In a matter of weeks, Savannah Cross has ascended, overcome a prince of darkness, and lost one whom she loved. Her powers have become a liability in the wake of her shattered world. Her rapid descent into a delusional vortex has made her unable to tell fantasy from reality. She knows her visions cannot be real and yet are as unquestionable as the air she breathes. Her only solace is the demise of the evil that would have destroyed her loved ones, but can evil ever truly die?
Willow watches as Savannah spirals into chaos, but is unable to help. She must answer Death’s ultimatum with one of her own. How will she leave behind everything to embrace a sisterhood of immortals, who do not accept her?
Savannah must pull herself from the dark void that has invaded her soul, while Willow must learn to embrace the hell-hound within, because an evil has awakened to avenge hell’s lost prince.
Will they be strong enough to face the wrath of hell?
There was more action than I anticipated, but it's balanced with sections that enhance the relationship between the characters. I LOVED the bickering between Willow and Death. There has got to be some sexual tension there! J.D. Stroube is not afraid to take plunges that other authors are too timid to take. She makes you believe that the world in her books is real by giving them trials, failures and loss.

I LOVED the Hellhounds! It was unexpected that the story delved so much into Willow, but still retained hold of Savannah's story. I enjoyed the dark quality to the writing and the mystery. A consistent factor with Stroube's writing is that she loves the unexpected, but in a good way. The path that the story takes is quite a bit different from what I thought it would be.I liked the first book in the series, but this one was a million times better.

I absolutely loved this book. I know that it's the sequel, but it could have been a book on its own. There was more action and it had a maturity that surpassed the first book. I could really see how the characters had grown up in response to their circumstances.I love how each character is coming into their own and has their individual roles.I think that this series is one of the types that keep getting better and better.

I am so psyched this book is finally out!! I loved the first book Caged In Darkness and read it twice, while waiting for this book to come out. I have to say, #1 Best New Supernatural Series!! #1 Best New Author!! You're so talented J.D.!!

Before picking this book up, I was worried that I would miss out on everything with Willow after the unexpected ending with her and Death in the first book, but WOW am I glad that I didn't. The POV alternates between her and Savannah in this book! The Hellhounds are spectacular. The relationship between Death and Willow is complicated in a uniquely, anxious sort of way. What happens with Izzy completely blew my mind! I am falling in love with Ash all over again! Caged in Spirit, here I come!
