She's new and young. She has strong beliefs that things are white and black. Ryann has spunk too. She talked back to the Father about her test, though kindly, and stands up to a bully. But he has her strong opinions of Demons and anything of "powers" lets mention psychic as an example as it comes from evil. I have to admit Ryann struck me as a perfect christian girl and I didn't know why, but I didn't much care for her in the beginning. She was perfect, written as she should be to make me feel the way I did just so she could grow and come to be a character I really enjoy. Ryann learns first hand there are many things NOT taught in school, and she adjusts easily.
She just keeps getting up every day going on doing whats right, even if she has to accommodate and change to get there. And change is just what she does. Ryann grows by leaps and bounds in this book, and starts to see there is gray in the world. And somewhere in here I started liking her, and even by the end worrying for her. Skyla also has an amazing talent for story lines. The book starts off seeming so easy, but by the end there is so much there you just didn't see it all until you where done.
And Malice, the short story at the end, multiplies the feeling 10 times.
The story seems to start off slower as we build on the new characters and how they come to their beliefs or changes in the end. But this book comes full circle and this information is needed to see the big picture. This beginning is needed to instill some gray thoughts to Ryann and drop hints for later in the book. This is what I enjoy in books! To get you thinking about all that you read, even back from the beginning to piece it all together for so much more meaning.
Okay so to some of the characters. We get a whole new cast here. The Hunters Ryann knows in school and on her mission. Christian sounds like a nice character, and would like to see more of in the future. Even Abigail who only appears briefly. I loved meeting him too.
When we first met Ellie he and Ryann started on the wrong foot and he was a little annoying, but I loved his comments and jokes. He just ended up stealing my heart in this book. But boy he can really get under Ryann's skin but they make a great team, they just don't know that yet. She does make an appearance in this book.
But we see her from Ryann's view point of the church and Demon Hunter. Which I think is a great way to show the opposite side regarding Zara, what others think of her from the view they see. This book has a different feel than Bloodlines. One I think the readers should follow through with. You will learn so much more about where the series is going. So much more added to the pot here! Malice is the short story in which Skyla gets the brain turning.
This is what I love about her stories. This is what I look for.
More titles to consider
Malice helps tie in a few pieces from Bloodlines and Hunter to give a growing thread of connection and future threat. This short story is after Hunter and in Zara's view. Which I might add sheds a whole new light on a few things.
Yeah, you have to read this one if you are enjoying the series. Zara has a quick fight scene with a half-demon, reason becomes clear here. Zara is keeping a close eye, er ear, on Father Matthew and a Hunter spy on her side. What till you see who. We also learn of the importance of Nicolette to Zara. Oct 12, Melliane rated it really liked it. But just as I had loved her, I was a little afraid of not hanging much with Ryann, this new main character.
But what a mistake! Ryann is a girl born to become a hunter in the church where she was raised.

As she is an old and powerful vampire, they will form a team to track the woman down who seems to go unnoticed wherever she goes.

But this is not an easy task for this psychic and he must pass through moments of great pain when he puts his talents in contribution.
Skyla Dawn Cameron
This time these two persons will have to team up despite their differences, one as a hunter and the other as an aid to find the vampire in the city. I loved this novel and I was pleasantly surprised to see Zara once more here. She is not staged here and I really really enjoyed discovering Ryann.
This is a young woman who has suffered many hardships in her life and yet she remains courageous in all circumstances. I must say that she is everything: When all the others follow without asking questions, she dares go against rule if it is not normal for her. She and Ellie are a beautiful duo. He is very different from her, far from any preconceived notions of the church, he upsets and tickles everyone and especially Ryann.
A bond will also gradually appear between them and I was eager to see what it would give at the final. But it is true that the hardest part is for Ryann who will have put everything into doubt, her friends, her ideas, and her entire life. To conclude, it was a very good second novel and I admit that I can not wait to see her again. Of course there will be a new character in the next novel too. Will I wait to start reading it? That is the big question. But in any case I recommend the first two novels as they are great to discover. Not me, that's for sure but somehow Skyla Dawn Cameron manages to pull it off very well.
