When the temptation of being with Emma gets to be too much, Bennett disappears, pursuing a dangerous path to increase his powers. Heartbroken and alone, Emma tries to lose herself in school. But when the Knell, a secret ghostkeeping society, sends two new ghostkeepers to Echo Point—one a snarky teen guy, the other a British scholar—Emma throws herself into training to battle Neos. But as the team grows stronger, so do the ghosts. And worse, one of their own will betray them. One Emma never suspected. . ." Goodreads
The second installment of this brilliant series is Betrayal. The story starts a few weeks after the end of the first one. Bennett and Emma are finally together but their problems are just beginning. Then enters some new characters and Bennett's parents.
What I liked most about this book was that it was more action packed than Deception, and not overly angst ridden (I like a little bit of angst in my book but not where it drips off every page). We learn even more about Ghostkeeping, and about Emma's past...as well as her parents.
Bennett comes in to his own in this book, and we get to know more about his feelings and motives, which adds another layer to the story.
There were some parts that were a little predictable, and I found myself feeling a little bit 'is that it' at the end of the book. I wanted more. However it did deliver in some many ways. Plot, ghosts and love.
I can't wait for Surrender now.
