Book Review: Dark Goddess (Alpha Goddess #2) by: Amalie Howard

Release Date: February 13, 2018
from Sky Pony Press
Goodreads| Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via edelweiss and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"After an epic struggle that unseated the Asura Lord of Death and placed Serjana Caelum’s best friend, Kyle, on his throne, the Mortal Realm is peaceful and the balance between good and evil—which Sera is sworn to protect—has been restored.

But signs of a new threat to the world of men quickly begin to appear: A scourge of demons descends on the Mortal Realm, and Sera is beside herself trying to locate their source. She sends word to the gods for help, and their answer comes in the form of Kira, the living incarnation of Kali, goddess of destruction.

Stunning and dangerous, Kira plans to protect the heavens at all cost, even if it means destroying the entire Mortal Realm. Soon Sera and Kyle find themselves fighting not just the demon plague, but Kira and her twin. But when an even more sinister threat arises—putting not just the human world but all planes of existence in jeopardy—they must all learn to work together or lose everything they sacrificed so much to save."

My Thoughts:

First things first… how pretty is that cover?!?! I’m ridiculously in love with it and I’m going to need a copy for my bookshelf. Dark Goddess was a really enjoyable read and I am really glad I got to visit this world once again.

In Alpha Goddess, Kyle was my favorite character. So I was really excited that he was such a huge part of Dark Goddess. In so many ways, Alpha Goddess was Sera’s story but Dark Goddess really belonged to Kyle. After everything he went through, he really had to come to terms with some truths about himself and who he wants to be. Kyle really finds himself in this one and I came to love him even more.

Of course I loved seeing Sera again, because she is a great heroine. She is so brave and selfless and never backs down from a challenge. But our newest character Kira kinda stole the show. She is just raw power and reckless and fearless and I loved her complexities. 

For me, this is such a different kind of read. I haven’t read much surrounding Hindu mythology and I just really enjoyed diving into this world. It’s always fun to find a book that is different from your normal reads, especially when that book delivers.

Dark Goddess was a really enjoyable read with great characters. This author never lets me down.
