Salvation is the second novella in the series called Keepers of Hell by Danielle James. Ash’ fortunes have turned. After spending years being under the control of a demon, Ash now has all the power. But these new powers, both the physical powers and the new political power, have a large learning curve. His naiveté provides his political opposition some unique opportunities to cause havoc. At the same time, Ash is overwhelmed with some rootless unhappiness and anger. As he tries to figure out his new life, Ash must also try to figure out what is causing his irrational mood.
Unfortunately, this novella missed the mark for me. However, there were many things that I thought were much improved from the first novel. This second novella had a more developed plot than the first novella. This might be because some initial groundwork was laid out in the first novella. This allowed James to give a stronger focus to the development of the paranormal aspects of the series. The plotline is a new take on some classic ideas, which is interesting. However, like the first novella, I think this one suffered a little from the short length as well. Most of the characters needed further development. However, I did like the inclusion of the former vampire assistant that Ash is sent by God. While goofy, he provided much needed comic relief. The cliffhanger in the first novella helped build the driving points for this stories plot. The reader should be warned, there are some violent scenes. And I personally did not feel that this aspect of the novella was handled well throughout the story. This novella too ends with a big revelation that sets the story for the next installment. This story was also infused with romance, but like before I felt like it was missing a critical mental compatibility between the two characters that was never developed.
The narration by Miles Taylor was alright. Once again, I thought that the voicing of the different characters could have been more dynamic, but overall it was fine. The production quality was good. I would recommend this novella to anyone who likes urban fantasy with a heavy influence of physical romance.
