When we find Jessamine in this book she is not the same girl we left in the last book. She has lost her faith in men, and had her innocence taken away. Jessamine gets her revenge against her father and urns to the dark side. She becomes and assassin for hire and loses herself to he lure of the poisons. Weed spends his time desperately trying to find Jessamine, but all the plants tell him is hey can't find her.
This novel turns into an intense race to see if Weed can save Jessamine before she destroys herself, and if Jessamine can forgive Weed for the things she thinks he has done.
I loved this, it was much darker than the first book and Jessamine was pretty rocking even though she was kind of evilish. Weed was still Weed and I really loved him. I can't wait for more in this series cause I can't wait to see where this goes next. I know this wasn't the most detailed review but it is hard to talk in too much detail without giving away one of the things that makes this book so awesome. I'm giving this one 4 stars and I highly suggest you guys read this book!
