A job well done!

I loved this book. Adored it. Gave up my Saturday just to finish reading it. But boy it was worth every sentence.

Before I continue I must say that I recommend reading the first part (Debt Inheritance) before reading this one otherwise you will have no idea as to what’s going on.

Okay so this part continues from where the last book finished;  when Jethro decides to give Nila a chance at running away in to the forest to escape her fate. You know because he’s such a nice chap and all. Even if he has her against her will to pay some debt from ancestors hundreds of years ago.I will refrain from revealing anything to do with the story, simply because I would hate to ruin a good book for you and this is one of those story’s,  where the scenes are very long so revealing something may mean ruining the story.

I think I expected this to be more similar to the first, in the sense that Jethro would remain this inhumane and awful species, and Nila the woman who I feel sorry for. Although I did not exactly get what I expected, I will say that it worked out pretty well for the book as a whole. Nila transformed completely. I think being isolated her whole life, then coming to live with the Hawks who are so different from her previous life changed her. She saw the world for what it was, because there’s no one protecting her from its reality any more. We get to witness a part of Jethro that is completely the opposite from the first book. We get to learn more about his personality, how his coldness is a façade because inside him is a burning fire. And It’s completely against what he’s been taught to become.  He had to stick with fighting to keep his real self at bay but it’s really difficult with Nila in the picture now.

I should never have attempted something so barbaric without shielding my mind properly. Every strike hurt Nila externally, but she couldn’t see what it did to my soul.

Jethro is honestly not who he seems. It’s still really hard to figure him out even after completing the second book. I have difficulty understanding him but I think that’s part of the appeal to him. He makes a fabulous main character! And I can’t wait to get to know him better in the next part of the series. He’s one of those alpha males you love and hate at the same time. Which is just as well because these two characters; Nila and Jethro are what’s making this book so great for me. It’s their chemistry, their development, their complexities and the strength they possess.

He was exactly like the iceberg he favoured, only in different lights, more truth shone. Some bright and light blinding, others black and deep and terrifying. But it didn’t matter, because in that moment, I was in the heart of the iceberg, and all I found was passion.

The only thing i disliked was how long the scene stretched out. What happened to be highlight in the previous part; the detail and depth of each scene, actually wasn’t as appreciated in this part by me. I feel if their was more story happening rather than just explanation then I would have loved this book even more. it could have been an even better experience if there was more action present and I would have witnessed more happening with the story development.

I don’t want to wait for the next part. I need it now! The story and plot has me so intrigued I cannot wait to find out what will happen next. And I wonder how Nila will repay the second debt? The first one was hard as it is but it’s not going to get any easier. Each debt brings her closer to her death but will she succeed in her escape/ revenge plan? I highly doubt it, these Hawks are way too cunning for her to deal with. This story is just so unique, I mean every word I speak! I cannot recommend it enough.

Nila looked over her shoulder, daring me with flames in her eyes. ‘I hate you.’ Her words slammed me back to earth, her fire some how giving me back my ice. I smiled. ‘You don’t know the meaning of hate. Not yet.’
