Determined to live a dark life in the company of the assassin who freed her from bondage, Sarai sets out on her own to settle a score with an evil sadist. Unskilled and untrained in the art of killing, the events that unfold leave her hanging precariously on the edge of death when nothing goes as planned.
Sarai’s reckless choices send her on a path she knows she can never turn back from and so she presents Victor with an ultimatum: help her become more like him and give her a fighting chance, or she’ll do it alone no matter the consequences. Knowing that Sarai cannot become what she wants to be overnight, Victor begins to train her and inevitably their complicated relationship heats up.
As Arthur Hamburg’s right-hand man, Willem Stephens, closes in on his crusade to destroy Sarai, she is left with the crushing realization that she may have bitten off more than she can chew. But Sarai, taking on the new and improved role of Izabel Seyfried, still has a set of deadly skills of her own that will prove to be all she needs to secure her place beside Victor.
But there is one test that Izabel must face that has the potential to destroy everything she is working so hard to achieve. One final test that will not only make her question her decision to want this dangerous life, but will make her question everything she has come to trust about Victor Faust.
Reviving Izabel begins with us seeing Sarai eight months from when the first book took place. She's living a "normal" life now that she's away from Victor. But the problem is Sarai just doesn't fit in anymore. She is different now, and she's constantly faking it with the people around her. But when she gets the opportunity to try to kill a man she believes needs to die she jumps at the chance. But that's when all of her problems begin. Victor ends up rescuing her from her horrible attempt at trying to kill someone. And now he's bringing her into the fold, but Sarai has to pass several tests before he is going to fully trust her. But lets hope she can withstand all of those tests before they end up breaking her...
I loved this book. It was very good. I felt like it was a lot better than the first one. First off I love learning that Sarai is a lot smarter than she actually lets one. Second, I loved getting to see Victors POV in this book, it made it that much better. Then there is the fact that Sarai is actually trying to fit into Victor's fold, not just in his bed, but in his business as well. I really thought Sarai, and Victor were amazing together. And as soon as I started this book I couldn't put it down, I was constantly on edge wondering what was going to happen next. Then the ending was just perfect as well. It was in it's own way a happily ever after!
