The normal part of Lorelei MacAlister’s life didn’t just slip away quietly the day Jared Kovach came to town. Nope. The normal part of her life shattered. It exploded. It burst into a gazillion shards of fleeting light.
It went out with a bang.
Hello dark and eerie.
While her best friend, Brooklyn, is focusing all of her energy on helping Lorelei hone her abilities, Lorelei is dealing with the reality that Satan’s second in command has taken up residence inside her body. Oh, and the fact that she has a crush on the Angel of Death. But what a beautiful death it is. If those weren’t bad enough, something sinister has come to town and it wants nothing more than to hear Lorelei’s dying breath as it strangles it out of her. Thank goodness the gang has a supernatural champion. But what happens when the only being who can save them switches sides midstream? How can a group of misfits capture one of the most powerful beings ever created? And will they find out how to bring Jared back to them before it’s too late?
I've been trying to finally get to those trilogies and series that I have been putting off, either continuing or finally finishing and this one was high on my list. Yes I realize it is December but better late than never right?
Darynda Jones has quickly become one of my most favorite authors. Her books are always riddled with humor, sarcastic witty one liners, memorable characters and a fast moving plot, all attributes a girl like me loves in her reading material so it was no wonder this trilogy appealed to me so much.
Having read the first book and liking it, I'm not sure what took me so long to pick up the rest of the series and continue but I'm so very thankful that I finally did.
Filled with Jones' trademark humor that I think her PNR series is famous for, this really was a fun read and a great sequel to the first, in fact, I think I loved it even more than I remember loving the first.
Jared is almost like a miniature Reyes in his brooding dark good looks ways and if Charley had a little sister, you can bet that Lor would fit the bill perfectly.
With a cast of fun and lovable characters, an action filled plot that will keep you guessing and on your toes, paranormal woo hoo and a romance to swoon over, this was such a fun book to read and reminded me all over again why I wanted to read it in the first place.
I can't wait to dive right into the last book and see how it all ends.
