Title: Reignite (Extinguish #2)
Author: J.M. Darhower
Genres: Paranormal, Supernatural
Release Day: October 13th 2014
ARC was kindly provided from the author in exchange for an honest review.

The moment the short-lived apocalypse came to an end, life returned to normal. Mortals continued on with their oblivious existences while the earth healed and flowers again bloomed, the devastation instantly wiped away. It was as if it had never happened.

But it did.

Luce knows. He’s cursed to remember every moment, forced to live with everything he has done. Suddenly finding himself out of confinement, he’s faced with a decision: where to call “home”. Free will turns out not to be the freedom he expects when the only thing he wants doesn’t know he exists.

Serah woke up with no memory of where she came from or who she was before that moment. Struggling to adapt to the world as a mortal, she’s haunted by a set of bright blue eyes that always seem to be watching her. She can’t shake the feeling that he could be her salvation… if only she can remember him before it’s too late.

Lucifer didn’t fall from Grace alone. He’s not the only angel with a grudge, nor is he the only one fascinated by his beautiful mortal.

5 out-of-this-world stars!

Sinners run hot because they’re destined to burn.

Luce… oh how long I’ve waited for you and you didn’t disappoint! Over a year ago, I read Extinguish, I still remember reading it, it was night – like most of my reading when finally the house is quiet and I don’t have to leave the story in the middle every few minutes – I started reading it, thinking that I might not even like it because the whole evil versus good with a whole lotta love mixed in there is something that has been done before. But this is taking it to a whole other level. This is the Prince of Hell we’re talking about and Luce, from the first page till the last page of the sequel didn’t weaver from his dark ways. I didn’t even know there was a sequel in the works, I hoped for it but I didn’t know, till a few weeks ago when I saw the sign-up link for ARCs.

“Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things,” Michael said. “Love never ends”.

It’s a fact that I love everything J.M. Darhower writes, she’s on my list of people that I would even read their freaking shopping list in a heartbeat. She know how to deliver a good story, with deep characters and thick plot that hooks you in from the first page and then takes you for a wild ride. Every. Single. Book. Of. Hers. As much as I loved this one though, before I even read it, I loved it, I was kind of anxious because sequels have a way of being over the top and delivering more than they should and especially this one, I mean, how can Lucifer ever find redemption or a happy ending, it’s kind of impossible to do it but this one? ON THE FREAKING SPOT.

This one picks up where Extinguish left off so basically, even after a year, it felt like reading Extinguish but with a big break in between – yes, of course I have re-read Extinguish about a million times since then, I love it that much. Luce took Serah’s wings to save her from an eternity with him in Hell and in exchange for that kindness, her memories were stripped away and she was placed back to Earth. Let me say at this point that this is an example of Paranormal done right. I love anything Paranormal but I want it to be done just right, meaning, attention to details and making every action and reaction believable and backed-up by details. Which was never a problem with Darhower anyway, just pointing out a happy fact.

He once envied the humans because they were given the Earth, but looking at her, he wondered if maybe Paradise was to be found in a person and not a place.

Luce and Serah’s relationship is in a state of limbo at this point, she’s human and she doesn’t remember him and he’s the freaking Prince of Hell, the I-don’t-take-orders-from-anyone kind of guy and in this case, he really doesn’t! But even as it is, those two together…

“It’s the combination of them together, son. Lucifer is sulfuric acid, sometimes dangerous but still valuable. Serah, on the other hand, is water, peaceful and pure. Mixed together, those two are fine, as long as you introduce the acid slowly. The other way around, you’re headed for destruction. Dump water straight into the acid and something may very well explode.”

I mean… even God ships them, that’s… *mic drop*

Luce can’t stay away from her, even in her human form he is attracted to her and she to him. It’s inevitable and poetic at the same time. Beautiful to read and be a part of.

“You’re sleeping,” he whispered against her lips.
“You’re dreaming, angel. This didn’t happen.”

Did anyone else swoon? Cause I did! I swooned so much over Luce I know it’s illegal somewhere in the world to swoon that much over a fictional character! What I loved and deserves to be highlighted is Darhower’s version of how Lucifer and Micheal came to be, we’re even traveling back and read about the Creation process and the Fall of Man which was just beautiful to read and of course Adam and Eve and what really happened, the author’s imagination is really something to admire with this one and while I’m at it, I loved Lucifer’s interactions with Micheal, true brothers right there! Simply epic all the way.

Extinguish (Extinguish #1) by J.M. Darhower

One… Two… Three… Four…

I Declare War

Serah always believed the world around her was perfect. As a Power, one of the warrior angels, she has spent her existence defending the innocent from evil. After tragedy strikes, tearing Serah’s brother from her life, she’s given the task of stopping the approaching apocalypse before it’s too late.

Only one thing, though: she has to venture to Hell to do it.

Lucifer—or Luce, as he prefers to be called—has been biding his time in Hell, longing for revenge against those who oh-so-easily cast him into the pit. When the heavenly beauty shows up at his gate, he’s just as captivated by her presence as she becomes of him. The attraction between them is palpable, and Serah’s willpower slowly slips. How can this charming creature, this scarred Archangel, be the one annihilating the world she so loves?

As the war wages on, the world entwined in chaos, Serah starts questioning everything she ever knew. When the light and dark, hot and cold, finally collide, she has to make a choice—a choice that sets her world on fire, black and white exploding into colorful flames.

Serah has questions. She wants answers.

Luce just wants to play a game.
