Life and death, light and dark, spirit and flesh-on Wormwood Island, the lines are always blurred. For Anne Merchant, who has been thrust back into this eerily secretive world, crossing the line seems inevitable, inescapable, destined.Now, as Ben finds himself battling for the Big V and Teddy reveals the celestial plan in which Anne is entwined, Anne must choose: embrace her darkly powerful connection to a woman known as Lilith and, in doing so, save the boy she loves...or follow a safer path that is sure to lead to Ben's destruction at the hands of dark leaders. Hoping the ends will justify the means, Anne starts down the slippery slope into the underworld, intent on exploring the dark to find the light. But as the lure of Lilith proves powerfully strong, will Anne save others-only to lose herself?
It seemed as though this one took a little time catching my attention. This one introduces us to a lot of new characters and also reveals some ugly truths about old characters. We find out who to trust and who not to trust in this one. It took me a while to get into this. It wasn't until I got to page 170 or so where it really started to grab my attention to where I didn't want to put it down.
What started out as a 3-star and started to slowly move down to a DNF quickly regained momentum for me and soared right into a 4-star rating. This has a great cast of characters and great story once you can get past the slow beginning.
