Official summary: "Following the harrowing events of Elixir and Devoted — and the ceremony that almost killed Sage — Clea faces a new reality: With Sage’s soul in Nico’s body, the love of her life looks an awful lot like her best friend’s boyfriend. Can Clea and Sage really be happy under these circumstances? Clea wants to try to enjoy their new life together, but Sage is acting different — angry — and she struggles to keep her friends from finding out what has happened to him. Something is clearly haunting Sage, and Clea is losing control. Can she trust her friends with the dangerous truth, or will she have to risk losing Sage to madness?" (simonandschuster.com)

How I obtained the book: Pre-ordered for $10.98 through Amazon using a giftcard I earned using Plink.com so ultimately it was free to me.

My commentary:
  • "Note to self: When a man takes over someone else's body, probably best to brief that man on what the previous resident was like." ~ Clea
  • "When a man with memory loss says you're the most beautiful woman he's ever seen, I believe you have to take it with a grain of salt." ~ Clea
  • "If you love me, you won't let me become a monster." ~ Sage to Clea
  • "I think you believe no one but you and Sage can truly love each other in a life-altering way." ~ Rayna to Clea
  • "For Rayna, falling in love is like breathing -- she can't live without it." ~ Clea
  • "Life isn't all about Clea Raymond. The rest of us aren't extras here to fill in your life story." ~ Rayna
  • "Eternal peace is boring. Deathly boring. The living world is far more exciting." ~ Magda

Memorable quotes:
  • I was slightly disappointed to how this trilogy ended. For some reason, I'm wishing it would've ended with a sad ending instead of a happy one. I love the series overall, but I think it would've been better to end it with a really sad tragedy. I think Duff (and the person who helped her write the series) wrapped things up too nicely. The point of the series was this tragic love story that was epic and always brought heartbreak. I suppose I should be happy that Clea and Sage got a happy ending, but I think it would've been better to end up with the two of them not together... like Sage should've died. Despite that, I think Duff did an excellent job for her first series, and I hope she continues to write books like these.
