Good read although the series has yet to win the heart the way that the Darkness Chosen series did. That said, I'm still buying the books...

I liked Aaron and Rosamund He's all the 'gentleman thieves' we've loved from Robin Hood through the Saint. She's the 'absent mind professor' so wound up in her work that she'd miss Armageddon. When she manages to notice the real world she is socially clueless and can't figure out what the excitement is supposed to be about.

Although there is a lot of Indiana Jones style plot going on [along with the romance when the hero can get the heroine's attention] most of it doesn't contribute hugely to the overall story arc.

Could you read this one without having read the first one? Probably not a good idea - the author has put almost all the backstory into the first book [although we get a few glimpses in this one also].

This is the second book in this series. One of the Chosen must find the final prophecy to save the world and put the Chosen on the right track to accomplish it. It still reads like a scooby-doo mystery, the characters don't seem to take their tasks seriously. And are quite often silly. In this series there doesn't seem to be the urgency of the impending apocalypse, and they are stumbling around trying to figure out what is going on while fallng in love. The love story is cute, but not the kind of love story that sweeps you away and leaves you panting for the next book in the series. Not a bad read, but not a must read for me.
