After Wolf Manor, Fawn vowed to never be weak, broken, or scared again. She has wrenched her power from the Vultures, visiting them under the cover of darkness to deliver the same drug they’d given her. This version has a different side effect: death.

It doesn’t stop the1 nightmares, it can’t erase what happened, but revenge is the only distraction from Lyon Estate. Tucked in the wilderness, she draws back into herself until Master Lyon demands they make good on their deal. In order to continue her vengeance, he is to be her Owner – really this time.

While it is a small sacrifice to make, Fawn isn’t prepared to be pulled back into Elliot’s world, where the rules of the Order exist, but in a new way. Running from him sends her into the arms of others in House Chimera. People who should be off limits, but they also stir something within her wholly different than the emotions Master Lyon can conjure. Marius is patient, and she finds herself clinging to him more now than ever before. People like them don’t believe in love, but can they choose it?

Fawn is no longer the prey, but beyond the trees, a lone Wolf is hunting…

Chrysalis is the third book in The Order series and continues the story of Fawn/Doe and Elliot/Master Lyon.

In the beginning it was a bit hard to get into the story because it’s been such a long time since I read the second book in the series, Wilt, but when I finished the first two chapters I was immediately into the story. Chrysalis is just so fast paced and well written, like Bloom and Wilt, and I couldn’t get enough of the story!

The Order had given my Master the seeds; he was the one who had made them sprout into wild vines, covering every inch of truth I could have seen and making me question each second we shared.

I remember not knowing what to think of Elliot/Master Lyon because of how Wilt ended, but now I love him all over again. We get to see a different side of him not that everything’s changed and I love it. Marius and Odette are both interesting characters and I don’t really want to spoil anything but damn… And then my favourite character: Fawn/Doe. She’s changed so much from how we know her in Bloom and I loved her character development. She’s become stronger and more beautiful (as a person).

Marius had meant to offer me comfort, but the slice of moon outside mocked me. I was trapped. We all were. No amount of stars could make the Wolves stop chasing us into different cages.

Chrysalis was everything that I needed and it was well worth the wait. I highly recommend this series because I love how dark this series is and Nikki Rae is just one of my favourite authors, so I have to recommend her books! I’m looking forward to reading the sequel!
