Review for Gated by Amy Christine Parker

From the blurb I got the feeling this was about a society that was maybe a little out there with their thinking and beliefs, but it was a lot more than that, it about a cult ran by a seriously deranged man. Lyla is just 17 years old, stay off...

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. ...
