"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.

I've been trying to finally get to those trilogies and series that I have been putting off, either continuing or finally finishing and this one was high on my list. Yes I realize it is December but better late than never right?

Darynda Jones has quickly become one of my most favorite authors. Her books are always riddled with humor, sarcastic witty one liners, memorable characters and a fast moving plot, all attributes a girl like me loves in her reading material so it was no wonder this trilogy appealed to me so much.

Having read the first book and liking it, I'm not sure what took me so long to pick up the rest of the series and continue but I'm so very thankful that I finally did.

Filled with Jones' trademark humor that I think her PNR series is famous for, this really was a fun read and a great sequel to the first, in fact, I think I loved it even more than I remember loving the first.

Jared is almost like a miniature Reyes in his brooding dark good looks ways and if Charley had a little sister, you can bet that Lor would fit the bill perfectly.

With a cast of fun and lovable characters, an action filled plot that will keep you guessing and on your toes, paranormal woo hoo and a romance to swoon over, this was such a fun book to read and reminded me all over again why I wanted to read it in the first place.

I can't wait to dive right into the last book and see how it all ends.

I really like this book series. I just love the funny, sarcastic wit of Loralie and her friends. Their friendship is precious, they are like siblings and have each others back even during life a death situations.

Death, Doom and Detention was even better than previous book. I felt an even bigger connection to the characters, I was more invested this time and we get to find out more Lor's background. This book is action packed. All sorts of secrets come out, people all over town are acting crazy, new people show up and new supernatural beings show-up. Fights are breaking out all over the place, Lor ends up with a new power and Jared ends up on the wrong side.

I love all the main characters in this book; Cameron and Jared's relationship it is just hilarious and we get to see more of Cameron's personality. A couple of complaints; first, I still don't like the fact that Glitch has feelings for Brooke, they have a really awesome friendship that is like brother and sister, so I just don't see why romantic feelings had to be written in. The second things is I don't like how Glitch is always picking fights with Cameron. He know that Cameron could kill him very easily and he knows that Cameron has a short switch so I don't understand why he actually has to physical attack Cameron. The trio use wit and barbs all the time with each other, Glitch could have used the same tactics on Cameron. However, I still love the couples that Jones has put together. I feel that both Jared and Loralie, as well as Cameron and Brooke are perfect for each other.

The war is on it's way and honestly I have no idea where this story is headed. I don't have a clue to how this war is going to be stopped/finished, I don't know who will survive, and more importantly I have know idea what they are going to do with the sleeping demon inside Loralie. I am looking forward to having all my questions answered in the final book of the Darklight series, Death and the Girl He Loves.

**Mini Review**

I picked up this book immediately after finishing book 1 - and dove right into it. I might have missed some sleep. But you know what's funny? I can't tell you WHY EXACTLY. I mean it is a good book, with interesting people, but there wasn't anything SPECTACULAR. *shrugs*

Now that Lor has come to terms with what she is and what she can do, she now needs to come to terms with what she HAS to do. Which wasn't so bad when she had Jared to lean on, but he has been distant. And then he vanishes.

While the story kept my interest, and I wanted to know what happened, there didn't seem to be a whole lot of substance to the story. It was pretty predictable and standard. Which isn't always a bad thing, there just wasn't a "Oh my gosh did that just happen?!?!" moment.

Overall, this was a good not great story. Worth the time to read it, and entertaining, but not a life changer.
