As for Maliha, she is on a quest to search the pieces of shards scattered in every corner of the world in order to destroy the seven demon offsprings of Anu while trying her best to balance the scales on her belly. She values her friends very much and can turn out to be a passionate lover as well. Romance plays an important part in this book. She finds out that another Ageless, a Roman centurion named Lucius is in love with her. But who is the one she really loves? Please note that there are adult contents in this book.
The villain in this book is so evil, he wanted to poison everyone in the big, powerful countries with something that will destroy them from the inside. And once again, Maliha is in charge of saving the world. But this nearly causes her to revert to her old ways in which she enjoys the act of killing and the feel of power and excitement it gives her.
Maliha has a strong feeling of love and protection for her friends whom she has already considered as part of her family. She is willing to go to great lengths to ensure their safety and well-being. But of course, being a human, she makes mistakes, and not just ordinary ones, but deadly ones. She blames herself for the deaths of the ones whom she fails to protect although she has tried her best.
Overall, the plot is quite entertaining and the characters are well-developed, especially Maliha. I've grown quite fond of Lucius who plays an important role in this book, and I'm sad that he has to leave the series so soon.
As a conclusion, I highly recommend the Sacrifice (Mortal Path #2) by Dakota Banks to all UF lovers who are 18 and above. Make sure you read the first book before this one so that you know what's going on. To start gaining knowledge of the series, you can read my review for Dark Time (Mortal Path #1) or visit Dakota's Website to find out more.
My deepest gratitude to Dakota Banks for sending me a signed paperback copy of Sacrifice (Mortal Path #2)! Thank you, Dakota!
