Clark used to be a miner, until he drank from a vial he swore was
absinthe but was actually an invention to give him the ability to
raise the dead. Now Clark seeks to fulfill his father’s wishes to
keep other inventions away from Senator Horan.
His beloved Amethyst is along for the ride.
Deceit, drama, romance, the insidious
underbellies of gangs…How can she not be involved?
Clark can’t hide behind the Treasure name forever and the army still
wants him for his secret abilities. If Captain Greenwood can’t snare
Clark, then he’ll use the Treasures as collateral. Saving his
father’s inventions will just have to wait, especially now that the
Treasures have been kicked off their ranch and driven into exile.
Clark knows how to survive on the run, but that’s not the fate the
Treasures deserve. He can surrender to the army or fight for his
freedom, but Amethyst has other plans for fixing their troubles.
She’s come across another one of the vials that gave Clark his
abilities, and it looks mighty tasty.
I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
I have read the first book in the Treasure Chronicles, Treasure Darkly and I was a bit unsure about it. There were parts I liked and parts I didn’t. The main character, Clark was a good hero. The concept of the world was cool. The love interest, I didn’t care for her. That is . . . until I read this book.
I wanted to revisit the world first and foremost along with seeing how Clark would be able to avenge his parent’s death as well as finding the inventions. What I found was far better. I am in love with Amethyst. She has changed into a phenomenal woman and character.
There is a lot of action in this book. I love that both Clark and Amethyst are quick witted people and find ways to save their family. This book was definitely the better of the two (not that the first was bad, but this one is my favorite). I would love to see if there will be more books on Amethyst and Clark. There is no doubt that she won’t get into trouble.
