Black Satin by Rae Hachton

Blurb via Goodreads-
"What if you weren’t who you thought you were?
What if your whole life changed in an instant and you were released to a new identity?
What if you were forced to kill the one you love?
What if everything you knew wasn’t real, and you awaken to a new world?
What if love could take you to unknown places? How beautiful is death really?

Marcus Marble has disappeared from Ellie’s life, and she needs answers to questions and he’s the only one who can answer them. How is her sister back from the dead, and why is Ellie still alive? When Ellie realizes Marcus isn’t coming back, she is forced to move on with her life the best way she can, in hopes of finding the answers herself, but when people at school begin to be viciously murdered, and Giles reveals to her a life changing secret, she decides to investigate the possible truth of it. What she discovers is more than she thought she would. The only time Ellie feels normal is when she’s around Walter, the new guy at school. And normal is how she wants to feel, now that Marcus is gone from her life. But Walter may not be all that he seems, either, and she just might spiral in to an even more dark world, she never thought possible. And when it occurs to her that Marcus has made the decision to pass on through to the afterlife, during the Risorgimento, she races against time to stop him, while knowing she has feelings for Walter, too.
Will she make it in time to stop Marcus from passing through, and if she does, what will she tell Walter? Her heart will have to make the final decision. But will the choice be worth dying for?"


I loved Black Satin! This was a perfect sequel to Pretty In Black and the beginning was written wonderfully with Marcus' point of view of details that happened in Pretty In Black. I do however recommend reading Pretty In Black first because you will miss out on other important details. I love Rae's writing style and the imaginative dark world that she has created. The characters were interesting, however Marcus wasn't in this book as much as I liked. Ellie remains to be a wonderful character and grows throughout the book. This is a fantastic series and I can't wait to read more!

5 out of 5 stars.
