Kieran has stepped up to take his place as the ruler of magical San Francisco. As his girlfriend, that unfortunately means I'm under the magnifying glass. Everything I do is noticed, from how I act to how I style my hair. Most notably, of course, is how little I know about my magic.
The Hades Demigods want me on their team, and they don’t plan to ask nicely. Kieran and I are both under fire. They will kill him to get to me, and they'll take me by force if necessary. It is essential I learn more of my magic.
With no other options, I do what scares me the most - I summon the last Spirit Walker to help train me. Except, he's a loose cannon with looser morals and learning spirit is treacherous. I might evade the Demigods only to be lost in spirit forever.
As it says in the blurb, Kieran has stepped up to take over San Francisco, but Lexi hasn’t quite found her place yet. She has an office in the government building, but she insisted that she not get a huge office just because she’s Kieran’s girlfriend. She has a small office and does charity work from there. She’s having a hard time adjusting to being in the spotlight and “dressing” the part. She just wants to be herself and go with jeans and t-shirts, but she can’t do that as the woman who stands beside the Demigod of San Francisco.
While finding her way through her job, she also is still trying to learn how to be a Spirit Walker and better control her magic. The last SW she knows of is dead and was an assassin, but desperate times and all. She brings his spirit back and he tries to teach her some things. She’s a natural of course, but some things are just hard for her to wrap her head around.
As if this isn’t enough drama in her life, Kieran and Lexi get attacked by one of the Demigod of Hades – of which there are 3 biggies. One of those is her father, whom she’s never met. He has killed off all of his children so Lexi’s not really anxious to meet the guy. When the battle gets intense, and finally over, they realize that people are hurt, missing and sadly, dead. This puts the couple and their group of friends on a mission with a deadline and they’re not sure they’ll make it in time to save everyone.
This was another great book in the Demigods of San Francisco series. I really like what Breene has done with the relationship between Kieran and Lexi and can’t wait to watch it develop more in future books. This story, however, was a sad book and for me, lacked the humor that made the previous three books. I know you can’t have a ton of humor when you’re working with death, obviously, but until that occurred in the book I wish there had just been a lighter side to it all. I’m not sure how to explain it.
Overall, I really loved this book and can’t wait to read book 5 in the series.
Rating: 4 out of 5
