Rating: 5/5 stars
The book is split into two parts. The first part of the book starts right after Spellbent ends. Jessie is under house arrest with Cooper, Pal, and friends. She finds out that she can’t control her new fiery hand when her emotions get out of control and ends up going into Fairy with Cooper to strike a deal with the Fairy about his brothers and their renegade situation. The second part of the book Jessie, Cooper, and the Warlock are stranded in a rural Texas town where a very bad devil has them trapped and is playing with them. Well the devil finds out that picking on Jessie is a bad thing.
The book was non-stop action and I devoured it. I also laughed out loud a number of times and made “ew, gross” faces a few times. Like the first book, this one isn’t for the faint of heart. There isn’t a ton of tenderness here and the descriptions are gory, grisly, and gritty. Even the sex scenes (which there are more of in this book than the first) are pretty hard, fast, and furious. The book is darkly funny though and I enjoyed actually getting to see more of Cooper in this book. It was great to learn more about both Pal and Jessie’s new powers. Some of the scenarios that Snyder comes up with are so strange that I have no idea how she thinks up this stuff; I am glad she does though because it always keeps me guessing.
