Hello friends! Today I have my review of Runes of Mortality.
Runes of Mortality is the second book in the A Demon’s Fall series by G. Bailey.
Trigger / Content Warning: Abusive Relationship, Alcoholism, Sex Scene
Evie survived a trip to hell, literally, to find herself somewhere even more dangerous, with the angels. Angels who do not want to let her leave, not without a paying a price for the life they saved.
Angels. Demons. Protectors and more secrets than one world should hold. Who can Evie trust when everything is a lie? When it’s time for the assassin to return, and to claim what is hers, who will be on her side?
18+ Reverse Harem romance.
From GoodReads [x]:
“REVERSE HAREM” IS, LITERALLY, THE OPPOSITE OF “HAREM”, WITH A GROUP OF MALES CENTERING ROUND A SINGULAR FEMALE, USUALLY WITH THREE OR MORE MALES. QUITE OFTEN FOUND UNDER THE ROMANCE GENRE.
When I sat down to read Runes of Mortality, I’d realized that it’d had been a while, precisely because for a second I couldn’t remember who everyone was. I’m glad I remembered though, since Runes of Mortality is quite the busy book!
The plot within this sequel moves tremendously fast. It felt like I was riding on a roller-coaster while I read Runes of Mortality. I almost had a hard time keeping track with everything that went on. With that said though, we learn quite a bit about everything that happens. We also learn of where the story is headed towards in the third book.
Much like the first book, Runes of Mortality has five points of view. We read from Azi–the demon overlord from Hell, Trex, Nix, and Connor–all three are Protectors. And finally, we also read from Evie’s point of view.
Pleasantly surprised with how the first chapter is from azi’s POV. And I liked how we saw that Azi genuinely cares for Evie. Rather than what Evie thinks how Azi cares for her. We also saw how the guys
(save for one, but he’s denying it) cares for Evie, and how Evie cares for them as well.
Character wise, we learn a lot from everyone. Within Runes of Mortality the characters open up with Evie about their secrets. Most of all though, we get a ton of answers about Evie and her biological history.
With all of that said, I cannot, and will not, deny the fact that there were parts of Runes of Mortality that felt completely unnatural. And that is saying something, since this book is a paranormal novel.
Saying that, I’m truly enjoying where the A Demon’s Fall series is going. There’s never a dull moment within these books.
Much like the first book, Runes of Truth, Runes of Mortality ends with a cliff-hanger. G. Bailey sure knows how to write those cliff-hangers.
Over all I enjoyed Runes of Mortality a little more than I thought I would. Yet I am so glad that I did enjoy this sequel.
I give Runes of Mortality, 4 stars.
