Pulse: City of Angels (Pulse, 2)

Rating: 3 out of 5

Eve is your average 25 year old living in LA. If average means being an angel-demon hybrid who is wanted by her father, Lucifer. As it turns out, her dormant powers can do some serious damage to humanity. Lucifer wants nothing more than to force her to do just that. To make matters worse, he has stuck his own private and utterly annoying babysitter on her. All she wanted was to kick ass at her new job, party with her friends, and bang her hot vampire boyfriend. But her blood is the key to a nasty apocalypse which is putting a giant wrench in all her plans. So what do you do when your father, who happens to be the devil, wants to use you to unleash chaos on earth? You run. Right?

So I really enjoyed the first book in this series and thought it had an awesome reveal at the end that made me want to keep reading the series. I have to admit I was a little disappointed in this one. It picked up exactly where the last book ended which was nice, but I don't know this one was a huge disconnect for me. All of the characters seemed like the worst most needy and childish versions of themselves. We are given more factions of supernatural beings, without much explaining of them or their purpose. I have never disliked a character as much as I did Will in this book; he was overly possessive and it wasn't an attractive look on him.

Eve was very needy and ignoring all the red flags in her relationship in this book, which I have to admit made me lose some respect for her as a character. Also this is labeled as a reverse harem, but it is in fact most assuredly not that. All this aside, I think that Eve's story is interesting and I am curious to see where exactly the author takes this. I will be reading the next book in the series because I think the series has some serious potential.
