Review:  Wicked Waves (Solsti Prophecy #2) by Sharon Kay

Making daggers out of raindrops is only the tip of the iceberg for Brooke Bonham. As one of four women who can control the elements, her ability to manipulate water packs a deluge of potential. Eager to learn more, she’s frustrated at the precautions she must take to avoid the wrong kind of attention on Earth.

Kai's duties as a Lash demon have kept him busy on Earth for nearly two hundred years. Fighting? He was born to do it. Females? They're drawn to him. And Earth? The perfect place for him to avoid supernatural bounty hunters.

Though the two of them mix like oil and water, Kai senses that beneath Brooke’s frosty exterior hides a vortex of simmering passion. He’s determined to thaw his ice princess.

Forced to work together in the immortal realm, they track a rogue Lash demon at the helm of a widespread kidnapping operation. All too soon, Kai’s dark past catches up to them. Time runs out as a second enemy, bent on revenge, vows to stop at nothing short of Brooke’s enslavement and Kai’s death. As they and their foes stalk each other in a demonic game of cat-and-mouse, will her evolving skills and their fledgling bond be enough to save them?

Picking up neatly from the first book, Wicked Wind, this story works best if you have read the first to get a fuller feel for the world and the threats.  It doesn’t hurt to have characters that are well defined and developed, with snarky responses and a willingness to acknowledge their attractions even if they don’t ‘like’ one another so well.

Focusing on Brooke, sister to Nicole, she also is more than just human, and is learning the full breadth and effects of her own power.  While Nicole was more interested in not believing the truth before her eyes, Brooke is more interested in just what she can do, and just how much she can learn.  She has dedicated her time to learning to control and harness her power, and all would be just perfect if Kai didn’t keep appearing and making her unsettled.

All too aware of his own reaction to Brooke, Kai, a Lash Demon as is Gunnar, Kai had a rough start in life and carries a reasonable belief that if it exists, he can beat it.  Having Nicole underfoot was bad enough; but now Brooke is here and Kai finds he is bristling like a hedgehog and unable to be civil.  Yes, we see that these two are fated to be mates, despite their own cluelessness, but once that cat is out of the bag…… *fans self*

Again the world building and battles are exemplary, the characters MUST learn to work together to fulfill their destinies and protect the human realm.  Moving between the demonic plane and the earthly one, this story is fast paced and keeps the reader on the edge of the seat.

Kai is utterly alpha, and Brooke’s responses to him start begrudgingly but soon ramp up to show the true desire and attachments that they have for one another.  Both are fiercely independent and it is a struggle to trust in one another: until the chips are down and trust becomes the one thing that will allow their survival.

A great follow up to the first in this Solsti series, fans of UF and Paranormal romance are sure to like this action-packed ride riddled throughout with steamy moments.
