Forging Darkness (Fallen Legacy #2) by Julie Hall

No one knows if Steel is dead or alive… except me.

For months I kept the late night calls from Steel a secret, until he let it slip that he tracked down his villainous sister, Silver. He needs help—even if the powerful angel-shifter is too stubborn to admit it.

But the Steel I find isn’t the same boy from Seraph Academy. He’s darker. Haunted. And the distance between us can’t be crossed by a simple flap of my wings.

When a battle with the Forsaken goes horribly wrong, I awaken as a prisoner inside a Fallen stronghold. My enigmatic abductor—Thorne—is manipulative, secretive, and claiming I’m meant to rule by his side.

I’m not buying it, especially since the alluring offer to unveil the mystery of my seraph ancestry comes at the cost of bringing every Nephilim to their knees.

Lines between the realms will blur. My world will burn. And this time, I’m not sure I can fight the darkness on my own…


This book was okay. Not bad or anything, but not original and not particularly amazing. In fact, half way through the book, I was waiting to get really really into it, you know?

Emberly is a prisoner in her gilded cage in the Forsaken’s strong hold. She learns a lot about herself and the Fallen and Forsaken and realizes that the Nephilim maybe don’t know as much as they think they do.

We don’t get as much interaction with the other characters in this book as we did with the first and I did miss that. However, I do think the next book will have a lot more time with the gang, which I am all for! We were also introduced to a new character (aka villain), Thorne, and I am really excited to see what his character does.

The book ends with a crazy little twist so I am very, very interested to see how it plays out in the next book. Overall, the book wasn’t bad, but I think I just expected a bit more. This series is available on Kindle Unlimited.
