A little more Days of Your Lives (Paranormal style) at the beginning, but overall one of the better followups I've read in quite some time. Actually, I thought it was even better than the first. Comparatively, I still noticed a few mistakes, but it's still better polished overall. It also seemed more humorous, sometimes to the point of crudeness, but I took it in stride because it was still quite funny. This book also flowed better, even more engaging (if that's possible), and the story itself left me breathless, which was the true reason why I liked it so much.
Before I get to the plot, I highly suggest anyone who hasn't yet read the first book, to start there. This isn't a standalone, and anyone attempting to read it as such, will be utterly disappointed and confused.
The followup to Love is Darkness starts off exactly where the first book ends, which is sort of a rarity, if you ask me. I especially liked the expanded world building and flashbacks involving the fey.
Word of warning. This one has way more sex than most PNRs even, but I would still be hesitant to classify this solely as a PNR. Contending with the heavy sexual and romantic theme is the heart of this book's story. The Fey are a long died out race, or so everyone thought. The Fey King has waited centuries for his chance at revenge, and he's intending to get it at all cost. The fey subplot is actually pretty interesting and balances out the romantic/vamp subplot quite nicely. That, and it doesn't exactly follow the same old Hero's journey paradigm.
My second caution is to those who despise cliffhangers. I would suggest holding off until the next book gets released, because this one is a doozy.
After a lot of swearing and only a little nookie, Valerie Dearborn has decided to make a change. No more lusting after Lucas, the hot, but emotionless, vampire king who can't commit. Instead she's going to make it work with Jack. After all, not only is he breathing, but he's the love of her life....Isn't he?
Valerie is an Empath, with supernatural abilities that seem to do nothing more than give her the hots for Lucas. Once upon a time, Empath's had a purpose. They were ambassadors to the Others--Fey, Witches, Werewolves and Vampires. They could settle the emotions of a Werewolf and make Vampires feel again.
But that was long ago.
Lucas isn't about to let Valerie go. He needs her to help him find the Fey, last seen in the Colony of Roanoke, South Carolina, circa 1587. He still believes they are the key to restoring balance to the world and the only way to keep vampires under control. They won't trust him, but they will trust Val.
Between Jack, Lucas and Rachel, Val knows life won't be dull. Nor will it be the normal, 2.5 kids kind of life she's always wanted.
As their enemies close in, Val must ask herself what life is really about-trust, duty or mind-blowing orgasms? And even if she finds the answer, she may not live long enough to enjoy it.
In Love is Fear we start off with a brief glimpse back in time where we meet Cerdewellyn King of the Fey & find out the fate of the Others. Where they disappeared to & why. And than it picks up right where we left off in Love is Darkness, with Val in quite the predicament. From here on out this book does not slow down or take a break at all. Lots of action, wise-cracks, jealousy, rage, violence & drama. It's almost exhausting. Val's life gets flipped upside down as she has to learn how to survive as an Empath. She doesn't know her powers, how to use or control them. Her blood-bond to Lucas makes life surprisingly enjoyable & yet frustratingly ever more complicated. She needs to figure out where her relationship with Jack goes from here, what does she really feel for Lucas & weather or not she really wants to continue on with his quest for the Others. We see further into Jacks head, to the root of who he is & the disturbing reality of what he has become will shock, anger & hurt you. With Marion in a silver-chain wrapped coffin at some undisclosed location, we get to spend some quality time with her consort Rachel. Violence & pain is second nature to her, something she needs to survive on a fundamental level & the person that makes her will make you cringe. Flash-backs thru out will give you the groundwork to who exactly Cerdewellyn is & what he is like. All I can say is.... OH MY!!
As our fabulous four begin their journey to Roanoke to find the Fey and the Others, it doesn't take long to realize that everyone has their own hidden agendas & motivations. -Why does Lucas REALLY want to find the Fey & where does Val fit into it? What are his plans for her?? -Val knows she will never have the "normal" life she always craved so where does that leave her? How can she fall for two completely different men with one thing in common (their complete lack of any emotion other than anger & lust)? Common sense tells her neither is good for her and will only end in death & heartbreak, so why can't she walk away?? -What is Rachel hiding? Why has she become so obsessed with Jack & how deep does it go?? -Jack has been hunting & killing Vampires for as long as he can remember, revenge is all he knows. So why does he keep coming back to Rachel, why hasn't he killed her or really want to & why does he feel drawn to her even though he hates & despises everything she is?? What does he do now that revenge is out of his grasp?? There is so much deception & half-truths in here, you dont know who or what to believe. No one trusts anyone, snap-judgements & bad decisions are flying all over the place. It leaves your head spinning!! Heartbreaking truths come to light while more questions are raised & the ending will leave you in a Tizzy. A cliffhanger would be putting it mildly. It will make you scream, throw your Kindle across the room & bang your head off the wall!! Fantastic, nail-biting, crazy-sexy-hott read!! Bloody-good time!! Well I'm off to read Love is Mortal, FINALLY!!!!! =) xx
