Book Review: Breed of Envy (Book #2) by Lanie Jordan

breedofenvy4 Stars 

Six months ago, Director Greene recruited me to the CGE to train to hunt demons.
Four months ago, I agreed to finish my first Phase in less than half the time.
Two months ago, I got bit by a vampire, almost died, and found out I have demon DNA.
Now… Demons aren’t the only thing I have to fight.

Because I’m changing, and that changes everything.

This book is the sequel of Breed of Innocence and it is as good as the first one or maybe even better! Breed of Envy picks up from where Breed of Innocence leaves off allowing Jade and Linc to face new challenges. From budding love to demon hunts to demon empathy — their lives are definitely not boring. The two embark upon demon hunts which results in some interesting experiences an revelations. There’s a lot of drama going on – much like high school, that is very relatable. The pressure on Jade is so oppressive that she considers leaving the Center.

I loved how the author let us have insight into the personal aspects of the characters and experience their lives more in-depth. The main character/ heroine Jade keeps her guard up and doesn’t get all weak and dependable on Linc with whom she shares a confusing romantic relationship. Jade is a heroine that anyone can relate to and in this sequel she discovers her true identity and heritage. Without the benefit of a parental structure, Jade struggles with the basic teenage issues such as identity, relationships, and trust. And yet, she is strong, both physically and emotionally and is not afraid to speak and stand up for herself.

We also get to know Linc better in this novel and really get to see the characters being to support each other, yet are vulnerable and with some insecurity, yet mature enough to recognize their weaknesses. This book is consistent with the basic high school sarcasm and drama that is really believable and made this series very easy to read.

All in all a very thrilling and captivating read, the suspense of which will make you chomp on your lower lip in anticipation and fear and you’ll keep on turning the pages till you finish it. I furthermore enjoyed how author Lanie Jordan really expressed the ups and downs of relationships, dealing with issues and drama that most teenagers can relate to.

This is definitely a book i would recommend to my teenage nieces. I received a free ARC through LoP via Goodreads in exchange for an honest review.
