Last summer, with the help of demon-killer Stephen Tapper, Raven Smith faced Hell on Earth to stop the demon-apocalypse (or more like, put it on hold). Raven made a deal with the Grand Marquis of Hell: he would not open the gates of hell if she promised not to fall in love with anyone until he returned for her.
Almost a year has passed and summer has come again...
Raven is safe. Relatively. She's protected. Doggedly. She's away from the demons, the hell, the madness. Until she falls asleep.
When the earth-witch Madeline shows up in Raven's hometown (aka her prison), calling in Raven's life-debt, Raven shouldn't even listen to Madeline's proposal. But she does.
Madeline tells her that months ago, Stephen travelled to Thailand to track down a magician called The Spider; but within days of arriving, Stephen vanished. Every person (be they witch or demon-killer) Madeline sent to find Stephen was hunted down, overwhelmed and murdered by demons. The message Madeline received after all attempts failed was clear: send in Raven Smith or Stephen dies.
Going to Thailand might possibly be the stupidest decision Raven could ever make...there are 1,000 reasons why Raven should stay guarded, protected, safe; only one reason why she shouldn't.

Great Sequel to the Deception Dance
- Adriana B
Good Sequel. Bad Narrator Switch from First Book.
I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, in exchange for an unbiased review. Rita was kind enough to give both Book One and Book Two for review.
Unfortunately, a different narrator read this sequel and her voice wasn't in line with the character. A thumbs down for that. (I should have given a thumbs up review for the narrator of Book One as I failed entirely to mention the narration).
The storyline continued to move swiftly and take me deeper into the world. As far as Raven's new attraction to Stephen, I felt there should have been more reason for it. I also missed the play for affection from Andras and was uncomfortable with his complete turnaround from my introduction to him.
Maybe in Book Three I will see support for emotions. I'm always attracted to the "Bad Boy" stories so I need to see a deeper, more conflicted side of Andras.
