The Darkly Luminous Fight for Persephone Parker by Leanna Renee Hieber

The Darkly Luminous Fight for Persephone Parker is the second book that features Percy Parker and the Guard that she is to join forces with. Leanna Renee Hieber’s books have a nice pace to them, this second book was even faster paced than the first. I suppose the lead up to war often seems to fly. This book deals with the aftermath of the battle in the Guard’s chapel at Athens Academy in London. 
The Darkly Luminous Fight.. deals with a lot of the inner workings of the six people who make up the Guard and Percy. There is a lot of romance, a lot of frustrated romance, and a lot of danger and adventure. I also enjoy the view of religion or spiritualism in this novel. It touches on the theory that world religions and spiritual systems have more in common than they have differences, and it is possible that all of them could be “right.” Although the spiritualism in these books seems more centered around Greek mythology. 
I really enjoyed both of these books, I don’t know that there’s more to this series, but I would definitely consider reading what ever Ms. Hieber does next. I’m going to give The Darkly Luminous Fight for Persephone Parker, 1 bookmark
