Dark Heart Rising by Lee Monroe
Published by Hodder Children's Books on 2nd June 2011
Jane and Luca's story continues ...but not quite as they had planned. When challenges and threats from the immortal world of Nissilum rip the young lovers apart, Jane is bereft. Without Luca's dancing green eyes, and gentle smile, Jane feels lost, sad and alone. But then a trip to Paris with her grandmother thrusts her in the path of the amiable Soren - a kindred spirit who may be just the distraction she needs ...Meanwhile in Nissilum, Luca struggles with the loyalties and expectations that come with being a part of the immortal world. A world that is about to be shaken at its very core: rumblings of mounting unrest are spreading, and with rumours of an angel rebellion growing no creature is safe -- especially not a mortal girl who has fallen in love with a wolf boy...
I've just finished reading 'Dark Heart Forever' by Lee Monroe which I really enjoyed - review to follow soon. I didn't realise when I picked it up that it wasn't a standalone novel but the ending set things up nicely for the sequel which I'm looking forward to. The cover is very pretty too, although it reminds me a little bit of Lauren Kate's Fallen series.
