Cat Barahal and her beloved cousin Bee think they have reached a safe place to shelter. But the Cold Mages who are conspiring to take them prisoner are closing in. The warlord who hopes to conquer all Europa is convinced their destiny is to aid him, whether they want to or not. And the man Cat was forced to marry is back, as vainly arrogant and annoyingly handsome as ever.

Worst of all, as Hallows' Night approaches, powers hidden deep within the spirit world are rising. Cat must seek allies against these threats and figure out who to trust, for if she makes the wrong choices, she'll lose everything.

Only one thing is certain. When Hallows' Night comes the Wild Hunt will ride- and it feeds on mortal blood.

I didn't like this 2nd in the trilogy as much as I liked the first. There is a lot of misinformation, misdirection, and distrust happening. Seemed Long. I took a break in the middle. Then went back and finished. I am looking for the 3rd to complete the story, but feel ambivalent about finishing.

The beginning of the book was good, with the radicals and the headmaster and the poets head.
The middle of the story was set in 'Jamaica' and it was too long and drawn out. There could have been less romantic tension and rather more time spent learning about the hunt, instead of dithering over whether she loved her husband or not. Salt Island was an odd section of the story, seemingly created just so Cat could get herself seduced (in a strange manner) and the end was rushed.
Again, I love the world building but YA type romantic leanings and a less intense writing style from the author (compared to her other books) make this book only okay.
