The day she met him, Emmy thought she was meant to be with Cale Cruz. After discovering her blood was the cure to the curse his family had suffered generation after generation, she knew it was true. Now Emmy is the center of an ancient battle between vampires and Maldito, a race of half-vampire, half-humans, and is fighting for her own life.
Betrayed and alone, Emmy will co The day she met him, Emmy thought she was meant to be with Cale Cruz. Betrayed and alone, Emmy will come face to face with the enemy, and the lines will blur. Caught between good and evil, she will have to make a decision which side she is on. Will her love for Cale help her to stay in the light or will her taste of darkness send her spiraling out of control to a place where no one can reach her?
With each passing moment a choice is not made, the possibilities for disaster grow. But as we know, when love is stronger than death, anything is possible. Kindle Edition , pages.

Sep 03, Lexie rated it it was amazing Shelves: One of my main complaints after reading the first book in the Maldito Series, Emmy's Song, was that character development in general and Emmy and Cale's relationship in particular was rushed and not well fleshed out.
In the second book, Emmy's Heart, we get all of that and then some. For Emmy a lot happened in a relatively short period of time in the first book; a new boy moved to the area, her best friend was killed and vampires turned out to be real.

Not only that but she was the cure for the M One of my main complaints after reading the first book in the Maldito Series, Emmy's Song, was that character development in general and Emmy and Cale's relationship in particular was rushed and not well fleshed out. Not only that but she was the cure for the Maldito, the cursed half-human, half-vampire defenders of humanity.
And Cale loved her and theirs was an epic love. Things don't get easier in this second installment. Still reeling from her friend's death, desperately trying to find some normalcy in her chaotic life otherwise, Emmy is given a brief respite during the holidays when all or at least a significant portion of her family shows up to stay at her house. For a few days all is fine with the world, or at least Emmy can make believe that, and all she is really worried about is her boyfriend Cale getting along with her family.
Reality comes crashing down barely a day later and from there it just goes downhill for poor Emmy. Throughout her hostage situation Emmy keeps a fairly level head all things considered, plus a sense of dry humor that I certainly appreciated. Her captor, Nathaniel the 'master' mentioned in the first book is a curious blend of courteousness, cruelty and delusional insanity. It was hard for me to truly hate him, since what he did he did for his twisted version of 'love' and if put into context for just about any other vampire romance novel he would be the hero of the story not the villian.
He just unfortunately tried to come between the epic love of Emmy and Cale.
Character development was a big factor of this book. Emmy and Cale had a more solid and realistic relationship brewing between them--complete with arguments, disagreements and a fair dose of uncertainty at times. The Emmy of this book was also a more mature girl, though in some ways more reckless with her safety.
Their future together is discussed, in relation to his impending job and her aspirations for her own career, but they find a balance eventually. Chris, who spent most of the first book acting like a jealous ex-boyfriend towards Cale and Emmy, comes clean about what was up with all that. Him and Cale are best of friends now, almost too close to Emmy's annoyance as they make plans about her without her at times.
I appreciated that instead of making Chris bitter or angry about Emmy and Cale he is genuinely happy for them and is distressed when things are not kosher between them. To be fair there is a higher level of sensuality in this book than is present in most young adult novels today. Great review: Aparajita Le' Grande Codex. I agree about needing a recap after previous books, but it's always interesting to see where different authors draw the line and how much "breath" they give you between plots in a series.
I'm glad to hear the series is still going strong for those who love it I never really got into it myself. Post a Comment We love your comments! Posted by Reading Lark October 06, The Fate of Ten Lorien Legacies 6.
The Picture of Dorian Gray
By: Pittacus Lore. Published By: HarperCollins. Publication Date: September 1, Source: Purchased by Reviewer. Young Adult - Fantasy. Review of Book 2: The Power of Six. Review of Book 3: The Rise of Nine. Review of Book 4: The Fall of Five. Review of Book 5: The Revenge of Seven. The Fate of Ten is another great addition to the Lorien Legacies series. It picks up right after the previous book in the series, with barely a breath taken between the two. This is actually a bit of an issue for me as I needed a recap!
I think this series will be best read when complete, and I can't wait for that day - I expect to zoom through it on a really fun reread. Until then, I will continue to piece together the events of the previous books! With each installment, I have been convinced that the next book must be the last. The Garde have been so close to defeating Setrakus Ra so many times; this time being the closest of all.
