It has been a while since I read the previous book. This book still has the tension of Rose's loves, Adrian (current) and Dmitri (past) as well as the drama from Christian and Lissa. While I think Adrian is sweet, I still hold out hope the her plan works out and she can save Dmitri, but you have to read it too to find out. This book has everything from another road trip, jail break, intrigue, death, battles, love, and friendship. I really like this series and recommend it to anyone who doesn't want a boring storyline.
