Her fall has just begun. Only his touch can save her from the shift that could destroy it all. Within my blood runs a thing our kind calls the Shadowing Disease. It shadows over, and bends everything to its will. When the first blood- shift came, it tore through flesh and blood, threatening to bend me, break bone, shatter my mind and entrap my heart with its honeyed, seductive poison. It came with vicious intent, moving my thoughts and altering me forever. The shift has caused a rift within me. No one was safe when it entrapped me in its claws of foul lust. But I have the only antidote against the evil that becomes me - his touch alone has the power to release the spurs of sweet darkness that clung on for dear life. I knew what I had to do; the desperation pulled my mind with the deep determination of a hungry predator. By the time the revelation raised me from the dark dungeon of my bounds - it might have been too late.

My Thoughts
I am loving this series more and more with each new installment Carlyle Labuschagne has a way with words and draws you in from the beginning. They always say a sequel is never better than the first and I will admit I did not know if it could get better than Book 1 Broken Destiny, but Carlyle proved me wrong when I delved into Evanescent I was amazed at how much the characters grew in this installment. My mind is blown with this amazing writing. This series should be on everyone's TBR Pile. Filled with Action, Mystery and a few twist and turns you will not be able to put this book down.
In this installment Ava must find a way to cure the disease that is running through her veins while saving her friends and loved ones from the dangers that lurk about. When the rumors of her kind slowly come to light will they help her fight the darkness growing in her or shroud her with even more questions?
