The Passage, a Dance, & a Little White Dress
by Kristin D. Van Risseghem   


It's been a week since 17-year-old Zoe Jabril found out her best friend is a Guardian Angel, her boyfriend is a Nephilim, and a fellow classmate is a Fairy. What makes Zoe so special? She’s destined to unify Enlightens to battle evil—that is, if Demons don’t kill her first.

With "Project: Enlightens Unite" underway, Zoe learns the history of the area wolf pack and realizes she's in a race against time to get her newly discovered talents under control. Despite struggling to fight a mysterious attraction to her new neighbor, rescue her boyfriend from Demons, and travel into Fairyland to convince the Summer King to join the fight, Zoe must still attend high school classes so her nosy parents don’t suspect anything is out of the ordinary before Demons can mount another attack.

Zoe will need all the help she can get, from the most unlikely of sources, if she’s to save her boyfriend's life and prevent the Devil from escaping Hell on her eighteenth birthday.

The Passage, a Dance, and a Little White Dress is the second book in the Enlighten series, and starts the day after the climax of book one.

Zoe is trying to pretend that everything is normal whilst she struggles to deal with the new world that she is part of. Part of what helps to keep her stable is her relationship with Shay. This receives a knock though, when Shay is taken and no one knows where he is. At the same time, Zoe gets a new neighbour (Aiden), who has a striking resemblance to Shay that apparently no one apart from Zoe sees. This, plus his behaviour, would be ringing alarm bells with me, but Zoe seems not to notice anything too bad, apart from it being "a bit off".

This book was an amazing follow up to the first story. We learn more about the various types of Enlightens, Naturals, etc. It is very well written, with a smooth pace building up the ending, and no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow. With a cliff-hanger ending that will have your jaw dropping, this book is both a brilliant follow up to book 1, whilst also leading you perfectly into book 2. Definitely recommended by me.
