This book is much more about who Amedeo is, the Cruxim, their ways and how they came to be, with a little vampire action towards the end. Cruxim was quite dark, full of sorrow and sadness, but with the introduction of Skylar, Creche has a much lighter tone and has uplifted the series dramatically, whilst throwing in a little more romance.
The author has such a way of writing that the words just flow on the page, and I soon found myself completely caught up in the story and the history of it all. It has a very descriptive nature, without being over the top, which allowed my imagination to just take over and easily picture the story. Everything indicates that a major battle is on the horizon, so I’m sure the rest of the saga is going to be full of action and I can’t wait to read it.
I received an e-copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
The second book brought on a whole new story while still continuing with the original story line. It was unique and imaginative which held my attention through the whole book which is sometimes hard to do. A quote from the movie Up always come to mind “Squirrel!” A more in-depth look is done on the Cruxim which really brings to light some truths and deceptions. I’ve really come to love the characters and feel a part of the story so I can’t wait to read the final book and see what happens to the vampires, sphinx and angels.
In this follow-up to Cruxim, we learn more about Amadeo’s past – and he does, as well. Another Cruxim, Skylar, finds him almost immediately where book one ends, where he is reeling from the loss of his Sphinx lover, Sabine, at the bottom of the ocean, encased in gold. (oops, book one spoiler alert!!!) She brings him to the stronghold where the Cruxim live, and he learns who he is, who his parents were, and that he has been betrothed to marry someone. After centuries of living alone, it’s hard for him to swallow.
I really loved the first book which introduced Amadeo, Sabine and bad guy Beltran, and this one was enjoyable as well but I had a hard time following some of the names of the Cruxim strongholds and rituals, as they were all foreign-sounding words. Also some of the names of the Cruxim themselves became confusing to me.
However, as far as the plot and character development are concerned, it was a superb follow-up to the first novel. The addition of Skylar as a main character and potential love interest for Amadeo was welcomed, and the continuing love story between Amadeo and Sabine was interesting as well.
At the end of this novel, without giving too much away, there are still a lot of unanswered questions. Can he rescue Sabine? Will he confront Beltran again? How will he help stave off the impending war between the various Creche (segments of Cruxim)? I guess I will have to wait to find out …
If you haven’t read the first book yet, and you are looking for a supernatural thriller series that has a little bit of romance, a little bit of violence, and a lot of action, I highly recommend you get Cruxim and Creche!

While the main character, Amedeo, is a very likeable one, sometimes I felt he was a little too much about 'poor me, every one I loved suffered because of me' kind of guy. Sometimes I felt like slapping him out of it a bit. Still, this didn't make me like him less. It was a fun, short story.
