Delia is back in the clutches of her evil aunt and cousin once more with the dawning of Delia's Heart. Now a high school senior nearing the end of her time in the private school that she must attend with her cousin Sophia, Delia is on edge and ever alert for any signs of potential danger. Sophia’s jealousy is more dangerous than a dragon, and Delia is the fuel to Sophia’s fire.

With Ignacio hidden in Mexico and thought to be dead by all in the U.S., Delia’s knowledge of his continued existence is enough to bring many lives to great risk. Her correspondence with him is her only link to sanity and love, but it is also the most dangerous and risky course she could follow. If anyone were to find out about his whereabouts, especially Sophia…

But while Ignacio is a hidden treat within her heart and soul, Delia’s life is an open target for manipulation by her power and money-hungry aunt. When Delia is invited to dine with one of the area’s wealthiest families and to meet a senatorial candidate, her aunt sees opportunity blooming on the tree and grabs greedily, through Delia, every chance that falls before them. The politician’s son is enchanted by Delia, and it takes little time for a whirlwind romance to sweep them off their feet. Delia’s world is spinning quickly out of focus, and it is with a painful crash back to earth that the reality of Delia’s life and origins reassert themselves.

Sophia’s jealousy once again takes lives and throws them needlessly away. Yet again, her arrogant, horrible mother does nothing to hold her accountable and responsible. Instead, the lives of whole families, individuals, and people’s souls end up paying dearly for her hatred, animosity, and evil nature. Delia is left to fend for herself, alone and abandoned, perhaps for the best - perhaps not.

Andrews forges forward with the Delia series along much the same path as she started it. The same dark, negative, miserable outlook runs throughout the entire novel without reprieve, and there is little left for pleasant reading. The twists, turns, and plot enhancers are anything but wanting throughout the novel. Unfortunately, the whole read is rather depressing.
