Caleb has spent the last six months adjusting to life possessed by the vampire spirit Gray. Unfortunately, after the events of Fort Sumter, the other agents of SPECTR view him more as a ticking time bomb than a co-worker.
The one bright spot is Caleb and Gray’s boyfriend, federal exorcist John Starkweather. But John has problems of his own. A supernatural killer is on the loose in Charleston, stealing the hearts of its victims to extend its own unnatural life.
This is a book I’ve been anxiously waiting for, for months. The crazy part about that was that I knew that kind of anticipation would be something the book could not live up to.
Boy was I wrong.
At first, I was a bit nervous, but by chapter two, I was fully on board. John, Caleb, and Gray are still coupled up, but things are a bit different. Everyone in SPECTR knows what happened at Fort Sumter and fellow agents stay away from our loveable drakul…which means they stay away from Caleb. With Season Two, Ms. Hawk begins her intro to a new slew of characters such as Barillo, their new boss who is a royal jerk and Zahira, John’s new partner who is nothing like his two previous partners. (Though I do hope we’ll see his old boss every once in a while. I really liked her. And I wonder what’s going on with Sean.)
It’s a short read, but well worth it. We meet a demon who actually could best Gray, not to mention having rubber duckies exploding over a bridge – and who wants to miss that?
I have the feeling new demons are going to crop up even as Caleb tries to figure out who he truly is.
Okay, I’m not above begging, Ms. Hawk. Book Two PLEASE! Pretty, pretty please! Like soon 😀 I’m hoping we’ll have a return for John’s old boss, as well as his partner Sean and Tiffany. After all, this season is set to be quite fantastic and I think they won’t be able to keep themselves out of it 😉
As for the audio portion, once again Brad Langer lends his wonderful vocal talents to the voices. Whenever I read Gray I can hear it in his voice and probably always will 🙂
