Infatuate by Aimee Agresti
Haven Terra is still recovering from an internship that brought her literally to the brink of hell when a trip to New Orleans leads to more trouble. There, while taking part in a student volunteer program, Haven and her friends Dante and Lance run across an enclave of devils known as the Krewe. These shape-shifting devils are more reckless and vicious than any Haven, Lance, and Dante have encountered. Yet the friends soon discover that their French Quarter housemates are also angels in training, and together they must face off with the Krewe in their quest for wings.
But Haven’s resolve is tested when Lucian, the repentant devil with whom she was infatuated, resurfaces and asks her for help escaping the underworld. Can he be trusted? Or will aiding him cost Haven her angel wings—and her life?
Haven, Lance, and Dante fully recovered from their last encounter with the dark devils that tried to steal their souls. And now they’re up against another group with even more powers. And even though they know what they’re facing, and suspect everyone, Haven and Lance are still taken and tempted with a new kind of trial – infatuation. But this time, they’re not alone. And even Lucian returns to help in exchange for freeing his soul. There are a couple love triangles that complicate Haven and Lance’s relationship. And, unfortunately, the spark that was there in the last installment fizzles out quite a bit with all the strain in this story.
Infatuate is a beautiful, fantasy tale of good versus evil. I enjoyed this sequel just as much as the first. There are complex characters, even more mystery, and plenty of surprises along the way. Dark, intense, and dramatic – the author steps up the suspense in this installment. Events build to an exciting climax, and leave off with a cliffhanger ending that will leave readers eager for the third and final novel in this fantastic trilogy.
