There is an ominous darkness, one that that is so dense and mind numbing that you can feel the chills race across your skin as the energy of the hatred behind it hovers near you. They thought that it was over…that he was dead….they never imagined that he was more powerful dead than he ever was alive.
A war is on the brink of erupting in the dark dimension of Esterious, the victory Willow had a few days ago was nothing less than vague memory. With each thought she has she fights the images of Drake's dark eyes, his words… his promises. Doubt seeps into her soul as she stares forward and what could only be the hardest battle she has faced thus far.
Venus is meant to be the planet of love and peace….but when it falls into retrograde its influence changes. Matters of past relationships will surface; choices will be made with the mind and not the heart. Gateways to an evil that cannot be fathomed will open. Willow and Landen’s only defense is to hide their family away, and lock themselves in the palace that was once ruled by Donalt. The energy is heavy and dark within these walls…there is a presence that lingers and strikes at will. Cruel illusions are placed before Willow, but that is not even hardest part…what is hard is standing in room with Drake and Landen and listening to others tell you of lives that you cannot recall…for them to tell when and how you are going to die.
Every prediction and theory is about to be proven wrong…and the choice before Willow's heart holds the lives of millions at stake. The question is will be she be able to see through the illusions before her and make a choice…she can live with?
I can't tell you how glad I was to read this book, especially so close since reading Insight and Embody. And such a great book, too! A bit different then the first 2, because it's not world building, and it's not being introduced to the main bit of the plot, and they were still riding the coat-tails of the end of Embody at the start of Image. So it was different, and darker, and just amazing!
I loved what we learned in this book, because, like it says, that every prediction they'd made up to this point had been wrong, that'd was a pretty major blow. And then a lot of things just didn't really go the way they wanted them to...they had a lot of battles, both of the mind, and of the body. And some ones that I just wasn't expected-darkness. Some bad things happened, but they overcame them. And I really enjoyed that!
Loved the developments in their relationship, they grew stronger in all the trials that they endured. And where better people for it! And such breath-taking romance! Just the best!
I really enjoyed this book, so I hope you guys check it out, and her fan page on FB! Plus, there's new covers, and aren't they pretty? Image is above, and Insight and Embody are below. Just really fantastic covers! I love them!
