Wow…what did I just read? First, to really even get close to understanding Sancte Diaboli by Amo Jones, you need to read the other books in the series. Here’s my review.
This one picks up right where part one ends. Spoiler… get ready.
Our, h, Saint has been shuttled away to safety from a dangerous situation. But, it feels a lot like an abduction to her. Which, it kind of is, to be fair. I was on the edge of my seat waiting for the finale of this series. Who has Saint? Why do they have her? Was Brantley part of it? So many questions. Every book in this series has crazy plot twists, couples with insane chemistry, layer after layer of action and now we’re throwing in a coven, someone stalking Saint IN HER MIND WHILE SHE SLEEPS, and everyone is having babies.
Saint is delivered to a woman named Veronica. Veronica is a witch, and other young witches live in her house, too. They aren’t your typical Vampire Diaries witches, not truly paranormal. Veronica believes Saint has the ability to break a curse that’s been on the coven for years. In true Amo Jones form, there’s a shocking secret about Veronica. Didn’t see it coming! Veronica has a lot going on.
I’m STILL a bit confused on the plot, but LOVED the book. It was an awesome ride! People close to the Elite Kings die. People get married. Some couples are close, some are still arguing. There are warlocks and explosions. The best thing to do is focus on the main couple as the plot is challenging to explain.
Onto the couple.
Brantley and Saint are dark and light, evil and good. They complement each other. He’s broody, violently protective, detached, hard, not one soft thoughtful bone in his body. Except when it comes to Saint. He’d do anything for her. Saint is mature beyond her years. She’s been sheltered by Brantley; he gave her everything, but kept her away from the world to protect her. She used that time to read, learn, shop and watch TV. She’s beautiful, innocent not naive, caring, smart, curious and strong. They’re a fun couple, maybe my favorite in the series. Each H has that I’m a son of a bitch, except for this one particular woman, vibe. But, Brantley takes that up several notches and I love it.
The book had a real ending. No cliffy. The epilogue was very sweet, the perfect finish to a delicious series. Jones has said she’ll continue with the next generation of Kings. This makes me happy. :)
