Age Group: Young Adult
Summary: Life is almost back to normal for Harper Price. The Ephors have been silent after their deadly attack at Cotillion months ago, and her best friend, Bee, has returned after a mysterious disappearance. Now Harper can focus on the important things in life: school, canoodling with David (her nemesis-turned-ward-slash-boyfie), and even competing in the Miss Pine Grove pageant.
Unfortunately, supernatural chores are never done. The Ephors have decided they’d rather train David than kill him. The catch: Harper has to come along for the ride, but she can’t stay David’s Paladin unless she undergoes an ancient trial that will either kill her . . . or make her more powerful than ever.
My Thoughts: I really remembering liking the first one in this series so I was hoping I would like the second one. And I did.
We are back with Harper and her crazy life. She is still guarding David, her newish boyfriend who also has come into some of his own powers and identity. And, than there is Bea. Sweet best friend Bea who might also end up protecting David someday.
I don’t think this one was as great as the first even though I did like it. I just love Harper’s banter and her wicked sense of humor. But I did like how Harper competes in the Miss Pine Grove Pageant even though a lot of the story does focus on that.
I think this is definitely worth reading and if you liked the first one you’ll be glad to be back with all the characters and back into their world.
Overall: I still really like David. Just something about him draws me in. And I still like the way Harper and David get a long. If there is a third one, I’ll be picking up. This one is probably more a of a 3.5 cupcake rating for me.
Cover: Like it. It fits with the story pretty perfectly!
What I’d Give It:
