House of Imperial (Secret Keepers #2) Reviews
Not as good as the first
This book had a lot of potential. Really the whole series does. I usually love Jaymin's books but this fell a little short for me. I get it's hard to write a full connecting story into one book. I just didn't get the full connection here with the "main" characters, mainly because they never seemed to be together. It's this love story and Daniel keeps saying he'll never leave her but then they constantly are apart. Yet they fall so deep in love. It's hard to connect to. T ...more
I loved this world that Jaymin created!!! This story follows two different main characters, Callie and Daniel. Emma, Lexen, and the others make an appearance through. Its a continuation of a bigger story over all. I LOVED Callie. She's funny, vulnerable, and strong. Callie and Daniel (who is so dreamy) have a fun chemistry. I read this book in one gulp because I couldn't put it down; it was intense, action packed, tender moments. I enjoyed seeing the other characters from another perspective. I ...more
Secret Keepers 2
My main issue with this book is that everything seemed so forced upon the reader. I don't think I like Callie, but we were instantly supposed to accept her and Daniel's relationship? They met in New Orleans and Daniel wanted to help her and next thing you know they're soul bonded and next thing you know they're in love? I am not buying it. I am disappointed because I really felt the strong attachment to Daniel in House of Darken and I wanted him to have an elaborate story line wo ...more
The second Secret Keepers installment introduces the House of Imperial which is akin to the underworld. Think Hades and Persephone.
The storytelling here is much longer and involved to explain who are the mysterious Daelighters and this strange otherworld ruled by the four Houses.
Callie, who has been on the run for most of her life, meets the bold brash Daniel for the first time when he attempts to rescue her.
But seeing the tall, bald and gorgeous man coming at her, Callie does the o ...more
"He shouldn't have entered my place acting like a creepy shit. Creeps get punched in the dick."
By far my most favorite quote in this book!
Continuing on from the first book we have a new secret keeper, Callie.
She is used to being on the move because her mom is essentially paranoid. Beyond paranoid actually. But after they land themselves in New Orleans things seem to get more intense for them. Having been prepared her whole life by her mother she now actually has to face the fact that everything ...more
Just as good as the first.
Good, but I liked the first better
I like this series overall, but I liked the first book so much better. I feel like it had more detail, more depth. Though still fast paced I felt like the relationships in the first book happened more organically. The love was able to grow and wasn’t instant. Though, I do like that this book came up with the whole fate and soul-mate spin to explain why they fell in love so fast as an explanation. I liked Emma more than Callie, but that’s probably just preference ...more
