A Beautiful Evil (Gods and Monsters #2)- Kelly Keaton
A Beautiful Evil is the sequel to Darkness Becomes Her. If you haven’t read it, you need to. The series transcends genres managing to be dystopian, paranormal, and mythological in a brilliant feat. A Beautiful Evil picks up right where Darkness Becomes Her left off and boy is that an interesting place. Ari and Sebastian just make sense and what they go through together in this book makes every page worth reading. In addition to a great romance this book is ALL ACTION. Ari’s a doer more than a thinker and damn is she busy. Part of that is because Athena is such a good villain. What I love the most is that Keaton places these tiny details in her narrative that end up being important. The future destroyed and then reclaimed New Orleans is a great setting and there’s beauty amidst the decay and rubble. I will definitely keep reading this series, especially since at the end of this book there’s a great twist laying out the plot for the next. That’s all I’m gonna say because I hate spoilers. Just go read it.

This is EXACTLY how I feel about New Orleans, and Venice for that matter.
Darkness Becomes Her-Kelly Keaton
Set in New Orleans post a series of devastating hurricanes that have all but destroyed the city, Darkness Becomes Her captures both post-natural disaster NOLA and the magic of the city itself. I love New Orleans which made it impossible for me to dislike this book from the start. Not only did the NOLA setting impress me, but the plot is well conceived—putting a mythological classic twist on the paranormal. I love it when author’s go old school, and by old school I mean ancient Greek. Ah, but there is more! A fiery female lead and a hot love interest. A perfect start to a great new series.
