This breathtaking sequel to The Beholder will take you on a journey into a darkly sparkling fairy tale, perfect for fans of The Selection and Caraval.

When Selah found true love with Prince Torden of Norway, she never imagined she’d have to leave him behind. All because the Beholder’s true mission was a secret Selah’s crew didn’t trust her to keep: transporting weapons to the rebels fighting against the brutal tsarytsya, whose shadow looms over their next port of Shvartsval’d. A place Selah hoped she’d never go.

But gone is the girl who departed Potomac filled with fear. With a stockpile of weapons belowdecks and her heart hanging in the balance, Selah is determined to see the Beholder’s quest to its end.

Selah found her happily ever after—and had to leave him behind.


A storm was building.


Livestream thoughts:

Page 45: WTF isn’t Selah supposed to be in love with Torden she literally justtttt left him behind
Also, what does Lang even look like??
How old is he even?
What is even his first name?

Page 49: Seriously????? Not even a little guilt over Torden? Where’s the heartbreak? The warring feelings? How Selah is bouncing back so easily? Gross.

Page 55: Eww like that man is the king for and he married a horrid woman who treated you like shit while he stood by and allowed it. He’s the king and your father for God's sake and you care about how he feels when it’s not mutual.

A major issue I had with Book 1-THE BEHOLDER: Where’s Selah's anger towards her useless father who chose his second wife and their unborn child over her time and time again?

I DNF'd because I was super annoyed with Selah (for many reasons). However, I may pick it up in the future in hopes I get to see Torden again.


I believe in woods, mountains, highways, cobblestones, roller coasters, dancing, concerts, cherry Pop Tarts, books, and magic.
When I'm not reading or writing on my couch, I'm dragging my husband off on an adventure, snuggling my new baby daughter, communing with Salem (my kitten/spiritual familiar), or causing trouble at One More Page Books, where I work.

Happy Reading!
