The Blessed Knights by Mary Ting

mary-ting-1b-the-blessed-knightsAbove a small hill lay a home.
And green men peer out under the dome.
Thirteen crisscrossing arches behold,
with angels singing must be told.
Cubes like teeth thus showed,
pierce one and the door shall glow.
Part the sea like Moses,
to see the bundle of red roses.
Only then you shall see,
what is destined to be free.
But beware, if you are not the heir,
for damnation you shall declare,
for the false burden you shall bare.

Eli, Lucia’s half-demon love interest, has been stabbed with a true-cross dagger and captured by Cyrus, master of the possessor demons. The Chosen Knights must work together once again not only to save Eli, but also to decipher a clue to find the second missing page of Jacques de Molay’s journal.

Meanwhile, Uncle Davin informs Crossroads’ Divine Elders of the danger ahead and learns there is much to fear. Countless children are being taken from all over the world to be turned into demons. Michel has no choice to intervene.

The Chosen Knights track down Mortem, the demon who is the key to finding Cyrus, and learn they must travel deep into the pit of a Hawaiian volcano. When they astral travel to the past in search of a clue and follow Jacques do Molay to Rosselyn Chapel in medieval Scotland, what they find will rewrite history.

Dear Reader,

 I really enjoyed the first book and the world I was introduced to, so you could imagine my excitement for this. First off, let’s just bask in the fact that it’s set in Hawaii, okay? I haven’t come across many books with the MCs hanging around in paradise, and could honestly count on one hand the number of series I’ve read that have. That’s sad, guys. That’s a sad, sad thing. But anyways.

This installment mainly deals with the loss of one of their own and their fight to get them back. While this is happening, said lost person is learning things that we weren’t privy to. Demon-related things that involve some pretty sad reveals. And some rather overdue ones.

It was pretty much filled with action and humor, but I think the dialogue was a little too young for me to really giggle over. Definitely a different feel from the first book, where there was a promise of forbidden romance and a larger world than everyone else truly knows about. To be honest, I wasn’t feeling it this time, but I’d totally read the next one, only because I need to know what happens to Can’t Say Who.

Happy Reading,

A Little Darling
