This is the continuation of Who Knows the Storm which is a fabulous read about storms that devastate the coast. A man survives under extreme circumstances and becomes a vigilante.
I am so excited to read this book since I loved the first one so much. However, this is not what I expected. Apparently, the ‘interlude’ is supposed to be a flashback. I don’t know why the author didn’t just italicize it like every other book I’ve read. Also, the flashbacks are very telling versus showing. I feel like someone is reading them rather than in that characters point of view. This book has the same characters from the previous book but certainly not the same action. It isn’t until about fifty pages in before something that isn’t thinking or talking happens. This book is very slow moving. There are some classic Cade moments that are always entertaining and the sexy, growling, alpha Nox. The Sam and Mason romance is sweet. Even Rachel, former assassin, really grows in this book. The twist isn’t really a twist. Based on the information given it is pretty obvious about the ‘big’ reveal. And the ending is not really an ending. The book stops before the ending so it’s kind of like the ending is almost cut off.
Overall, Who Knows The Dark is an okay read. The first book in this series is amazing. I may read the third if the author writes one.
A storm hits New York that lasts for weeks. Streets flood. Houses collapse. Citizens are evacuated. The city is in ruins. Nox has had a rough road to survive. His father killed. His mother in a retreat and ignoring his pleas for help. After a wild night that ends up with him carry a baby home to protect it, Nox hides. The city is slowly rebuilt but not by those who wish to reclaim its former glory. It’s built up with casino’s and drug dealers. By day Nox works in construction, by night he roams the street trying to keep the drug dealers away from his blocks. All he ever wants it to keep his son Sam safe. But Sam is not his biological son and the past that gives him nightmares will soon catch up to them. And it all revolves around an extremely sexy prostitute named Cade...
Sounds good, doesn’t it? It’s not. It’s freaking amazing! The characters are fleshed out and engaging. Nox is a badass who is only trying to protect Sam but he has a hard time fighting his growing feelings for Cade. Meanwhile, Cade the prostitute has a lot more depth than anyone gives him credit for. The world building in Who Knows The Storm is stunningly brilliant! A post apocalyptic city, gangs, addicts to a drug called Dead Bolt, money-grubbing casino’s, legal prostitution. It is all wonderfully rich with description. The sex is so freaking hot. This book is 5 stars all the way. That ending was seriously nail biting! It was a bit of a cliffhanger and I cannot wait to read the next book in the Vigilante series.
From the sensual romance to the intense twists, Who Knows The Storm by Tere Michaels is a MUST READ!
