Once I started to read it though I could not put it Down!!
Wendy Boettcher
I thoroughly love them all and they are starting to feel like family: Lorelei, Jared, Cameron, Glitch and Brooklyn. . . even (or especially) Lor's grandparents.
Stephanie H. Raffel
There is a showdown at the end that is well done and the book takes an interesting twist at the end to set us up for book 3.

"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.

Fans of Book 1 will very much like this book. I thought this was a better book than book 1. The author had already built her world and created her characters, so she could concentrate on telling a decent story. While there are bad guys on the fringes threatening Lorelei, most of the story centers around Lorelei's sassy, snarky interactions with her friends. There is a showdown at the end that is well done and the book takes an interesting twist at the end to set us up for book 3. For fans of angels and the paranormal, this is not a bad series. Looking forward to book 3 in the fall.

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.

It has been a while since I read the first book in this series, but I had no trouble remembering the world and the characters, and I did enjoy it a lot. This is why I bought this second book, even though it is over my usual book price. My stepdaughter also enjoys the books, so I will probably buy the third book as well.

Lorelei is still not convinced she will safe the world because she is an oracle, the last descendant of the great seer Arabeth. She is just a young girl, nothing special really. But not only do her grandparents count on her, the whole Order has faith in her. Her best friends Brooklyn and Glitch spend almost all their time at her place when not at school, and Cameron (who was born for the sole purpose of protecting her!) is guarding her day and night. And then there is Jared, also known as Azrael, the Angel of Death.

Lorelei is still angry at her grandparents for not telling her about her heritage, her parents and all the other secrets they have kept from her all those years. And for telling Jared to back off. She is in love with him! Of course he is dangerous as the Angel of Death, but he will never hurt her!
And now her powers are getting stronger every day, she cannot stop the visions from coming when she accidentally touches another student, and their feelings of despair make her very depressed. She is not just watching while she is having a vision, she is living them. And now she also has a new ability, of sinking into the moments before a photograph is taken. Lorelei is learning more and more about herself and her past, and she is not at all happy with what she has found out. She is directly responsible for getting her own parents killed by the demons. And what to think of the demon living within her?
