Crazy Bibliophile and Book Pimp (Not So Anonymous)

I am a mother of two boys and avid reader; I practically live and breathe books. If I could sustain my life on just reading, I would live forever. I'm weird, and proud of it. I have traveled to many places: Mexico, St. Marteen, Prague, England, Cozumel, and Canada to name a few. Many moons ago I co-hosted "Welcome to Insanity" radio show on a micro radio station in TX- but our show was played via streaming internet in coffee houses in Amsterdam. I have a BA in theater. I used to be "the finder of lost things" but I think my last child robbed me of my gift. Now I just have a large collection of useless information... it goes with my growing mountain of "to be read" books

Okay, if you're looking at this review, you've probably read the first book. So I won't bore you with re-hashing the blurb. But, my oh my, this is JUST as good as Blood Warrior; just as good, if not better than, the first.

Some of the things I absolutely LOVED in this one:
♦ The changing POV. I adored getting to know Nelly better and seeing the world through her eyes. It especially adds 'punch' to the ending of this point because you've become more attached to Nelly as a character. OMG- that ending! Not going to give it away- but AHHHHH! Book 3, where are you?
♦ Since Blood Warrior, I was already on 'Team Kayden'... now after this book- in your FACE for those that were NOT 'Team Kayden'. HA! He is the man, and stuck by his honor and stuck by Alexa.
♦ The world created in this Urban Fantasy series is further explored and fleshed out. It really creates a unique take on supernatural, and I've really enjoyed being drawn in further with this second book.

It's just great. If you can handle YA, and this is still on the 'innocent' YA level, although there are references to more carnal acts but no actual acting upon those carnal thoughts. I find this to be a GREAT series, and the price is really wonderful on these. If you like UF and can handle YA- this series should be at the top of your 'to buy' list!

August can't get here soon enough for my next 'fix' of Kayden....
