Amber Eyes (Children of the Blood Moon - Book 2)
by S.D. Grimm
In the aftermath of loss and betrayal, Jayden must come to terms with the fact that her fight with the enemy isn’t over. Evil rarely binds itself to one individual, and the evil that hunts Jayden--the Mistress of Shadows--has found a new pawn. One who might be the key to opening the Mistress's prison.
As the underground prison cracks, darkness seems to take hold of everyone Jayden trusts. Loss almost crippled her once, and while she isn't sure she can seal the fissure alone, pushing her friends away might be the only way to save them--and keep them from being consumed. She hopes to make the right choice because the wrong one could cost her everyone she loves.

It's a journey you will choose to continue…no matter what.
Unbelievable. That is the word I would use to describe this book. Not because the writing was bad, but OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! Like how many times is my heart going to speed up only to slow down and then accelerate again!? Do you know how many times I thought someone was about to die? Numerous. And I mean NUMEROUS. Like I have no idea how I handled this book because man, just when I thought things would be all gravy for a while, things went downhill right quick. Like who is going to even survive when all this stuff is done!? (I promise I'm breathing while writing this review and not hyperventilating of everything I just went through.) Seriously though. The author took me on another crazy adventure I didn't see coming. I was pretty upset in the beginning about how things sort of developed for one of my favorite characters and didn't expect to love this one. *hides shamefully* However, do you know what happened? The author changed my mind on a certain friendship/relationship halfway through! Like I actually had peace and was okay about the development that happened. I did NOT see that coming or even expected it! I repeat, I did NOT see that coming! Like his story is a gut wrencher, but man, good things are in store for that boy! He really is The Knight. *winks* So, I'm unsure if my thoughts make much sense here, but this story was very surprising in how I came into it and how it ended. Plus, I might have squealed a little over certain bonding of animals and characters. So. Totally. Cool. (I need to ask the author when I can bond with an animal like that!) I recommend the series, though be forewarned that you will be on an up-and-down adventure, begging for a break, only to *choose* (and I mean literally choose) to willingly go back into the story. *I have provided an honest review after having received an ARC from the author.
