One of December’s Top Reads
Something wicked is brewing in New York.
“A month ago, I watched in horror as six of my fellow initiates died after sipping the Nectar of the gods, a heavenly drink that either grants you magical powers or kills you. I can’t believe I’m coming back for seconds.”
Leda Pierce has survived the gods’ first test and gained entry into the Legion of Angels, but the fight is far from over. Someone is poisoning the supernaturals of New York. Suspecting witches, the Legion sends in Leda to investigate. To save the city, she will need magic she doesn’t have—and gaining that magic might just kill her. Now her survival depends on accepting help from the darkly seductive angel Nero, but that help comes with a price she cannot afford to pay.
Uncaged Review: Last issue I reviewed the first book in this series, Vampire’s Kiss and the only thing I didn’t like about that one, is it ended too soon. This one shares the same fate as the last. We still have Leda advancing up the ranks in the Legion of Angels, and this time out, someone is trying to kill of huge groups of supernaturals, first the vampires and then the legion and shifters. All of it mysteriously comes back to the Witch’s coven and the university in New York where Leda’s sister (and witch) Bella attends.
This book still has the great heroine in Leda – with her snarky attitude that’s never boring and in the angel, Neo, the main love interest for Leda. This part of the story is still too slow for me, but it’s further along than last book. I don’t mind seeing a romance build slowly, but with shorter books as these are, I start to lose my patience. But the action scenes, the suspense, secondary characters and the entire storyline jived perfectly. And yes, I’ll keep going with the series. Reviewed by Cyrene
