Kaylee has one addiction: her very hot, very popular boyfriend, Nash. A banshee like Kaylee, Nash understands her like no one else. Nothing can come between them.Until something does.Demon breath. No, not the toothpaste-challenged kind. The Netherworld kind. The kind that reallycan kill you. Somehow the super-addictive substance has made its way to the human world. But how? Kaylee and Nash have to cut off the source and protect their friends—one of whom is already hooked.And so is someone else…For some reason every time I pick up a book from this series and start it, it takes me a while to get into it! Not sure why that is, but once I finally do get into it I can't stop! I get dragged in and all I want to do is sit there and read and figure out what kind of mess Kaylee, Nash, and Tod are going to get themselves into next.
And 99% of the time it's because Kaylee can't stand by and not HELP whoever is in trouble. She HAS to help them. She feels it's her duty, and I love that about her. Sometimes I really do want to smack Kaylee, but most of the time she's a great character to be reading about. She's smart and very loyal to her friends and family.
I also really like Nash and Tod. I remember in the beginning of the first book I didn't like Tod much, but with each book I love him just that much more. He's hilarious. And Nash, I've loved him since the start, if I remember correctly. Though in this book he disappointed me a bit. He always seems to perfect, but he definitely proves you wrong in this book. I'm not going to go into details, but he gets himself into a bit of trouble. He completely broke my heart in this book. =( Though I do still feel bad for him.
My other favorite characters are Harmony, Kaylee's dad and her Uncle Brendon. They are great to have around and they seem the type of people I'd love to have in my own family. Especially Harmony, as she's always nice and ALWAYS baking something nice. =) I do love me some food, and looove me some sweet stuff.
If you've read book two (You better have if you're reading this review!) you've learned about Demon's Breath. In the third installment you get to learn more about it and get a little more deep into it. It makes a great plot and very interesting, but also very scary! I was sighing so much in this book because I was worried about Kaylee, Nash and Tod.
Overall, as always Rachel Vincent has done it again. I'm DYING to pick up book four from the library, but I've made a new rule to finish the ones I have before picking up new ones...Boo! I definitely liked this one a lot better than the second book, they are just going to keep getting better and better I can just feel it. And this third installment had the most twists out of the series so far, at least in my opinion.
If you haven't started this series yet, you should definitely check it out. It's definitely unique and Rachel is an amazing writer. This is her second series that I've fallen in love with. She's definitely one of my top favorite authors. So watch out for her!
The fourth book in this series is called My Soul to Steal. It was released on January 4th, 2011.Read my other reviews for this series:
