Faye Middleton thought the worst had come to pass the night she and her friends barely escaped from Ethryeal City and the clutches of the evil Priestess Clara. Officially shunned from the Coven, Faye is forced to lay low in order to come up with a plan to bring Clara down.
At Jaxen's childhood manor, they were supposed to be safe from any outside issues, and they were… until his long-lost mother shows up. Determined to win back what she lost so long ago, Evangeline reveals a secret that could shatter their beliefs, or be their saving grace.
Now, with two Covens searching for Faye, they must find a way to start over. With the help of the Rebellion, they begin the arduous task of forming their own army. However, the choices they are faced with leave them questioning everything they've ever known.
"This isn’t going to end well. She isn’t supposed to be here, outside this house, across the yard, staring at me like I’m a two-headed vampire about to suck the life from her veins. Her words aren’t supposed to be so intoxicating. Her gaze isn’t supposed to be the kind that glues you in place, turning your brain to mush and your instincts to that of a moth to a flame. Evangeline Gramm… the woman who escaped the infamous Gramm Curse. The mother who so easily abandoned her two boys. The Witch who has passed under the Primeval Coven’s radar longer than anyone ever thought possible. She could be our worst nightmare… or she could be the key to finding our salvation."
Everlost picks up right where we left in the previous book. We finally get some answers to some of the surprises we had but as you can imagine, the answers only bring more questions.
In this new book of the Night Watchmen series, things get even more complicated for Faye and Jaxen. The evil takes a darker tone and all her love ones are under a threat. Faye has to become the powerful force her enemies want to destroy but she is afraid to be. Friendships, alliances and love itself will be tested during this new story.
I always said that Faye is a really good character. She is no disappointment this time, she gets braver, stronger and now there is no doubt that she will change the world. I like her dynamic with the rest of the characters. Each one brings something to the table and each one is important on their own way. Weldon is super funny and I liked his contributions to the story.
This book brings us Evangeline. The Gramms’ mother comes with a pack of surprises. She will be the key to understand the past and the present.
The writing style is the same we had in the previous books, the passing is fast, the dialogues sound real and the descriptions of scenarios and battles is so good that it’s easy to imagine you there in middle of the action.
One thing I loved about this book is the more mature tone. We had a similar aspect in the last installment but this time the story is sexier, the passion is palpable and the heat reaches high levels. I always loved the relationship between Faye and Jaxen but now they put the bar higher, they take their relationship to a place of no return. Their love lives outside the pages of the book, it’s too strong and beautiful to be contained by pages (or a kindle).
Overall, I loved this new book. I can’t wait to continue the series. Candace keeps writing amazing books and completing this world where magic, demons and other creatures are real and extraordinary.
