I received a copy of this from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Edie Kramer has her hands full. From the horrible events of the last book, Edie is struggling with the fallout from being apart of the Immortal Game, and having to deal with her boyfriend Kian’s deal. But just when she thought things couldn’t get worse, the stakes are raised…
I’m pretty sure not everyone will make it out alive. For reals. And that’s okay with me. Because Aguirre crafts a fun and fast sequel to her hit Mortal Danger. And when you’re playing with gods and nightmares, people are gonna kick it.
The plot is fast and fierce and I love the twists and turns it takes. Harbringer is my favorite in this book as he is lethal, deadly, sick and just a little bit sympathetic. He’s all sorts of wrong and awesome piled into one. While I liked the power Edie wields now, as she grows stronger and stronger in this book, this reduces poor Kian into a a shadow of his former bad ass self. Sadly, he becomes more of a worrywart, a nag, and can’t contribute a ton to the action besides adding emotional weight. Don’t get me wrong, I like Kian a lot. And I like them together. But I think Kian has kinda lost his way as a character and needs a little bit more to work with. I’m sure this will be solved though considering the awesome cliff hanger of an ending!
I don’t want to give too much away but I want to say that this is a solid sequel that will surely please fans of the first book. Edie is ready to take on the players and she is no joke, ready for it. I love how her character has developed. But I also love how no one is safe. Aguirre throws in just enough surprises to keep everything interesting and the reader on her (or his) toes.
I can’t wait for book three to see how it ends. And who survives.
