My Thoughts:

Okay, so when I read the first book in this series, what I really loved about it was how action packed it was. Or so I thought until I read THIS ONE. Holly God, but Mythology: The Wicked never gave me a break. Even though it took me about two weeks to finish this book, I was never bored, I was just busy with school which is a pain in the butt (we have a different system than the US so our high school is more like college). I found myself sneaking in a few pages every time I had a break or when the teacher wasn't looking and I could never get enough of it. There was always something happening and in this second book, we delve deeper into the world Helen Boswell created, meeting essential characters and getting hit with new revelations all the time.

My favorite thing in this book was the fact that it's written from both Micah and Hope's POVs. I lurved it, absolutely lurved it. While I liked Micah in the first book, I wasn't his number one fan which changed in this book. Getting inside his head and looking at things his way made me see a new side to him, added with the sharper edge he was sporting in this book and I was really hooked (sorry Jonathan, I still love you). It was very important that we got a look inside Micah's head because things happened with him just as much as they did with Hope, if not more. There were a few things that he did and I didn't like or that I thought he should have told Hope about, but I kind of understood his thinking at the same time.

One thing in the first book that I wasn't a huge fan of, was Hope and Micah's relationship. I thought it was too sweet and kind of insta-love that I really hate in books. In this second book not only are the stakes higher, but things are hotter too. With the changes and things Micah was going through, his demon side was coming out more and there were definitely moments were I had to fan myself and that were not so sweet like they were in the first book.

To fans of this series, you should absolutely read this book because it only gets better and better, for those who haven't read it, you totally should. This is one series you don't want to miss. Helen Boswell knows how to capture her readers in a world full of danger and creatures like no other. Definitely a must-read.
