**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**
Samantha digs a little deeper to find out about her witchy past. What she discovers sends her world and her magic into overdrive. She discovers secret realms and begins to uncover a truth she always somewhat anticipated. While she is half Bruxa--a light witch, something more sinister may lay claim to her other half.
After the stone curse wears off and Jade returns to Cadiza to assert her rule and Blythe, the dark magic ruler makes a plea for her help, Samantha is forced to choose a side. Should she embrace the known? A life that she's loved and revered since birth. Or does she stay true to her tenacious vendetta against the Elders council for their tyrannical ways?
Swaying her decision is her omnipresent match, Xander and the very human love of her life, Malakai. With both men still vying for her affections, Samantha has bold decisions to make. She has to make them quickly as time is running out. The threat of war between light and dark witches is scary, but the fact that magic is bleeding into the human world is disastrous. Will Samantha be swayed by her heart or her head?
First let me start by saying that if you haven't read the first book in the series Escaped, you should definitely check it out. Here is a link to Amazon. It was a great start to the series. And I will try not to put any spoilers in my review for Embraced. ;)
Samantha is trying to find some peace and quiet in her new life after the whole mess that happened in Cadiza. While she knew it would be short lived she still did the best she could do with Malakai. They had everything planned out and were going to get ahead of the Patrol. Malakai leaves Samantha to go do some investigating and while he is gone she takes a trip to the Dark Realm and can't believe what she sees. She's been lied to her entire life, what she thought she knew, no longer mattered. When she returns to Cadiza to confront Jade, she's thrown threw another loop, she finds it in total disarray and in the middle of a rebellion.
Samantha is torn between Light & Dark and needs to make a decision, but who can she trust?
Embraced was a great read! At first it was a little slow, but then once the ball starts rolling, I quickly found myself at the end with a big OMG! What a cliffhanger, I literally screamed NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, my daughter thought I was having a melt down lol. Book 3 cannot come fast enough, lol.
