Drop Dead Demons (Divinicus Nex Chronicles #2)

Here's your double dose of Divinicus Nex for the week.  This is the second book in the series.

Drop Dead Demons (Divinicus Nex Chronicles #2) by A & E Kirk
Publication Date: May 27, 2014

Survival. It's an on-going battle.

Aurora Lahey finally knows why supernatural slayers salivate to slaughter her, but how to stop them? Not so much. Sure, she's discovered her own lethal powers, and has six sexy, super-charged, demon hunting Hex Boys watching her back--the hottest one watching every part of her. But when a seductive stranger delivers a deadly ultimatum, Aurora and the Hex Boys plunge into a do-or-die hunt for a legendary Mandatum treasure, which will finally shift power in their favor. Or unleash hell on earth.

Pursued by demons of mythical proportions, Aurora and the Hex Boys race deeper into the shadowy world of a centuries-old mystery and brutal conspiracy, where no one and nothing is what it seems. Where love and betrayal go hand-in-hand, and trusting the wrong person not only breaks your heart, but gets you killed.

Uncovering shocking secrets from the Hex Boys' past, hiding her Divinicus Nex identity, lying to her pretend-wish-he-were-real boyfriend, dodging demons, breaking into ancient tombs, taking the unexpected side trip to the dark depths of the Waiting World, tracking a traitor, and passing Physics...Aurora could do that in her sleep. Or more likely, die trying.


The Hex Boys are back and better than ever!!! Before reading, this was me:


After the long wait for this highly anticipated sequel, I basically devoured this book. Be warned, you will not want to stop reading this book because it's simply not possible to stop. I read this all day today, and couldn't get enough. You know those books that despite how long they are, you just don't want them to end? Well, this novel is the perfect example. While this book is almost 600 pages, you never want to see the end of the book. I would read this book if it was 1000 pages because it is that amazing. 

The writing is fantastic, and had me laughing hysterically all the way through. Aurora is awesome as ever. She is snarky, sarcastic, and never whines. She toughs through everything that is thrown at her, and let's face it...that's a lot. This girl seriously can't catch a break. It made for some very humorous situations though, so that's a plus (well, not for her, but at least for us readers haha). One of the things I love about her character though is how relatable she is. Everyone of us can find something about Aurora to relate to, and to me, that is the perfect heroine. She isn't perfect. She's clumsy, gets into all kinds of dangerous situations, and is balancing a love life that has been kinda lackluster as of late. What's not to love about her?! The sexy Hexy boys (little rhyme for ya!) are some of my all time favorite boys ever! I love every single one of them, and I don't know who I love more. Ayden obviously is the front-runner, but each of the Hex Boys have their own loveable personality that is so unique that regardless of whether or not it is mentioned who is talking, you can easily tell who it is. I feel like I know these characters all so well, yet I know there is still so much to learn about them. We also are treated to the introduction of all of their families, and they are seriously the best ever. A&E Kirk will make you feel so many things, this is basically you while reading:


There are some super steamy moments between Aurora and Ayden, and they will have you swooning. The balance of romance and action was done extremely well, and I loved every single second. There were times I was so frustrated with Aurora and Ayden that I wanted to reach into the book somehow and physically smush them together so they would kiss. Believe me, if I could of...I would have. Every single description is written so perfectly, I truly felt as if I was right there next to the characters fighting demons, and looking for treasure. The ending...the ending will make you want to throw your book, which means...DUH DUH DUHHHH...cliffhanger. And boy is it a doozy. Let's just say, I need the next book as soon as possible. 


You need to read this series now. It's as simple as that. This is a must read for any fan of the Divinicus Nex Chronicles, and is a surefire hit. You will not be disappointed, and will want to re-read it all over again as soon as your done. There are many questions still to be answered, and I can't wait to get back to Aurora and my Hex Boys. A&E Kirk, I love you guys so much for giving fans this book! Thank you for writing such a wonderful, amazing book that was well worth the wait!

And one last thing...
