About this Book :
One spark will rise.
Nina Kane was born to be an exorcist. And since uncovering the horrifying truth—that the war against demons is far from over—seventeen-year-old Nina and her pregnant younger sister, Mellie, have been on the run, incinerating the remains of the demon horde as they go.
In the badlands, Nina, Mellie, and Finn, the fugitive and rogue exorcist who saved her life, find allies in a group of freedom fighters. They also face a new threat: Pandemonia, a city full of demons. But this fresh new hell is the least of Nina’s worries. The well of souls ran dry more than a century ago, drained by the demons secretly living among humans, and without a donor soul, Mellie’s child will die within hours of its birth.
Nina isn’t about to let that happen…even if it means she has to make the ultimate sacrifice.
This isn’t what I wanted but it was still perfect in its own way. The Stars never rise was mind-blowing with all the twists and turns, that hit you hard. In comparison, I liked this book a little less. Because the twists weren’t THAT shocking, but they still made me go “Now that’s cool.” This is still a fast-paced action-packed book full of vivid details and wonderful characters. The rogue exorcists are on the run and while protecting themselves from demons, they also have to deal with Mellie’s pregnancy and a new threat that has emerged, The Pandemonia. The first half of the book was okay, it was well-written but it didn’t make me feel anything but the second half is all “Ooh, no didn’t expect that one”, “You go, girl. Show those demons what you’re made of.” And then there’s the ending that had me thinking, “It’s so evil that it’s perfect.” If you’re thinking you’ll find something fresh and unique in this book, you won’t. But it’s still a rollercoaster ride till the end. Especially what happens in the pandemonia and the secrets, ugh it didn’t hit me as hard as the fake exorcist thing in book 1 but it still blew my mind pretty good.
