Maze (Ballerina #2) by Ursula Sinclair
There are times in life when you have to make decisions that others will neither understand nor forgive. When that happens, then you make damn sure they never find out. But no matter what, you will do anything to protect those you love. Even if it means you forfeit your soul.
He’s keeping something from me. And I’m not sure I want to know because it will forever change us.
This love story could be epic, spanning years of these characters' lives, if only there was even more depth. As is, it's a beautiful story though with interesting characters that a compelling story line. There's love, loss, heartbreak, illness, suspense, betrayal and redemption. Those are some powerful elements.
Maze was as strong as Ivy was weak. And while I loved Maze's strength, I wanted to see more growth in Ivy as she entered into this new world with Maze. Maybe that happened in the years between the ending and the epilogue. Or maybe she's just the kind of girl Maze needed. Regardless, their relationship was quite sweet as he tried to protect her from his world. And he proved, he would do absolutely anything for her. Who wouldn't adore a man like that?
There were some grammatical errors I wish her proofreader had caught but nothing that kept me from enjoying the book. And hallelujah, this cover was so much better than the first!
If the author ever elected to combine the two books, flesh out the years a bit more to go deeper into the Triad/ Tong, this could be absolutely epic. I'd read it all over again. Maze and Ivy prove opposites attract, and while it wasn't the focus, they also prove inter-racial relationships work in romance.
