AUTHORS HQ: "All Hallows Night" by Marie Hall **REVIEW ADDED**


All Hallows Night (Night Series #2)

by Marie Hall
Publication Date: March 8, 2014 
Genre: Urban Fantasy

Secrets and truths, lies and red herrings… which is which? 

That’s what Pandora’s trying to figure out. Ever since the death of her best, and probably only friend by her own hands, she’s not sure who to trust anymore. The Priest is dead. The Gray Man is… she’s not even sure what. Luc, well, Luc is Luc.

The Order has sent her deep into the heart of Mexico to investigate a potential zombie uprising.

She arrives at the start of the Dia de los Muertos festival—a celebration for the dead and immediately things don’t feel right to her. For one, bodies (the living kind) keep disappearing.
They’re not being kidnapped, no, if only things were that simple. Literally there one second, gone the next, she’s not sure what to make of it. On top of that mum’s are floating all over the place. Is that merely symbolism associated with the festival, or is it a clue of something far more sinister?

In this explosive sequel to the USA Today Bestselling, Crimson Night, an old ally returns and a shocking truth is revealed. One that will turn her investigation into The Order’s duplicity on its head and make Pandora question everything she ever thought she knew…
I’d meant to ask around town, see if any of the locals knew of or had heard about any recent or strange deaths, but I was a stranger to them. A gringa (white face), they wouldn’t trust me enough to answer me.

Part of Lust’s glamour was that I could turn myself into the walking embodiment of anybody’s deepest desire, but doing so also required that I had sex recently. A sort of tit for tat kind of arrangement. But since that night and the possession of my third soul, Lust wasn’t working so well for me anymore. My desire for sex was practically nil. Luc was the first person I’d slept with since waking from my semi-coma, and even that had left me empty and cold.

I knew I should be a lot more worried than I actually was—I dunno, maybe Lust was still in shock after our stint in Hell.

Meeting Wrath had done things to Lust, screwed with her head. She was like a whimpering, terrified dog tucking tail and hiding in a corner, and there wasn’t much I could do to bring her out.

So I had to do this sleuthing thing the good old-fashioned way.

Being as old as I am, you get a feeling for people. The outer shell might be different, but the inside was always the same. 

If I wanted to find what I was looking for, I had to go someplace designed to loosen tongues and get men talking. Get a man drunk enough and he’ll tell you anything you want to know.Opening the door to the first dive I found in town, I entered and stood just inside as my eyes slowly adjusted to the dim lighting.

about author

Marie Hall is a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author who loves books that make you think, or feel something. Preferably both. And while she's a total girly girl and loves glitter and rainbows, she's just as happy when she's writing about the dark underbelly of society. Well, if things like zombies, and vampires, and werewolves, and mermaids existed. (Although she has it on good authority that mermaids do in fact exist, because the internet told her so.) She's married to the love of her life, a sexy beast of a caveman who likes to refer to himself as Big Hunk. She has two awesome kids, lives in Hawaii, loves cooking and occasionally has been known to crochet. She also really loves talking about herself in the third person.

I loved the first book in this series, and this second book didnt disappoint.
Again, we are following Pandora, the demon whos sin is lust.  However on her trip to hell in the last book, she also picked up another - pestilince, which shes trying so hard to control.

The Priest shows up, and the relationship between him and Pandora begins to move and its a great relationship to watch evolve.  However, his kind kill demons so the others at the carnival are a little less trusting of him.

Pandoras visit to Grace (the contact to the Order) reveals that "hives" of zombies are around and need to be seen to.
This is an understatement.

Especially when one plain night at the carnival, hoards of zombies attack without thought and viciously. This isnt right. This isnt the MO of the regular zombie.

Again, Pandora is seeming to be the target and she has no idea why.
Signs are left everywhere to let it be known its Pandora that theyre after.
Grace ups and leaves and tells Pandora to do the same to keep her safe....

Will the whole carnival up sticks and move for Pandora?
Her relationship with Luc has disintegrated since her visit to hell, what on earth will he think? And he doesnt trust the priest at all.....
Whats with the unusual zombie activity?
There is normally only one person they take orders from and thats the Queen. But will Pandora be able to find her? Will SHE hold some answers?

Another really great read, i totally recommend it.  Yes its demons, but its showing them in a totally different light and its fascinating and unusual perspective.

Trust me, you wont regret reading this series if paranormal is your thing! 
Just be sure to read the first book "Crimson Nights" first so you are clued up with the rest of the series!

Next please Ms Hall!!
