While traveling to Fren, Allyssa and Odar are hijacked by a ruthless assassin who divulges a stunning secret that changes everything.
Trying to come to terms with this newfound revelation, Allyssa is taken to Russek and delivered into the hands of a malicious and twisted royal family. She finds herself an unwilling pawn in a risky political game that will either end with her death or the annihilation of her beloved kingdom. Unsure of where the lies end and the truth begins, she must survive the brutal family and escape the fortified castle, all the while coming to grips with her feelings for Odar.
In a kingdom filled with darkness, Allyssa enters a game where one wrong move means death, secrets hide around each corner, and it will take every ounce of cunning she has to survive.
Since the explosive ending for Cage of Deceit, I have been anxiously waiting to find out what would happen to Allyssa and Odar. Rest assured, there is no second book slump in this series. From the beginning moments, Cage of Darkness is action packed and never relents. I couldn’t even bother to sleep, staying up late into the night to finish. There are numerous plot twists and alliances are constantly shattered and realigned. Cage of Darkness represents everything I enjoy in a YA fantasy series.
“Always remember, you are the leader of your own destiny.”
Cage of Darkness is darker and more intense than anything I’ve read from Jennifer Davis. After the initial shock wore off, I was left feeling impressed. Allyssa was a tough heroine in Deceit, but she delivers on an entirely new level. She has to endure countless battles and events throughout, and it only strengthens her resolve. Her chemistry with Odar is as fiery as ever. Despite the violence and more somber feel, there is still plenty of banter and emotional moments. Allyssa continues to develop into a strong leader for her kingdom, and I especially admired her attitude in the closing moments.
“I’m not the girl I was before I came here. This place has changed me.”
I cannot wait for the third installment of this series. All of my ships have sunk and my theories blown to pieces, but I relish truly not knowing what will happen next. If you are a YA fantasy fan, I recommend trying Reign of Secrets.
