Its multilayered plot makes it unpredictable.(...) What I really love about this tale is how the characters grow and develop as the story progresses. Levicorpvs Blog
The plot of the story, though heavy with action and magic, is actually a love story at its core. [...] It's easy to jump in with this second book, like I did. The setting of Whyland is fun and interesting world that will stand out among your other YA fantasy reads. The plot is fast paced and will keep you glued in until the end. Sarah Foil
It can definitely be read as a standalone. All said, it was an enjoyable book. Lots of YA romance. Rosie Rizk (Goodreads)

Greedy, cunning, and selfish, Sian is not someone to be trusted. But when Karina is called to break his spell with a kiss, she accepts it.
She’s smart enough not to fall in love—or at least to tell herself not to.
But risking a broken heart is the smallest of her problems. Sian’s been enchanted in a mysterious, ancient castle where dark magic has been awakened. And now Karina’s being hunted by strange, creepy creatures and has no idea why.
Sian offers to keep her safe and deal with the castle and its dark magic once and for all. If Karina wants to find answers, she'll have to trust him—despite knowing well that he’s no hero.
She’ll also have to return to that castle and face dangerous magic. And spend time with Sian. He’s hiding secrets, he might be lying to her, but he’s also making sure she’s safe. Her mind tells her one thing, and yet her heart feels another.
Which one should she trust?
