About The Book
Do you have to be a monster to fight one?
Erin Evanstar is a demon hunter, a protector of humanity from nightmarish predators that feed on people’s fears and flesh. They are settling into their dual life of being a teen and hunting demons.
When a tentacled horror abducts Erin’s partner, José, Erin and their family go on the hunt to get him back. But Erin gets an ultimatum: help the Fallen Angels bring on the apocalypse or watch José die.
Erin will do anything to save José, but fighting monsters comes with a grim price–becoming one themselves.
In this second book of the Evanstar Chronicles, Sara Codair gives us more of a unique and fantastic non-binary hero. Erin Evanstar is a teenager. Erin is also a demon hunter. As if the regular angst of those years isn’t enough, they now have to rescue their partner from the tentacled demon that took him.
Codair continues to walk that fine line between dark horror and hopefulness that was a hallmark of book one. Even when Erin and their family are faced with seeing Jose lose his life or the end of the world-literally, there is a thread of optimism that keeps the reader engaged and sitting on the edge of their seat.
This is a great second book. It lives up to the fun and intrigue that started the series and keeps the reader interested in seeing what could possibly happen next. I definitely recommend this for fantasy and YA fans.
In writing this bio I am taking a rare break from reading! I always have a book on hand just in case there is time to sneak in a chapter or two. As a military spouse and a mom of two boys, it is amazing how often I am hurrying up to wait. Luckily for me I don’t have a favorite genre so I get lots of fun authors to choose from. My education was in sociology and mental health counseling, so stories with strong character development are my favorites. Happily Ever After is the best part of romance for me because real life is hard enough.
