I am quickly becoming a fan of Marjorie Liu. The worlds she spins are different and interesting. The struggle to keep the evil from devouring humans, both demon and alien god-like beings who are only energy needing a human skin to keep from going insane with no confines to their energy. Between demon, alien, and Maxine Kiss, demon killer - alien, human, and demon mixed in one well guarded body that is the last survivor of the bloodline that must save human kind or have a child and pass the legacy on to someone else. It's about veil between light and dark riping open and choas reigning free on earth. About the labyrinth that likes many worlds. It is about strength and about knowing who you are. I love the characters. I read book one and kind of felt unsettled, but in reading this book I am seeing the story much more clearly. Love love love it.
Good follow-up to first book.
I really liked this second book in series, more so than the 1st. really had more action, more involvement with the characters closest to Maxine. I really kinda frowned upon was Maxine seemed mostly to be in the dark of who & what she really was and what she was capable of, but she was coming to terms with who & what she is. I really liked the way Maxine related to her human emotions/etc. definitely a good read. WIld Hunt is the 3rd in this series, which i am sure will be just as enjoyable. Many hoorahs to Ms Lui. She is a superb author in how she writes.
