Evolution made music history when one bandmate turned vampire and another joined the vampire hate movement Preservation Group. Gene is trying to cling to the music as his relationship with Kerstrande begins to spiral into the darkness of hidden demons. Jaded by his years as a vampire flunkie, Kerstrande uses his newly won power over New York City to destroy his enemies and protect Gene. But a demon called a Fallen begins to take control of KC, slowly devouring his soul and through him the entire city. Battling against the evil that wants to destroy him, Kerstrande fights to hold onto Gene’s brightness.
A power unlike any other grows within Gene and shines like a beacon to the demons surrounding him. Realizing that only he can save his lover, Gene is willing to do anything to shake the darkness loose. Even if it means reshaping the future, the band, and his own existence.
So as much as I did like the first book in this series, sadly this one was just not for me…
With this book Genesis and Kerstrande start of having problems so they break up and get back together then later on in the book it happens again. Well I have to say I am not a fan of a lot of on and off in a relationship between the two MC’s happening in a book so that got a little annoying.
Then there was the way Kerstrande treated Genesis by the way he talks to him, then letting him go off and get hurt by one of his associates. Yes he did have some good moments but all the bad things he did too Genesis overshadowed that for me so I was left thinking Genesis could do so much better.
I do understand Genesis’s character more know and how much he does care for his family and friends. Also there was his loneliness which I think made me feel worse for him being in a relationship with Kerstrande because honestly to me he deserved so much better. So sadly after this reading this book I no longer feel like they fit together so well anymore.
I still loved the world this author built and were she was going with this story. There were just a few parts sadly in this book that unfortunately overshadowed the good for me.
So I am sad to say this book was just not for me…
