Jonas Crow, known as The Crow, took out the biggest crime family that Coast City had ever seen, with the aid of the V serum running in his blood. For a short while, the city was clean and people went about their business fearlessly. Then Victor, another of Jonas' friends, established a new drug, called Rhino Dust. Jonas and his wife were murdered, supposedly along with his son and Jonas' best friend, Roman. Roman and his son hid out in Ironwood -- the old, abandoned part of town buried under the rest of the city after a big fire destroyed part of the city. His son, Aris, trained with Roman to become the crime fighter his father had been, even receiving the V serum from his father. Aris avoids the conversion to full Vampire, fearing the blood-lust and loss of control of a full Vampire.
Can Aris clean up Coast City? Will he become a vampire? Read this exciting paranormal series and find out.
The Devil's Fool #1 - Intriguingly dark. A well written suspense with several interesting characters and an intriguing plot. This is my first book by this author and since I didn't know what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised by the story. I couldn't stop reading until I finished the book; the more into the story, the more mesmerizing. Cliffhanger, there's three more books.
The Devil's Angel #2 - Intriguingly darker. A well written, fast paced suspense with more interesting characters with a twisting, intriguing plot. I am confused why such a powerful witch would weaken so much after using her magic. This is still a substantial series, unlike Twilight, more like The Dresden Files. I couldn't put this book down, either, and hated that it's a cliffhanger, two more books.
To be honest, the beginning of this novel was a little slow for me. It almost read like an angsty teenage novel. But after a few chapters that feel shifted and I was unable to put this book down. Aris is a complex character. He is striving to be like his father and save his city from corruption, while also trying to stay true to his non-killer self. However, time will tell if he will let his vampiric nature win and let chaos control him.
There were other characters I liked. Namely Oz and his sister Amy. They give a different perspective into the city life since they have actually lived through the terrors. Oz is a cheeky but sweet guy who just wants enough money to help his sister. She has a brain tumor, but that doesn't stop her feisty nature.
There was a hint of other supernatural elements in this novel, but they were scattered. That's due to the fact that it was being kept hidden from our main character, and thus from us. I cannot wait to learn more in the next book.
This was a bit of a slow burn but that gave us a wonderful opportunity to get to know Aris and his life so far. Aris is one amazing hero both in Coastal City and in the book. His innate goodness was obvious from the start, it could be seen in how he treated others, his desire for doing good, his unwillingness to kill and the love he holds for his few family and friends.
As the story unfolded it felt like the pace picked up, although this might have been that we were learning more truths. Some of those truths were quite shocking and unexpected and made me question my perspective on other characters. I am sure the author has plenty more revelations to slay us with in future books. The ending was sort of unexpected and is a cliffhanger but was still extremely good.
Overall the pace was good and the plot was both very different, engaging and well written. The story had a bit of a 'dark' feel to it with despair and corruption being huge issues. However Aris and Emma provide moments of joy and lightness that offer you real hope for their future. There are so many secrets that are hinted at and untold stories yet to be revealed and I for one am ready and waiting for book 2.
