This is the third spicy installment in the “A Touch of Darkness'' books and practically redeemed the series for me! “Malice” shows the growth that came from the unfortunate, immature plot of its predecessor; Persephone is done making rash decisions, and in good time, as her mother Demeter is ravaging the Upperworld with a fatal blizzard, a human terrorist group known as the Triad is attacking gods and godesses, and her engagement to Hades gets unwanted attention from the Olympians, who fear that their marriage will bring an end to their long-held power. Lots of plot, but also lots of romance, discussions of grief and trauma, and a jaw-dropping cliffhanger that’ll make you ache for the fourth installment. ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz
