“Maybe I was stupid to have agreed to this, but when all of the options that you have in life are dangerous ones, you can only choose to do something reckless, or turn a blind eye and allow the cards to fall as they may… and I was sick of being blind.”
Seraph Black has endured a vicious stalker, a change of schools, a bonding, a triple-murder, and more than her fair share of uncomfortable situations; but it seems like the world isn’t done with her yet. The messenger is back with a systematic vengeance that knocks her flat, and not even her self-proclaimed secret-keepers are prepared for how far he is willing to go to get what he wants.
She is walking on eggshells, trying to keep everyone at a distance. Especially those that are closest to her. Unfortunately, there is one person who keeps slipping through the cracks: Silas Quillan, the gift in her life that keeps on taking. Every time she turns around, he’s taking something else from her: her choices, her privacy, her freedom, her sanity… and if she’s not careful, the the next victim might just be her heart.
Warning: While this book is intended for a young adult audience, it is not recommended for persons younger than 15 years, due to some disturbing themes.
Watercolour Smile is the second book in the Seraph Black series. The first book ended on a cliffhanger and this one brings us right back to the crazy things that are happening in Seph's life. However, now things are more intense for her. Her feelings are confusing, the guys feelings are confusing, and her whole world is coming down around her.
This book was interesting. The first half of the book was really good. Then it started to shift in a very different direction, and it felt slightly rushed. I didn't really understand what was going on and why. And I was equally frustrated with the way things were happening with Seraph and her pairs. It frustrated me so much.
And then it ends on cliffhanger to end all cliffhangers. It was utterly annoying! I'm looking forward to the next book, but I hope things start making a little more sense.
