Book Review: Cataclysm (Supernova #2) by C.L. Parker

Kerrigan Cruz and Dominic Grayson thought the worst of the storm was behind them. In reality, they have only weathered impossible odds to find they are smack dab in the eye of an unforgiving cyclone. More is on the way. The raging bands of chaos that surrounds them are forcing the destructive walls of the monster to close in around them. Taking on a life of its own, the storm growls and gnashes its teeth, threatening to devour everything they ever were or ever will be. There will be nothing but devastation left in its wake, and it sets its sights on Kerrigan and Dominic.

Through the howling winds and punishing lashes of rain, a stranger comes. The promise of a better tomorrow, a brighter, sunnier life filled with hopes and dreams rests in the palm of his hand. It is knowledge, a formidable weapon when wielded by the right person at just the right time. If she can only harness the power of this stranger’s knowledge, Kerrigan may be able to save the one she loves before he fades into nothingness, and she is left all alone.

But is this stranger friend or foe? Drawn to her side by an unseen force, will he enlighten Kerrigan or will he seek to claim her for his own?

Through the darkness of night, Light will lead the way.

I'd like to thank the publisher for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.  Cataclysm is the second book in the Supernova series by C.L. Parker.  I reviewed the first book, Supernova earlier this year.  I could paste and copy that review right here and it would stand for both books.  C.L. Parker did a great job with her novel, hitting just the right notes of romance, supernatural, thriller, and humor.

I didn't think it was possible, but the characters were even more vivid in Cataclysm.  Even the secondary characters sparkled with life.  The bantering between them was hysterical, and the obvious care, protectiveness, and love they had for each other was a joy to read.

As for the romance, do you like it hot and steamy?  And lots of it?  Kerrigan and Dominic provide all you could want.  Just one look between them raises the temperature in the room by a couple degrees!  It's fairly explicit, so be prepared.  It had me blushing!

The story moves smoothly at a good pace.  It kept my attention the whole way through.  I read it in two sessions (only because I fell asleep at 2am during the first reading).  Cataclysm is a great supernatural romance for adults.  Make sure you read them both, and let's hope for a third in the series!

I give this book 4 Bookworms.
