About the book by RB Austin
Paranormal, 337 Pages
The war between Apollyon and the Trihune has begun.
Lucas scours the street in need of a fix. He captures his enemy instead of kills. Spins lies instead of truth. Seeks darkness instead of light. So close to the edge with no concern for the fall.
The map was foretold. Its key long lost.
Sent on a mission to find the key necessary to defeat Apollyon, Lucas meets Kate. Fiery, powerful, unable-to-touch-any-object Kate. As his feelings for her grow, the addiction inside him wanes.
Until he learns she is not meant for him.
Find the key. Find the way and triumph.
His future with Kate is bleak. The darkness, too hard to control. The key, still lost.
Can Lucas win the battle raging inside his body in order to win the war rising on the streets?

I give 4.5 stars for this second book in the series. While still containing the same good and bad guys, it was a look at one of the other members of this mysterious sect sworn to saving humans from evil called the Fallen.
It was a darker tale and in a way more believable than the first book. In this continuing story of good versus evil, we meet Kate, a Follower, a.k.a human and we do get a bit more about their secret world. The author moves from Lucus, a very well dressed Behnshma, who tries to battle his own demons, to Kate, a very strong yet troubled heroine, and then to the demons is well done.
The author makes the reader feel the emotional struggle all the characters in this story seem to have. Again this is a romance novel and as such, has many romantic moments, which I personally tend to skim over. The author seems to have a grasp of some Biblical concepts, which made the story twist even more intriguing. The introduction of a quest and mysterious prophecy was a nice addition.
This reader hopes more action scenes and less bedroom scenes are in the next book. It would help to see the origin story of the sect and why the Fallen are so powerful in the area. I guess I will have to wait for the next book to discover where this book’s shocking ending will lead. This is proving to be a very interesting series. Please let us know when you wish to publish them.
