Excellent book but does lack a little of the authors usual magic touch.

Difficult to find the right words to fairly review this book. I am a fan of this author and enjoy her style of writing. In addition she is constantly surprising me with her ingenuity for finding out of the ordinary storylines.
In this book, the second in the series, we have lost the heroines love interest from the first book and her supposedly dead former lover returns to her world to take over the role.
The story did have some excellent twists to surprise and keep the readers interest. It lacked the manic style of book one, which I appreciated. Well done with the predictions, in particular the way the predictions had both obvious and hidden meanings.
The characters, particularly the priest, the vampire and the werewolf were fleshed out and gave the story much more depth. Some of the "supernatural" characters were amazing. The injection of humour resulting from some of these characters really helped keep the story light and countered the darker sections.
As mentioned with the first book I personally dislike the introduction of the graphic sex scenes. I accept this is a personal point but find it hard not to reflect this in my marking.
If you like science fantasy I am sure you will enjoy this book. Similarly if you like a well crafted story with ingenious storylines this one is for you.
Thank you Angie Fox. Have book 3 ready to read.
