It’s been a week since 17-year old Zoe Jabril found out her best friend is a Guardian Angel, her boyfriend is a Nephilim, and a fellow classmate is a Fairy. What makes Zoe so special? She’s destined to unify Enlightens to battle evil—that is, if Demons don’t kill her first.
With ‘Project: Enlightens Unite’ underway, Zoe learns the history of the area wolf pack and realizes she’s in a race against time to get her newly discovered talents under control. Despite struggling to fight a mysterious attraction to her new neighbor, rescue her boyfriend from Demons, and travel into Fairyland to convince the Summer King to join the fight, Zoe must still attend high school classes so her nosy parents don’t suspect anything is out of the ordinary before Demons can mount another attack.
Zoe will need all the help she can get, from the most unlikely of sources, if she’s to save her boyfriend’s life and prevent the Devil from escaping Hell on her eighteenth birthday.
I actually enjoyed this book more than the first one and that does not tend to happen. At least not to me. The second installment of Kristin Risseghem’s series had more of a plot line that didn’t feel nearly as cliché as the last book. Then again, anything with werewolves makes things infinitely better in my opinion. The fairies also helped. I’m also glad that she decided to put more into this book about working towards the goal rather than being too dramatic.
The addition of Aiden to the story really added some uncertainty and I spent a lot of time trying to figure out if he was like how Shay seemed at the beginning of the last book or something bad. However, my favorite character in this book was Cali, she changed and I love her sassy-ness!!
This book was better than the first one and worth a read. Not my favorite book ever but still quite good. 3.5 beans out of 5 from me.
