(Heven and Hell #2)
Trade Paperback, 332 pages
August 1, 2012
Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy, Young Adult Fiction
This second installment of Hebert's exciting young adult series is just as fascinating to read as the first one!
Having been brought back to life by the angel Airis, and given a paranormal power, Heven is now also the guardian of a secret scroll that must be returned to the catacombs of Rome. She and Sam must do this at all costs, or many people will die. On the way to accomplishing this task, they must deal with constant demon attacks, as well as the mysterious behavior of Sam's younger brother, Logan, whom Heven can't bring herself to trust. She refrains from making this clear to Sam, though, since she doesn't want to come between him and his brother. So she endures the discomfort, even as her suspicions about Logan continue to grow.
This novel brings in a very interesting new character -- Gemma, a fallen angel, who offers to help train Sam and Cole (who has been told what's really going on) to fight demons successfully. Although Sam is a hellhound, he must be able to deal with these creatures in his human form, as well, since he won't always have the time or opportunity to shift forms. It was quite fascinating to read how Gemma, whose feminine appearance belies great strength and fighting skills, went about training the two boys.
