Before you read this review I would suggest you read book one, Karma, if you have not done so yet. Each book ends with a cliffhanger and picks up where the one before leaves off.
Amanda Bishop is now attending NYU and holding down a job as a waitress in a diner. It has been three months since she helped save Alex Remington’s brother Jesse, Alex her ex-lover and witch hunter. Alex has kept his promise to leave her alone but he now appears in her nightmares. Her ability to read auras is gone and she has not read cards in two months.
Amanda is rooming with her best friend Bonnie who has always been behind her. Although Amanda comes off as an unlikeable character there is so much more to her than meets the eye. She grew up being hated by her mother and being told that she was evil that does not lead to being a sweet, loving and warm person, no it leads to a person building a wall around themselves.
The story takes a turn when a knock at Amanda’s door ends up being a dying Alex and his brother Jesse. In addition to being severly injured he is also wanted by the police and if all that isn’t bad enough Alex made a deal with a demon and in twelve days his soul will be collected. Amanda is determined to find a way to release Alex from his deal and it seems that by finding his soulmate he could be saved. Unfortunately, they don’t have much time to find his soulmate and perform a spell that would prove it.
The search begins for any woman that Alex remembers being close to. Amanda’s life becomes more and more complicated, she is wanted for the murder of a girl she threatened, Alex is going to Hell and his time is running out and a demon is after her. In spite of the fact that Alex and Amanda’s relationship is a love,hate relationship and they can barely act nice around each other I am convinced that it is love.
I love this series and although there are times it moved slowly the end result was a story that kept me glued and left me wanting more. There is a cliffhanger that left me hoping that book three would answer all questions and would be out very soon. The sign of a great book to me is that it keeps me reading and leaves me wanting more.
