Upon starting Damon Snow #2, I was happy to note the series' identity crisis was abolished. It felt 100% historical paranormal from start to finish. With book #1, it felt more of a historical romance with mentions of paranormal. Why do I mention this? I fear it would have been off-putting for a reader who didn't straddle both camps, wanting more of their favored genre. Olivia Helling manages to inject the charm of the era with the originality of the supernatural.
Well-written and easy to read, with the flow maintaining the narrator's voice, and a quick pacing which keeps the reader engaged.
This was an angsty, lust-filled novella that wasn't light on story. Damon is an insecure, Incubus Molly, who is lonely, heartbroken- even if he won't admit it -and completely endearing. Oft times a novella isn't as fleshed out as a full-length novel in the emotional depth department, with the characters coming off as 2 dimensional in order to fit a story in so few pages. But this wasn't the case in Damon Snow #2. My heart hurt at times. I found myself smiling, getting excited, and worried for Damon. The side characters were just as endearing, even the anti-hero Frost (I want to know more of him, but I'm equally intrigued by both Rogers & Byrne).
Without coming off as a fangirl, I will say that years ago I read a ton of UF & PNR, and in recent times I started reading Historical Romance, never combining the two until recently. I've read thousands of books, but when I was asked to read this title for Wicked Reads I was excited, recognizing the title immediately (as I'd been waiting for it).
In a nutshell, I was entertained the entire time. When I finished the novella, my appetite was whetted for the next. Book #1 was a slow build into book #2, which captured me as a reader, and I anxiously await #3.

Would I read more by this author: I look forward to seeing the growth as an author, and will be on the lookout for books to come.
Would I read more of this series: Absolutely. I cannot wait to see the direction the series takes.
footnote: I normally don't read the note to the readers at the end of the book. Terrible I know, as I also write my readers notes. For some reason I did this time, as was shocked to see my name in the note. Just proof that we authors do read reviews (even if we shouldn't because sometimes it hurts more than it helps. But it's pathological for us to do so) My reason for stating this: words have power; wield them wisely. There is a good chance the author will read them.
There was definitely a great expansion into the characters in this. We see a more humanistic side of Damon, struggling to find what his feelings mean and what it is that he's doing wrong. I definitely think Rogers is my favorite character in this, the sweet friend of Damon with lustful intentions, but I like that he turns out to be far more than just a molly looking for a good time with Damon. And Frost, whom I can't wait to see in future novels. At first, I liked him and his personality, and I watched the slow decay of his character as he showed his "true" self to Damon.
I really enjoyed this, especially how, even after believing he was tossed aside by Byrne, Damon still clung onto the idea of him, and with such an optimistic ending. Absolutely cannot wait for more!
