I used to be ordinary Samantha Day, but that's changed. Now, after one dark kiss from a dangerous boy, I can steal someone's soul...or their life. If I give in to the constant hunger inside me, I hurt anyone I kiss. If I don't...I hurt myself.   
Bishop is the one whose kiss I crave most, but if I kiss him, I'll kill him. Then there's another boy, one I can't hurt. One whose kiss seems to miraculously quell my hunger. They're both part of a team of angels and demons that's joined forces in my city to fight a mysterious rising darkness, an evil that threatens everyone I know and love. I just wonder if I'll be able to help Bishop-or if I'm just another part of the darkness he's sworn to destroy....   
When angels and demons must work together, something beyond evil is rising...
Wicked Kiss is the perfect sequel to Dark Kiss. With no third book in the making as of right now, Wicked Kiss ties up some of the ends that were still loose at the end of its predecessor. Natalie might have been defeated, but the grays are still there, and worse, they are changing. We also have a new angel joining the troops, Cassandra, and two new threats are also bringing trouble to Sam, Bishop and Co. One thing I liked a lot about this sequel was how fast paced it was. No time to get bored with this book, that’s for sure. If you were hooked by Dark Kiss, this sequel won’t be any different.

One thing is for sure, Michelle Rowen isn’t afraid to kill off her characters, nor is she afraid to make them go through hell (no pun intended). Sam is still the same girl deep down that we met in Dark Kiss, but she has a lot more to deal with than before. She has to deal with her Hunger, the loss of her best friend Carly, her missing soul, and her so complicated relationship with Bishop. I can’t forget about Kraven, and his actions towards Sam, which makes things more complicated for Sam. What I loved about Wicked Kiss is the new back-story we are given about Bishop, Kraven, the other angels, and Sam’s parents. This changes what we might believe about the characters we loved and hated. It made Bishop and Kraven a lot more interesting, and it gave them more depth.

Wicked Kiss was definitely a strong sequel to Dark Kiss. I enjoyed the story Michelle Rowen created. I really appreciated that we have a great ending that gives us some kind of closure with the series. This is a fun and addicting series that will keep you hooked, and I can’t wait to read more from Michelle Rowen. The Nightwatchers series was a really great surprised, as I had no expectation when I first started it. Wicked Kiss gave us a great ending!
