Amaliya Vezorak never believed in happy endings…
When Amaliya harnessed her necromancer powers to defeat her greatest enemy, she believed she had finally found a happy ending with Cian, her lover and the master of Austin. That happiness is short-lived when the vampire ruling over San Antonio attempts a takeover of Austin in order to capture Amaliya and use her power for his own devices.
To make matters worse, Samantha, Cian’s ex-fiancée, is seeing ghosts, the untested vampire hunters of Austin are running scared as a supernatural war looms, a mysterious man is hunting Amaliya with the help of her one time lover, Pete, and Rachoń, the Summoner’s favorite progeny, appears to be out for revenge.
When Amaliya’s grandmother, a powerful medium, experiences terrible visions that reveal there is another necromancer vampire and she is crying out for help, Amaliya realizes happy endings do not come easily…

Okay, I believe I have gone on record many a time as saying that Rhiannon Frater is my spirit animal, right? Well this addition to the Pretty When She Dies series continues to back it up! Each page sealed the deal with me and made me want to devour this book in one setting! (Damn you real life!)
Amaliya is still very badass and ridiculously funny. I don't know if it's intentional or if it's just me and my random sense of humor, but she has that sarcastic charm that I love in a heroine. She's relatable but still a glorious work of fiction..I hope that makes sense? She continues to push her way, rather forcefully, to the top of my list of favorite characters!
As before the side characters are written very well. I didn't get any "Here for scenery and fluff" vibes from any of them. They each are individuals and are almost as interesting as the main cast. Speaking of which, some of the main cast from the first book have developed awesome new abilities, which makes them so much more interesting! Samantha has somehow gained some awesome powers and has become and even MORE enticing character. Jeff is still an adorable little vampire hunter coming into his own! They definitely are an sweet couple.
The romance is romancey but also of the steamy variety. I totes love that kind! You know, the kind where clothes are shredded and things get broken..THAT kind of steamy! This isn't the typical vampire novel and these are your typical characters. These guys belong to Rhiannon Frater, and she's treating them VERY well!
So many feels I have for this book y'all! I will just leave you with this:
THIS BOOK IS AWESOME BALLS! Read it! Read it! You know you want to!
