I Liked It!
In the second book of The Covenant Series by Betty Shreffler, Cruel Temptation introduces us to more characters, adds to the story of Kayci, and definitely ups the intrigue of The Covenant and where Kayci wants to take it.
Where Embrace The Dawning was more of a setup to meeting the characters and getting Kayci ready for who she was and what she was about to become, this book was full of action and so much turmoil. We really got to see Kayci take on a lot in this book and step into who she was meant to be. I loved seeing the direction she wanted to take The Covenant, and the new characters we met in this book, but I hated the heartache we had to deal with in this book, and seeing Kayci torn between Cass and Adrian and the temptation she dealt with throughout this entire book.
Watching Kayci deal with so much in this book really stressed me out, and it stressed her out as well. We got to see her push her limits and realize that maybe she can’t do everything on her own. That even though she may be the leader, she has people around her to help her, and to work with her to see her vision of the new Covenant and to set things right. We see that people aren’t always what they seem, and you can’t always trust who you think you can.
I really enjoyed where this book took us in the series, and even though my heart was torn into two many times I can’t wait to dive into the third and final book to see what happens next for Kayci and the rest of the Covenant. I have become attached to these characters and I can’t wait to see what is in store next, especially with how this book ended. If you’re looking for a series full of witches, werewolves, and vampires that will keep you on the edge of your seat, I highly suggest picking up The Covenant Series by Betty Shreffler today, this is a unique and edgy paranormal romance!
