Blue Star Priestess

I don't usually review sequels but I thought I'd do a short post on one of my favourite Urban Fantasy series - Blue Star Priestess (Demon Lord Book 3) by Morgan Blayde.





Blurb



BECAUSE SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO FIGHT FIRE WITH HELLFIRE, THERE’S CAINE DEATHWALKER: RAISED AS A DEMON, ARMED LIKE A GUN MERCHANT, AND FUELED BY BOOZE. NICE IS A DIRTY WORD AND KILLING IS WHAT HE DOES BEST. MAKE A CONTRACT WITH HELL AND HE COULD BE ON YOUR SIDE, GOD HELP YOU. 

BLUE STAR PRIESTESS 

THE MILF FROM HELL: SHE’S HOT, LETHAL, AND NOT SUPPOSED TO BE ALIVE. CAINE’S FATHER KILLED OFF ALL THE ATLANTEAN DEMONS AGES AGO, LEAVING ONLY HIMSELF. BUT REAL OR NOT, THE BLUE STAR PRIESTESS AND HER DEMON SON ARE ON A MISSION OF VENGEANCE, ORCHESTRATING AN INVASION FROM THE SHADOWS. ALL OF L.A. IS THEIR TARGET. CAINE IS HIT FROM EVERY SIDE, ALL BUT JUMPING FLAMING HOOPS LIKE A CIRCUS POODLE. 

BETRAYAL OF HIS CITY MAY BE THE ONLY WAY TO SAVE IT, AS LONG AS NOBODY FINDS OUT. 
FOR MATURE AUDIENCES.

My Review


Picked up in the same action-packed form as the previous two. Not a page goes by when Caine isn't either killing someone, about to kill someone, or fornicating. Real roller-coaster of a story. 

I enjoyed this book more than the 2nd, mainly because of the development of Caine. You discover more about him and his mysterious ancestry. Also there's more depth to him than the psychotic killer he's portrayed to be.

However, the reason I didn't give this book higher stars was because of the amount of typos contained within. It felt like the author suddenly abandoned his editing half-way through as the first half of the book was perfectly fine, but the second half held basic mistakes like 'she' instead of 'he'. A simple re-editing would pick up most, if not all the errors. I still enjoyed the book and it didn't detract from the overall quality of the storyline. 

I will definitely be buying the 4th instalment.
