The Ripple Effect by J.A. Saare

The Ripple Effect (Rhiannon's Law, #3)
Good Reads Summary 
The Ripple Effect by J.A. Saare

There is always a price to pay…

Rhiannon Murphy visited the future, witnessed hell on earth and made choices to change things for the greater good. Unfortunately there are consequences for her actions, the penalties for her interference possibly more than she can bear. Determined to sever her debt with a fallen angel, she pushes everything aside, focusing on locating Marigold Vesta’s resting place.

Until death comes knocking at her door.

When Disco’s maker arrives in New York, he resents Rhiannon on a level she can’t begin to comprehend. Yet Marius isn’t her most dangerous adversary, not by a long shot. Marius’s sire -- a half-demon -- is determined to see the necromancer who stunned the vampire world on her knees. If she won’t bend, he’ll do everything in his power to make her break. No price is too high, meaning no one is safe -- including Disco and Paine.

Dealt a blow from which she can never recover, Rhiannon turns to the only person who can help her: the fallen angel who is relying on Rhiannon to save her soul. Bartering with a creature from Heaven is probably just as dangerous as starting a war with a demon from Hell, but with nothing to lose it’s no longer about life or death.

It’s about getting even.


My Thoughts
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Let's keep this short: People start to pick sides. People act out of character. But Holy schnauzer! What did you do, J.A. Saare?! You’re certainly unafraid of going the extra mile! It’s bloody, it’s gory, the baddies pure evil.  The people who love them, absolutely do so, because they do the most evil things on their object’s behalf. It’s interesting how she’s so angry, and justifiably so, but is torn, for just because she’s angry at him doesn’t make her stop having those old feelings. And while their names still make me laugh (Disco’s in particular), who cares when it’s all in their actions: he does some shitty things, but she does some careless others. They match up in terms of screwing up, but enjoyed the ride. Plus, what I thought of as an inevitable love triangle had me worried; how that’s tackled in this one still has me shocked.

Poor him! Poor all of them! It’s fast, it’s sexy… and I have high hopes for the next one.

3/5
