The Divinities #2
October 5th 2016
Technical genius and demi-goddess—a.k.a Divinity—Khloe Bradenton relies on no one for help, and she definitely doesn’t need comfort from anyone but her twin. After her parents were killed by the demons over two years ago, she graciously accepts her role in the war between the demons and witches. But when a creature far more dangerous than the ones responsible for killing her parents claims he is her guardian and steps in with help she never asked for, she is torn between her desire for the dark predator and memories of the painful loss she endured at the hands of her enemies and from those who claimed to love her in the past.
One of the last Death Demons still in existence, Jagger has pledged his life to the Goddess of Witchcraft, Hecate. Charged with guardianship of the Divinities—one particular spitfire, in particular—he was told never to approach them, but simply to aid from a distance. But when Khloe sacrifices herself to save her twin and best friend and thus becomes the demons’ prey, Jagger has no choice but to reveal himself to her. However, he is taken by surprise when the desire to claim her as his own emerges, and his need for her burns hotter than her Fire. But in the midst of the war, their feelings for each other could prove more dangerous than the demons out to destroy them.
Death’s Storm is book two in The Divinities series by Lia Davis.
The books are best read in order, since their is an over all story plot that continues from each book and we are leading up to a very big battle or something big.
I enjoyed Death’s Storm and found my self pulled in by the pacing of the story and Jagger. We get plenty of action that keeps you going and things progress nicely in the plot and character development. I was pleasantly surprised with how many surprises we got and I didn’t see or expected a few of them. It all added up to an entertaining read.
Jagger is an interesting character. I liked him a lot and would love to explore more on ‘Death Demons’ and his brother. The things we learn about Jagger and Khloe, WOW. I loved. As for Jagger he’s a character that is very powerful and everyone fears, so he lives a solitary life sorta ‘in between’ the good and bad guys. Khloe she dives in head first before thinking, goes in half cocked, and it feels like she craves adrenaline. Her behavior is explained and now I can see why she did the things she does.
Their relationship was fun to watch it progress. There’s so much sexual tension and lots of fun banter; between them. I also liked that Jagger didn’t necessarily try to control the independent Khloe. He respected her space, even though it was aggravating, but he found a way around it by working with her and joining in the mission. I liked Jagger and Khloe as a couple. They suited each other.
We are also treated to previous characters as well as a few new divinities show up and come into play.
All and all I had an delightful time reading Death’s Storm. I’m curious to continue the series and see how everything plays out. There’s more going on then we see.
