Permanent Shadows (The Punishment Sequence #2) by C.E. Wilson

When a friend from Teague’s old life comes to visit, it sets in motion a sequence of events that will rock the Pixi world and force Cailin to question everything she thought she knew.

She knows that her father has been keeping secrets, but it’s only now that she begins to realize just how little she knows. Now she is trying to figure out what Owen’s relationship is with her father and if Owen and Teague are really what she thought they were. Learning the truth comes at a price, and Cailin is left wondering who she can trust.

Permanent Shadows is the second book in the YA Paranormal Romance series, The Punishment Sequence.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Oath of Servitude, so I was excited to get to read the next installment, Permanent Shadows.  I just love the cover too! 

Permanent Shadows picks up right where Oath of Servitude left off.  Cailin is a pixi who has been banished to living with humans.  But, her father's keeping secrets from her, Owen is still acting like the adult in the group and Teague is hot as ever.  Only this time, Teague introduces his ex-girlfriend and her mother to the mix.  She lives with Owen and Teague as part of the oath she is serving and it doesn't take long before Cailin feels there's not enough privacy.

Not to mention that that her sister's are annoying all all get out and Teague learns who he and Owen really are.  Sariel still wants Cailin, even though she really likes Teague.  Talk about a love triangle.  But, Cailin grows in this installment and she just wants to save her clan.  But then one of their own is possessed and Cailin knows she has to involve her father.  Will she be able to unravel all the secrets before it's too late?

A powerful second installment, Permanent Shadows is even better than the first novel! Wilson really shines as a writer, and the pages just flew by, I was so entranced in Cailin's world.  There's romance, intrigue, action and more in this fantasy that is sure to appeal to many.  Wilson does an adequate job of catching up the reader so it can be read as a standalone, but I'd highly urge you to start with Oath of Servitude first!

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
