Title: Shadow Cursed Series: The Daughters of Darkness #2
Author: N.L. Hoffmann
U.S. Marshal, Jacey Noble, has just taken a well-deserved vacation when one of her fugitives ends up murdered. Detective Trent Vinolva is less than enthusiastic to take on a new partner, especially the hot-blooded Jacey. When they encounter a werewolf at the scene, Jacey is thrust into a new world of supernatural beings and high-stakes encounters with no one else to turn to but Trent.
Jacey discovers that she’s a Shadow, one of an order of powerful beings that are able to manipulate darkness. Amidst the whirlwind of discovering her newly activated powers, Jacey must solve the murder while battling sexual tension with Detective Vinolva. Things get interesting when the pair is led to Jacey’s demon father and her flame throwing sister. Finding herself in a new world on the brink of supernatural war, Jacey doesn’t know who to trust. She must rely on instinct to traverse the unknown.
With the Supernatural Council and Trent, Jacey attempts to accomplish the impossible: evade the Shadows who are on her tail and solve a murder. The only assurance in Shadow Cursed is uncertainty. Jacey must journey down a trail of mystery, destruction, and romance.
The second book in the Daughters of Darkness series was not as good as the first one, but it was still pretty good. Jacey just finds out she has a sister, and that there are paranormals out there, and she must help stop the bad guys before it is too late.
However, she also has some personal issues with her sister, and with the men who keep trying to get her attention. She just doesn't know who to trust and who is really on her side.
This book was pretty interesting, and I loved how Jacey kept to the case and wasn't going to give up on what she believed in. I didn't like this one as much as the first one, but it was still interesting.
