When the life you wanted has crumbled beneath your fingers, there’s nothing left to do but pick up the pieces and soldier on. You’ve done this before.
But what happens when you no longer feel like yourself anymore? When fires spontaneously start-up around you, when you hear growling coming from underneath your bed, and you no longer recognize your face in the mirror. What happens then?
Ghost-hunter Perry Palomino doesn’t have much time to find out. Now, the evil she used to hunt is a lot closer to home. It’s inside of her, taking over her life bit-by-terrifying bit, and there’s only one person who can help her.
If part of her doesn’t kill him first.
So, it’s been a while since I read this book, but my initial reaction still stands… I thought that the last book ended in a cliff hanger? Yeah, right…. It seems that Karina Halle just can’t leave well enough alone…
Perry isn’t in a good place throughout much of this book. She’s trying to put up a good front and be everything to everyone that they expect her to be, but it isn’t working. She desperately wants to get over Dex, but that’s easier said than done. She’s not quite sure who she can trust and who she can’t and the ‘ghosts’ from the past aren’t helping.
A couple of mysteries are solved in On Demon Wings, but nothing is quite resolved. Those people that she should trust totally aren’t quite the people she thought they were and there are a few new dangers coming from unexpected places. It takes a while for Dex to make an official appearance in this one, but once he does… yeah, did I mention that there is a cliff hanger?
There are two novellas between On Demon Wings and Into the Hallow, which I’ll be reviewing next. I’ll give you the same recommendation that was given to me… don’t skip the novellas! They may be short, but they’re packed full of little tidbits that add much more than expected to the series.
