Book Summary:
(Taken from book jacket)

Grappling with her identity as "Bridge," a being meant to herald the end for all of humanity, isn't even Allie's biggest problem. She's also coping with a whole new set of rules around her seer marriage, as well as the power-hungry Rook she helped put in the White House, who is currently doing his best to start a war with China. Then the boy appears. A sociopath with all the energetic markings of Syrimne, a highly dangerous telekinetic seer who killed thousands during World War I, he doesn't appear to have aged in over 100 years. Worse, he thinks Allie belongs to him.

Charlene's Review:

Once again, Andrijeski has a winning novel. In this second novel of the series, Allie finds herself acclimating to her role as the “Bridge” for the Seer world. Having been raised human, she struggles to understand the unusual ways of Seer culture and marriage, in a backdrop that includes deception and war.

In this second book, Allie, and her husband, Revik, while trying to stop the evil Terian from destroying the World, are also trying to consummate their marriage. In the Seer world, this is a painful and confusing time. The dance of intimacy is very detailed, and not for the erotically faint of heart. What binds them as a couple also has the ability to destroy them both.

The action is intoxicating. The appearance of the telekinetic seer boy changes all the stakes in an already unstable battle. It’s a no-holds-barred ride with an ending that I did not see coming, which left me begging for the next installment.

5 out of 5 stars!
