To complicate matters, Cassie owes Evan her life, making it difficult for her to deny him anything he really wants. And he wants her. Sparks fly when they team up to find two girls missing from summer camp, but long-buried secrets may ruin their hopes for happiness. Book 2 in the Cassie Scot Mystery series.
Amidst the magic and wonderment of this tale is the story of a young girl trying to succeed on her own terms, to be who she wants to be. Amsden has taken a brilliantly unique and captivating route to bring this story forward. It’s a heart-warming tale, even if it does have some heartbreaking moments and a heart shattering ending. That said, hope still shines through. By melding various prophecies together you can hold on to this hope – not only for a happy ending but for the sequel itself.
Overall, this was an entertaining tale that is fun for all ages. It’s a brilliant story (and series) that will stand the test of time. I, for one, can’t wait for more from this brilliant author.
