My Review

Hope continued on a few months after the end of Power. There is still danger on earth as the apocalypse is still on the horizon, the four horsemen are still here and the Rising are trying to open the fifth seal. Life for Allison will continue as normal as she can; her daughter is getting closer to her 6th birthday, she is engaged to her soul mate, David and they are planning their wedding. However, they will work together with the council to try and uncover Lilith’s plans and to figure out a way to save the earth.

I enjoyed how easily the story flowed from Power into Hope; the relationship between Allison and David continues to blossom and their passion sky rockets!! David is a descendant of Catsafonda, so he will remain chaste until he is married… He cannot physically move to third base until the Priest says those magic words!! However, once he does, their love for one another continues to grow and my heart swells for them both! There are still details that remain uncovered about them both that could lead to the prophecy being fulfilled.

In Power Damien died, so Lilith has stepped up to be Leader of the Rising. She is pure evil and nothing will stand in her way of her goal. There are things that even she can’t predict but she will use it to twist it to her advantage. She sets a lot of plans into action and pushes her subjects to their limits. I really don’t like Lilith, but she is a helluva badgirl!! If I met that dropdead gorgeous woman in a dark alley, I’d be scared out of my pants, she may appear all innocent on the outside, but she has a black soul!! Her followers hate her but respect her as a leader, as she wields a lot of Power!

Theresa has done a terrific job with the second book of this series. The plot grew effortlessly and the change of POV’s kept me captivated!! So much happened in this book and you can see that the story is still building for future books. There were so many new elements introduced in this book, some I predicted, others I didn’t and I can’t wait to see what Theresa will do next!! 

I received a copy of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review.
