Equilibrium (The Rapture Series) book 2 by L.K. Reid
Equilibrium (The Rapture Book 2) by L.K. Reid
My name is Ophelia Ekaterina Aster.
Daughter of a Dragon.
I never minded the whispers or the screams, because I knew who I was and what I’ve done.
I never minded, until I did.
I sold my soul to the devil and painted the pages of my story with the blood of those who betrayed me. I became the darkness they threw me into, and I destroyed them.
I wouldn’t stop, I couldn’t stop, not now.
Not when everything I worked for was within my reach.
But it all came crashing down when he barged into my life again and threatened to ruin my carefully laid plans. It only took those two words.
He said he wanted me, he said I was his, but how could I trust him when every single person in my life has stabbed me in the back? I wanted to believe him, I wanted to believe that the fairytale I so often dreamed of could become my reality.
But I was wrong.
I should’ve listened to my gut. I should’ve escaped while I still had time, because even though love runs deep, betrayal… it runs much deeper. I guess I didn’t expect it to hurt like this.
I didn’t expect it to turn into just another nightmare.
Equilibrium is the second book in The Rapture series, dealing with dark and violent themes that might be triggering to some, and is therefore not suitable for readers below the age of 18. It is recommended to read Ricochet before Equilibrium.
This is not a standalone and it ends on a cliffhanger.

Book two starts at end of book one. And from the outset it’s a bumpy ride for Ophelia!
Ophelia should be feeling some semblance of relief. One less evil on the earth! But she doesn’t, she doesn’t feel much of anything. She on the search for her missing sister, and although they hadn’t gotten along in years, she doesn’t deserve the fate she’s been handed, so Ophelia is going to find her and try to save her. Then she’s back to finish the job she started, men on her hit list….
Men that will die!!!
We have a new character in this book, we also met him in the previous book Storm. He has the same outlook on life, bleak, harsh and endless!! Leader of a vicious motorcycle gang, his word is law, and if you cross him, you won’t see him or the next day coming…. And wouldn’t you know it, he’s already betrayed her!
Romance? There is a definite interest between these two, but I think it’s more on Storm’s side than Ophelia’s. They had met years ago, and for both of them there was an Instant attraction. But Ophelia had a mission and Storm was just suppose to be an itch she scratched. But for Storm, it was so much more, and it hurt that they never stayed together! So now he has her, he’s not going to let her go…. But I’m not sure if either of them can really love anyone?! But those secrets he holds, they are going to tear them apart, he just knows it!!
Cliffhanger? You guessed it! Yup!
This one wasn’t as twisted as the last book (so I’m waiting for a whammy courtesy of book 3!) but things don’t go to plan for anyone. More secrets, more lies and the biggest plot twist that I did not see coming!!

Meet L.K. Reid:
Hi there. My name is Leila but I am writing under my pen name L.K. Reid.
I write dark romance, the characters that are depraved, lost, a little bit misunderstood and most of my books are touching subjects of mental health in one way or another. While Ricochet is the first book I will release, I have actually been writing since Primary School, but that little thing called self-doubt always kept me away from truly pursuing my dreams.
Recently I realized that if I don’t chase my dreams, I will never do everything I want to do. Sixty years from now I would regret all the things I was too afraid to do, so I did it. I allowed myself to dream and put myself out there. I want to show you these worlds swirling inside my head and these characters whose stories have to be told.
I am a restless person. I can’t stay in the same place for a very long time so I like to move. I love to explore new places, meet new people, learn about new cultures, you know, the usual. My mom used to tell me that I live inside my head, and that’s true. I really do. While I do love being surrounded with other people I also love to be alone. I think that until we truly know ourselves and our thoughts we could never be truly happy.
Truth to be told, I am still figuring out this whole adult “thingy”, but I think that most of us are pretty much lost in that world. Slow walkers are the bane of my existence, and one of my biggest pet peeves is people not responding on their messages – it really drives me crazy.
I wanted to be an archeologist, but we can see that that definitely didn’t work out. My small obsession with Greek, Egyptian, Nordic and Slavic Mythology was one of the driving forces behind many stories I wrote as a teenager, and I am pretty sure that one day I will end up writing a book with those themes.
If I could I would set Halloween as a Public Holiday. Spooky season, Autumn, that’s my jam. Scary movies go hand-in-hand with that I would say, and my favorite ones are Halloween and Scream – all of them. Music was always a big part of my life as well, and I can’t imagine a day where I don’t listen to it for at least a little bit. Everything I ever wrote was done while listening to music, and if it wasn’t for music, I would most probably be completely lost.
