Summary

The second novel in New York Times best-selling author Jeaniene Frost's Broken Destiny series finds Ivy and Adrian rekindling their alliance - and passion - as the struggle for the fate of the world begins.

Conquering a supernatural realm turned out to be easier than getting over a broken heart. But her initial victory has made Ivy a target for revenge, forcing her to reunite with the dangerous - and dangerously sexy - Adrian. Ivy isn't sure which will be harder: finding the hallowed weapon that will repair the crumbling walls between the demon and human realms or resisting Adrian, who's decided that, come hell or high water, he will make Ivy his.

At first Adrian tried to resist his feelings for Ivy. Now, determined to break the curse that dooms their love, he's vowed to save her and to have her. If only he can persuade her to forgive his past sins. But defying destiny - and surrendering to the smoldering desire between them - will bring consequences and sacrifices they never imagined.

Angles good demon bad?

For a romance novel with a half demon guy as the love interest it’s a bit too Christian for me. The angles are good and the demons are evil the end. To me this lacks depth and originality I’ve never like character to be pure evil just because.

Wasn't worth the wait.

This book was supposed to be published last year but for some reason it was pushed back until now. I wish I could say it was worth the wait but it wasn't. The story is okay but not great and I found myself becoming increasingly annoyed by Ivy. To be honest I found most of the characters rather tiresome as the story continued. Will probably read the next book in the series just to see how the story ends but I certainly won't be expecting much.

So Entertaining

'm a sheep.... baaaaaah! I'm so mad at myself for letting the negative reviews that I read for this series get into my head. I know Jeaniene Frost is an awesome story teller and writes bad a$$ heroines but I doubted her greatness. That's all on me. I think because I put her on a pedestal after falling in love with Bones (and Kat) that I was scared she wasn't going to live up to my expectations. I had to remember there's only one Kat and Bones and this is a different story and a different world all together and go in reading this as if it was a completely different author. I can't keep comparing all books to the Night Huntress series which is what I do!! So I bit the bullet and started listening to this series and I fell in love. I can't relate to the negative reviews at all. Ok maybe I can with one. It said that it ended abruptly and there was no epilogue to book 3. I agree with that comment but I'm hoping it's because we are going to find a follow up story to them in a future anthology. When I read a book I love when the h/H meet right away and then they are physically together for the majority of the book. That's what happened here. I also like that that action starts right away and again that's what happened here. The storyline was very interesting. Sometimes it was funny and sometimes it was sad.it was a perfect balance. There isn't any fluff or filler just to make the story longer. I hate when that happens. I think Ivy was a very strong character and although I wanted to strangle her at times, I totllay get her. And Adrian?? I loved his little lying demonic self. i listened to this whole series in 3 days and now that I'm finished I don't know what to listen to that'll be just as good. Oh yeah, one last thing. I can't remember if the sex scenes were descriptive or not but the story was so good that you wouldn't miss them if they weren't. If you are looking for an entertaining read and love paranormal than read/listen to this book. You won't be disappointed.

Narration to fast

For a better listening experience play this story at a lower speed. Feels like the narrator was in a hurry to finish her tale.

I thought I was listening to Vlad again....

I was so disappointed with this book. I'm obsessed with Jeanine Frost and her books. But this one fell short for me. For starters Adrian's accent was changed and it sounded identical to what Tavia Gilbert used as Vlad Tepesh' voice. It was hard getting past that. But also this book was boring. I'm hoping she's just setting it up for an AMAZING 3rd book.

THIS WAS BETTER THAN BOOK 1!

Any additional comments?

This was much better than book 1....but still no Cat and Bones... Ivy and Adrian are good together, but Ivy and her sister are really whiny...and I would like to see them toughen up a bit...sure they are in constant danger and there is a lot going on...but still toughen up..you are a savior ACT LIKE ONE!! I am interested in see where this goes....but I want more Warrior Princess...and less whiny sorority girl....Solid 3.5 for story 5+ for narration Tavia never disappoints me!!!

Sweetest Burn

I am really enjoying this series.
It is different than I am used to and Ivy is a pretty dope character.
I liked that this book didn’t start after book 1, sometimes not a lot but some has passed and I felt that brought more to the story by doing that than anything else really.

Adrian really steps up in this book and this is where I feel for the HERO finally. He showed Ivy he was all in and that part well it was my favorite hands down.
This book had just as much action as book 1 so there never really were dead spots and that kept me interested. I am looking forward to book 3.

Tavia does another great job with the narration.

Main character overracts and panics..

There is too much Ivy hysteria in this book. it appeared in 1st book..but in this book it really became annoying. Narrator almost yelling to convey overracted drama. Even Jasmine is always whining .I won't be reading the 3rd book. Very seldom do I stop a series uncompleted.

I see by Jeaniene Frost and it a must get.

As always Jeaniene and Tavia did it again. All of her books are great, and Tavia reads them wonderfully. I can't wait for the next book in the series.
