From the back of the book:
With radiant, snow-white skin and hair, Percy Parker was a beacon for Fate. True love had found her, in the tempestuous form of Professor Alexi Rychman. But her mythic destiny was not complete. Accompanying the ghosts with which she alone could converse, new and terrifying omens loomed. A war was coming, a desperate ploy of a spectral host. Victorian London would be overrun.
Yet, Percy kept faith. Within the mighty bastion of Athens Academy, alongside The Guard whose magic shielded mortals from the agents of the Underworld, she counted herself among friends. Wreathed in hallowed fire, they would stand together, no matter what dreams – or nightmares – might come.
Wow, Wow, Wow…that’s really all that I can say about this book. It picks up immediately where the first book left off. We are treated to the confirmation of the love between Percy and Alexi and then all hell breaks loose. This book explores Percy’s past as well as the other members of The Guard. I loved getting to know more about the other characters – especially Jane. Each character undergoes a change for the better during this book. The ending of this book was my favorite part, it tied up the story perfectly and there isn’t a single thing I would change. I can’t wait to read Michael and Rebecca’s story this winter!
the book girl gives THE DARKLY LUMINOUS FIGHT FOR PERSEPHONE PARKER a 5/5!
