So first I want to say that I'm huge fan of Mrs. Forgy's. I love the original Devil's Dust series. It's one of my go to re-read series. So I was super excited when I heard the next generation of Devil's Dust was getting their own series. I will admit that I'm usually weary when author's give kids of other series their own series. But I was still excited about this series and this book. But that's about where my excitement ends and I'll explain why in a bit.
Let's start with Zane. He's is Shadow and Dani's son and of course Bull's grandson. I want to start by saying I liked Zane. He's a young man who has his own demons, his maybe a bit darker than his father's. You could tell how much his family and club meant to him. Even with all his demons, he had a sweet, kind, tender side. But I will say this, he is NO Shadow. No one will ever compare to Shadow.
Oh Addie.... What can I say about Addie?..... Well if your not sure who Addie is or can't remember who she is. Well she's Jessica's, aka Doc's daughter and Bobby's step-daughter..... And I'm not trying to be rude or anything, but Addie was just a Big Dissappointment to me in this book. Look don't get me wrong I loved Addie in Bobby and Doc's book. But in this book she is supposedly supposed to be an almost 30 year old woman. But I found her to be a bit childish in the way she acted and the way people treated her. People almost treated her like she was a teenager instead of an adult. So I felt like that made me forget she was actually an adult instead of a teenager.
As mentioned above I had been really excited about this series. But I felt like that the storyline was choppy and at times I felt like I was reading two different stories. I really wanted to enjoy the characters, but I felt like Zane was the more mature character and that Addie felt like a teenager. I also kind of felt like everyone expected the club kids to get together. I'm not always not for that. I never really felt a connection between Zane and Addie, at times it felt forced to me.
I will say I did enjoy the appearences from the original devils. I also really enjoyed Saint, Rad, Piper, and Deliaha.
I'm giving this book 3.5 Stars out of 5!!!!
