"Ms. Jones stepped it up a bit in this second installment of Darklight series. There is more drama, action, and the plot definitely thickened. Death, Doom and Detention captured my attention right from the prologue until the heartrending end." ~Under the Covers

Ms. Jones stepped it up a bit in this second installment of Darklight series. There is more drama, action, and the plot definitely thickened. Death, Doom and Detention captured my attention right from the prologue until the heartrending end.

Lorelei McAlister has matured since getting to know her from Death and the Girl Next Door. She has taken in the reality of being the last Prophet from the bloodline of Arabeth rather well. She is developing her abilities to see visions from future and the past. Also, most of her memories from her past had come back, including how her parents disappeared. Unfortunately, as the prophecy gets closer to reality, there are people who would like to hurt her. There are non-believers/haters that will do everything to prevent the predictions from ever happening.

Like I said, Ms. Jones stepped it up a bit. There are more emotions in this installment and I admit to tearing up once or thrice. Ms. Jones had started this book with Lorelei's memories of how she lost her parents. Let me tell you, seeing chaos unfold through six year old Lorelei was just heartbreaking. And seeing her go through the emotions of being a teen and being the person to save the world was tough to see as well. She whined and complained but came through each time. It was nice to see her friends help with that as well.

Death, Doom and Detention just rocked my world! Darynda Jones one-ups the first installment to the Darklight series with a sequel that is darker, eerier, and filled to the brim with supernatural wonder.

In Death and the Girl Next Door Lorelei MacAlister welcomed the truth about everything supernatural that revealed itself in her world, from the truth about her parents' disappearance to the fact that there's powerful demon inside of her. Now she takes a few steps back hoping to walk into normal. Her relationship with her grandparents, the only family she believes she has left in the world, has turned sour, and ditto for her romance with the powerful Angel of Death, Jared Kovach. She's feeling the pressure to be the last prophet of Arabeth, the only one who can stop the impending war before it actually happens, and with good reason. She's always surrounded by her bodyguards, Cameron and Jared, and her best friend Brooklyn constantly pushes her to practice conjuring her visions. They all feel the invisible forces at work, altering the personalities of schoolmates and targeting Lorelei.

I really felt the suspense in this novel. Jones kept her secrets locked until it was time for them to be revealed. Then again, it's a continuing pattern for Jones to keep readers in the dark and never knowing what's really going on until the characters discover it. At that point they walk right into danger. On one hand, I love the suspense; I love that the plot continues to be unpredictable and completely fascinating. On the other hand, I'm not quite sure my heart can take not knowing what's coming right around the corner!

Death, Doom and Detention takes a more somber and tense tone. There's plenty of action and surprises, but always the underlying hint of danger.

Format: Paperback
**Review Courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy**

DEATH, DOOM AND DETENTION was a good book that isn't perfect, but still a light, fun read. The underlying premise is different from a lot of paranormal YA I've read recently- instead of brooding werewolves or sexy vampires, we've got hot angels and terrifying ghosts. And while sometimes the premise verges on ridiculous, we still have some great characters, plenty of teenage angst and obviously, some supernatural drama.

If there is one thing Darynda Jones does well, it's great, realistic characters and witty dialogue. We've definitely got all of that here, mostly due to the three best friends, Lorelei, Brooklyn, and Glitch, and their two supernatural companions, Cameron and Jared. The teens all together are goofy and fun, and when Cameron and Jared weren't trying to kill each other (and even sometimes when they were), they were hysterical. The addition of the former "mean girl," Ashlee, to the group was also great, and shook things up a bit. A lot of the humor in this book is focused on the teens and their interactions with each other, which I really liked. I also like the mystery- I want to know more about Lorelei being the prophet, and I want to know how she is going to save the world. I'm kind of like Brooklyn in this book, I want Lorelei to keep using her abilities, as sometimes her visions were the coolest parts of a scene. And Lorelei coming to terms with the demon possessing her is interesting and compelling to watch. I wish there had been more scenes that dealt with that part of her.
