Destroyer of Worlds (Spectr #5)
After becoming possessed by the vampire spirit Gray, telekinetic Caleb Jansen thought his situation couldn’t get any worse. But that was before Graham Forsyth, head of SPECTR’s sinister Research Division, took him into custody.
Forsyth claims he can exorcise Gray before the forty-day time limit runs out. But once at RD, Caleb and Gray find themselves ensnared in a web of lies. What is the truth behind the tests Forsyth is performing on them? What does the agency really plan to do with Gray? And most worrisome of all, why does Gray sense demons within the walls of RD’s compound?
Caleb’s boyfriend, SPECTR agent John Starkweather, has suspicions of his own. With the help of his friend Sean and a shadowy organization known only by their symbol of a moth, John intends to save Caleb and Gray at any cost.
But when divided loyalties threaten his last chance at exorcism, Caleb discovers love may come at a price higher than he’d ever imagined.
Wow! I devoured this book in one sitting, i couldn't put it down, and at times it was so dramatic i forgot to breathe!
Yeah, really. I'd get to the end of the sentence and take a big gasp.
Ok, so the series is really reaching a head now. There is i believe one more book after this one, then it's the end (for now?!) of Spectr! Zomg.
It left on a pretty dire cliff hanger last time, with Caleb bring escorted off by another division of Spectr, and this time things really heat up and the movers come out of the peripheral and into main play. Lots of things started to make sense, and it was action packed from the word GO.
And i must admit, 'escape' themed stories will always make me short of breath and have me at the edge of my seat. How will Caleb escape Spectr? Should he trust them or trust his instincts to run? And what about this secret Moth organisation offering to help him exorcise his demon, and should he even take it?
And what about poor John! What is he going to do after watching his boyfriend being carted off by the very company he works for?
Aiyeeee! So many questions! Thankfully it all unfolds before your eyes in this book, to the point where i was clutching my shirt/throat while reading.
Fans of Gray (me included!!) will be happy that he gets much more of a spotlight in this story, and i can't even say how much i'm looking forward to the next installment. *flails*
One final point: what i love about this series is the demon-power/ ooh i'm attracted to that, kink. As this story was so full of action i wasnt even sure if the author would have *room* to bring the sexy, but it was there, and it was wonderful! I'm going to have to read it again now :3
