TBT #43 - Review: Reignite (Extinguish #2) by J.M. Darhower

★TBT #43★

This week on #ThrowbackThrusday we bring to you a paranormal romance, Extinguish series by J.M. Darhower. Prior to this series, I’ve read only two books from this author but it took one hell of a bad boy to click with her writing, not just any bad boy, the mother-effing king of hell “Lucifer”. Writing again was remarkable; dialogues were great and loved the touch of dark humour.

Title: Reignite
Author: J.M. Darhower
Series: Extinguish #2
Genre: paranormal, romance

The moment the short-lived apocalypse came to an end, life returned to normal. Mortals continued on with their oblivious existences while the earth healed and flowers again bloomed, the devastation instantly wiped away. It was as if it had never happened.

But it did.

Luce knows. He’s cursed to remember every moment, forced to live with everything he has done. Suddenly finding himself out of confinement, he’s faced with a decision: where to call “home”. Free will turns out not to be the freedom he expects when the only thing he wants doesn’t know he exists.

Serah woke up with no memory of where she came from or who she was before that moment. Struggling to adapt to the world as a mortal, she’s haunted by a set of bright blue eyes that always seem to be watching her. She can’t shake the feeling that he could be her salvation… if only she can remember him before it’s too late.

Lucifer didn’t fall from Grace alone. He’s not the only angel with a grudge, nor is he the only one fascinated by his beautiful mortal.
The road to Hell is paved with good intentions...

Reignite by J.M. Darhower
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


***contain spoilers if you haven’t read book #1***

Not the sequel I expected for the Magical love story from previous book nevertheless, the ending was still epic! This story focused primarily on Lucifer and his struggle rather than the romance itself.

All the while he was in the pit, he held a grudge against the angels and wanted to destroy them and rule heaven. Now when he escaped hell and created a chaos, he neither feels the burning desire to destroy heaven and earth nor does he wants to kill his brother for casting him to hell. All that he feels now is loneliness, there is nowhere for him to go or has anyone to call as a friend but one thing is constant in his misery-his fluttering heart which beats for someone else, someone who doesn’t remember him, someone who was a collateral damage of his selfish deeds, a beautiful angel once who saw goodness in him is now fallen.
“How is it fair that she lost her Grace for loving someone incapable of Love?” 
I cherished all the bits and pieces of Luce and Serah’s time together, it was still palpable. Loved the way author brought the dept to Lucifer’s character, not just she barred his emotions but we get to see his past his time before in hell. Writing again was remarkable; dialogues were great and loved the touch of dark humour.

Though I didn’t love it as much as first book this still was a great read because of Lucifer’s POV. There’s something about the male POV which grabs my attention and bring out so many witty snide remarks and this one had lots of them.
