5 out of 5 (exceptional)
UNDERGROUND is the second book in the Demon Guard series. Raith has been suspended from the school for a week. He is supposed to meet with Chancellor Ward after that time but, you just know, Raith and Nox have enough adventure during that week to last anyone else a lifetime!
The title of the book gives away the main part of this story but there were still twists and turns that captured my interest. Ambry? Oh dear. I will admit to feeling conflicted here. Disappointed - for sure, but also, slightly happy. I want someone who is Raith's equal and, at the moment, she isn't showing that. I don't know who, if anyone, is but certainly not her. I will keep my mind open and see where Ms Alsop takes me.
Once again, the relationship between Nox and Raith is outstanding and really is what makes this book (and series so far) superb. My heart broke for Raith when he said what he did, and I cheered for Nox's no-nonsense approach and forgiveness.
I've read two books in this series so far and both of them have been 5-stars. If that doesn't tell you something then I don't know what will. No second-book-slump for this series. It just leaves me wanting more. Absolutely recommended by me.
