Title: Wicked Bite
Author: Jeaniene Frost
Series: Night Rebel #2; Night Huntress Universe #15
This book picks up shortly after the previous book ended. Ian has lost parts of his memory but he remembers Veritas. When he realizes she left him, he is determined to win her back and uses some ruthless tactics to see her again. They also now have to deal with all the souls that Dagan had in him being released into the world.
I enjoyed this one but not as much as the first book. The beginning of the book is a bit slow because Veritas and Ian are apart. Veritas is determined to keep her distance, even though she doesn’t want to. I think Veritas was being a bit stupid about leaving Ian to protect him, especially considering how old, smart, and dangerous she is. She could have easily stayed and actually made a dent in finding the missing souls.
“Whether you’re Veritas the Law Guardian, Ariel the vampire-witch, or Death’s scary demigod daughter. Doesn’t matter. In all your forms, in every manifestation of yourself, I love you.”
Ian really showed his ruthlessness, determination, and love in this one. I loved Ian’s determination to be with Veritas and make her see the error of her ways. These two are a great couple and they are so deadly when they work together. Also, there were a lot of new revelations about Veritas’s lineage, which was very fascinating. I really love learning more about her abilities and her family.
While a slow start, once these two reunite they action really starts happening and it’s nonstop from there. I couldn’t put it down once it started and I enjoyed it. We meet a lot of new and interesting paranormals in this one and I really hope we see some of them again, especially Ashael. He was a very interesting character that I want to learn more about. Also, we finally get some clarity on Ian, Bones, and Spades’ lost mate Timothy, and it was unexpected.
Overall, I enjoyed this one. I can’t wait to pick up the next book to see how these two deal with the new situation they find themselves in.
