Triple Six (The Lightkeepers #2) by Erica Spindler

Thoughts Prior to Posting:

I read this book before the first one, and have my review as it was originally written. 

Plot Synopsis:

Detectives Mikki Dare and Zach Harris are back in their second adventure to battle evil. Detective Dare has worked her way up the New Orleans Police Department ladder and had recently been paired with Detective Harris, to protect him as he utilizes his unique abilities. Detective Zach “Hollywood” Harris is not your average person. He is a Half Light, child of a lightkeeper and a human; this ancestry giving Harris the ability to read emotions and memories, pick up on how many people have been in the area, and track down the “Dark Bearers”, evil ones who are dedicated to destroying the world.

Harris hasn’t told Dare about what he really is, pretending to be a psychic, but unfortunately Dare had became involved in the middle of a fight between the Lightkeepers and Dark Bearers. She was shot, but healed by another Lightkeeper and while can only remember little of what occurred, she is insistent to search out what happened.

She also has become more ingrained in the Lightkeepers, when she unknowingly offered her home to one of the Lightkeepers, Angel.

In this book, New Orleans has been hit with home invasions, and Dare and Harris are put on the case. What they discover is strange: a band of young teens who are destroying homes and attacking adults, yet playing with the children and gaining their trust.

Meanwhile, Angel has been approached by a handsome, older, man.

They begin a relationship that moves incredibly fast and starts changing her personality worrying the Lightkeepers and Dare.

But the two instances become connected and reveal a much darker plot than any had thought of.

Oh no.

Thoughts After Reading:

I thought this book was amazingly well done. It constantly kept your interests from beginning to end making it near impossible to set down, as you had to know what was to happen next and whether or not the characters would survive.

I found myself glued to my kindle as I followed the novels twists and turns to its conclusion.

Besides being a captivating and thrilling story, the characters were interesting and relatable. Each one comes from a different walk of life and the obstacles, challenges, and history the author created in these characters really captured your attention and creating a desire in wanting to know more about them and who they are.

All of you

As this is the second installment in the series and I had not had the opportunity to read the previous piece, I was initially confused as to who the characters were and what creatures the Lightkeepers and Dark Bearers are. However, even though I did not have the opportunity to read the prior book in the series Spindler is able to craft a well-done story that quickly brings the reader up to speed with the world the characters live in.

This book was phenomenal and I’m looking forward to reading any to be published in the future.

I give it five out of five stars.

While they search for the truth, it turns out there is more to this FBI agent that found Zach and an explanation to his abilities, more sensational than Zach could have ever imagined.

Thoughts After Reading:

I thought this was good, but I read the second book, Triple Six, first and liked it better as the characters were more developed and settled in with each other.

But this still was a great book, and set up the introductions as to who the characters are and their mission.

The ending was fantastic. Spindler is a talented writer and has a skill for creating a powerful thriller and wonderful characters.
