A solid four star read!,
This review is from: Darkness Divides: Book 3 (Sensor Series) (Kindle Edition)
I am really enjoying this series, folks. While it's not a mind-blowing urban fantasy like Written in Red by Anne Bishop or the latest Kate Daniels from Ilona and Gordon Andrews, it's still a helluva lot better than a lot of new urban fantasy authors I tried recently. Lauren M.Roy, James Elliott, Dana Cameron and Leigh Evans come to mind as authors of the series I unfortunately have absolutely no desire to continue.
Susan Illene on the other hand is a solid four stars urban fantasy read, where I pretty much like the plot, main characters and a slow development of the world they live in.
Melena, the sensor, who fell in love with her nephilim guardian, has this down-to-earth, matter-of-fact practical ruthlessness I particularly adore in my heroines. She does what needs to be done and doesn't suffer from unnecessary guilt or righteous indignation before or after.
In fact, she and Lucas, her lover, who has a very bad name in the world of supernatural suit each other perfectly. When she is in trouble he is ready to destroy everything and everyone to hep her, and when he is in trouble, aka stuck in Purgatory with a 60 years sentence of daily torture, she finds a way to break in, wreak havoc and shoot anything in sight, so she can get him out.
I loved Melena in Purgatory! She was amazing, and the way archangels punished her afterwards was particularly fun. And no, I can't tell you what it was, but I'm sure you'll enjoy it too.
I am anticipating all hell breaking loose in the next book and having more time with my favorite torturer *grinning*. He is a funny, awkward character, that man, and now he can't get away from Melena, so it will be fun! Recommended.
