****First book in the series, Pandora's Box, is a MUST read or you will be terribly confused!!!!****
Hell’s become more than just a playground for the wicked…
Going to Hell was supposed to save Madison, but knowing she’s dead because of his failure leaves Nix with only one thing to live for. Revenge. With Micah’s help he learns to use his Messianic power. Anything for Mads has become his mantra, even if it means killing innocents to gather the power he needs to succeed. A tsunami he unleashes on a Gulf Coast city is stopped with magical interference, and Nix is more than surprised to feel Madison in the opposing magic. Can he and Micah set a trap to lure her out?
Pandora’s Box…once you open it, there’s no turning back!
Madison has done the unthinkable, opened Pandora’s Box to save Nix from Hell. And failed. She’s willing to risk her own life to rescue Nix, but she worries about the welfare of her accomplice in the mission and leaving her son behind. Following up on a lead, she’s ambushed by Nix and Micah. Shocked and hurt to discover Nix has become a willing participant of Hell, she’s more certain than ever she won’t escape the demonic fate her husband outlined for her. While in Hell, she discovers denying the emergence of her succubus is futile, which means getting Nix out of Hell after embracing her inner demon just became a very real dilemma…
Why did it take me so long to get to reading this book? That is a question I have been asking myself. I loved Pandora's Box and when I started reading Hell's Phoenix I had to go back to re-read it as I thought I was missing something. I highly recommend you read book one Pandora's Box so YOU will not be lost in book two.
You have Nix and Micah together no not like that but they are together to get revenge for Madison's death but is she really dead? Will Hell change Nix for the better or the worse?
Nix learns more about who is he is in this story and what his blood line holds. Now Madison has been working on a plan to get Nix out of hell but at what cost will it cost her?
I loved watching Madison come into her own in this one she has really grown from the first book. Heck she has even surprised Micah and we all know that is hard to do with him being a King.
We get new characters and you can't help but wonder how this will all end will Nix and Madison ever be together? Will Micah get Madison to rule Hell with him like he plans? And what is up with their son Amos exactly how powerful is that little man?
I found myself being pissed at Nix for what he had become but then found myself loving him towards the end. You can see the love he has for Madison even though she may not see it.
Micah man I don't know if I should like him or hate him. No matter what goes on with Madison he loves her which is sweet but the dude seems crazy just saying.
So in the end who do you like? Nix or Micah?
There is action, drama, love, hate, death, sex all rolled up into a nice story. One that will have you turning the pages quick just to find out what will happen next. Can't wait to read book three to find out more.
The world this author has created is amazing, the characters are so well developed and the plot is amazing. Demons, Angels, dragons, humans all come together to make one hell of a story.
