The bigger the secret…
…the greater the body count.
Brooklyn never expected to be on the run, and that too with her companions. With the Syndicate hot on their heels, she sets out on a mad dash around the city to keep them all alive. Fortunately, with a resourceful human by her side and with the help of the shifter, Brooklyn sees a way forward.
Dominic might still have reservations about Brooklyn, but as the danger looms, the more willing he is to risk it all to keep her safe. When the mystery of her father’s death is revealed, he realizes that they have more in common than he originally thought.
Unfortunately, the Syndicate never allows anyone to leave that life behind. If Brooklyn thinks the death of her father is something they are trying to hide, while setting out to destroy her, she is horribly wrong. There is a darker conspiracy hidden in the walls of the place she used to call home.
Her heritage is shrouded in such secrecy, that the Council will do anything to keep it concealed.
Even if it means burying Brooklyn along with it. Something Dominic strongly disagrees with.
4 out of 5 (very good)
LOWER WORLD is the second book in the Infernal Regions for the Unprepared series and remember how I said the first one wasn't too fast-paced? Yeah, well, we're back to the crazy and frantic pace Maya Daniels is known for!
Don't get me wrong, it is still smoking-hot, and I love how Ms Daniels drags you along into her story, but for me, it just lost a bit of 'something' in the pace. Brooklyn and Dominic are heating up and the trust is building, but with all the action going on, I felt like I missed part of that. Alice is a cracker, as always, and I am loving her role in this.
Now, I was warned about the ending of this book, so I was expecting something. Usually I end up throwing my Kindle away in disgust at the typical cliff-hanger endings, but this time, this time I was okay with it. Maybe it's because I was warned, or maybe it's because although I know Brooklyn is in danger, she is too tough to go down easy, PLUS she has her crew coming for her. And then there is the whole question mark about her mum. So, yeah, cliff-hanger but one I'm happy with.
I am still loving this series, and can't wait to see where it goes next. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go and lie down, get my heart rate down, and be ready to start the world at normal pace, not superspeed!
