Blurb: This part-demon teen vampire fighter and her faithful terrier hellhound are once again patrolling the dark city streets of San Antonio, Texas. Val's hunky human partner, Detective Dan Sullivan, is giving her the cold shoulder since she beheaded his vampire ex-fiance. Vamp leader Alejandro is struggling to keep the peace between vamps, demons and humans. The mucho powerful Encyclopedia Magicka has been stolen, someone in the Demon Underground is poisoning vamps, and Val's inner lust demon, Lola, is getting very restless since Val's now partnered with sexy Shade, the shadow demon with the blond good looks of an angel. The second book in Parker Blue's Demon Underground urban fantasy series plunges readers deeper into a heady world of passion, friendship, intrigue and mystery. Parker Blue lives in the wilds of Colorado with her own faithful hellhound, and she's hard at work on the next Val Shapiro book in the Demon Underground series.

   This book was so much better than the first one, and I really enjoyed reading it. The book was well written and funny at times, and much more cohesive than the first one.
   I love that Val gains more confidence in this book and is better able to control her demon, Lola. She already kicks butt, so her gaining more control just makes her all the better. We find out some things about why she is so strong, and now I'm so worried about what will happen in the next couple of books.
  Shade is by far my favorite in the series, and I just can't get enough of him! I'm so excited that he got such a large role in this book because he definitely deserves it. I hated how Dan treated Val in the first book and it was refreshing to have Shade treat her like she deserves (like a person & not just a part-demon). He accepts her for who she is and that is so important in a relationship. I liked Dan before but was extremely frustrated with his behavior. With Shade, he just accepts her, all of her, and doesn't try to get her to do anything she doesn't want to do. 
  I just know that Val is going to end up losing her virginity eventually and I'm hoping it's with Shade. I mean, what Lola wants, Lola get the picture. 
   Anyways, it was a really enjoyable read and I can't wait to find out what happens next.
