“Chaos within destiny. It was the definition of our love.”

Reviewed by Melanie Newton
Hell - as in what the Hell. Generally there is less cursing in this book than in the first one.
Talk of a kiss that happened at prom and kisses in dreams. Robb kisses Jess (uninvited) and tries to force himself on her Some intimate kissing with Eric and Jess and the suggestion from Eric's father that they are sleeping together (which they are not).
Appropriate use of pain medication in a hospital. Talk of underage teens arranging to go to bars, using fake ID's and drinking beers and shots . Robb is smoking a Cigarette (although he is 18 so it is legal)

Supernatural Characters: Shades (both light and dark – not human and have various powers)  and half  breeds (Part shade – part human)

Other: The main characters in the book are not human although they maintain a human persona including attending a regular high school etc.  It is set during a time of magical war and prophecy and many of the things you would associate with that sort of thing are mentioned but the detail is not as graphic as many similar books of the same genre.
