I am really loving this series. In 'Wrath' book 2 of the Nighclif series, Maddy is dealing with heartache and prophecy. It is foretold that she would love two men. Well actually it's more complicated than that. Bottomline, the first she would love and experience heartbreak, the second would be the one she stays with.

Maddy's story picks up a few weeks after the end of book 1. She is not recovering well from some nasty injuries she received from the battle royale ending of book 1. Her lover, Bay

Wrath is the second book in Denise Tompkins' Niteclif Evolutions. The story takes up immediately, and I do mean immediately, where Legacy leaves off. (This review contains spoilers for Legacy, book 1 of The Niteclif Evolutions. If you haven't read Legacy, check out my review, then go forth and read Legacy. It's a terrific and necessary introduction to the Niteclif supernatural world of Wrath.)

As Wrath opens, Maddy Nitec

Wrath is the second installment in the Nighcliff series. This story takes up immediately where Legacy concluded. Maddy is foretold that she will fall in love with a man that will break her heart and have a love the defies the ages with a second man.
Bay and Maddy are not doing well. Maddy is not healing and Bay cannot forgive himself or Maddy for having to kill his father and sister. Maddy moves out of his house so Bay can have some space. Bay decides that they are over.
While Maddy is staying a

Ugh, my computer blurped and I lost my long rant - er, review. I suppose the tl;dr version is this:

Ms. Tompkins takes two books to do what Laurel K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series needed at least 5 to do, namely ridiculous love triangles with roll-your-eyes steamy sex scenes. However, unlike this book at least Anita Blake seemed to focus more on murder scenes and actual logic than Maddy does (for all that she is supposedly Sherlock Holmes's great-great-granddaughter). Not to say that Anita Blake

Good Read! I am glad that I read Legacy prior to reading Wrath.

I think there was too much of Maddy's personal love life in this book and not enough sleuthing. I was looking forward to some Sherlock Holmes crime solving to happen. It felt as if the "sudden" solving of this crime was more luck than actual criminal deduction.

Maddy also seems to be one unhappy lady even though every warlock and dragon want to bed her. She is either crying or "bitching" with no sense of happiness. She is one depress

I'm going to say it... I don't like Bay.

I can only hope Denise doesn't go all Anita Blake on this series because I don't want the Bay - Maddy thing to happen again or for a weird Hellion - Bay - Maddy trio to occur.

A little late with my review on this one. I loved it as much as the first and read it in one sunburned sitting in the back yard (with the exception of making dinner and stressing out that the story might carry on without me).
I adore Maddy and cheer along side her, she's a great heroine and I enjoy her point of view. I also like even though it's entirely from Maddy's POV we don't know what the ending is until she experiences it. She's a clever detective who doesn't reveal who done it until the ve

The second book was epic and awesome and full of amazingness that wasn't in the first novel. I loved it so much that I just can't wait for the third installment to come out. Despite the first book only being okay, the second book makes it worth reading.

Expect the unexpected...

I had the privilege of reading this book before publication. As always, Ms. Tompkins hits world building and romantic sizzle out of the park. Snark is high and dragons fly low in this sequel to Ms. Tompkins' debut novel, "Legacy".

I liked it, but it really did NOT go the way I wanted it, I really didn't understand the why of it, or the complete 180 maddie within 2 mins.... Dunno if I'm reading the next 1....

I hate talking about myself in the third person--feels too much like a eulogy and I'm not dead yet. So here it goes, one biography coming up.

Humor, be it light or dark, is critical to my mental health. Add a dash of snark, a little suspense and an occasional murder and you've found my literary voice. Oh, and smexy. Can't forget the smexy. My theory is a kiss should be meaningful regardless of leng
