First of all if you didn’t read the first book “Confronting The Demon” do it! I was lucky enough to receive a Arc of the next book(which I was waiting for after reading the first) I was not disappointed! This author writes sci-fi like no other, kick butt action and suspense all the way through both books. Alloran is known as the destroyer of worlds, does he deserve this title? The council and other residents blame him and his renegade so-called friend(Laydon)for the demons that plagued the city and killed loved ones. Gisayne keeps collapsing and they can’t figure out why, it has been happening more and more ever since chasing Laydon to the seven Hells. Alloran needs to figure out what’s wrong before she dies. He can’t trust anyone in the citadel to help him even his assistants in the lab, he thinks their spy’s sent from the counsel to keep a eye on him. The city of Ehsua is still falling apart, walls come and go, could there be a link between this and Gisayne? Will Alloran find a way to redeem himself in time to save Gisayne? Is there anyone he can trust? I found myself wanting to kick butt myself at times. Gisayne and Alloran have my respect, as does the author for her awesome writing skills. Can’t wait for the next book to be released! Read about demons, wizards, hellcats, sorceress all in this series.
