Monster Unleashed by Shakuita Johnson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Monster Unleashed is the solidly written sequel to Dark Indiscretions. Like the first novel, it is dialogue heavy, action packed, and contains one seriously hot sex scene. The focus of this installment is Krista and how she deals with the torture that was inflicted upon her by her father and her relationship with her two mates.
As the title suggests, Krista is not dealing well with her father's torture and she is becoming the monster that Mystics are known to be. She has no regard for others and is cruel to those in her life, including her mother and her mates. She begins killing for the pleasure of it, completely disregarding 400 years of her mother's teaching.
Personally I didn't like the storyline but that was because I didn't like to see the changes in Krista and how she treated everyone. Nor did I like the way the Jenny kept reacting to Krista's behaviors – she was not the same strong woman we met in Dark Indiscretions. That said, Krista's character development is in line with the Mystic race and Jenny is reacting as one would expect a pregnant mother to respond, which is what makes Monster Unleashed a solid sequel. Fortunately Ms. Johnson introduced new elements to the storyline and I'm looking forward to reading the next installment in the series.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
