Death Doesn't Bargain is the second historical fantasy title in New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon's Deadman's Cross series. Where Deadmen tell their tales, and every soul is damned or redeemed by the final choices they make.
The Deadmen are back...
But so are the demons who have broken free of their eternal prison and are bent on mankind's destruction. The worst of the lot is Vine, determined to claim their lives for taking hers. She will see the world burn...and has the perfect lure to destroy them all. One of their own.
Kalder Dupree has never known a day of mercy. Born to the cruelest of mer-races, he sacrificed himself for his crew and is in Vine's hands. He expects no mercy or rescue.
Yet Cameron Jack is determined to set Kalder free. As a Hellchaser, it's her calling, and she cannot allow even a not-so-innocent to be tortured for an act of kindness that spared her damnation.
To defeat evil, it sometimes takes an even worse evil, and Cameron is willing to do whatever she must to make this right. If Vine thought she had her hands full before, she hasn't seen anything nearly as powerful as Cameron's resolve.
I loved reading this book! I really enjoy Sherrilyn Kenyon books, even if I do have complaints, and yeah, this book was just so great to read! Kalder was left in a very bad spot at the end of hte last book, and yeah, it was so great to read his and Cameron's story!
After reading Stygian, I had to read this book! It's a part of the overall world, and yeah, I wish I'd read it before, even if they had not clear, direct impact on one another. It's just a way that I'm weird, and that's on me!
The beginning was a bit confusing, I mean, why would they give up both of the brothers, just to get Cameron? Yeah, it didn't quite make sense, but it was really fantastic to read! And yeah, there were a lot of twists and turns which were really great to read!
That ending was just so evil! I mean, the ending of Deadmen Walking was pretty horrible, that the bad guys had a secret advantage, but this book, it's a cliffhanger ending, that they have 2 of the good guys imprisoned!
Such a great book, and I can't wait for the 3rd and final book in the series!
