A Girl In Black And White
by Danielle Lori
My once upon a time didn’t end with happily ever after—but with blood-stained hands and cold blue eyes. The story of my life had been laid beneath my feet since childhood, but until death, I’d never known that road was paved with stones called lies.
In this city of sun and heat, cloaked in dark, both inside and out, I became somebody other than Farm Girl. There was no assassin behind my back. No, my shackles were just as tight but came in a different form.
Like Death’s icy fingers running down my spine, the ones that had gripped me for months, my past haunted my present in the guise of nostalgia. My old chains still left marks on my skin, their owner’s gaze following behind. But he didn’t know I lived. He didn’t know I was so close, that I heard his name spoken every day. That I still hated him. Until my hate started tasting suspiciously different.
One mistake and everything I’d created unraveled. A liar. Corruptor. He stood in front of me now. The air was heavy with expectation, tense with the possibilities of how this would unfold, of what he would do.
But there was always two sides to every story, and maybe in this version, the corruptor wasn’t him, but me.
*This should be read after A Girl Named Calamity.

The ending of this book blew my mind!! I so was not expecting that! What was that?? The pieces are all beginning to fall into place in book two. Calamity's fate, who she really is, and who Weston really is are just a few things that truths are being revealed about. Calamity is not exactly who many think she is. She is infinitely more dangerous in ways. And those who have an inkling of it are out for their own agendas. Sometimes that seems to include Weston. But he is a strange one. He has many layers to peel back to find the real man beneath them. A man long buried under his past and his heritage. But make no mistake, heads will roll if anyone lays a hand on Calamity. The man is as much of an enigma as she is. And some of the supporting characters end up being different than I thought once their motives were revealed. I cannot wait to see what happens next!
5 out of 5 stars!
