Supernatural Slayer Squad (Darkblood Academy, #2)
Welcome to the Supernatural Slayer Squad!  Our task is simple. Kill all the demon baddies before they wreak havoc on the human realm and destroy the fragile peace between our two worlds. Easy peasy, right? Well, if I can’t figure out how to get this devil’s mark off my chest, the demons won’t stop coming for me. Luckily, my long lost father has shown up promising to help me get rid of it. But do I really want a dark warlock’s help? Then there’s my love life—or serious lack there of. I broke all the rules my first semester, and the worst was falling for my demon bad boy instructor. Our so-called relationship is strictly forbidden and if he can’t get his inner demon under control, we’re totally screwed. To make matters worse, the dark lord of the Underworld has set her sights on me and my unique powers. She’s dead set on making the human world her evil minions’ playground and thinks I’m the key to stopping her. So I guess I have to be…  ***This is an upper YA/NA crossover with schmexy supernatural guys and is best suited for age 16 and over. Be warned, the steaminess factor does increase through the course of the series!

I loved the first book and I was afraid that I would like the second one as much, but the opposite happened and omg 😭😍❤️Luna = I loved her in the first book, mostly because of who she is and how she’s dealing with her things. I loved how her character developed since the first book and I also love the new enhancements, let’s say.Ryder = I looove Ryder a lot! He is in my TOP 3 book bad boys/lovers and I just don’t think the book would be the same without him!Anyone else? Well, there are parts where my heart sunk so deep I thought I would die..then at some parts I was extremely happy for some characters. For me it depends on who I like and who I don’t. I like Cinder a lot! The way she’s been supporting Luna from the start and how they became BFF, keep secrets and more.I’m afraid I won’t say much about this book, because you either HAVE TO READ it and join us all, or you can just be blind and not enjoy your life at all!

    I love this Authors fantasy books and was looking forward to the release of book.2. In this Darkblood Academy Series. One of the things I love most about G.K.Derosa is her ability to construct a world that you never question the logic, status or it’s place in the world, it’s descriptive enough to feel, yet doesn’t distract from the storyline, it only enhances the atmosphere. The storyline continues as Luna becomes more a part of the Supernatural Slayer Team, her powers start to develop, but she I love this Authors fantasy books and was looking forward to the release of book.2.

One of the things I love most about G.K.Derosa is her ability to construct a world that you never question the logic, status or it’s place in the world, it’s descriptive enough to feel, yet doesn’t distract from the storyline, it only enhances the atmosphere. The storyline continues as Luna becomes more a part of the Supernatural Slayer Team, her powers start to develop, but she starts to realise that not all of them are always on the light side of magic, meaning more secrets and lies. Her friendships with the team grows, especially as a certain Ice Prince shows his more human side, both good and bad. As the demon attacks are driven out of Darkblood Academy, new threats arise with devastating consequences. Changes in her family ties boost her confidence, putting a bigger target on her back. A certain hot demon instructor becomes more protective, making the heat between them reach near boiling point. I love this love interest, it’s intensity makes for some toe curling reading. A look but don’t touch rule drives Luna to branch out to others, as she try’s to ignore the man she really wants. This action packed series continues to ramp up both physically and emotionally, as we get to learn more about the characters personalities, which I personally liked, as Finding out what makes people tick adds more depth and reason for some of their actions. Once again, G.K.Derosa has hit the nail on the head, constructing a strong consistent world with fascinating characters. The ending absolutely floored & shocked me, it was lovely one minute then devastating the next, my jaw was left hanging open, with utter disbelief at this turn of events, this has left me half desperate for book.3. and half with dread. Ok 💯 % desperate for the book, but I really, really hope it’s not true.

    It's constant action going on here, I hardly have time to catch my breath before something new is happening! Some things I see coming, others I don't. I usually like to be surprised, but especially one incident I didn't see the point of. Without giving any spoilers, all I can say is that this event didn't effect the story in any way, as I see it.

I like the other characters too, especially Drake has gotten my attention. The heat between Luna and Ryder only increases, but since any relationship between teacher and student is strictly forbidden they can't act on it. Or can they...?I'm not sure what to think about the ending. I guess it depends on what the author is planning next... I'm definitely looking forward to spend more time with Luna and the others on the Supernatural Slayer Squad!I received an ARC from the author.

