Into the worm's hole
Have you ever noticed in the second book of a series the love interest always leaves? Because I have and it drives me insane. New Moon, Beautiful Darkness, Tiger's Quest, Kissing Coffins, Frostbite, Dreamless, I could make a list a mile long of all the squeals that the male or female lead in the case of Beautiful Darkness are missing from most of the book.Other than Lena being gone through out most of the book it was pretty good. I must say I did like the first one better, but this is up there with it. I like how Kami and Margaret expanded a little more into the Caster world. We got to see more of the tunnels and find out about more of what type of Casters there were in the world. We met more characters and we got to learn more about Macon and Ethan's mom, Lila. When Lena leaves Ethan it's the beginning of summer break and Ethan thinks that everything will be okay, sort of. He's trying to cheer Lena up after Macon's death, sorry if I spoiled it for you, but I won't tell you how he dies. She thinks it's all her fault that Macon's dead, and she says she can feel herself going Dark. She's afraid that she's going to hurt Ethan and she doesn't want to do that to him. So she runs away on the back of some other guys motorcycle. I stared at the book completely dumbfounded when she did that. Macon comes back to life! I was so happy because he's one of my favorite characters, I like his sassiness. Ethan has to let him out of the Archlight, still not quite sure what that is exactly, but I know it can trap people inside. Ethan's mom put him there. And that's all I'm going to say. I don't want to ruin the whole book for you. So Olivia is a new characters as I said above. She is Marian's apprentice. Olivia is studying to be a Keeper like Marian, so she's in Gatlin and she sort of falls for Ethan. Ethan is a little on the fence about Olivia because even though Lena is a little AWOL at the moment he still loves her. So nothing really happens between them, but you know Olivia wants to happen. And I'm like, 'Hell to the no! He's Lena's!'

P.S. I know there was a movie for the first one, but I'm not sure if there's going to be one for this one. I hope there is because I liked the first movie. Some might complain because it didn't follow the book, but if you don't judge it by the way it wasn't like the book it was a pretty good movie. So my fingers are crossed to hoping there is a second movie.
NOTE: If you want to see the trailer for the first movie just go to my review of Beautiful Creatures to see it.
