Intense, emotional and more than good enough for a few moment of hyperventilating. I enjoyed this sequel to the first book. Ethan turns out to be far more complicated and worthy than the first book portrays. His journey is more arduous both physically and emotionally than Jayden's was in [b:The Forbidden Room|7344755|The Forbidden Room (The Forbidden Room, #1)|J.P. Barnaby|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1285197117s/7344755.jpg|9075021]. That was a young man's journey, this one belongs to a tormented one.There are some wild swings in the emotions and how Jayden, Lexi and Ethan find resolution is not without a lot of pain. This story is for those who like to rip their hearts out, toss 'em in a sandbox, and then shove it back in. Definitely worth rereading.
