Scarlett is living her happy-ever-after, back in the real world. Only the ‘happy’ part is proving problematic.

For starters, there’s the isolation. Being a Cerulean among humans is fraught with risk, so her time with people can only be fleeting. Which means being with Luke but not being with Luke.

Then there’s her Cerulean light, her power over life and death. Less awesome talent, as it turns out, and more overwhelming responsibility. And it comes with rules – rules that are increasingly difficult to obey.

But what’s really pushing Scarlett to the precipice is something much bigger than herself, than her life in the cove. A force to be reckoned with:


When long-buried truths are exposed, will Scarlett keep her head above water – or will she drown in the blood-dimmed tide that is unleashed?

Short and Sweet

After Scarlett decided to leave Cerulea she has to learn to readjust to living back in the real world. Most of her days are spent in isolation, because of how humans take a lot of Ceruleans. Scarlett fills her time by trying to spend as much time as possible with Luke and her friends and also learning how to heal people.

My Thoughts

~ I felt bad for Scarlett, she couldn’t spend a lot of time with the people she loved, because of how it took her energy away and made her tired.

~ Scarlett did put herself in danger at times, she was also pushing her limits which could have killed her.

~ I liked that we did get to see Jude in this book. I liked how he helped Scarlett learn how to use her healing abilities and he also had her back when she was in danger.

~ We also got to learn more about Scarlett’s family, the Fallen, and more about Ceruleans.


I really enjoyed this book. The ending was a cliff-hanger and there’s still some unanswered questions, I can’t wait to see how things play out in the final installment Darkly, Deeply, Beautifully. I would recommend the Cerulean series.
