Demon Heart 2: Never Say Die
David Crane & Mary HolzrichterPosted 20 November 2019 by the-librarian
Naoko Kitamura saved the world six years ago and died in the process. Well, she was presumed dead because no human could possibly survive the nuclear meltdown she walked into to fix. Fortunately for her, and the world, she is a human-demon hybrid. She walked away from the her life in Osaka and moved to Tokyo and works for the secret organization Katana that saves the world from evil, both the human and supernatural kinds. She lives this life in secret while being married and helping to raise two children.
Mr. Crane has created a rich world that is an interesting background for the characters to grow in. There are a lot of interesting things that can, and do, happen in this world. It’s like a supernatural James Bond novel if he were a family man. It is the second book in the series and is a worthy successor to the original.
I love that the protagonist and hero of the book is a strong female character and that her family and friends, which are important to her, are not just an afterthought of the story but play a key role.
I really enjoyed the story and the characters. There are parts that could stand to be edited a little more (a few dropped articles every page or so) but it was not too distracting from the interesting and fun story.
If a supernatural James Bond novel sounds like something you might enjoy, or enjoy Japanese culture and that samurai, then you will love this novel. It is a solid, fun adventure.
