Summary: (from Goodreads)
Not many Scorpio’s are known for their patience, and Willow Haywood is no different. Her only desire is to love Landen Chambers and redeem the lost souls of Esterious, but the path to that desire is long, dark and dangerous...
Before Willow’s life had a chance to balance the sudden revelations and grief she had to endure to get to Chara a disturbing discovery is made. A photo, one that shows Willow blissfully embracing the flawless image of Drake Blakeshire; giving her not only proof that she had lived before, but that she had loved him.
Running away from the memory of Drake’s hypnotizing touch, and the prophecy set before her seemed like the logical thing to do. That is, until a dark dream reignites her passion to save the hopeless dimension of Esterious. Willow struggles to find patience – to learn everything she needs to know before she faces Drake again, but her eagerness is dangerous and one step in the wrong direction takes everything and everyone away from her – the only way to survive this trial is for Willow to remember who she is and what she really wants out of this life. The question is….can she do that?

The Story:
We continue to follow Willow and Landen in their new lives together, with their family.
They continue to evolve their powers and learn new things about the whole story behind them.
At the same time Drake is back. Willow get closer to Drake, and things might change.
Who is the one for Willow. Drake? Landen?
And what´s the whole story behind their powers and the profety? Will they find out..

My Opinion:
Again. I liked this story :) This one was though not as fairytale like, as the first one. Landen and Willow had a more normal relationship. And actually argued, secrets etc. Like we all know from the real world. Everything was not as perfect as in the first book. And then there is Drake.. Yeap  we finally got more of him. I was missing some Drake in the first book. And I really got to like the guy in some way, curious on him. But then at the same time. I was so living this story, so when he was with Willow I was just thinking. Where the hell is Landen xD Kind of fun thinking that, since I was begging for this to come xD And then it´s so well written I get all annoyed and confused xD
Yeap.. Totally love the way these stories are written. So again I choice to give this one 5 out of 6 stars.

I kind of miss the fairytale story from the beginning. But also see that they gotta evolve and get through new stuff. And in a way I like that there is not as much sparkeling fairytale over it. Because then she didn´t overdue it :) She made the doses in the correct sizes :)

Can´t wait to see what will happen in the third book.
I can totally see this series becoming a movie.. Since I watched it all in my head while reading it :) It´s really magic looking :P hehe
