Publisher's Summary

Saving the dead isn’t as simple as promised. It was supposed to be a standard routine...that is, until we discovered that I was the first Soldier of Light to receive visions of the souls’ worst sins. The very sins that put them in the Dark Realm with the devil. Sins that are unforgivable. 

Hayden, my sexy guardian angel, tells me there are consequences if I don’t save these lost souls. But how do I save souls that have committed such despicable acts, especially when I have to live through their death in order for them to move on? 

To make matters even more complicated, the devil believes he sees a darkness in me that matches his own. And to tell you the truth, I fear he may be right. Because, each soul I must save makes me despise the world I’m forced to live in even more. 

The one silver lining keeping me grounded is Hayden, until I come face-to-face with a secret he’s kept from me since the beginning.

Entertaining Page Turner

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily posting this review and all opinions expressed herein are my own.

This is book two of the Negative Zero series. It is not a standalone and ends on a cliffhanger.

I consider this book to be the building blocks for all that is going to happen in book 3 of this series. The story moves slowly in developing the relationship between Evika and Hayden, as well as, exploring Evika's family/past. While some reviewers did not like the leisurely pace, I really enjoyed spending the time to get to know Evika more. She is having some interesting dreams/visitors, which are only lightly touched upon but that I believe she will likely have to contend with in the next book. I really enjoy how this story is told from the first person POV of Evika - who is still trying to come into her own while having to deal with some very overwhelming issues. I am completely fascinated with Alysto and the role he will play as the story evolves.

The narrator, Sarah Stevens, is very easy to listen to - she provides voices for the various characters and really pulls you into the story with her narration.

Good!

Picking up where we left off this book like the first doesn't disappoint. The characters grew throughout this book. I have to say I love Luca, he's one of my favorites. This is such a unique story and has kept me intrigued from the start. The narrator does an amazing job! Good series!

🖤

Absolute Zero picked up right where Negative Zero left off! I’m always skeptical of the second book in series, because they rarely live up to the first book. But I loved Absolute Zero! It did not disappoint. I adored Hayden & Evika and thought the pace of their romance was perfect. Evika also matured a lot in this book, making it a lot more enjoyable. I look forward to the next book!

Wanted the plot to focus on Soldier of Light part

Absolute Zero is the next book in the series after Negative Zero. While I generally liked the book, I was more frustrated that the pace was slow and most of the book was hanging out or partying, and not dealing with the actual situations. Evika's duties as Soldier of Light were completely glossed over. I would have liked to see some scenes showing us more of her actual job. The romance between Evika and Hayden and ultimately leading to Hayden's decision was enjoyable, but the bigger issues at play introduced only briefly were frustrating. But I'm definitely curious to see how it all plays out, especially the plotline with Alysto. I did enjoy the audio narration. The pacing and voices were great. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I’m Not Sure What to Think

I’m an older reader so o guess I have a different perspective on life than most readers. The majority of this boom as just the story of two people falling in love. The main character seemed to be calming down and getting a grip on her new reality. It is a nice, sweet book for the most part. But, the ending has me flummoxed. I don’t like the decision Hayden made at all. And I hate the way Evicka acted at the end. I just hate it. I am definitely curious what will happen next. It’s going to be a long wait!

Absolute Zero

This the second book in the series. It picks up right where Negative Zero ends. This has a slow build in the romance. I really enjoyed this book. Interested to see what will happen next.

gets better

This story is one that gets better as you listen. At first the narrator sounded like a computer but she eased into the different characters fairly well as it progressed. Most of the story was focused on the slow burn romance than any other plot line, but I actually didnt mind that. Hayden sounds like a dream. The main female matures a little more in this book, she is more contemplative even though she still acts rashly. But the ending.....wow! If i was given all the time in the world to predict that twist I would have never come up with it. I am looking forward to hearing how the new chatacter fits in and where the story goes next.

Another fabulous book/audio book!

Evika and Hayden teased with their slow burn ...

I really love the voice of the narrator, and the mixture of the duo's dynamics woven into the progress that Evika is making - without forgetting this is a young woman, adapting to a hidden world with a serious moral dilemma when it comes to freeing those repentant souls.
