Happy Wednesday all , hope you all are having a great day . Today we are going to review the sequel to Dance of the butterfly . SWORD OF THE BUTTERFLY BY Scott Carruba
The tale continues in Sword of the Butterfly, book two of the series, as Lilja and Skothiam continue to fight demons within and without. The infernal forces make a grand play, hoping to stab the world in its very heart. Casualties mount as further tensions rise in the City, threatening the vigilante with a loss of freedom and life. Children become victims of a madman’s design while the hunt is on for a powerful creature wreaking havoc across parts of the U.S. Lilja begins to question herself and her place in Skothiam’s life even as the very treasure they must protect comes under danger.
This is the sequel to Dance of the butterfly and the author takes it up a few notches . Lilja and Skothiam are back and are still fighting demons . The forces they are fighting against are ramping up the evil and want to take over the world . Will they survive and will they come out of it together .
The author takes his characters and puts them through the ringer . He writes complex characters that have you feeling their feeling right along with them . The characters are kick ass and they love hard . I kind of want to Lilja when I grow up . She is strong but yet vulnerable when it comes to Skothiam .
Mr Carruba writes with such a passion , and weaves such a rich story full of intrigue . mystery and some romance . You will be sucked in from the very first page and before you know it you are done .
I will say that you should read the first book before you hit this one . You will know more about the characters if you do . So if you want a sweeping saga and aren't afraid to sit down and read a big book that will make time stand still check out this series . I loved both books soo much .
