But the Hold is ruled by Bailic, the renegade Keeper who seized the First Truth, a book of magic he will use to harness the might of the city of the dead and wreak a war of total devastation. The book has thwarted Bailic’s every attempt to access it, while it continually calls to Alissa—who must summon all her will to resist it. For if she gives in to the First Truth’s ultimate power and knowledge, she will be utterly changed—and the man she loves could be lost to her forever.
This is the second book in the Truth Series by Dawn Cook, who also writes under the pen name Kim Harrison.

Not as good...
I had enjoyed the first book in this series, but I found that this second book was harder to get through, and a lot less believable. The main character, Alissa, ruins the story with her childish, immature behavior. She refuses to listen to anyone else, and then seems shocked when her bad behavior results in making bad situations worse. I've seen toddlers behave with more self control that this character has. I found her to be very unlikable in this book. Some of the scenes in this book were not very believable either. Without spoiling the story, I would have to say that one character's lack of response to a life and death issue simply because he didn't want to mess up his room is a shockingly amature twist in a storyline. Even Marguerite's fantastic narration couldn't save this story. Needless to say, I won't be buying anymore of the books in this series.
