>This is the second book in the Ensouled Trilogy. The conflict in this book is over, but the battle still isn’t won. I did not read the first book in this trilogy. As a result, this book was very hard to follow. All of the demons have different identities from when they were human. Both identities were used to describe the characters. I had a hard time following who was who. Sera is a demon/human hybrid. She is second in command to her father, Lorenzo. Another demon, Damon, is her boyfriend.
>The whole story revolves around human demon hunters fighting demons. Demons are described as evil and Sera made some very compassionate choices claiming she used her inner evil to make her decisions. Evil and compassion do not go together, so I was very confused about what exactly was being inferred. Both Sera and Damon seem smarter that the average demon or human, yet the drug Blaze did not set off any warning bells for them. Lorenzo used the drug to control the demons, yet no one figured that out until the very end?
>The plot is weak. Humans vs. demons. There isn’t much real action, only the threat of action to come. There are few chapters set in the past, but their relevance to the present isn’t clear, other than the reader is able to meet Sera’s mother. There aren’t any love scenes, nor any real romantic scenes to highlight the relationship and chemistry between Sera and Damon. Damon seems more like a bodyguard to Sera, than a boyfriend.
>I am a reviewer for Romance Author’s that Rock. This book is appropriate for a young adult audience. I am giving the book 3 stars. Even if I had read the first book in this trilogy, this part of the trilogy dragged.
For me Damon was the one who showed us more humanity and his love for Sera knows no bounds. He would anything for her. We got to see how much he truly changed over time. I love his questioning of Lorenzo from the beginning and how he was always doing what he thought was right. He doesn’t embrace evil like he once did. He has a conscience and feelings. Seeing his decisions in this book and how he tried to help Sera but not force her to see his way was awesome.
Lorenzo is a maniacally evil creature. He uses anyone and anything to get to his end means. there was no amount of words to describe him and what he did. His manipulations show how depraved he was. Watching him turn people and find it to be just another day was disturbing. Especially his way with Sera. That was beyond the pale.
This is a story filled with strife, anger and danger. We see double crossing, manipulation and evil at its finest. The writing keeps you hanging in the book and you are holding by a thread like the characters wondering what way things will turn. Again for me it was Damon in this book for me. He was trying from the beginning to break the cycle of evil and Lorenzo while protecting and being there for Sera. Loved that. Sera changed but she had to fight to stop evil from taking her over complete. The final battle was awesome so much packed in that scene. A book on embracing your dark side but needing to fight it as well to do what is best. A action packed exciting book that keeps you needing to know what will happen and rooting for Sera to fight and Lorenzo to help her see the truth but not overpower her with thoughts but just be there. A great continuation to the story and I do wonder what is next for Sera and Lorenzo and how evil will change.
It seemed like the plot was building to this big conflict between good & evil, but when the actual battle happened it was very quick and almost seemed rushed when reading it; the pacing was a bit off the entire book, with the beginning part dragging & the ending being rushed. It also ended on a bit of a cliffhanger so we have to wait to see what happens with Sera & her fellow demons (I get why they're good ideas but I personally do not appreciate cliffhangers - because then I have to sit and wait for the next book to be released to find out the conclusion). The book is listed on Amazon & Goodreads as book #2 of a trilogy, so maybe the next book will help tie it all together.
