    Compelling and Terribly Sassy

    *received an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review* My heart tells me 4 stars but the character development that happens in the same span as the problems showing up bumped it to a 5. Jesse is still an extremely sassy character with a dark sense of humor and shadier sense of manners. She's freaking amazing. Ally, her best friend, and the only other POV in this book, was a very strong character with her own issues she struggled with throughout the book. My only problem with the story was all the frustration every single little bugger conjured up for me whenever they did something. However, they'd quickly make up for it, which somewhat made up for the experience. The suspense and mystery, the thrilling of finding out what was going to happen next was on point, giving me minor headaches when I knew the bad guy was going to strike. Shrum has a way of writing that puts you in their mind so comfortably, sometimes you forget that you're just the reader and not a zombie. The plot was compelling with more things revealed about Jesse that I would have never thought of. Her relationships with boyfriend Lane and Ally definitely gave me something to think about (I don't know why she's not with Ally). The other characters held their own and didn't disappear in the background, which I appreciated. It gave the story overall a more meaningful depth. It's a must read that you'll regret not checking out. Who doesn't want to read about the rare 2% of the population that could come back at any time and save your own skin?

    If you go down to the woods...

    This is my second read through of the book and although certain scenes had stuck with me (particularly the denouement in the corn field) I was not too surprised that I remembered little of the book. What did surprise me was how much I thoroughly enjoyed the tale - I remember leaving the series right around now feeling unsatisfied by the books and have to now admit how wrong I was about that. Maybe I am just a little more ready to embrace Urban Fantasy now than I was back in 2015, who knows? Jesse is still a fully infuriating character though and I am pretty sure I would give her a wide berth in real life. She seems to be completely unaware of the emotions and feelings of others and yet obsesses over Lane and Ally continually. That said the descriptions of her interactions with Caldwell and the hallucinatory Gabriel are well grounded and do make me warm to her a little bit. Ally is still my favourite character though, even if she is a bit of a doormat. The tension ebbs and flows through the book and you do get chance to draw breath between each encounter with The Church and it's acolytes. This book is really all about the action though and although there is some fleshing out of the characters it is still the plot that takes centre stage. It is a little more linear this time and less convoluted than in the first book so you don't waste time flicking back a few pages to find out who this person that has suddenly sprung up is. Thoroughly enjoyable action with a supernatural twist.
