Nine months have passed since Grace Fortune saw the boy she loves, Jared Lorn, die before her eyes. But Grace’s suspicions have her wondering if Jared really dead. Along with her friends, she sets out to find answers, and the investigation leads to an unexpected place: Silo City, an abandoned silo complex that houses as many dark secrets as it does forsaken people.
Very much alive, Jared’s on a mission to save the girl he loves by collaborating with the enemy—a young, brash rock star named Lester Crow who fronts the punk metal band Blood Moon. Jared’s “deal with the devil” will take him on a cross-country journey into the heartland of darkness. The music of Blood Moon is a weapon against God, and Jared must wield this weapon while trying desperately to preserve his mind and soul from its power.
Jared and Grace are desperate to be reunited, but first, they must defeat the demonic forces arrayed against them. And pray that Jared, a Nephilim forsaken in God’s eyes, has a chance at a future.
|I’m still trying to sort out how I feel about this book. Even though I jumped into the series with book two, it grabbed my attention and I really wanted to find out what happened (which I consider the mark of a good story). It was easy to come in at book two and figure out what was going on as well as developing connections with the characters. The story, however, let me down a bit in the last 1/4. It felt a little rushed and didn’t really set up another book. I assume there will be a book three, but there was no lead in for one. If the series ended now, it wouldn’t be completely resolved, but there’s sort of a happy ending so you wouldn’t need to keep reading. Overall, I give the story 3.5 stars because it DID grab me and pull me in, though I ended it feeling a little underwhelmed. (If there IS a book three, I’m sure I’ll read it to see what happens.)|
