When the girl with the golden hair is betrayed, no one has hope of surviving.
The stories say that Goldilocks ran away, but being forced over the wall and separated from the man she cares for was hardly her choice.
Now, uncertain if any of her friends survived the brutal attack, Auluria must work with her former handler, Shadoe, and raise a new army to invade the Society and take back that which is hers: Dov Baer, his family, their friends, and their freedom.
She’s willing to do whatever it takes, but this time, it’s not herdeception that will cause everyone in her world to burn.
Allegiances are changing, and at any moment, anyone in her world could destroy her.
Auluria, Dov and the rest of the cast left me holding my breath in the last installment. This book kept me on the edge of my seat as more of the story of “Goldilocks” unfolded. So when I picked up this sequel I was wondering if we would stall a little or… hit the ground running and we hit the ground running, most definitely.
There was no time to spare, not when Auluria is focusing on not only raising an army to take on the opposition but also to rescue her beloved Dov Baer, too. That is… if it isn’t too late. There is no promising if all is well or if he is still even alive.
While there is an onslaught of new characters they add some more depth to the story, the pace is fairly even throughout the entire book and instead of a cliffhanger, we’re left wondering… Was all that took place enough, will it ever be enough?
Imaginative, engaging and adventurous, Locked is an action-packed retelling.
