Jessica McClain, Book 4
Synopsis: Jessica is on her way to Hell. After settling a fragile truce between the vampires, werewolves and witches, the last thing Jessica wants to do is face the demons head on. But when the Prince of Hell kidnapped her brother, he set into motion a chain of events that even Jessica doesn’t have the power to stop.
Now, Jessica must go into battle again. But Hell is a whole new beast… new rules, more dangerous demons, and an entirely foreign realm. And when Jessica is dropped into the Underworld too soon, without protection or the help of her friends, she must figure out just how powerful she can be… or she will never make it out alive.
Review: I like this series and it is true that I was curious to discover this new novel. I must say that Jessica still has many things to do. However, it is also true that some issues have bothered me a bit but I’ll talk about them later.
Jessica goes quite unexpectedly in hell alone and without any means of protection to save her brother. But this world is all new to her and she will have to understand the laws that govern it as they are very far from what she knows about. It is in this universe that she is going to have to try to avoid the prince, to ally with a very powerful demon who may well have a different plan on her own and of course to find her brother who is currently being tortured. But soon her allies will join her to help her in this quest for our greatest pleasure.
I enjoyed getting to know this hell that we hear so much about throughout the volumes and to discover its peculiarities because yes there are several. It was also interesting to see how Jessica was doing when she had to face events alone. However, it is true that her rides in hell were perhaps a bit too long for me, even if we learn more like that. The action starts in a mad rush when all the characters are together and I loved to see them all together to face this new obstacle. By cons, there is a moment that seemed a bit surreal for me and I just blocked on it. As they’re trying to escape our characters stop later in the quarters of the prince of hell while they do not know what’s going on and take a shower. I admit I was very surprised because the time does not lend itself. However, I loved the result and resolution of the story between the prince, her concubine and of course all our heroes.
Jessica will have to once again deal with the evolution of her powers and the advancement of the prophecy, and I’m curious to see what she will become in the next novel. Oh yes, because many issues are introduced here and will have a great impact in the future. However, I am a little disappointed by the end of the novel and by the cliffy which is ultimately for me a little too redundant with other volumes and I would have liked to see something different than another disappearance.
I feel like I have given a lot of points but the book is ok and it was a pleasure to see Jessica and the gang. I’m curious to see where Amanda Carlson will lead us in the future.
