Blurb:

After becoming possessed by the vampire spirit Gray, telekinetic Caleb Jansen thought his situation couldn’t get any worse. But that was before Graham Forsyth, head of SPECTR’s sinister Research Division, took him into custody.

Forsyth claims he can exorcise Gray before the forty-day time limit runs out. But once at RD, Caleb and Gray find themselves ensnared in a web of lies. What is the truth behind the tests Forsyth is performing on them? What does the agency really plan to do with Gray? And most worrisome of all, why does Gray sense demons within the walls of RD’s compound?

Caleb’s boyfriend, SPECTR agent John Starkweather, has suspicions of his own. With the help of his friend Sean and a shadowy organization known only by their symbol of a moth, John intends to save Caleb and Gray at any cost.

But when divided loyalties threaten his last chance at exorcism, Caleb discovers love may come at a price higher than he’d ever imagined.

Destroyer of Worlds is not meant to be read as a standalone. HIGHLY recommend starting at Book #1 Hunter of Demons.

Whoo! Hoo! Ass-kicking time!

“Jacket blurb” pretty much sums up the plot line. All around Caleb and Gray are webs of lies and deceit: SPECTR, Forsyth, Kandiyar, Sean, even John. It’s Gray who comments wryly that it’s not NHE’s who lie, but mortals.

The magical 40 days to true possession have arrived. Caleb was approached by a unknown group claiming they could remove Gray without killing him, but before he could call, Forsyth takes Caleb into custody.

Gray, having experienced the world in panoramic surround sound, doesn’t wish to return to the half-life of animated corpses or cease to exist. Gray’s dialog with Caleb is just so mournful and bittersweet. I really enjoyed how the author turned this entity into the feeling of a coiled tiger. Nice way to give a form to something residing in someone’s head.

To say more would start dropping into spoiler land, which I really don’t want to do. Like the other books in the series, this is a fast paced, whirlwind of a book that does a good job balancing the action, the romance, and the conflicted feelings which really help to develop the characters.

I have been a voracious reader from the time I learned how to read. My Motto: "Never leave home without a book (or two or three)." Though once I learned how to knit that became "Never leave home without a book (or two or three) AND a knitting project." A long-time fan of science fiction, I've since discovered mystery/suspense/thrillers and m/m romance. I love stories that span the universe, paranormal, urban fantasy, mystery, comedy; stories with veterinarian's (yay! animals!) or a men in uniform, a splash of BDSM or a threesome can be fun, and of course, happy ever afters. IF that's not a run-on sentence, I don't know what is... I'm not a fan of historical, horror, sports, plots with children, and New Adult/Young Adult. Thanks for reading my reviews!
