My Rating: 3/5 stars
This is the second book in Kelley Armstrong's 'Darkness Rising' series. So far I am enjoying this series a bit more than her first (Darkest Powers). I think Armstrong's writing has matured a bit, and I just like Maya alot more than I liked Chloe.
After Book 1's cliffhanger, book 2 starts off fast and furious. But then the book hit a pretty big lag for me. I kept reading thinking, 'when is something big going to happen?' The end of the book picked up a bit more thereby, setingt us up for the third, "The Rising", which is due out in April of this year.
I'm glad now that I read her first trilogy however, because it's about to come into play with this one.
Overall, it was an ok book, but I think it really did hit the 'second book slump'. However, I like the storyline and the characters so I will definitely be reading Book 3 to find out how it ends and how the Darkest Powers trilogy comes into play.
