Blurb (from Goodreads):
IN A WARPED HEAVEN, SHE MUST CHOOSE HER FATE: OBEDIENCE OR REBELLION
The Ceruleans: mere mortals infused with power over life and death. Five books; one question: If the might of the heavens were in your hands, would you be sinner or saint?
When Scarlett Blake chose life-after-death as a Cerulean, she expected to grieve for all she left behind: her boyfriend, her best friend, her mother, her home. But at least Cerulea, her heaven, would be… well, heavenly. Right?
The world in which Scarlett awakens is very far from her idea of a utopia. Picturesque, sure, and serene. But there can be no paradise within the unforgiving walls of a prison, be they of cold, hard stone or beautifully blue water.
Now Scarlett faces her hardest decision yet: be a good, dutiful Cerulean, or be true to herself and fight for freedom.
And if she can find a way to escape, what then? Can she finally reunite with her lost sister? Can she save Sienna from the murderous Fallen? Can she evade her destiny with the Ceruleans?
Can Scarlett Blake ever reclaim her life-before-death… or must she let go of all she loves?
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“You said I could save her, Sienna. She’s at the heart of everything. She’s what matters most now. We have to get to her.”
This was a really good instalment in this series, and I loved the ending!
Scarlett got a rough deal in this book, especially when she found out what her life would be like with the Ceruleans. Their expectations were hardly reasonable, and the fact that she would have to leave Luke behind made things even worse for her.
The storyline in this was again about finding Sienna, but we also got quite a bit of back story with regards to the Ceruleans, and also got to find out what life on the island was like, and about the day-to-day workings of the Ceruleans as well which was enlightening.
We did get a little bit of romance at the end, but because Scarlett and Luke were apart we didn’t get much.
The ending to this was really good, and it will be interesting to see what happens in books 4 and 5.
