~Synopsis~

But can she harness them in time to confront a new chain of events that threatens to change everything? Caroline has finally accepted her life as a witch, but when a stranger comes into her life she's forced to question her family loyalty. The sisters are thrown together to protect a young girl from the enemy determined to hunt her down. Can they save her -- and themselves?  

~My Review~

First of all Jillian's sister Caroline has a bigger role in this book, which I loved.  We learn more about her and she takes a wild ride, right along side her sister.
Caroline must take a trip to New York to end her marriage with Jack.  She wants it done and over with.  Little does she know while she is out with some girlfriends, Sabine, (one of the villains in the last book) is also out amongst Caroline's friends.  Caroline panics and calls William and Jilly.  They catch the soonest flight to New York worried about what Sabine might do with Caroline.
In the meantime Katya, Nikolai's girlfriend is missing and they all believe Sabine has her.  They all decide to trap Sabine and use Caroline to get them into Sabine's home.
It works and Sabine confronts Caroline after her meet up with Jack.  Sabine takes Caroline back to her home where she plans on imprisoning them. There she discovers Katya.  Soon after Jilly, William and Nikolai bust in and rescue the women.  They find pictures of Jack and Caroline, Katya and a young girlThey don't know who the young girl is, but they soon find out.
Jilly has the power to teleport and that night she teleports to London where she finds the girl.  Her name is Hannah and they exchange very little words.  Jilly awakens and tells William they have to get to London to find Hannah.
They find Hannah and bring her home with them.  She has been alone for six months, the shadow wraiths killed her parents and had been after Hannah ever since.
They get back to the states to discover Caroline is acting shady and soon find out that she is involved with William's brother Patrick.  You will want to read book one to fully undersand Patrick and the relationship with the two brothers.  This causes some friction between Jilly and Caroline.  Jilly only knows the bad side of Patrick and Caroline is learning he isn't so bad after all.
Jilly's abilities are stronger than ever and she learns more of what she can do.  It makes the storyline that much more fun.  She is a bad ass to put it mildly and by far my favorite character.
Hannah's real father is revealed....finding out who it is....makes the story even more interesting.
We also find out who the main villain is behind this whole masterminded plan.  
Jessica captivates us and brings so much more to the second book.  It is magical, electrifying and leaves you wanting more.  The last chapter of the book impressed me beyond words.  I now cannot wait to see what Jessica has in store for Jilly, William and the rest of the cast.
I was already a fan of the witch realm, but Jessica brings so much fun and magic into these books, you are left breathless and in need of your next fix.

I give this book 5 NarlyNut Stars
