This is a big disappointment. In the first book we always give writers a pass. It has an interesting premise.The second we expect circumstances to add a depth and breadth to the characters. This one misses the mark. It reads like a teen-age love story featuring immatures arguments and misunderstandings and hot sex.
The relationship between Harper, our heroin and Knox, our hero, centers around the need to keep each other save for the sanity of their demons. Much of their dialogue centers around them making promises to each other to notify the other IMMEDIATELY, not after dinner, if they, were in danger that day. It does not matter if the threat was not in their vicinity. We are given various combination of those scenarios, which end with hurt feelings and mad demons and hot sex.
What started as someone plotting against our couple, has become an organization, the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, that wishes to destroy Knox, by coming at Harper. That is why much of the dialogue is…“I just want to protect you”, “My demon would destroy the world without you”, hot sex, ex-girlfriends pissing off Harper, Harper cussing them out, Joelean, Harper’s grandmother, threatening Knox, and Harper and Knox flaunting the life of the super-rich. The culmination of the story is a big shindig, oh sorry celebration, which is the announcement of Harper being a co-prime.
But from the start of the story to the shindig is 6 weeks. That is a lot of time with their high school relationship antics, rouge demons escaping, hot sex, and shopping. There is one big demonstration of their magically gifts. There is an interesting twist but it follows a predictable pattern. There is always a situation when a protagonist, who has an average magically ability, has a boost in that power. That part of the story was pretty good.
The most amusing part is when the Wallace family does their imp thing.
I will not continue with the series. There are too many urban-fantasy paranormals novels that actually put in time for character/story development. Hot sex is okay, but at least give me a story.
