Synopsis: Face the past or look to the future? Both will hurt. One could kill her.
All her life, Lily Crane has suppressed her childhood memories, masking the signs of abuse with a variety of looks. From brunette to blonde, tall to short — as a Mimic, changing shape is her gift. Her right. Her Achilles heel.
It’s Lily’s latest likeness, chosen simply by accident, which threatens to repeat a history she’s desperate to forget. Worse, she must do so without the one man who takes all her pain away: Cael Aldridge.
Cael has no intention of leaving Lily on her own. He never has. Now, with the woman he loves in the hands of a predator who wants Lily for her genetics, Cael will do everything he can to bring her home.
He can only pray he isn’t too late.
The Good: Lily Crane’s curiosity about her past is what drives her. At times, she seemed weak, but it’s one of her strengths. I grew to love her character the more I read. She’s full of self-doubt and has more confidence than she realizes, but the reader catches on pretty quick to Lily’s true nature.
The plot has enough mystery to keep you intrigued without giving away too much. I wasn’t 100% sure what was going to happen and I loved that.
While this is the second in a series, you definitely don’t need to read the first book to get into this one.
The Bad: Cael’s needed some anger management counseling.
