Torn between duty and survival, nothing can be the same.

Everything Ivy Morgan thought she knew has been turned on its head. After being betrayed and then nearly killed by the Prince of the Fae, she’s left bruised and devastated—and with an earth-shattering secret that she must keep at all costs. And if the Order finds out her secret, they’ll kill her.

Then there’s Ren Owens, the sexy, tattooed Elite member of the Order who has been sharing Ivy’s bed and claiming her heart. Their chemistry is smoking hot, but Ivy knows that Ren has always valued his duty to the Order above all else—he could never touch her if he knew the truth. That is, if he let her live at all. Yet how can she live with herself if she lies to him?

But as the Fae Prince begins to close in, intent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld, Ivy is running out of options. If she doesn’t figure out who she can trust—and fast—it’s not only her heart that will be torn apart, but civilization itself.

Review

Ah yes, book 2 in the Wicked series is complete! And there’s just more questions, some new information about the fae world, plus The Prince brings a whole new meaning to creepy.

We’ve got the group all back together and Torn was just full of twists and surprises. And we get to see Ivy’s vulnerable side even deeper than we witness in Wicked. The book picks up right where the last one ended, so I was quite thankful that too much time didn’t pass between both books.

Ivy faces so much in this, dealing with her new reality of what she is, the betrayal of her best friend, trying to avoid The Prince at all costs, and keeping secrets from the one person who could literally break her if all is revealed.

The fae world in this trilogy is definitely intriguing me completely. In Wicked, we view them as the bad guys, ones you can’t trust and who just want to suck the life out of you. In Torn, we learn more about faes, well another side to them. And the reality that not all of them are bad! Talk about plot twist and I’m just dying to know more.

OK, now let’s talk about The Prince, which we definitely know his name, but I’m not going to spoil that because I’m loving it. Yes, he’s downright creepy and he needs to work on how he says…certain things. But I can’t quite pin my finger on him, I don’t exactly hate the guy. I should because he’s definitely a deadly arrogant/a**hole, but I have a hunch that he isn’t entirely bad. However, I’m probably crazy and have him totally wrong.

I’m still completely hooked on this series and will be diving into Brave right away. Absolutely can’t wait to read the conclusion, although I’m a bit nervous since I have no idea how everything will play out.

Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.

Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.

Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.

But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.

s y n o p s i s

Ivy Morgan hasn’t been feeling like herself lately. Not like anyone can blame her. After all, being held captive by a psychotic fae prince hell-bent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld is bound to leave some mental scars.

It’s more than that, though. Something dark and insidious is spreading throughout Ivy, more powerful than she could ever imagine… and it’s coming between her and the man she’s fallen deeply in love with, elite Order member Ren Owens.

Ren would do anything to keep Ivy safe. Anything. But when he makes a life altering choice for her, the fallout of his act has far reaching consequences that threaten to tear their lives apart.

If Ivy is going to have any hope of surviving this, she must put aside the hurt and betrayal she feels, and work with not only those she loves, but with an enemy she would rather kill than ever trust. War is coming, and it soon becomes clear that what Ivy and Ren thought they knew about the Order, themselves, and even their enemies, has been nothing but a cluster of dangerous, deadly lies.

Ivy knows she must be more than just brave to save those she loves–and, ultimately, to save herself.

Because behind every evil fae Prince, there’s a Queen….
