One spark will rise.
Nina Kane was born to be an exorcist. And since uncovering the horrifying truth—that the war against demons is far from over—seventeen-year-old Nina and her pregnant younger sister, Mellie, have been on the run, incinerating the remains of the demon horde as they go.
In the badlands, Nina, Mellie, and Finn, the fugitive and rogue exorcist who saved her life, find allies in a group of freedom fighters. They also face a new threat: Pandemonia, a city full of demons. But this fresh new hell is the least of Nina’s worries. The well of souls ran dry more than a century ago, drained by the demons secretly living among humans, and without a donor soul, Mellie’s child will die within hours of its birth.
Nina isn’t about to let that happen…even if it means she has to make the ultimate sacrifice.
The second installment was almost everything I wanted it to be. I loved that we got to learn more about this dreadful world. I predicted, early on, a few of the things that happened, but that’s not a big deal to me. I enjoyed getting to know the supporting cast a more. There still wasn’t as much romance as I would’ve liked, but what little bit there was was yummy.
My biggest complaint is that this is a duology and there won’t be anymore books in the series. While most everything was wrapped up in the book, I really think there’s so much more story there. I would’ve liked to learn more about Kastor and Pandemonia. I just really think this world could be explored even more, but I guess I have to be happy with just the two books. It was still a really good read and an excellent, albeit short, series.
