Katrina Summer finally comes to terms with her enchanted skin as she is challenged with an evil that threatens the Solstice settlement of Apollo Beach…
At a private gathering on Summer Island Kat meets an entire secret society of Enchanters – and other mythological descendants of a different breed. The gorgeous Valli sisters appear forcing Kat to take a deeper look into her new existence. And when Arabella, the youngest of the sisters, befriends Kat, she learns the most disturbing Summer family secret of all.
To escape the lurking dangers of the Equinox, which brings outrage and heartbreak to the entire town, Kat accepts a job at the Island Grille where more trouble brews as her handsome, yet brooding co-worker, Johnny, makes life even more challenging. Meanwhile, Kat struggles between her lingering and undeniable attraction for Alec, the secrets that she is forced to keep from him, and a betrayal that sends them on separate paths.
Mysterious deaths, signs of pollution rising in the Bay, and discoveries of the Equinox’s motives stir up an entirely new and frightening adventure as Kat finally discovers that being an Enchanter holds a responsibility worth killing for…
I adored Allen’s first book in The Summer Solstice series, and this sequel did not disappoint. It was full of excitement, new characters came into play, and turns were taken that I wasn’t expecting. My number one selling point for this series so far is that it’s just plain fun.
I love love love the new characters introduced in the series. There are mermaids… how you’re not rushing to purchase this book is beyond me. Maybe you didn’t hear me, I said MERMAIDS! Maybe I’m just excited because I have never read a book with mermaids in it and it was just such a cool change of pace.
The Equinox has everything you could hope for in a fantasy novel. There’s passion, excitement, magic, danger, and don’t worry… plenty of romance. I squealed and gasped and cried. Any fangirly feel you can think of, I’ve experienced it while reading this series.
Just like the first book, I’m giving The Equinox 5 stars. I recommend this book to any fantasy lover, but I have to urge to read book one first (obvs…)
