Nightwatchers #2 Wicked Kiss

Day by Day Harlequin Teen's books are getting even harder to review with their increasing standard of goodness.......but i'm not complaining. Presenting Nightwatchers #2 Wicked Kiss by Michelle Rowen.

Here is the summary of the book:

MY KISS CAN KILL. I used to be ordinary Samantha Day, but that's changed. Now, after one dark kiss from a dangerous boy, I can steal someone's soul...or their life. If I give in to the constant hunger inside me, I hurt anyone I kiss. If I don't...I hurt myself. Bishop is the one whose kiss I crave most, but if I kiss him, I'll kill him. Then there's another boy, one I can't hurt. One whose kiss seems to miraculously quell my hunger. They're both part of a team of angels and demons that's joined forces in my city to fight a mysterious rising darkness, an evil that threatens everyone I know and love. I just wonder if I'll be able to help Bishop-or if I'm just another part of the darkness he's sworn to destroy....NIGHTWATCHERS. When angels and demons must work together, something beyond evil is rising...

Truly when Angels and Demons start working together, then its a far greater evil that we are dealing with here. Balance is important, it is very important....and when it gets threatened then things get out of order. And this is what Bishop and the motley group of Angels and Demons need to control alongwith the much appreciated support of Samantha.

There is nosy, there is broody, there is hateful, there is sincere, there is vengeful and there is suspicious. Every flavor is here. Every mood is here that describes this rather unusual congregation perfectly. But Sam, Bishop and Kraven have their hands full into trouble. And the problem is way bigger than before......time is a the limited time period they need to fix all the grays, find a way to save Sam and try to fix almost everything that could go wrong.

The writing, the prose.....its impeccable as ever. This is now a time bound affair and that makes it all the more interesting than ever. And out leads fulfill every criteria we have for them to make this a journey like no other. The dynamics between these three really came at a head here. Sam is a full blown gray but is also a nexus and the hunger to kiss Bishop is too much.....hard to control when that victim is so way good looking than should be allowed..... Bishop is also not fairing well. He is a fallen angel now and slowing he is loosing his mind trying to keep it together.....thinking about it all...all that passion and that everbound love makes the hair stand on its HOT!!!!!

The epic fight at the end really took the topping here. And the subtle and sublime manner of Ms. Rowen weaving the characters and making us sit tight and see is to the end.....commendable.......well done I say. Ms. Rowen you have put up a story and such rich characters......Kudos to a job well done......

And since is the final book in this series, so i'd like to say that u an keeping my fingers crossed and that this is not hopefully the last time we see these characters and hopefully you will revisit them in the future again.

"Dark and Exhilarating. This is a tug-of-war to achieve the much needed balance but for Sam, Bishop and the group this is a time sensitive mission and it sis running out even as they speak. An epic conclusion that serves to take your heart away......"
