Griffin is not ready to forgive this woman, even though the
truth keeps getting in the way of his supposed hatred. But

family's help, he must decide where he stands before it is
Selene has dreams of a white wolf, blood, and death. She is
the only white wolf she knows. Can she be the cold-blooded
killer that Griffin thinks she is, or is this a plan to
destroy her rule and the peace she is working to hold
between the Vyusher and the Svatura?
HYACINTH is Book 2 of author Abigail Owen's Svatura
series and is just as fascinating as the first. The action
picks up where BLUE VIOLET ends only this time we visit
the "enemy" camp and get a look at the lifestyle of the
Vyusher and how Selene's brother managed to take over that
magically-gifted group. Ellie, Alex, and their family
from BLUE VIOLET are all back, and we finally get a better
look at Selene who had stepped forward after Ellie had done
in Gideon (Selene's evil brother) and someone who had been
visiting Griffin in his dreams. Griffin is understandably
in a quandary. For hundreds of years he has hated the
Vyusher but the heart is a crazy thing, it doesn't always
follow the mind's determinations. Selene too is in turmoil;
she is unsure of herself and feels guilty for being unable
to stop her brother.
HYACINTH might be a more youth-oriented story but if you
love a sweet love story, the feeling of family that
includes those of the heart, magic, forgiveness and
standing by what is right and going with your gut, then
this is a book you will want to pick up. I can't wait to
get my hands on the next in this series because there are
so many characters in this book that are intriguing I want
to see what happens to them.
