Summary

Book two in the Amazon best-selling Demigods of San Francisco series!  

I've agreed to work for a Demigod. My job? Find the spirit of his mother and release her before his vengeful father finds out and kills us all.   

Have I lost my mind?   

Thankfully, I don't have to do it alone. Kieran has brought in help.    

Bria Stevens is everything I'm not - magically savvy, edgy, and highly experienced. She's a Necromancer who loves to flirt with danger. With her help, I can suss out the clues surrounding the spirit of Kieran's mom, all while learning my potent and extremely terrifying magic.   

But as we work deeper into magical San Francisco, we uncover a minefield waiting to explode. A small misstep will have Valens at our doors. I'm about to find out that there are far worse things than mere death.

Essentially the second half of one book

As mentioned in my review of Book 1, these books are slight - chapters more than novels. Essentially Books 1&2 should be one book as the first ‘quest’ is completed. However, the completion of this mission was a little too easy to be truly satisfying.

Sin & Magic

This is a brilliant second book in the series, which is also funny, scary and lots of unpredictability load of fun.

Can't wait for more!

This series has me hooked! I love when authors find a new twist to a story with the ancient gods. The Olympian Gods are mentioned, but not in the forefront. Instead we get Demi-Gods with new takes on a world where magic is out of the bag and a mash up of awesome character - each of which I would love to see a stand alone book or series (Hint, hint)

The narration is well done. Proper inflections, accents, and voices. She's really easy to listen too.

Can't wait for more!

Too much SEX, Not enough Story

Maybe since I am older, I no longer find myself wanting to read about multiple sex scenes in a book, unless it adds something to the story, or is the premise for the book. That isn't the case in this book series.

I read the first two books, and half of the third but had to stop. I really like the general story; the main characters, and the side characters have so much to offer. I admire the cause everyone is fighting for. What I find incredibly difficult to stomach is when there are so many sex scenes, drawn out ones, that make me question the point of the book.

Alexis is the main character and I wanted to see her triumph and come into her own, but when she becomes infatuated with Kieran she is reduced to the stereotypical woman in a romance novel (These novels are in the Paranormal Fantasy genre, not romance) who falls on her back, and sees nothing else but her desire for him. She loses her ability to think like a rational person, her dialogue made me shake my head, I will never understand why female authors write dialogue for women this way, it is truly baffling.

Khristine Hvam on the other hand is a complete knockout! She is one of the best narrators I have listened to. She narrates Faith Hunter's- Jane Yellowrock series as well. If you would like a well thought out, and strong female character I would recommend reading her books over these.

Love this series!

I love this series, the characters, & world the author created. Love the dynamic between Alexis & the kids. Of course Kristine is able to bring this story alive like no other narrator.

Picks up right where the first left off

Not that I care about handbags whatsoever, but I could have sworn the end of the previous book said it was white… minor thing. I must admit I was pleasantly surprised… after reading the little blurb about the newest female character, Bria, I had expected competition over the demi-god. She’s a bit, okay, a lot, more nuts and a lot less competition. The kids are still smart as hell and pains in the butt like teenagers tend to be. I suspect I know where the item they’re looking for is, but maybe I’m thinking it’s too obvious… Who knows?
Nope, my guess was wrong… nice job… I thought I was being clever.
A little over 2 and a half hours left in the reading and I couldn’t help but say “Holy sh*t!” repeatedly out loud... 5 stars is not enough! And I’m not even done yet!! Poor Jack, lol. What else can I say… poor guy gets the short end of several sticks. I keep hoping he’ll get more good karma. And she really does need a bigger house. Again, nicely wrapped up with no cliffhanger type feel even though it’s obvious that the story continues. Very well done!

Huh

Overall 3.5 stars. Can't put a finger on why I was less pleased with this one than the last.

Of course Khristine Hvam is still extraordinary.

It seems that the part I don't like is the romance/sex. I rather like the story. I am wondering why a female MC needs to always be a love interest. The family and friendship angles are a very good part of the book.

Demigod of San Francisco

This is one of my favorite book series by K.F. Breene!! I have read them at least 4 times now. I love how she has all the witty characters. It’s one of the main releasing I love her as an author. I can get so lost in the books that it’s like I’m there; part of the world! Definitely recommend!!

pretty good, but souls are weird...

it's hard to comprehend some of the descriptions of what's going on with the ghosts, and souls. Descriptions get so intricate, and sometimes difficult to imagine.

Fantastic series!

Lexi's magic is exciting. She's such a bada$$! I love the camaraderie between Kieran's people and Lexi and her kids, they kinda all end up being a family. I'm excited to see where the story will go from here.
