Helen Boswell loved to get lost in the pages of a story from the time she could sound out the words. She credits her dad, an avid fiction reader, with encouraging her to read ALL OF THE BOOKS on his shelves from the time she was a teenager. Originally from upstate New York, Helen spent much of her early adult life tromping around in Buffalo, NYC, Toronto, and Las Vegas, those cities now serving as inspiration for the dark and gritty urban backdrops of her stories. An author of both urban fantasy and contemporary romance, she loves to read and write characters that come to life with their beauty, flaws, and all.

Micah may be a demon but the last thing he wants to do is hurt anyone he loves. He fights on the side of good and tries his best to resist temptation. He may just have to turn to his darker side if he is to survive. Hope only wants to protect those she loves. She may be in danger though as it seems she has more power than even she knows and it could be the downfall of many. Micah and Hope find themselves in the middle of danger as everything they have ever known is questioned and they aren't sure who to trust. I really loved the first book in this series and looked forward to what would happen in this one. Hope is adjusting to her new life and still trying to lead a normal one. The one thing that stays the same is how much she loves Micah. Even with others telling her they should't be together she isn't going to give up on him. Micah really struggles in this book. He is still on the side of the good but he finds he has to be somewhat dark to live. It isn't an easy decision for him and he really pulls away from all those he loves. Darkness is a big part of this book as it seems the good guys may not be all good and they have to see who they really can trust. Even with Micah pushing Hope away she continues to try and help him. They are all in danger and have big decisions to make. There is a few twist and several shockers that keep you wrapped up in this book. I would recommend you read the first one simply because it so good and this is an amazing series. You can't help get pulled into the fantastic world this author created and continue to crave more. More people need to know about this wonderful author.
I read this book after hearing about how great it was over and over from my friend Laura at Littlereadridinghood.com. She luuurved it and Micah especially. I was a little hesitant, and I really have no idea why. I’m glad she talked me into it. Hope really does have some issues. Poor girl. She can see things that other people really don’t want to be seen. Ugly things. Things that no one else should see. Ever. Because she can see their secrets, it keeps her from having relationships with other people. I imagine it would get pretty lonely. She has her brother that she can rely on, but that’s hardly having a real life. When she first meets Jonathan, I knew something was up with him, but I wasn’t sure what. He seemed a little off, but I couldn’t quite figure out where he fit into everything. I, personally, really liked his character. I liked his snarkiness, and his overall character. He entertained me. Micah enters the picture and things change. To me he seemed almost embarrassed that he was different from other people. He may not have understood what he was exactly, but he still seemed apologetic. I assume it’s because he was afraid of what he was becoming, and understandably so. It didn’t seem like he was becoming anything good. He was growing into something potentially awful. I liked that his family was involved in the story. I really liked the dynamic between all of the characters. They all seemed to blend in well with each other in each role they played. They each had their place and filled out their characters in a pretty good way. I wish there had been a little more story behind Jonathan, but it really wasn’t his story, so I’ll get over it. Micah was such an emotional character for me, that I really felt sorry for him. He had no idea what was going on with himself, and that has got to be a scary thing to think you may have such negative potential. He could very easy go down the wrong path. That’s where I think Hope’s role comes into play. She makes him want to be good. She gives him that unconditional love that we all want. She gives him HOPE that he can overcome the darkness and live in the light. Overall, this was a good book. I enjoyed it. I liked the storyline and characters. Helen Boswell did a great job of creating a world that was similar enough to ours that I could see it as my own. The action scenes where good, as were the lovey dovey scenes. It was a pretty well rounded book, and I definitely recommend it as a good way to pass a rainy weekend or just because. I look forward to reading more of Boswell’s books.
I am an avid fiction reader - some of my all time favorites include Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia & Ender's Game. The Mythology series can now be added to that list of favorites. The first book of the series was fun, well written and full of intelligent imagination. The 2nd book, "The Wicked" is even more well-developed and provides perspectives from both main characters - which makes it even more fun to read! I will wait in eager anticipation for the 3rd book of the Mythology series to arrive.
