Title: Devil’s Kiss
Author: Sarwat Chadda
There’s Nothing To Fear But Fear Itself….And Billi SanGreal.
As the youngest and only female member of the Knights Templar, Bilquis SanGreal grew up knowing she wasn’t normal. Instead of hanging out at the mall or going on dates, she spends her time training as a soldier in her order’s ancient battle against the Unholy.
Billi’s cloistered life is blasted apart when her childhood friend, Kay, returns from Jerusalem, gorgeous and with a dangerous chip on his shoulder. He’s ready to reclaim his place in Billi’s life, but she’s met someone new: amber-eyed Michael, who seems to understand her like no one else, effortlessly claiming a stake in her heart.
But the Templars are called to duty before Billi can enjoy the pleasant new twist to her life. One of the order’s ancient enemies has resurfaced, searching for a treasure that the Templars have protected for hundreds of years — a cursed mirror powerful enough to kill all of London’s firstborn. To save her city from catastrophe, Billi will have to put her heart aside and make sacrifices greater than any of the Templars could have imagined.
This book was interesting, I’ll give it that. The concept was good, but the overall book lacked a real hook. The beginning gave little to no history to some of the characters. It was also connected oddly, but enough to keep the story running. The real interesting part started near the end of the book when the action began, but before that, little caught my attention. There were also some confusing parts to the story.
I’m not going to put down the book like it was puke-worthy, or so boring you fall asleep, but it definitely is not on my greatest reads list.
“What, no balloons?” Billi asked drily.
“You want balloons, join the circus.”
-Billi and I don’t know who (hehehe…)
