Book Review: Desolate by Ali Cross

ISBN: 1478190892
Published: July 3rd, 2012
Publisher: self-published
Read from June 13th to 30th, 2013
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Where darkness lives, all becomes desolate . . .
It’s been two months since sixteen-year-old Desolation Black chose Earth over Hell and her friend Miri over her eternal love, Michael.
Desi goes through the motions of life: school, training, remaining vigilant against the forces of darkness, but her dreams are full of the choices she wishes she could change. When she’s injured by a strange demon, old temptations arise, and the lines between good and evil blur. Desi discovers those choices aren’t so final after all.
And this time, the power of love—for a friend, for a lover—may not be enough to save her from the darkness that lurks within.

This is the second book in the Desolation series.  I reviewed the first book here back in October.

I loved this book so much more than the first one, and I did enjoy the first one.  This one though was amazing, I thought.  It was very climatic, and I was constantly trying to figure out what was going to happen. The second book in a series is usually the slowest (especially in a trilogy), but I definitely don't think that that was true for this one.  The entire book was just one epic event after the other, and I never knew what was going to happen next.

I'm not going to go into very much detail since this is a sequel.  I don't want to spoil anything for the first book, since I don't really have much to say.  I mostly feel like the story is too incomplete for me to talk about anything spoilery.  I need to read the last book first.

I can't wait to read the next book and see what happens.  The end of this one was definitely a cliffhanger, and I really want to read the next one soon!
