Since many people complain about not knowing about cliffhangers, Book 2 does finish, although it does lead into Book 3.
I still enjoy the story line. There's plenty of action and some twists and turns. The characters are likable, believable and Maya character continues to evolve. She's more comfortable with her fire power and adds more as the stories continue. Learning a new culture has an added interest to the story.
Other than a few smooches between Maya and Nik, there's really no love scenes, so this book I'd rate about PG-13.
The spelling and grammar errors are still in the book, but 'suffer' through this one if you're enjoying the story because Book 3 and 4 there's very little. Words misspelled, or the wrong word (which was spelled right) and the dashes are still there. For some it would drive them nuts, for me it got to be a game. Some of the ones in Book 1 or 2 I'm wondering if it was a different culture's spelling, but me born and raised in Michigan they were errors.
… Same rating as Book 1, four stars but really the spelling should bring it to 3-3.5 but I still enjoyed the story.
For most of her life Maya had been skeptical about her parents religious beliefs and the work they do for the goddess Kali. Discovering that she is the Hand of Kali, however, and meeting some members of the Hindu pantheon has understandably given her a new perspective on things. And so it is that we find her now accompanying her parents on the job as the second installment in this series opens. I liked getting a chance to see what her parents do and through that to learn a bit more about Indian folklore.
Of course, working with her parents is just a small appetizer before getting into the meat of the story. Maya receives a summons from Lord Shiva, the most powerful god in the Hindu pantheon, who has a mission for her. With Nik and Joss along to help, she sets out to fulfill the request Lord Shiva has made.
A lot happens in this book. In addition to her main mission, Maya also finds that her friend Ria needs her help, as does an acquaintance of hers and a grieving mother she meets along the way. Sometimes when so much happens in a story it can become a bit tiring to read. Ayer does a good job of pacing the plot so that doesn't happen here.
There are some interesting twists to the story. As usual, Ayer nicely sets them up so that they don't feel completely out of the blue without telegraphing them. It'll be fun to see what surprises are in store in the next volume.
Maya has grown and is getting more comfortable with her new role in life, as well as her powers. I'm happy about the direction this series is moving in and I enjoy watching Maya as a character; evolve. The 'Quest' in this installment was pretty neat, and deadly. The end has a nice segue into the third book.
I voluntarily read a complimentary copy of this title, given to me by the author. The opinion in this review is solely that of my own.
