Okay, okay – maybe it wasn’t quite that bad, but it was pretty horrible. In fact, the only positive was that I read it really fast. However, that might have been caused by my inability to ever not finish a book I’ve started and wanting to end my suffering as quickly as possible.
WARNING: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS MATERIAL WHICH SOME WILL SEE AS “SPOILERY” – BUT IF YOU HAVE HALF A FUNCTIONING BRAIN CELL YOU WILL TOTALLY FIGURE OUT WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN ANYWAY SO I’M NOT SPOILER TAGGING ANYTHING
The whole idea behind this book sounded pretty kick-ass and the cover art was A.W.E.S.O.M.E.. Khara (who happens to be a ginger and therefore looks NOTHING like the cover – clue #1 this might not deliver to its full potential) was raised in the Underworld as a ward of Hades, but wakes up one day in
Anyway, it seems the Motor City has been battling some rogue supernaturals whose M.O. is sucking the souls out of humans and a group of brothers is in charge of keeping the city safe
(With less make-up. Maybe.)
Khara is found by one of these fellas who almost immediately figures out that he (and his band of merry men) are her half-brothers . . . and let the incest jokes begin. Yeah – even though these dudes are wicked hot demigods who spend their free time looking for soul sucking supes at a bar called “The Tenth Circle” (get it, reference to Dante = oh so witty), this brother must not have much luck with the ladies because he can’t stop talking about how he’d like to bang his sister. Note to Amber Lynn Natusch, you’re no George R.R. Martin – leave the incest to the pros.
Now the brothers and Khara – and a super hot badboy angel
(there just had to be a sexy fallen angel to complete this horrible group of characters, right?)
who no one likes, but somehow still lives in the house with them, all must ban together in order to stop the evil that is threatening to take over the city and wants Khara for his own. Did you read the whole review? If so, I’ll give you three guesses who the bad guy is and the first two don’t count.
