Sophia St. James has every reason to be happy: she survived the kiss of death from the seductive Demon Knight Dante and is free to be with Michael, her sexy Guardian Angel. She eagerly begins her Awakening to become a Spirit Walker and help lost souls cross over. But her training is fraught with setbacks, and Michael begs her to stop. The life of a Spirit Walker is far too dangerous, and he won’t be able to protect her.
Then Dante returns, threatening to drag Sophia to Hell so they can finally be together. Terrified of losing everything she has worked for, Sophia turns the tables on Dante, luring him into a deception that may get them both killed. The stakes climb even higher when Dante’s ally, Wolfgang, emerges from Hell with one order: kill Sophia. Will Michael once again be Sophia’s saving grace or will the Awakening give her the power she needs to save herself?
My ReviewMy rating: 5 of 5 stars
I just have to say-I'm loving this series! The writing is fantastic and the characters just keep getting better. Here in the second book, you can see how they are growing-especially Sophia and Michael. The two of them are really coming into their own in the roles they play as an awakening Spirit Walker and future member of the Halos of the Son.
Even though Dante is still bad, you can't help but feel sorry for him and his whole situation. The same with his friend and fellow Demon Knight Vaughn. Even so, I still can't root for him to win in the end because of his intentions for Sophia (no matter how enticing his character is).
The action and training scenes really draw you in, especially Michael's training for the Halos. Sophia's training is more mental and spiritual, but is still written in a way that keeps your attention. The fact that their training is separate makes for a lot less scenes with the two of them together which is a little disappointing, but the scenes with both of them present pretty much up for it. I found myself glued to the book trying to see where their relationship was going since it gets a bit rocky in this book.
This story is a wonderful addition to the series and has me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens next. If you haven't started the series yet, I highly recommend it-especially for those who love paranormal romance. You won't be disappointed!
