I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The author has never asked me or tried to influence me for a positive review, nor have I promised one.
Much better than the first book. I admit, I had my reservations going into this one. After hating Katie so much I didn’t know if I could make it through the second book. Now, don’t get me wrong, I still hate Katie. But now my reason has evolved. She finds out why Wes saw the darkness in her, but in always trying to show everyone’s whose boss she may have done the most stupid thing of all.
Plot: The plot got very interesting. Now that there is no crazy “love triangle”. The story had time to develop. Katie starts to get to know the way of hell and even starts delivering souls to hell. She also learns something about herself that everyone including Wes must have seen; View Spoiler »the banished soul of Lilith, the first divine creature created and then banished, has found a home inside her « Hide Spoiler.
Characters: We don’t see Wes at all View Spoiler »until the end of the book « Hide Spoiler. We get to know more about Deb but something about her just pisses me off too. Honestly though, I don’t blame her so much. If my friend is dating a demon and she is happy with him, should I think demons are evil people? We get to find out that demons can indeed love but choose not to since they know good things don’t usually come from that. There’s also a new demon Braden trying to win Katie over – not a love triangle. And Katie gets to meet View Spoiler »Lucifer himself « Hide Spoiler.
Writing: The writing was pretty good this time around since most the annoying inner turmoil that Katie was experiencing is over. There’s still some but it’s much easier to cope with this time.
I am definitely waiting to read book 3 now, and I hope that it delivers. I’m glad I gave this one a chance. Plus, in the end Braden takes a soul and gives it to Katie but it seems that it looks different. Katie thinks it’s because the man has much greater sins but I think it’s because View Spoiler »he was a Praesul and possibility Deb’s grand-uncle « Hide Spoiler.
