Demigods and Monsters (Sphinx #2) by Raye Wagner (Review)

    A fantastic second installment of the Sphinx series, Demigods and Monsters continues the story of Hope as she fights to stay safe and break the ancient curse the God Apollo placed on her family. Hope is a sphinx, a decedent of the ancient sphinx from Thebes, and she's on the run. Cursed to be a monster known as the sphinx, she's on the run from gods, demigods and Hades's minions. Leaving Athan and the town she was just getting comfortable in behind, Hope is desperately sneaks into a Conservatory for Demigods who would kill her if they knew what she was. Action packed and full of suspense and mystery, Demigods and Monsters had me at the edge of my seat.
    Just like in The Curse of The Sphinx, Demigods and Monsters was addicting and left me wanting so much more! I love Hope, she is an extremely well rounded character who is strong and yet at the same time vulnerable. On a more shallow look at her, ever the idea of her is interesting to read about. From how she is on the run to her magical ability to shift into a sphinx, her character was great to read about. Plot wise, Demigods and Monster is very well developed. The story unraveled at a good pace that keeps readers on their toes and doesn't leave them board. The is plenty of mystery and plot twists in this novel that had me unable to put the book down and reading until four in the morning. Romance wise, this book was very good at keeping romantic tension without overdoing it or basing the entire plot off the romance aspect of the novel. I am hooked and simply cannot wait for the next installment of the series. I recommend both Demigods and Monsters, as well as the first book in the series The Curse of the Sphinx! I give Demigods and Monsters the high rating of FIVE OUT OF FIVE STARS!!!
