Good and Evil have the same face; it all depends on when they cross the path of each individual human being. – Paulo Coelho
Special Agent John Starkweather and drakul possessed Caleb Jansen are in that does he?/doesn’t he? phase of their relationship, the part where they really aren’t quite sure where they stand with each other because everything between them has happened so fast and so… well, let’s face it, things are a little weird, what with Gray in the mix, always just beneath the surface of Caleb’s every thought and emotion, trying to convince him to gnaw on possessed people’s neckmeat to get to their ghoulish center. Not to mention being the cause of what appears might become a push me/pull you decision between exorcism and co-existence, and then there’s the trust factor and Caleb not being altogether too fond of the agency John works for…
All I know is that Book #3, Reaper of Souls, isn’t going to come soon enough.
This installment of the series is filled with some gut-clenching excitement amidst relationship tension, not to mention the ghastly bits and the parts that made me think, whoa, that Jordan L. Hawk’s imagination is kind of impressive in a very cool way. It’s an episode of twists and turns in which the hunter becomes the hunted in a game of avarice and mutiny, when the garden of good and evil becomes tangled with the thorny truths and prickly deceptions of betrayal and set-ups, when a former ally becomes the enemy because he covets, blurring the lines of whom the true monster is.
My only advice is this: don’t miss this sequel to Hunter of Demons, because Jordan L. Hawk has done nothing but deliver another fresh and fantastic book to add to her repertoire. It’s filled with plenty of action and suspense, top notch storytelling, not to mention how very skillfully she baits the not-so-fast-dear-reader hook, offering just enough to lure you in and then leaving you dangling, and doing so happily.
