To read my review of the first book, click Here.
After using her abilities to find a killer, Mala LaCroix is still a psych ward because everyone thinks she is crazy. In order to get out of there she must make a deal with her Aunt who practices black magic in New Orleans.
Landry is in jail for attempted murder of Mala and involvement in her mother’s death. But after a near death experience, he now has paranormal abilities of his own.
Mala and Landry must join together to stop the dark forces that surrounds them.
I like Ms. Angie’s style of writing. However, this book could have been a whole lot better and I expected a whole lot better.
Mala and Landry are still doing there back and forth dance. Neither really wants to move forward in a relationship because it will complicate the already complicated. So instead they bull crap their feelings and each other. This was pretty much the focus of most of the book. It caused me to lose interest very fast because you would think that each would grow a pair after almost dying and carpe diem but nope not at all.When something FINALLY happened between the two with no regrets I clapped for them. It seriously was about time.
Another issue I had with the book was the love triangle that shouldn’t have existed in this book. Mala needs to grow a pair and that is all I can say about that.
My final issue with this book was how much of an idiot Mala was and really allowed her emotions to take over. It was as if she completely forgot what happened in the first book minus her mother’s death.
But I do give the author points; when things started to get good they got good. But it really did take way too long to get there. This book was disappointing because nothing really changed; not Mala and Landry’s relationship, not their trust issues and most definitely not Mala’s common sense.
2.5 Pickles I do want to read the last book though. I still have some hope in it.
