Forget Me Not (Ceruleans #2)
by Megan Tayte
IN THE FACE OF DEATH, SHE MUST PROTECT THOSE SHE LOVES.
The Ceruleans: mere mortals infused with power over life and death. Five books; one question: If the might of the heavens were in your hands, would you be sinner or saint?
Death is stalking Scarlett Blake. As if the encroaching darkness in her head wasn’t enough, she’s become disturbingly accident prone. Falling off a cliff isn’t ideal when all you want is as much time as possible to live, to love.
Her fate is horrifying. Unbearable. And inescapable. No one can save Scarlett from The End that’s looming. Not Jude, the Cerulean who is intent on Claiming her. Not Luke, the boy who is intent on loving her.
The clock is ticking, louder with every heartbeat. Now Scarlett must decide how best to protect the people she loves. Will she trust in Jude and the life-after-death he promises? Will she stand against the Fallen, who have her sister captive? Will she carry the burden of her death alone – every headache, every hallucination, every wrenching, aching emotion?
And when the clock falls silent, when the darkness eclipses the light, will Scarlett fight for life? Or will she have no choice but to surrender?
Do you or have you ever known what always means?
Let Luke Cavendish tell you..
“For a summer and an autumn and a winter, they took each other. To have and to hold. For better, for worse. For richer, for poorer. In sickness and in health. To love and to cherish… till death did they part. That’s how I’ll remember us, always. Do you promise to remember us that way, always?”
To others, these words may seem sweet and adoring. But for Scarlett, this might just be the last words she’ll gonna hear before she dies. Oh gosh, here comes another painful ending coming and I couldn’t stop myself from crying.
I know I’ve been reading quite emotional reads lately, mostly purely contemporary romances. Today, I didn’t expect to read a high fantasy book ending in another gut-wrenching mood. And death.
Scarlett has learned of her fate about being a Cerulean, someone with the power over life and death. A mortal that could heal anyone who is wounded or dying. After knowing about her death, she suddenly became accident-prone. Seemed like death really wanted to get her.
But upon learning about this, she was also informed that her sister Sienna didn’t really commit suicide but she was taken by the Fallen. And the worst information of all, she was fated to die. She’s got only months or weeks or days to live and she had to do everything she could to prepare her loved ones. Her mom, her bestfriend Cara and her every loving boyfriend Luke.
I’m asking you.. If you knew that you would be dying anytime soon, how would you want to die? And how would you accept it? Where Scarlett is concerned, she could die anytime, but she wanted to be positive about it. So she made peace with herself, her mom and seized every moment she had. Even if she had to lie to everyone.
“So I snuggled into his arms, and his arms relaxed around me, and we drifted off in the darkness.
And we didn’t hear the candle fall.
And we didn’t smell the smoke.
and we didn’t see the yellow glow of light flickering
through the floorboards.
We slept, dreaming of a tomorrow that would never be…”
Megan Tayte once again wowed me with her imaginative world. I thought she’s an ambitious daydreamer and her writing was beautiful, lyrical, and intricate. I can’t wait to get my hands on her other stuff!
