Review Netherworld and Dark Prophet by K.N. Lee (The chronicles of Koa Book 1-2)

What would you do if a demon threatened your mother's life? If you're like Koa, you'd sharpen your enchanted sword and go after him... 
Our world is threatened by the creatures of an alternate land called the Netherworld. Koa and the Netherworld division are there to keep the vampire population in check. Koa is a powerful half-blood vampire. Her best friend is her boss, she has a cursed mother, an enchanted sword, and an attractive human pet. 
Koa also has a problem. A Netherworld serial killer, with a taste for little girls, threatens everything Koa has worked hard to protect. Not even Koa's boss, Halston can stop him. But he knows one prisoner that can. Too bad that prison is in the Netherworld. 
Is Koa ready to journey to the Netherworld to release the one creature that can break her mother's curse and protect all that she holds dear?

My Review and Thoughts:

“You are the key to our ability to coexist with the human world.”

Netherworld I’m ashamed to say has been on my wishlist for over a year! Finally reading it, I can’t believe I’ve waited this long to jump into action with Koa! This book is filled with my style of reading! A kickass female lead, secrets, hot men, demons, angels, and new worlds…all equal to Pandora’s favorite!

Koa is a feisty firecracker who doesn’t take lightly to the things that bump at night. Even being half vampire, she’s still determined to keep order in her world. With the guidance of Halston, she strives to be the best member of the Netherworld Divison. But there’s many secrets Koa doesn’t know of. In fact a portion of her memory has been tampered with to forget for time being. She doesn’t know why her magical Lyrinian sword beats to the blood of evil or why she has these flashbacks of an unknown life. With her mom cursed as a cat and dead young girls showing up, Koa needs to find who’s behind all of this. Before she knows it, her one ally maybe the one who caused her life in immediate danger and enemy who she helps escape maybe her past lover!

I loved each character that was in this story! Bund fit the part of a sadistic demon. Evina and her special skills was another great addition to the group of misfits. Jax mixed with mystery is added just in time to spin the story around a few times! Koa goes on a journey and shows her skills more than once. The story goes different characters view. Romance is entwine but not the main focus, just enough to keep the gitty smiles!

This book has amazing spins and world building! Koa goes from our world to the dark and creepy Netherworld. The plot line spun in one direction and went a different one…all in a good way! The only question I would have is if the human world knew or how did the vamps come to coexist. Other than that, I highly recommend for fantasy, paranormal readers!

Major Cliffhanger, so have one-click ready! Book two is available to read!
I love it so much the same day I order book two and finished reading!  
Thank you NetGalley providing a copy for honest review!

“You know Evina, she is a temptress, and you can’t ask for a better skill than that when it comes to getting other vampires on your side. Al is recruiting others topside to infiltrate Greggan’s organization. And Jax,” Halston paused and Koa tensed at the name. “You are going to free him, because he is the key to killing Greggan and freeing your mother from her curse. Your mother, she is only one who can stop Bund.”

Not all vampires are created equal...
Koa is a half-blood vampire with not only the ability to fly, but survive in the sun's light. She will do anything to protect her mother, and break her curse. The demon, Bund, wants more than her mother's life. He wants something from Koa, a power that she doesn't even know she has, and will rip through as many humans as he can to get her to surrender.
Agent Koa Ryeo-won, and her boss, Halston, formed a crew of supernatural agents to stop Bund. But is a prophet, a temptress, a War-Breeder, a half-blood with an enchanted sword, and a few angels enough to stop what Bund has planned?
In the midst of a war between the humans of the mortal world, and the creatures of the Netherworld, Koa discovers the truth of her past. She finds herself torn between two men, and in the center of everything. Faced with all of her returned memories, Koa also finds herself more powerful than ever. Being a half-blood is hard enough, but what exactly is Koa's other half?
The truth can save...or destroy everything. 
Will the Netherworld Division stand behind Koa once they learn her secret?

My Review and Thoughts:

First lets admire this beautiful cover...sigh... Book two continues right off of book one. Koa is reunited with Jax and many secrets are unraveled, a whole past that was erased from Koa's mind!!
Book two adds more spins to the already building plot and NO, we don't get any answers yet (yes there's a book three)

A little steam is introduced with both Halston and Jax...and Koa!!! hehe  What I love about this author is the many unique characters she has created and made it work. Sometimes to many characters can create overload and undeveloped but I think she successfully used them will and revealed others in perfect timing. Of course, I also love how she has more than one kickass female showing their skills! I was bit disappointed that I still don't know why everyone is after Koa!! All we know is there's a demon Bund, Greggan, and who knows who else wanting a piece of Koa. A bit was briefly explained because she walks in daylight and they want mini spawns of her but what else is so grand!!!! Anyways, I still can't wait to book three and still love the series!

"They both wanted the mysterious, prophesized, half-blood princess...but for very different reasons."
Goodreads add book two here

There's no scheduled date for book three but on Ms. Lee's site she does have it that it's in progress!! Authors website update here!
