Seraph Black has endured a vicious stalker, a change of schools, a bonding, a triple-murder, and more than her fair share of uncomfortable situations; but it seems like the world isn’t done with her yet. The messenger is back with a systematic vengeance that knocks her flat, and not even her self-proclaimed secret-keepers are prepared for how far he is willing to go to get what he wants.

She is walking on eggshells, trying to keep everyone at a distance. Especially those that are closest to her. Unfortunately, there is one person who keeps slipping through the cracks: Silas Quillan, the gift in her life that keeps on taking. Every time she turns around, he’s taking something else from her: her choices, her privacy, her freedom, her sanity… and if she’s not careful, the the next victim might just be her heart.

Warning: While this book is intended for a young adult audience, it is not recommended for persons younger than 15 years, due to some disturbing themes.

Watercolour Smile by Jane Washington (Seraph Black #2)

Watercolour Smile (Seraph Black #2)It would seem that life and its warped sense of humor isn’t finished with Seraph yet, aren’t surviving stalkers, murders and bonding enough to dish out to any teen? The messenger isn’t finished with her, and he is back with wicked poetry, threats and worse, as Seraph’s life continues to be ground up and pulverized like yesterday’s bad fish. The boys are there, but something has happened, as if they have been brainwashed not to believe in her, but why and by whom? Just when she needs all of the protection she can get, she must stand apart from her “family” and face the dangers that lie ahead as she becomes an abused pawn in a game of power where there doesn’t seem to be a good side or a bad side.

From start to finish, the mysteries surrounding Seraph grow murkier and more convoluted. Someone wants her as a weapon, another as a lab rat, while someone else may want her dead. To top it off, her powers seem to be out of control and she is terrified and alone as she faces some of the greatest betrayals that she never saw coming…is there no one, and nowhere to go that she can trust in? Can she even trust herself at this point?

Jane Washington has turned up the volume on Seraph’s story until it is screaming with confusion and fear. Through it all Seraph is losing whatever confidence she had in herself as she is proven time and again that no one can be trusted, and then there is that voice, that pressure in her head…Welcome to a world where nothing is as it seems in Watercolour Smile. Looks like this series is just getting better and better.

I received this copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.
