A great follow up to The Devil’s Fool.
This second installment of the series was just as twisty and action packed as the first, an equally good and captivating read. This time we see events through Lucian’s eyes, he is a much darker, more severe character so expect some angst and anger as you read this.
The plot was really well thought through and the story flowed well. It was impossible to pick out what was new and what was original, the author did an amazing job of blending the two together. Despite them being supernatural creatures, Eve and Lucian’s actions and emotions are very believable and I found it very easy to empathise with them. The constant pulling away by Lucian could have become annoying and definitely would have been, had we not been “in his head” and experiencing his thoughts, feelings and emotions.
The developing relationship between Eve and Lucien is beautifully woven through this tale and I really enjoy how this author writes a really rounded story. She mixes just the right amount of description, action, intrigue, passion and dialogue. The suspense builds well and I found myself wondering who you could (or couldn’t) trust in the story.
I really enjoyed reading this book and would recommend this series to those who like a good paranormal/supernatural tale with a nice side of romance threaded through. This does end on a cliff-hanger but the next updated book will be out very soon and I that will definitely be on my TBR list when it is.
