I've found my third, and he's definitely the sin of anger. Jet has some damn rage problems, but I guess that's to be expected from a dragon shifter. Am I ready to play with fire? You bet your ass I am.
Derek, one of my sins, is making good work on stirring the pot. He's trying to rip open a hole to hell and he's gotten Luke on a leash to do just that. Don't worry, I have a plan. I just hope it doesn't get everybody killed.
Meanwhile I hear Sarah's gotten herself into some shit. By the time I get to her (gotta keep those sins in line) I find out that she has a new girlfriend. A muse and a siren sound like trouble to me, and I decide I don't like this Vikki character, even if there's something about her that makes one of my runes itch...
Second book in this trilogy and I don't feel it had the same power as the first. I found myself still left with a lot of questions and hoping that the final book in the series will actually get around to answering them and rounding everything off nicely.
Compared with the first installment, this story seems to jump around a lot more between the characters, with two interconnected stories happening on two different sides of the world. I also don't feel that Sonya's character is growing in anyway. She is still a powerful succubus who whines that because she is, she could never be monogomous with her girlfriend. I find it hard to know what sort of outcome I'm to be routing for as she throws around words like Soul Mate but is actively planning on having a harem of four men.
There is still lots of talk about her runes (of course) and that they are all linked to some prophecy which she is at the head of, but we still don't really have the shape of the prophecy. Though I suppose considering the genre I should probably just conclude its an Armageddon scenario and move forward with reading the story.
We also have had a string of bad guys, some of whom seem to be working together, but though each book ends with some confrontation between the good guys and the bad, the bad guys are never defeated. One from the first book, who "escaped" into the night, barely got a mention in the second though he was the antagonist for a large part of the book. I really hope book three shorts everything out, so that as a reader I'm not left hanging or confused.
I give it
