Invidious: A Dark Paranormal Romance (The Marked Book 2) by Bianca Scardoni

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The steep descent into Hell is always paved with good intentions.

My name is Jemma Blackburn and I’m a Slayer. Finding out I wasn’t human was only the beginning of my problems. My best-friend, Taylor, is still missing, and so is the Immortal Amulet, and it’s my job alone to get them both back. I don’t know who I can trust, and I’m still not sure I’m cut out for any of this, but I’m determined to figure it all out, or die trying.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, there’s a new enemy in town and they’ve come bearing gifts—an ancient prophesy that is going to blur the very lines between good and evil. And, apparently, my blood is tied to the center of it. I don’t have all the answers yet, but I’m getting closer and closer to discovering the truth. The truth about my bloodlines, and about who I really am.

And, believe me when I say, it’s going to change everything.

My Review

This book starts off with memories of the last chapter in the first book. That changed everything. Jemma is heartbroken and acts out like it a teenager. Then the next day, this story gets even more twisted. How do you know which truth to believe? 

Trace is confusing; one minute, he is hot, the next cold, and then hot again. His back and forth and the love triangle with Nikki and Jemma honestly are annoying. I don’t think my emotions can keep up with it all. But it seems to get all explained; however, the pain from the last book and the predicament are still issues. 

But of course, something happens as soon as they reconcile, and we’re back to cold and aloof. She is struggling with a lot of different problems at the same time. 

Jemma embraces her slayer side as she is intrigued with why she is so special. She rescues her friend solving at least one of the issues in this story and the last story. Trace seems to have warmed up again, and he and Jenna have a very sweet romance going on even with all the trouble around. Jemma is still on the hunt for a remnant, all while trying to learn herself and keep the visions from being a reality. 

This book gets a lot more doom and gloom as they discover her blood is the key. A prophecy long ago talked about it, and no, she has a genuine terrifying reality to face. Trace is trying to re-join the order, and Dominic is going to infiltrate with the bad guys. Something terrible happens, and Jemma makes an educated decision. Jemma is now facing an unknown enemy while also being taken from those she loves. The story continues in Iniquitous
