This is the second book in Donna Augustine’s Ollie Wit series. It is written in first person from Olivia “Ollie” Wit’s POV.
SPOILER ALERT: There will be spoilers regarding the first book in the series. Read at your own risk.
Three months have passed since the first book. Asher has somehow escaped the Shadowlands. He has helped Ollie navigate the Shadowlands multiple times and now he is dependent upon her. He doesn’t know how to live in the human world. Kane wouldn’t understand, he would want to kill Asher, so Ollie leaves him and the Underground without a word. She has 10 million dollars, she can do this.
In three months Ollie is out of money. After trying to help Shadow Walkers, and dealing with Asher’s costly ways, she seeks out Kane hoping she can Shadow Walk with him again and get some money. Too bad Kane isn’t interested. She needs to seek alternate options.
Along the way she gets kidnapped by some leprechauns interrogating her for something they believe she stole. This leads to Kane coming to her to see about some Shadow Walking. Some items have gone missing, and they need Ollie to locate them. Too bad these items lead to Asher as the top suspect.
Once again, another great book. There are some solid surprises in here that you don’t see coming. Ollie and Kane coming back together for a working relationship strike off some sparks, but it is fantastic to watch unfold.
My one issue with this book is that Ollie seems to take a step back with her strength from the first book. Maybe it has to do with now wanting to live, but being terrified of the emotions that brings. She’s still awesome to experience, but there are some times where you want to go, “where’s your courage, girl?” But I still loved it. This book also had one of the best endings I’ve ever experienced. Made me keep coming back just to read it.
Looking forward to seeing what happens next in the series.
