Summary

Skylenna has left the Chandelier City, the Emerald Lake Asylum, and the twisted societal restraints of women to run away with the patient everyone fears: Dessin.

As they hide in the unchartered forests surrounding the city, Skylenna learns that the mystery of the infamous patient 13 is far from over. There are still the missing pieces of her past, and a master plan that relies on Skylenna trusting Dessin with blind faith. And with each dangerous situation comes a new alter, a new personality to meet, and a new man that deepens her attraction.

It isn’t until they run into unexpected allies and ancient colonies of the forests that they learn of a reason to go back to the asylum willingly. But Skylenna doesn’t have the luxury of obtaining her old conformist position. This time around, she must accept a new role as the 12 patient of the Emerald Lake Asylum.

Simulated drownings, force-feedings, whippings, and life within the torturous cage of Demechnef. Skylenna begins to wonder how much of this game she’ll be able to endure.

Will Dessin prove she means as much to him as he does to her? Or is the master merely playing with his marionette?

This book has make me cry, laugh, scream, bite my knuckles and splash my face with cold cold water. It has amazing plot twists and character. Dark and twisted in all the right ways. It has so much , be warned .


Amazing dual narration from Amy Hall and Lance Greenfield. Wow this two bought out the plot, the darkness, the light and the heat. The characters came to life with their voices.
