Jocelynn Drake really ramps things up in this second installment in her three part serial finale of the Asylum Tales. Before you pick this one up, make sure you have read “Demon’s Fury” first, because we jump right back into the action on page one.
Here, we follow Gage as he returns to the Ivory Tower where he spent nine years of his life, training as a warlock. Inside, the danger jumps to a whole new level. It’s tied in with the dark power that protects Gage’s basement and Lilith. It’s very cool. On top of that, Gage and Gideon finally face off and throw down, which I absolutely loved watching. The serial killer stalking the pregnant woman is still going strong, too. Gage is essentially running on fumes.
There’s so much action going on. This section of the story really reminds me why the last book made me so excited about the series. While the emotional elements don’t stand out very much for me, the world building and the danger/ action arcs are really engaging and well done. On top of that, the plot is never predictable. It keeps me interested and excited for what is going to happen next.
I am looking forward to the big ending, though I don’t know how Drake is going to wrap everything up in what little time is left. I’ll be sad to say goodbye to the series.
