Wicked Kiss by Michelle Rowen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Release Date: February 26, 2013
Summary: MY KISS CAN KILL.
used to be ordinary Samantha Day, but that's changed. Now, after one
dark kiss from a dangerous boy, I can steal someone's soul...or their
life. If I give in to the constant hunger inside me, I hurt anyone I
kiss. If I don't...I hurt myself.
Bishop is the one whose kiss I
crave most, but if I kiss him, I'll kill him. Then there's another boy,
one I can't hurt. One whose kiss seems to miraculously quell my hunger.
They're both part of a team of angels and demons that's joined forces
in my city to fight a mysterious rising darkness, an evil that threatens
everyone I know and love. I just wonder if I'll be able to help
Bishop-or if I'm just another part of the darkness he's sworn to
When angels and demons must work together, something beyond evil is rising..
It is rare that I find a second book better than the first, but this sequel did just that. A lot of the things I felt were missing in Dark Kiss seemed to be recovered in Wicked Kiss.
For one, I felt that the character development was lacking in Dark Kiss. This book seemed to reach back into the story, bring out the characters and put them under the spotlight. Rowen kept Samantha true to herself...Stubborn! I loved learning about Kraven and Bishops past, digging into Steven's head, and how they all were brought together in the end.
There were so many different directions this book seemed to take, and sometimes confused me. There were many twists and turns that threw me off, but a few were very predictable. Some points seemed to be repetitive... I got it, Sam was a REALIST. But the one problem I had the most was the ending. Everyone trying to be the hero, the martyr, the selfless one. I think I literally rolled my eyes at this. But all in all, I can say I was left feeling good. A great ending.
This series had a great plot, clean and entertaining.
Thanks to NetGalley and Harlequin for giving me the chance to read and review the ARC.
