil anything but it keeps you on edge and has you turning pages to find out what's going to happen.

Alice Rachel has a way with words, her writing is beautiful and descriptive without being overdone.

"I know you don't believe it yet, but the pain will dull with time. It will never go away. But one day, you will wake up and sorrow will only be an echo of what you're feeling now."

I love this. It is the perfect wording for this scenario.

I really need to read the novella's now!!
I can't wait to find out what happens.
