5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding follow up to Devil's Kiss 8 July 2010
By L
Format:Paperback
With the wounds of her last battle barely healed, fifteen-year-old Templar Billi SanGreal is back. In Dark Goddess, Sarwat Chadda picks up the story of the schoolgirl knight we first met in Devil's Kiss, and gives her an even more formidable foe to fight. It's goodbye London and hello Russia as Billi and co head off to rescue a gifted young girl from legendary witch Baba Yaga, who plans to wreak a terrifying destruction on mankind.

Having struggled with her calling in Devil's Kiss, the Billi we meet in Dark Goddess is stronger, more determined, and much more accepting of her Templar duty. She's quick-witted, tenacious and one hundred percent fierce. Thanks to a too-close encounter with an Unholy, Billi finds herself struggling with the darkness within, and she still wrestles with some of the more horrifying things that she's called upon to do. There's also a whisper of (thankfully slush-free) romance, as the mysterious Ivan enters the picture and instantly sets sparks flying with our butt-kicking leading lady.

One of the things that defined Devil's Kiss was its London setting: the sense of a whole secret world of Templars and Unholy hiding just beneath the surface of such a familiar city. This time around, Chadda gives a new location the same treatment. It's a story that takes us from the cold streets of Moscow to vast ancient forests to the concrete ruins of Chernobyl; a story that introduces us to Russian folklore, to a surviving Romanov heir, and to a tribe of werewolves that are more than a match for Billi SanGreal. All of these very different threads are woven seamlessly together into an enthralling tale full of action, intrigue and breathtaking battle scenes.

Simply awesome.. a week later and i still have the story in my head. Visuals spring from the page and the set pieces are epic. It's like a perfectly paced action film fantasy.. Wonderful.. I hope there is more to come from Bilquis.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVED it! 18 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback
To say I wasn't sure what Sarwat Chadda was going to do after the ending of Devil's kiss would be an understatement. I loved the first instalment so I began reading Dark Goddess with both excitement and trepidation. I needn't have worried! Dark Goddess is awesome - I absolutely loved it!

This time the action moves from London to Russia - and I Ioved the Russian setting and the legend of Baba Yaga - it worked really well. It was interesting to see Billi out of her comfort zone. Ivan is a great addition to the series - I adored him. I also really liked Vasalisa and enjoyed her interactions with Billi. There was some great character development too - especially with Billi. She certainly doesn't feel like a 15 year old girl anymore! There were also some great father / daughter moments and I am pleased that he is more of a `father' in this one. He still treats Billi more like a soldier than a daughter but I guess that makes sense given the world they live in. I do really love his character and if I had to criticize the book it would be that I wanted him to be in more of it.

Again the story is very action packed - things happen all the time that you don't see coming - or at least I didn't - and I found it all very exciting. As with Devil's Kiss you are not sure if all the characters will make it to the end - which gives the whole thing a sense of urgency. I do think there was much more humour in this instalment which added to characters and story as a whole. I still laugh when I think about the Holy Grail!

I just love the way Chadda has managed to make this series grow. Dark Goddess is not a rehash of the first book - instead it is something completely different - letting the characters grow and evolve naturally. Will everyone love this book as much as I do? I don't know.
