Oh Miss Evangelista how could you leave me hanging like that? After all we went through together. The connection myself and I'm sure countless others had with Balthazar then you do that. tsk tsk but how i loved this book.
I found Arianne grew up and was glad she was questioning the undying love she had for Niko. but the shining star in all his magnificently dark glory was Balthazar, what a man! the first book for me felt it didn't give the series justice but boy oh boy am i glad i decide to read book 2. My only problem now is that i cant find a release date or info about book 3!
oh and for the record i thought death was a nice guy through out book one until of course the ending but now i feel like i misjudged him the whole time and he is just a sneaky S.O.B
Only a villain can save the day. During his thousand year banishment in the Nethers, Balthazar thought of nothing but taking over the Crossroads from Death. On the day he puts his plans into action, Balthazar finds the Crossroads on lockdown. Death has been stabbed by Brianne's Bitterness, a blade that slowly leaches him of his powers. In order to challenge Death for his seat and prevent utter chaos, Balthazar is forced into a mission to find the Redeemer, the only being capable of pulling out the blade from Death's chest. The only person who can identify the Redeemer is a human girl in the Crossroads whose soul is still attached to her body. Meeting Arianne Wilson pushes Balthazar's patience to the limit. In a deal he makes with Death, he must protect Arianne during their journey through the Underverse using all the resources available to him. He soon realizes the one he needs to protect is himself. For as much harm as it inflicts on Balthazar's body, trekking through the Underverse with Arianne is proving more dangerous for his heart and soul. Can the villain remain a villain when love gets in the way?
