Treason is the second book in Boyce's Grimoire Saga. It picks up where Litchgates leaves off. Kara and Braeden are preparing to attend the gala in Ethos with the Bloods and others around Ourea. Kara needs to impress the royal families if she wants them to unite with her and fight for peace. Carden attacks the gala, and Braeden is almost forced to show his true form, which insights a riot among the Bloods. Now he must prove his allegiance with the Bloods and against Carden, even if that means risking his own life. Kara needs to learn whom she can trust and who is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and learns what true weakness is. She discovers something new and surprising about herself that could change the course of her campaign. What is the next step in this war against Carden? Will Ourea know peace?
This installment of the series is packed full of surprises that will keep readers guessing. Kara develops into a stronger character and not only struggles with what the first Vagabond wants, but also what she feels is morally right. She is slowly becoming the leader she needs to be, but she still relies heavily on other people, mainly Braeden. Their love for each can at times cloud their judgement and I haven’t decided if that is a good thing or not for this war against Carden. I have to wonder what kind of ruler Braeden would be and whether or not his own people would accept him as a leader should Carden fall. There is still a mystery that revolves some of the other bloods and their motives for things
While a lot happened in this novel, there are still a lot of questions, especially with the muses, isen and different aspects of the races. It seems some characters are discovering new things that no one knew before which makes me wonder what will happen in the next novel with these discoveries. Boyce wraps the story around reader’s minds and drags them down into Ourea. You become attached to certain characters even if it is not Kara or Braeden (for me it is the muses). We saw a lot from Gavin and Aislynn, but not the other bloods and I have to wonder if we will see them more in the future novels. I am very intrigued with them and want more from them and their cities. It is evenly paced, fast read. Even though there is a lot happening in the novel, it seems to fly past because you simply can’t pull yourself away from the pages.

In Wild Thing, we get a background on Lexy. We witness the horrors she had to experience and overcome that made her into the dragon, the events that made her shut off all her emotions. Wicked Thing we see her struggling with her feelings for Grey and the reality that they can never be together. She must figure out what she needs to do in order to overcome her feelings for her handler even if it means addressing a moment that occurred between her and Tiberius. Lexy begins to search within herself to discover the woman behind the dragon.
I cannot begin or rather continue to say how amazing of a writer Kim is. She draws her readers into the story with the very first word, or sentence. She creates this world that her readers long to be a part of, I know I do. It is hard not to want to be a part of the clan and learn more about them or even the other clans (possible addition to series hmmm?) She makes the world she created almost tangible for her readers in a way no other author has done (at least not for me). I cannot begin to say how many times I lost sleep because I could not put the book down even if it was 3 o'clock in the morning.
Kim has a way with writing that almost makes you wonder at your own sanity. There are so many moments when you laugh and then wonder if you should be laughing at that. "Seriously are we drawing happy faces with people's blood now? You really need to find a new hobby, I mean something other than murder." How can you not laugh at that quote?? It is one of my favorites and just a small snippet of what makes this series so amazing. I believe I am starting to run out of ways to say how great Kim Cormack's writing is. I could see this series becoming the next big movie franchise, how can we make that a reality?
Release date is July 17th, pre-order now! If not pre-order, then buy it when it comes out. You will not regret the decision.
