What can I say other than OMG WOW!!!! I'm always a fan of Lexi and now is no different. Now bearing in mind I actually haven't read the proceeding book - oops I bought a pile of Lexi's books at Shameless 18 and am working my way through and forgot to read book 1 before book 2. However it really didn't matter; this book does just fine a a stand alone on its own merits and the characters and back story are easy to pick up.
The passion between Evangeline & Xai is incredible and something we all aspire to. The characters are all so real I can picture them in my head and trust me - Kalida sure wears her evil on the outside these days. I loved learning little morsels about the other "deities" demons and supernatural/goddish menagerie throughout the book and really hope there is more indepth exploration into all their stories.
