In the second installment to the Wicked
Sage, Jennifer L. Armentrout kicks
things up a notch with TORN. Picking up where the last book
left off, things
are really heating up after the epic discovery that Ivy has
made. Now that
she knows what she is, it's going to be tougher to navigate
the waters that
make up this world. At her side she has her lover Ren, but
when he learns
what it is she is hiding from him, will he still want her or
will he leave?
I found that I enjoyed this book better than the last one.
moments that make the character seems younger than they
really are but I
found that I didn't mind it so much in this installment.
The characters are much more fleshed out in this book while
the plot only
seems to thicken. I can be quite picky when it comes to Fae
novels but this
one has a lot of the traditional elements of the paranormal
species with a
little bit of a twist. Although this is categorized as a New

Torn between duty and survival, nothing can be the same.
Everything Ivy Morgan thought she knew has been turned on
its head. After being betrayed and then nearly killed by the
Prince of the Fae, she’s left bruised and devastated—and
with an earth-shattering secret that she must keep at all
costs. And if the Order finds out her secret, they’ll kill her.
Then there’s Ren Owens, the sexy, tattooed Elite member of
the Order who has been sharing Ivy’s bed and claiming her
heart. Their chemistry is smoking hot, but Ivy knows that
Ren has always valued his duty to the Order above all
else—he could never touch her if he knew the truth. That is,
if he let her live at all. Yet how can she live with herself
if she lies to him?
But as the Fae Prince begins to close in on Ivy, intent on
permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld, Ivy is
running out of options. If she doesn’t figure out who she
can trust—and fast—it’s not only her heart that will be torn
apart, but civilization itself.
