Like the first book I’ve seen Lori Foster writing as L.L. Foster’s Servant series in the past month since it released at Barnes & Noble. It wasn’t until Lori Foster herself contacted me about reading and reviewing her Servant series that I had the chance to read them. As soon as I finished reading the first book Servant: The Awakening I immediately picked up this book because I was addicted to Gabrielle Cody and Luther Cross and wanted to know what happened next between them. Gaby and Luther had some unfinished business between them at the end of the first book that had me very anxious to find otu what happens next for them and their budding relationship. I also wanted to see what was going on with Mort because he had changed almost completely at the end of the first novel especially since it seemed that Luther’s police partner Ann was interested in Mort. I thought that this novel was better than the first for me because I already felt like I have a hold on what type of person Gaby is and her relationship with Luther is very intriguing.
The last book dealt with creepy cancerous people who seems like evil demons which is something I don’t completely understand how it happened, while in this novel it deals with something I’ve read about happening before in mystery novels and such. I also liked this book better because Gaby and Luther’s relationship is developing quickly and things are really heating up between them, which I’m glad is finally happening. I also thought that it was great that Morth is in this novel as a more secure and manly man who now has a detective as a girlfriend. It was also great that Gaby has developed a sisterly relationship with the young girl she saved in the first novel whose name is Bliss. I liked the character Bliss because she also has a gifted power of seeing things that will happen or had happened and this is something that Gaby can relate to.
I liked the development of all the characters such as the hero and heroine, Gaby and Luther and also the important secondary characters such as Mort, Ann and even Bliss. By the end of this second book in this wonderfully written series that has captivated me since the first book has me anxiously waiting for more. I’m happy that the third book Servant: Kindred will be coming out in a couple of months next year. Again I am so thankful that Lori got a hold of me and asked me to review this exciting series and she now has a devoted Servant series fan. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:
SERVANT: THE ACCEPTANCE $ 7.99 (Book 3)(298 Pages)
Gabriella Cody has accepted her destiny as God’s warrior charged to destroy all evil. Surrounded by violence, she must be ready for anything, but Gaby wasn’t prepared to see Detective Luther Cross ever again. He’s the beacon of reality in her life, the one thing that makes her feel human, like a real woman. Because she has work to do—this time protecting the street-walkers—Gaby resists involvement with Luther now, though he gives her purpose, something more than just working at God’s whim. But her life retribution is far too dangerous even for Luther, and this time it’s not just their hearts that won’t come out unscathed…
