The stunning sequel to the thrilling paranormal romance novel Everlasting!
One lie will change everything.
Faye Middleton has secured the Dagger of Retribution for the High Priesthood, but in doing so, she’s opened the door to more demands set by them. She now has to break the Holy Seal, and soon. Trapped in the alluring Ethryeal City, Faye is pushed to the breaking point trying to discover just what she is truly capable of, even if it means destroying herself in the process.
With the clock ticking down to the war between both Covens, and the truth about her parent’s mysterious disappearance within her reach, Faye is faced with tough choices that will forever change her. Will Faye be able to handle the demands from the Priesthood, and still be able to continue her search for her parents?
But more importantly, can she survive the truth she finds?
Candace Knoebel is the award-winning author of Born in Flames-book one in a young adult fantasy trilogy. She discovered in 2009 through lunch breaks and late nights after putting her kids to bed, a world where she could escape the ever-pressing days of an eight to five Purgatory. And an outlet for all the voices residing in her head.

Published by 48fourteen in 2012, Born in Flames went on to win Turning the Pages Book of the Year award in February of 2013. In January of 2014, the last book in the trilogy, From the Embers, was released, thusly completing the trilogy. She now works on the Night Watchmen Series, while guzzling Red Bulls and pretending to be a ninja on Heelys.


Evernight brings a new dimension to the Night Watchmen world. This time in the Ethryeal City, things will be more exciting, dangerous, bloodier and even hotter. Faye grows up to be the Everlasting everyone is waiting for and during that process she becomes a bold woman with nothing and all to lose at the same time.

This time the enemies have many faces and some of them are familiar. Faye will have to deal with more than any normal person should handle. Secrets will be revealed and the pain should be too much. However, Faye proves once more that she can be a great heroin. With all her flaws, indecisions, power and strength she is real and very human.

The relationship with Jaxen takes a new level and the sexual tension is electrifying to say the least. Jaxen and Faye are perfect for each other, the way electricity flies when they are together and the love you can feel in the author's words is stunning. I think the temperature rises in the perfect moments; it reaches high peaks and is never too low.

Unlike the first book, this time the adrenaline is always pumping. You can feel the action, the excitement, the fear. The author makes a really good job creating a world where danger is real, the threat is always present and the characters are always on the edge. The rhythm is constant and it traps you into the reading.
The language is engaging. The dialogues are entertaining. Overall, the writing is amazing.

This sequel really shows why this series is so addictive. The author took all the good she did in book one and in the prequel (Jaxen's story) and created an excellent book. I can’t wait for the next book, those preview chapters at the end of the book killed me.

  1. I haven't heard of the author and story but it does sound very exciting and engaging. I like that you said she's very human, like you yourself found her to be so, and in a way connected with her. It's not always us readers can connect to the characters! :)


Thanks for your comment!!!
