Wicked Kiss (Nightwatchers #2)
 by Michelle Rowen


I 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 destroy.... 


When angels and demons must work together, something beyond evil is rising...


I really enjoyed Wicked Kiss, probably more than I expected.  I had enjoyed book 1, Dark Kiss,  enough that I wanted to read this, the second instalment, however I must say I definitely enjoyed this instalment even more.

Wicked Kiss is the final instalment in the two book Nightwatchers series and this in itself definitely worked in its favour.  as a result, though a lot happened in Wicked Kiss, the pace of the story was constant and did not seem rushed at all.  In fact, it kept me pretty much in the story till the end.

I wasn't sure about the whole Angel/Demon thing at first as I have read a lot of 'angel stories' lately but the story actually grew on me and seemed to get better as it continued and the fact that I didn't see all the plot twists coming made it that much better.

I did struggle a little with the characters,  There were some I liked, Demon Kraven and nemesis Jordan in particular but I found in general I had a difficult time picturing them.  While the characters grew on me also, I didn't always believe the characters in parts of the novel which disappointed me just a little.

Over all though, this was definitely a read I would recommend.  The story was a journey that I immensely enjoyed and was a little sad to come to the end of.

I give this story 3 1/2 stars
