Series: Mythology (book 2)
Blurb :
A demon with a pure heart, Micah Condie lives his life by a code of ethics, but breaking that code may be the only way for him to survive. A supernatural entity in her own right, Hope Gentry would do anything in her power to protect her loved ones, but she may be the one who puts them in peril.

When the Demon Impiorum challenges the laws that keep guardians and demons in balance, ancient enforcers of justice intervene. Micah, Hope, and their mentor Jonathan become entangled in a conspiracy that will test even the deepest love and trust.

Someone will commit an act of betrayal. Someone will forever abandon a loved one.

Someone will enter THE WICKED
This was my reaction when this book was finally released to the world.
This book is riveting and exhilarating, Helen did a fantastic job at following through with the theme of justice. It was a great blend of what we all thought was right and what is right, the lightness and darkness of the stories has really been thrusted outward this time around.
One of our favourite characters has to face his darkest demons pun intended :p He has to cope with his biggest fear, the thing he knows he can no longer hide from. He fights the darkest part of himself for the longest time, yet he slowly realises to save the people he loves he can no longer do that, he has to because the beast itself. Helen did such a phenomenal job at turning the very thing we hate into the very thing we need to survive. In reality we should have been upset with his change but it had the opposite effect. I wanted to protect and help him because it was so heart wrenching to see him suffer so much.
Micah changes a lot in book two and sometimes it was really hard to read it. But it was nice to see that even when having to give in to temptation and do unthinkable things he never lost his soul and the goodness that's within him, no evil can truly love. He definitely because more intoxicating and desirable, he was very relatable to.
Hope changes more and more, I had hoped that maybe her life would have simplified a bit but I was wrong. Her life takes a darker turn, she's handed something shocking, and learns something new about herself that will blow all of our minds. My heart went out to her many times through out the story :( poor Hope. The one thing I admire most about her especially after this book is the fact that even when she is knocked down she gets back up and keeps fighting. Plus I love the fact that she never seem to lose faith in people even when you think it's pointless. She one of the very rare female characters that I actually like and can admire.
Jonathan oh Jonathan *shakes head and sighs* I have to give props to Helen for making the impossible the possible....She actually made me hate him a bit.
I bow to you Helen :p We get to see the more ruthless and scarier side to Jonathan, it was truly an eye opener for me but in a good way, makes him seem more human then just an immortal. It was hard to see this side of him but it's great to be exposed to every side of this man. He's not what he seems in many many ways. I'm still a Team Jonathan fan even if I wanted to punch him out on many occasions ahahah . He was able to redeem himself near the end *holds tears* so wanted to hug him.

This book left me with a gaping hole in my heart that was only filled when I read the next sentence. It's exhilarating, awe inspiring, gut wrenching and heartbreaking. To say this book never blew my mind would be a lie, it did on several occasions.
I give this book 20 stars out of five just because I can and because I just love it that much. Having read the first book I had no idea what direction she would take her story, I must say I was pleasantly surprised. She did an astounding job at creation a world that's filled with demons and guardians and make it believable and relatable. It's not your typical good verses evil story it's more compelling then that. The plot is bewildering and still has me reeling from it. The new characters she introduced are well written and fit like perfect pieces in a puzzle *coughs coughs* even though I'm sure she knows I despised one of them hahah. I know I will be impatiently waiting for them all for come back in book three and see what it has to offer. I wonder how she will torture us with that one :p
Be prepared to get mad, have your heart race and your eyes to cry a river, this book is one hell of an emotional ride, but it's worth it all. Get ready for one heck of a book hangover (still have mine), oh and be ready for the end to twist in a way you don't see coming and will leave you craving more. The wicked lady did it again with this masterpiece. <3
