Synopsis from Goodreads:
Only one key can unlock the secret...My Rating: ★★★★★
After discovering her true heritage and rescuing her sister, Ramsey Wilder is finally adjusting to life in the Elf Realm. She still has a lot to learn though, especially about her new power, which makes her start in ability school extremely convenient. But even as she immerses herself in school life, the secret she has yet to learn continues to linger in the back of her mind, as well as thoughts of Finn and his dangerous promise to return. And with Stellan away at war and Zora acting strange, Ramsey has no one to turn to but Nathan, an elf from school with much more to him than spells and a sarcastic sense of humor – one that Ramsey can't help but gravitate toward. And as danger reenters Ramsey's life, the terror and mystery only brings them closer together, threatening her future with Stellan and jeopardizing her relationship with her sister.
Ramsey can't lie to herself forever about what – and who – she truly desires, but is she ready for more changes to be a part of her already uncertain future? In this thrilling second installment, the key to Ramsey's secret may very well also unlock the secrets to her heart.
Quote(s) I Like:
"We spent the entire time learning about important elves in history who had powers of the mind. Lord Clark said it was necessary to know the history of our power. But if I had wanted history, I would have stayed in first period." - Ramsey
"Those who are hungry for power ingnore all family ties." - Lady Celine
"When using a spell, be careful not to acacidentally direct the hand signals at yourself. Keep your hands outstretched before you and not close to your body. Otherwise, the spell will be performed on you. You do not want to see what happens when you try to unlock yourself." - Rosina
"Now I finally have a choice of my own. And I'm choosing to separate myself from the limitations of my past -- all the decisions that were decided for me, not by me. I'm sure you can understand that, Ramsey." - Zora
"Just go Ellie, leave. Leave before the anger returns and I can't let you go. Because killing you would make me a monster too. So go before I change my mind and kill you just so you'll finally shut up." - Ramsey
(which eventually closes because teachers with high status are needed for the war)
