Those Which Remain by Angela V. Cook
WOW. Angela V Cook does it again! If you read Into a Million Pieces, you have GOT to read this book
Publisher’s Description: In Into a Million Pieces, seventeen-year-old Allison solved her sister’s murder, barely escaping an attempt on her own life. Now, with the past behind her, Allison is finally getting a taste of teenage normalcy—going to school, hanging out with her best friend, and sharing it all with her loving boyfriend, Ren. Life is good.
But it doesn’t stay that way. It never does for a succubus.
When Allison’s nature draws in a predator, shattering her sense of trust and safety, she realizes the succubus curse is behind all the darkness and heartache in her life. Determined to end it, she tracks down a distant relative with knowledge about the curse. But more questions are raised than answered when Allison meets the mysterious and wealthy Leona Doriano. Suddenly thrust into a dangerous world of money, power, and deadly secrets, Allison must find a way to break the curse—a curse not everyone wants broken—before she’s drawn in too deep.

WOW. Angela V Cook does it again! If you read Into a Million Pieces, you have GOT to read this book. If you haven’t read it, go do that now, then come back for this one…..
If you still have unanswered questions from the first book, you’ll get your answers here! Ms. Cook does such a great job of pulling you in to such a seemingly simple story and then blowing your mind with twists and turns galore. And once again, she does a fantastic job with the sexual nature of the book – not going so far as to make it inappropriate for older teens to read (the vernacular sounds just like them), but keeping true to the succubus legends, as well.
One of the things I enjoyed, given that this is a book in a series, is that there isn’t much recap of the first book. I’m not ever thrilled when I get into the next book in a series just to reread the description of all the characters and the relationships, etc. So, I appreciated that. Anyway, in this book we find out a LOT more background on the curse over Allison and the females in her family. Can the curse be broken? Are there other advantages/disadvantages to the curse? We also find out Allison has more family – like, a lot more family – that she never knew about….on both sides of her family. And more family isn’t always a good thing. The new characters, the ups and downs that Allison experiences…..it’s just like a real teenager’s life! Except we aren’t typically succubi. And as you read, you get sucked in for the ride. I couldn’t put it down.
