Summary from Goodreads:
Discover the spellbinding sequel to Coral & Bone...
A demented twin sister, a demon hijacking her powers, and a mysterious journal filled with more questions than answers—Halen needs her Guardian Dax more than ever. But if she confides in Dax, she fears he will never forgive her, not after all he sacrificed to help her vanquish Asair.Halen drowned Asair in a tornado of wings—at least, she thought she killed him. Why then does his mocking voice snake through her thoughts, enticing her to surrender her power?
Maybe she screwed up—big time—but she will never allow Asair to control her magick. And when Etils' fires threaten the Earth, suspicions surrounding Asair's death rise, igniting restlessness within the realms. Her life in balance, Halen must race time, purge the demon's soul before flames consume the Earth or the Tari strike first.
Their eyes met, and for a second, she thought she might blurt out
the whole thing—confess how terrified she was, and how she wasn’t
brave at all, but a coward for hiding her secret. His jaw tightened and
the muscles along his collar strained. Had he read her last thoughts?
As her Guardian, did he have access not only to her soul, but also her
mind? Asair warned her of the feelings tied to the Guardian bond;
whether she wanted to or not, she would lose her heart to Dax. As
she got lost in his sky-blue stare, she wondered what could be so
wrong with that.
