Blurb (from Goodreads):
STORM CLOUDS ARE GATHERING, AND THEY WILL RAIN BLOOD.
Scarlett is living her happy-ever-after, back in the real world. Only the ‘happy’ part is proving problematic.
For starters, there’s the isolation. Being a Cerulean among humans is fraught with risk, so her time with people can only be fleeting. Which means being with Luke but not being with Luke.
Then there’s her Cerulean light, her power over life and death. Less awesome talent, as it turns out, and more overwhelming responsibility. And it comes with rules – rules that are increasingly difficult to obey.
But what’s really pushing Scarlett to the precipice is something much bigger than herself, than her life in the cove. A force to be reckoned with:
When long-buried truths are exposed, will Scarlett keep her head above water – or will she drown in the blood-dimmed tide that is unleashed?
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
This was an interesting story, with some surprise twists!
Scarlett had to readjust to living back in the real world in this book, which wasn’t without its problems, especially when it limited how much time she could spend around other people. She did put herself in danger at times though, whilst trying to help people with her healing abilities.
"Time and again, I tortured myself with the thought, Could I have helped?"
The storyline in this had some quite shocking twists in it, especially with regards to Scarlett’s parents, and learning more about the Ceruleans, and I was really excited to find out more about a certain person who seemed to be following Scarlett about.
"He's been stalking you."
The ending to this was a bit of a cliff-hanger, so it will be good to see how it all ends in the final book!
