Dark Goddess (Devil's Kiss Series #2) by Sarwat Chadda

Barnes and Noble Overview:
New enemies, new romance, and new horrors,
Billi's back, and it seems like the Unholy just can't take a hint.
Still reeling from the death of her best friend, Kay, Billi's thrust back into action when the Templars are called to investigate werewolf activity. And these werewolves are like nothing Bilil's seen before.
They call themselves the Polenitsy - Man Killers. The ancient warrior women of Eastern Europe, supposedly wiped out centuries ago. But now they're out of hiding and on the hunt for a Spring Child — an Oracle powerful enough to blow the volcano at Yellowstone — precipitating a Fimbulwinter that will wipe out humankind for good.
The Templars follow the stolen Spring Child to Russia, and the only people there who can help are the Bogatyrs, a group of knights who may have gone to the dark side. To reclaim the Spring Child and save the world, Billi needs to earn the trust of Ivan Romanov, an arrogant young Bogatyr whose suspicious of people in general, and of Billi in particular.
Dark Goddess is a page-turning, action-packed sequel that spans continents, from England to the Russian underworld and back. This is an adventure of folklore and myth become darkly real. Of the world running out of time. And of Billi SanGreal, the only one who can save it.
The screaming started immediately. The carriage was lit by small spots of pearly white as people used their mobiles to see, but all they revealed were the stark, rigid faces of fear. Billi tightened her hold on Vasilisa as the mass moved and buffeted against each other. The air thickened with terror.

“I can’t breathe!”
“Get out!”
“It’s a bomb!”
“It’s terrorists!”
“Open the doors!”
A scuffle broke out at as people tried to barge their way through the interconnecting doors while those in the next carriage tried to do the same. The screams multiplied and someone clawed at Billi’s leg as they were knocked down. Somewhere further in the compartment a baby started crying and in the eerie gloom Billi saw two men trying to wrestle the buggy away from the doors with the mother trying to fight them off.

The howl silenced the entire train. Everyone paused as some primeval dread crept through their skins and froze them. No one breathed.
My Review:
 Ok guys, I'm sorry for being so behind but I have a job now and I just don't have as much time for blogging, but I promise I will try harder.
 So here we go. This book is AWESOME!! It is so action packed, you will never be bored. And the best part about it is that there is fresh meat!!! Who doesn't love a young strapping tsar to be (he's Russian for goodness sake)?? I was drooling over him the whole time, just imagining what his accent is like turns me inside out (pssst... wipe the drool away ladies). If you haven't read the first book Devil's Kiss and are looking for a great new series while between books, this is one you need to read then. These books are amazing at keeping your attention and will not let you put them down until you are finished. It's a great book to read and I highly recommend it for all ages!
