3.5 stars

Burning Emerald was a good read but it didn't lure me in like Living Violet. With Living Violet, I couldn't wait to finish reading the book. But with this novel, it took me more than a few days, which isn't usually the case. But I'm one of those girls that once I invested time into a series, I need to see it all the way through. So regardless how empty Burning Emerald left me, I will go forward and read her next novel Fading Amber. Which also sounds promising, so let's see.

In this novel you learn a lot more about "Lilith" the demon inside Samara. And you also get to meet "Capone" Caleb's demon. That's where the book got interesting. They kept me reading. They are not pretty. These demons are greedy little things, so when their claws are out. No one is safe. Samara goes through a lot with her demon inside. Also you get to meet a new character who turns out to be very complex. I wasn't sure what to think of him. So that was really interesting.

Ms. Reed wrote a good story. But it fell a bit short for me. I can't really say where it fell short because I'll be spoiling it. However, I do like the way she writes her characters. Especially Samara, she's a really strong character with an awesome personality. I give this book a 3 stars out of 5. Overall, I do recommend this series to those readers who are into demons, incubus' and succubus. So if that's your thing then I hope you enjoy this series.

Thanks Flossie, I was a little worried to post this review. Because I love the author's way of writing, it's just this book didn't work for me. At least not as much as her first one did. But I will continue the series because I want to know how it ends. :-)
