Series: The Divinities #2
Title: Death’s Storm
Author: Lia Davis
Publisher: After Glows
Published: October 5th, 2016
I had thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series and was lucky enough to be able to obtain a copy of this, the second in series, a few days later. The series concerns the Divinities who are a special type of witch, demi-goddesses with unique powers. Their task is to fight evil and the demons currently endangering humanity. In this story on of the Divinity, Khole Bradenton is the highly independent, very powerful twin and a really jump in ask questions later type of person. This attitude has had consequences in the past, some good and others negative. This time, however, she jumps in to save her twin sister from demons and finds out she has her own personal Death Demon guardian, Jagger. He’s been guarding her for a while but this is the first time he’s shown himself – and it is also the time when they both discover they are fated mates! This is definitely something that Khloe rejects, she doesn’t want any male telling her what to do and certainly not a demon, even if they are on the side of Hectate, the Goddess of Witchcraft. As the two fight their attraction and the demons, life sure is going to get interesting again for all concerned!
This is an action packed second in series, a real page turner, with great characters and a plot with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing what will happen next. I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to read the third story in the series! As I said for the first book in the series, I have no hesitation in highly recommending this to anyone who enjoys magically wonderful romantic battles and adventures.
This is my honest opinion after reading an ARC of this book via Barclay PR and NetGalley.
Technical genius and demi-goddess—a.k.a Divinity—Khloe Bradenton relies on no one for help, and she definitely doesn’t need comfort from anyone but her twin. After her parents were killed by the demons over two years ago, she graciously accepts her role in the war between the demons and witches. But when a creature far more dangerous than the ones responsible for killing her parents claims he is her guardian and steps in with help she never asked for, she is torn between her desire for the dark predator and memories of the painful loss she endured at the hands of her enemies and from those who claimed to love her in the past.
One of the last Death Demons still in existence, Jagger has pledged his life to the Goddess of Witchcraft, Hecate. Charged with guardianship of the Divinities—one particular spitfire, in particular—he was told never to approach them, but simply to aid from a distance. But when Khloe sacrifices herself to save her twin and best friend and thus becomes the demons’ prey, Jagger has no choice but to reveal himself to her. However, he is taken by surprise when the desire to claim her as his own emerges, and his need for her burns hotter than her Fire. But in the midst of the war, their feelings for each other could prove more dangerous than the demons out to destroy them.
