Just weeks before graduating from high school, Grace is running for her life with her magical and mysterious boyfriend, Sebastian, by her side. An ancient magic has been awakened inside of Grace that is powerful, frightening and barely within her control. The Others, who possess their own dangerous magic, are hunting them, and their only hope is for Grace to learn how to harness her incredible powers to stop them. The answers they seek are hidden within a life lived thousands of years ago, shrouded in mystery, magic and deceit. When their past catches up to them, Grace and Sebastian are faced with a truth that shakes the foundation of their relationship, their lives and everything they thought they knew. It is up to Grace to learn to control the Lost Magic, to right the wrongs that have been done, and to discover once and for all, who she really is.

Book Two of The Lost Magic series is full of adventure and information.  Grace and Sebastian go on the run to escape The Others and find information on their shared past.  Their trip takes them across the world where they encounter more of The Others - with good and bad intentions.

We learn a lot about Grace and Sebastion's past, but some of it is contradictory and confusing at first.  I just have to say to stick with it.  There is so much revealed in this story.  There were times I was convinced Suzi Davis was trying to make my good guys bad, and my bad guys good.  Be prepared for a lot of action, but much of it takes place on a more intellectual level as opposed to a physical level (but there are still a few good fights).

I'm on the fence about the ending (which I won't give away).  I know something really big will have to happen in book three or things just won't make a lot of sense.  This has been a great series so far with many unique and intriguing characters and ideas.
