Definitely pick this one up

This is second installment of the Darklight series. And it does start out with the scene of Lorelei when she was younger and learning how she was the host of one of Satan’s minions, which pretty much sets up the pace for the rest of the book. ...

Have to read this

I have seen for a while and all the talk about it, so I knew I had to read it, and I have to say that I am glad I did. I am all for the “bad boy”, but Dante was one character that I had a hard time...
