MY KISS CAN KILL.

I used to be ordinary Samantha Day, but that's changed. Now, after one dark kiss from a dangerous boy, I can steal someone's soul...or their life. If I give in to the constant hunger inside me, I hurt anyone I kiss. If I don't...I hurt myself.

Bishop is the one whose kiss I crave most, but if I kiss him, I'll kill him. Then there's another boy, one I can't hurt. One whose kiss seems to miraculously quell my hunger. They're both part of a team of angels and demons that's joined forces in my city to fight a mysterious rising darkness, an evil that threatens everyone I know and love. I just wonder if I'll be able to help Bishop-or if I'm just another part of the darkness he's sworn to destroy....

NIGHTWATCHERS

When angels and demons must work together, something beyond evil is rising...


Thank you Netgalley and Harlequin Teen for this ARC.

I have to admit I was not a huge fan of the first book in this series but this one was much better.  

What I liked: The writing is really good and I found the characters a little more engaging than in the previous book. Kraven, the snarky demon was my favorite and I would love to read more about his story.  This is an interesting take on the good vs. evil plot line and even the supposed "demons" are challenged to do the right thing, always a plus!

What left me wanting:  I had a difficult time connecting with Samantha and the romance between she and Bishop just didn't click for me.

Final verdict: Good sequel in the Nightwatcher's Series.
