About book The Darkly Luminous Fight For Persephone Parker (2010)

This tale was in a sense, Darkly Luminous, I guess. For me, it just didn't have the magic that made its predecessor a strangely beautiful tale. The stuff I found endearing in the first was tedious in this one. Alexi and Percy, though lovable in the first installment, were rather annoying in this one. "Oh. Percy belongs to ME! I won't allow her to go into ANY danger, even though if she doesn't we all die and the whole world with it and Percy spends eternity being tortured by the dark." Yes, that was pretty much Alexi throughout. Annoying. Percy wasn't much better. "Oh no my Alexi, please believe me. I love you. I won't have any opinions of my own, because without your constant professions of undying love, my life is over. Oh please please profess your undying love once again. And don't doubt mine. I will NEVER disobey you." Yeah. NO.The rest of the cast were just there. As usual. Rebecca, who's as unserious a human being if I've ever read about one; Elijah, who's not very likable at all; Josephine who's just there; the vicar, whose bland and forgettable and whose name I just forgot; Jane, who's marginally interesting. A new cast of characters - Beatrice, Ibrahim, and Aodhan joined in. All in all, it was a good tale, but nowhere near as good as the first tale. It was all very melodramatic and theatrical (it makes so much sense when you find that Ms. Hieber has a background in theater :D) This was an amazing book! A great second part to the first book the Stangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker. I'm so glad I stumbled across this series. I really enjoyed that the book started where the other left off, there wasn't any break inbetween like most series books have. Actually the book technically overlaps the time period of the first, the prologue was the last couple chapters from the first book just from a different viewpoint. All the charachters became more indepth. I loved the first book, but this one was so much better. Hieber had me wanting to be Percy, apart of the Guard, or at least to be in London in the late 1800s.

Do You like book The Darkly Luminous Fight For Persephone Parker (2010)?

This is a very satisfying continuation of the series. Lots of mystery and Victorian manners.

This beautifully penned paranormal in the Gothic tradition is a must-read.

Nicely finishes the story, though not as good a book as the first one.

Picked both 1 and 2 up at the PhoenixComicon in 2010.
