Torn between duty and survival, nothing can be the same.

Everything Ivy Morgan thought she knew has been turned on its head. After being betrayed and then nearly killed by the Prince of the Fae, she’s left bruised and devastated—and with an earth-shattering secret that she must keep at all costs. And if the Order finds out her secret, they’ll kill her.

Then there’s Ren Owens, the sexy, tattooed Elite member of the Order who has been sharing Ivy’s bed and claiming her heart. Their chemistry is smoking hot, but Ivy knows that Ren has always valued his duty to the Order above all else—he could never touch her if he knew the truth. That is, if he let her live at all. Yet how can she live with herself if she lies to him?

But as the Fae Prince begins to close in, intent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld, Ivy is running out of options. If she doesn’t figure out who she can trust—and fast—it’s not only her heart that will be torn apart, but civilization itself.

My thoughts…

Torn begins directly where Wicked (my review) left off, Ivy is still struggling with the secret that she is a halfling, half faerie and half human. She is not sure who to trust with this information. Now that the Fae Prince, Drake, has come through the gates, he needs a halfling to create an “apocalypse” baby to open the gates to the Fae world permanently. The Order and the Elite want the halfling dead. Ivy is put in an impossible situation and has no idea what to do, she is scared to death that if she tells Ren he'll leave her and will have to kill her.

“You cannot let anyone know what you are.” “Gee. Really? I was thinking about updating my Facebook to halfling status.” He cocked his blondish-white head to the side. “You don’t have a Facebook, Ivy.” I sighed. Tink continued, because of course. “I looked for you. Wanted to add you as my friend so I could poke you, and I know people don’t poke anymore, but I think poking is a great way to express how one—”

I really liked Wicked, unfortunately, Torn didn't compare to the first book at all and I was a little disappointed by that. This story seemed way too predictable and not very much happened. We did get to see the creepiness of the Fae Prince, I expected him to meaner for an evil Prince. I was also disappointed that we didn’t get more interactions between Ren and Ivy, they were apart most of the book. Tink becomes an even more interesting character as he reveals his extraordinary secret, I missed him in this book.

I’m very much looking forward to the third book, Brave, expected publication: December 2017.

“I was not alone in any of this. I was only a little torn, but not broken. “Yeah,” I said. “I’ll be okay.” And I was brave.”
