Agnes, Cecelia, and Lucy watched as Sebastian sacrificed himself for what he believed in. Will the girls trust that their destiny as saints and martyrs and perform the miracles as Sebastian instructed? Or lose faith in themselves and each other in his absence? Time is running out for them to make a decision, and the fate of the world lies in the balance.
I found this book just as exciting as the first installment to the series. I really enjoyed the development of the plot as well as the twists and revelations within the plot. The feel of the book matches the plot really well, just like the first book. I think that the author did such an amazing job with the setting and emotional description that pulls the audience alongside the characters throughout the story. I haven’t read a lot of “dark”- ish themed books (althoughI’m trying to get myself into, hence, this review) only due to the lack of supply of the genre at the local bookstore, and after reading this, I would really love to read more novels with the similar genre.
Anyways, I love how the characters really developed in this installment. I enjoyed reading about how they cope as they come to terms with their fate/destiny. They all seem relateable in a way. Although I was very sad that Sebastian was gone :(.
Overall, I thought that this was such an exciting book! If I had a lot of free time on my hands, I think I would’ve devoured this book in a day or two 🙂 Ms. Tonya Hurley did such a good job with this book. I felt that it definitely lived up to the first installment of the book. Such an amazing read!
