The hunt for her father leads Isis on the turbulent path of deceit, death, and demons as she anticipates the dawning of the beast that stirs inside her.
I opened this book with high expecations after reading Creatura, because..how could it get better than the first book? My question was answered and my expectations were more than simply met. Fruits of Misfortune picks up right where Creatura left off, so it's great if you have both books and are able to get into the second one right away.
Now that Isis and David are together, we see a different, more developed, side of them and some of the decisions they make, made me want to throw my kindle across the room. You know what they're doing is a recipe for disaster, yet they go off and do it anyway and leave you clinging to a hope that things will work out in the end like they're supposed to.
We're also introduced to a new deity, Galilea as well as reintroduced to Eros. I adore Galilea, but Eros...While I have a soft spot for him, it's only because he's so well written. Let's just say that I love to hate him. I still also have a itsy bitsy crush on Galen. How can a character be so darn adorable???? I think I need some help.
Questions are answered, which only leaves room for more questions to be asked, leaving you hanging on every.single.word.
The ending...I wasn't expecting it at all, but you should probably have some tissues close by.
Another 5/5 Platypires from me...Even though I will now be going through withdrawls until the next book.