    I can't express how good this series is. This book is even better than the first (and that one is fantastic!). Luna really belongs and her team members are proving it. She is beginning a relationship with her dad, Ryder is finding it harder and harder to keep his distance, and her powers are getting stronger. She has a new power that kinda scares her and the demon that marked her is not giving up. Don't cheat yourself out of an enthralling adventure.

    Darkblood Academy is a spin-off series and very different to the Hitched series, but possibly even better. Some of the hot guys that we fell in love with in Hitched reappear in Darkblood.

A few times she endures an excruciatingly painful experience, but bounces right back like nothing happened. I think we need to see her dealing with the anxiety of knowing that she's about to go through it again rather than the bring-it-on attitude. The chemistry between her and Ryder heats up, but I felt things were slapdash with them at the very end, which was kind of disappointing. Drake, known as the Ice Prince, is also in the picture, but he doesn't let us know his true feelings for Luna, so we're left to wonder. There's a crazy twist at the end, which will leave you thinking your own conclusions while you wait for the next book.I received an ARC. This is my honest and voluntary review.

    So I thought book one was fantastic and really looked forward to this second book and it did not let me down! Every bit as good as the first we continue with Luna’s journey in the supernatural slayer squad! The world Building is excellent and I love the characters growth and I have to say the continuing storyline just sucks you in from the first page. Tons of action, drama, romance and twists and turns, this is one academy series you do not want to miss!

    Mixed feelings...some spoilersI was excited to start reading more about characters I grew to love in the first book.. but the author decided to do a more sad theme in this book. Normally, I would say that made the book more memorable and that the sad parts made the book even greater because it was so heartfelt. And I love being moved by a book. But that is not the case with this book. The devastating part written in the middle of this book to cause angst really did not add to the story.

No necessary sacrifice...Nada... in fact I think the book would have been so much better without it. And now...the ending went totally left field... probably to open the door to another love interest at the expense of another. So I’m having mixed feelings if I want to even continue with this series or not. Jury is out for now..

Oh, and she's also fallen for her instructor who happens to be a demon with a bad habit of not keeping good control over his inner bad boy. The story picks up where the first installment left off. Luna's spending her days training and unlocking her powers. That pesky devil's mark is still present and no one can seem to do anything about it. Considering this mark is what is drawing the very bad things to the academy, it's vital that it disappear. Enter her long lost father who happens to be a very powerful warlock to see about taking care of this little problem. In the meantime, the lord of the underworld makes it known that she (yes, she) has diabolical plans to take over the human world with her army. Have the supernatural slayer squad trained enough and have a cohesive enough bond as a team to defeat the bad guys? Can Luna keep it together while uncovering her powers and dealing with her massive crush on the untouchable demon? This was a good follow-up to the first and the author presented an enjoyable pace with memorable characters. I recommend for fans of paranormal academy books.I received a copy of this book from the author.

I can appreciate that but I came her for some romance and I felt more than a little disappointed. Even though there are multiple swoon worthy men I do not consider this a RH novel. - I have been reading so much RH (reverse harem) lately it is slightly refreshing to read a normal paranormal romance with just a sprinkle of dating. Like my review of Book #1 - if you have not read the Hitched Series by DeRosa be prepared to be annoyed by the mention of that series over and over and over again and have that series spoiled soooo I would recommend reading Hitched first. I doubt it would annoy you if you knew WTH they were talking about. I will 100% continue with this series!#TeamRyder as always I go with my Dark Handsome Sexy Tattoo Muscular Bad Boys!

The dynamic with Drake is fantastic and I’d love more of his backstory and motives. Secretly hoping her next semester has more of a chance to make genuine connections instead of getting stuck in the physical like she was with R and Des (shallow). I also hope her friendship with Scarlett grows and isn’t glossed over as much as it was in this book. The next book will be make or break in the series for me... I really hope R gets cutoff and we aren’t stuck with a swooning heroine. As of now the series gives me ACOTR vibes and I’m loving the personal development (fingers crossed this continues)!!!!

    Fantastic sequel. It doesn't pick up immediately following the first book but not very much time has elapsed. You get to see Luna come into her powers in this book and of course there are kinks and issues. Garrix plays a more important role than he has previously. As the title denotes, the Slayer Squad is utilized and gets more page time. Luna has all sorts of relationship crazy going on in this book. Juggling three guys, sort of.
