Banewolf (Dark Siren #2)

Summary:

Banewolf

New enemies are made. 

New allies must be forged.

Kali is beginning to regain her memories. In doing so, she discovers old secrets and betrayals that threaten to unravel her present and shake the foundation for Rhane’s belief in her innocence. While her maturing abilities present unique challenges, a bigger problem arises when Kali learns her ex-boyfriend has made a misguided deal with the enemy in order to win her back—a decision that may ultimately cost him his humanity.

Keeping Kali safe has become a full time job for Rhane. And struggling to gain control of the immortal Banewolf isn’t making that task any easier. The power to eliminate the growing threat against Kali lies at Rhane’s fingertips, but using it means risking his friends to the insatiable blood lust of a monster. So Rhane is forced to forge a shaky alliance with creatures he has sworn to destroy. Despite these new allies, the danger pressing on their borders intensifies, culminating in a heartbreaking and shocking finale.

The strength of the bond between young and ancient lovers will be tested…and if Kali and Rhane are to survive, they must find a way to be unbreakable. (Summary and book cover courtesy of goodreads.com)

Review:

In this solid sequel to “Dark Siren” we get to find out a lot more about Kali and Rhys’ past and what they’re going to need to do to survive.  This was definitely a story to move the plot forward, but I don’t mean that in a bad way.  There were quite a few gaps that I feel better about such as: what exactly are the other races, what previous conflicts were truly about and what are the implications for the future.

The thing I am most excited about is Bailen (!!!!) – is he who I think he is?  If so, I definitely didn’t guess that one right in the first book! I also enjoyed the new characters; the unintentional humor is fantastic.  I will certainly be jumping on the next book soon, there were plenty of cliffhangers at the end I must figure out ASAP!

Warning: Contains some violence

Rating: 4 stars!

Who should read it? Fans of the series – definitely start with “Dark Siren” or else it will be quite confusing!
