After Jaiden found Daniah in Juniper, they returned to Garnet City. Daniah is destined to become Queen of Zoku, a race of angel half-breeds who protect the humans from a soul-stealing evil. Now, Daniah is learning of her abilities and responsibilities as queen. Just as things seem to be going smoothly, a group of Zoku show up to help, led by an angel, Shelly.
Mallory has been on her own for most of her life, trying to protect and save those around her. She is Toyek, and she's been hiding in plain sight while fighting for her life. She is intent on finding her friends' daughter, whatever the cost, when an innocent trip to the supermarket takes an interesting turn.
Orion has been hired to find a female and, as a Tracker, finding people is his specialty. He finds much more than he was looking for when he runs into the beautiful Mallory. While pursuing both his target and the resistant Mallory, he finds himself fighting to defend Princess Daniah and the Zoku.
Can Orion and Mallory work together to help Daniah be the hope the Zoku so desperately need? Or will a few surprises and a tragedy be all it takes to break the united front of the Zoku fighting against the evil Meikal?
My Review: Finally in Garnet City, and Daniah is about to learn about being queen and all that comes with it. It also helps to learn about the power she has and keeping control of it. You know, just in case something crazy happens or whatever. Once she gets the hang of things, Daniah thinks that things shall stay calm. Until another group of zoku appears.
I love seeing Daniah's character grow and seeing just what she is made of. After all she is there hope in this world of good and evil.
Shelly, Mallory, and Orion are great characters and each add their own weight to the story. I liked Mallory the most and getting to know her and her story. She has been on her own forever. Even the supermarket brings unknown things. Then Orion steps in her world, and little did she know they would be working together to help keep the zoku safe.
I loved book two even more than book one and omg the ending had a cliffhanger like no other. Why is book three not in my hands?! Sigh....I so hate waiting for the next book at times like these.
