I only picked this book because of Author Siobhan Davis. I have only read Rydeville series and Resurrection of this author and I have been a great fan of her post that.
I might be in the minor category, but this book really didn’t live up to my standards (may be because I just had too high hopes). Book started out extremely well. The way Charlie was trying to own up to his mistakes and trying his best to not repeat it, was good. Meeting up with Demi and there banter even after 9 months of infamous Christmas night, I totally enjoyed it.
Book just took a 180 degree shift post that, they were threatening each other with harassment and ACLU case in the morning and end up with dinner date in the evening. I just couldn’t take it. The character development what I saw in her other books were just missing. Even in the end, the separation wasn’t justified at all. I read, but actually didn’t feel Charlie’s fear for Demi and the way he treated her was shitty.
Some twists were definitely unexpected which I enjoyed. Meeting the entire Rydeville crew again was the highlight of this book. One dialogue made me looking for upcoming Jackson’s book.
“William Hamilton – And this guy makes Michael Hearst look like the fairy fucking godmother”
“Round two is due to begin and we need to get battle ready”
Hope round 2 is as good as round one.
