The vampires want it. The demons want it, too. And someone is willing to kill Val for it.
Val and Fang have to find the powerful Encyclopedia Magicka before either of San Antonio's warring underworld factions locate it or the consequences will be deadly for the entire city. As usual, Val's vampire enemies (they still call her The Slayer) want her dead. Even some of her fellow demons may be less than trustworthy, since they'd like to grab the legendary book of spells before she does. Val has a personal claim to the Encyclopedia--her demon father left it to her when he died--but someone stole it recently. And that can't be good.
Battling vamps and dodging demons, Val struggles to unravel the mystery and find the thief. At the same time, she's fighting her attraction to sweet, sexy Shade--her favorite shadow demon. Rumor has it that Val will lose her part-demon, vampire-fighting powers if she gives herself to him.
With a crowd of vamps and demons out to trick her or kill her, it's not a good time for her to risk her job as the city's best vampire hunter by falling in love. The stakes are high and aimed right at her heart. But Lola, Val's hungry little lust demon, doesn't like being denied. Will Lola finally get her way?
What's a part-lust-demon-teen supposed to do? Whatever it takes.
What I thought:
I'm glad I stuck with this series, I think they are getting better with each book. The more I read about Val and her demon, Lola, the more I understand and like Val. I'm happy with the resolution of Dan, since I like Shade better, but I did find it a bothersome when Val kept referring to Dan as her ex-boyfriend, when they weren't really together in the first place.
In this one, we see Val work with both the vamps and the Demon Underground. While I liked the storyline there, I'm still hoping that Val does go back to the SCU. I really liked that angle in the first book, although with this ending, I'm not sure if that will happen. But I do have to say, that the ending to this book let the story wide open for the next book, which should be very promising.
Again, I have to add a warning to parents. With the adult content in this I would really suggest 17+ for the content. While it wasn't as bad in this one, there is still some suggestive scenes in this.
