The immortal Seraphina is forced to face the darkness of her past—and risk losing the love of her life—in this second novel in the Incarnation series.
Seraphina has been living for centuries, thanks to a special method of alchemy, but only recently has she really felt alive. She’s finally broken free from her controlling boyfriend, Cyrus, and after years of swapping bodies to preserve her immortality, is happily settled into a life worth sticking with. Because in this life, she has Noah.
But Noah might not be as trustworthy as he seems. After he delivers an ominous message that could only come from Cyrus, Sera is worried that her new friends and family will find out her secret. And as her suspicions extend beyond Noah, Sera is forced to wonder about her new friends as well: Could her old coven be disguising themselves right under her nose?
Will Sera have to move to another body—and take another life—or can she find a way to keep what she’s got, forever?
The Alchemy of Forever ended on a cliffhanger. That meant that I really wanted to read this book! And yeah, this was full of spine chilling moments, and scary notes left all over town-and the fear that anyone that Sera met, could be Cyrus in disguise.
I loved how the plots were just there, right within reach, if I could just get closer to them, think more carefully about it, but that the need to know what was going to happen next was more overpowering then that, to the point where the pages were just flying!
I absolutely loved Sera and Noah's relationship, because hey, boy next door, and because he's not Cyrus, the controlling jerkface who Sera's been with for centuries, and this thing with Noah is nice and new, and not tarnished by the fact that taking a new body means that the old one dies.
I loved how things wrapped up, because they wrapped up in such a way that there are some loose threads, that we could be getting a 3rd book, which would be incredibly great, but that this can also be the end of the series, if it has to (which I hope not!)
Really enjoyed this book, it was just an amazing and entertaining book!
