At the end of the first book in this series, Scarlet unwittingly released scores of the damned into the world. Her magic was new and she did not know the power or the magnitude that her actions would rain down on the world. But she has help fighting them, so she is not alone. The Connelly boys are right there with her, some more reluctantly than others. Jack has strong feelings for her, which Scarlet fully reciprocates. The other three Connelly boys are not quite as enthusiastic about Scarlet’s newfound role in their lives, but she helped save their mother, so they will always be grateful for her help.
When Scarlet’s father starts acting strangle, Jack realizes that he has a demon inhabiting his body. Scarlet will do anything to save her father, even if that means entering the Otherworld to fight demons more powerful than she could imagine. Jack and Scarlet set out on a mission to save her father and most likely the world.
Adding to the small job of saving mankind, the budding relationship between Scarlet and Jack begins to bloom. Like any relationship, it has its ups and downs, but considering the world as we know it might end if they don’t work together, it makes the stakes so much higher than your average lover’s spat.
Once again Ms. Velez has delivered a solid plot with multidimensional characters. While Scarlet and Jack are saving humanity, Rory, Connor and Lucas are becoming more complex. Their magic is developing and they are finding out they can solve problems without Jack, who usually comes to their rescue.
This is the second book in the Celtic Witch Series. It is also the second book I have read by Ms. Velez. The third book in this series will be released in late 2019. You could read this book as a one off novel because the previous book is referenced enough to understand what is happening. But I suggest reading The Connelly Curse first because it is a must read for Urban Fantasy fans. And more importantly, you will want to know the story and characters from the beginning.
DISCLOSURE OF MATERIAL CONNECTION: I have a material connection because I received a review copy for free from Author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
