Book Description:

With radiant, snow white skin and hair, Percy Parker was a beacon for Fate. True love had found her, in the tempestuous form of Professor Alexi Rychman. But her mythic destiny was not complete. Accompanying the ghosts with which she alone could converse, new and terrifying omens loomed. A war was coming, a desperate ploy of a spectral host. Victorian London would be overrun. Yet, Percy kept faith. Within the mighty bastion of Athens Academy, alongside The Guard whose magic shielded mortals from the agents of the Underworld, she counted herself among friends. Wreathed in hallowed fire, they would stand together, no matter what dreams or nightmares—may come.

My Thoughts . . .

The Professor Alexi Rychman has finally found his one true mate in Percy. Yet just as the couple embarks on a new life together in wedded bliss, the forces of darkness have return to settle the score once and for all. And this time things get even more personal.  

Percy may still be the youngest member of the guard but she soon become a force to be reckoned with. Her powers grow as time grows shorter as the guard scrambles to come up with a solution to stop the war that will soon be upon them.

Alexi is still one sexy and handsome male specimen but he is reminded that age is but a number and that his young bride is more than willing to show him a thing or two. The men of the guard are even more sexy no matter how tortured their souls may be. Only these women; Percy, Rebecca and Josephine are strong enough to deal with these men. *sigh*

I was pleasantly surprised of the romantic woes that Josephine and Rebecca faced yet it did not stop them from being honest not with themselves but also with the men as well. As of these characters had some dilemma to overcome and Ms. Hieber gave each them the right of amount of time for each character to sort through it.

Percy has more than one problem to deal with as her past comes to light. How will she deal with learning the truth about her mother’s death? Will she be strong enough to save not only her husband and guard?

I did not think it was possible . . . Yet Ms. Hieber has got me completely under her spell with her Strangely Beautiful novels.

Percy is one bright star that had not cheering her on but also had me at the edge my seat with excitement with each new page I read.

Seriously this spellbinding novel is one that can’t be just read once but many times over and over again. I was suppose to have this review done weeks ago but I just could not tear myself away from it long enough to work on my review.

The action, the drama, the romance and suspense is even better than the first book. Even with the amazing ending I can’t help but wonder what Ms. Hieber will do next with the Strangely Beautiful saga.

 I rate The Darkly Luminous Fight for Persephone Parker
5 out of 5 Stars.
