Bad boy, meet bad girl.
Dante has a shiny new cuff wrapped around his ankle, and he doesn't like that mess one bit. His new accessory comes straight from Big Guy himself and marks the former demon as a liberator. Despite his gritty past and bad boy ways, Dante Walker has been granted a second chance.
When Dante is given his first mission as a liberator to save the soul of seventeen-year-old Aspen, he knows he’s got this. But Aspen reminds him of the rebellious life he used to live and is making it difficult to resist sinful temptations. Though Dante is committed to living clean for his girlfriend Charlie, this dude’s been a playboy for far too long…and old demons die hard.
With Charlie becoming the girl she was never able to be pre-makeover and Aspen showing him how delicious it feels to embrace his inner beast, Dante will have to go somewhere he never thought he’d return to in order to accomplish the impossible: save the girl he’s been assigned to, and keep the girl he loves.
Where to find The Liberator:
was a welcome addition to the story. I liked that a female character was

and I think that the relationship that Aspen

to reflect on his own character and his own failings. Dante really begins to
grow as a character in this novel.

At the end of The Collector Dante has officially left the service of Hell and started working for the Big Guy as a Liberator for Heaven. The problem is Dante doesn’t really know what all of that entails and is content to just follow Charlie around and be the same person he always has been. That is until Big Guy sends him on a mission to liberate a girl named
Never fear all you Charlie/Dante lovers there is plenty of romance and swoon-worthy moments between the two of them in this book! Despite Charlie acting a little out of the ordinary in the beginning of the novel and Dante’s constant worrying things get ‘back to normal’ and I enjoyed the way their relationship progressed. It felt natural given all these two have been through.
One thing I feel the need to mention is that the first half of the book was a little slow. Luckily, after a pivotal moment the action revs up and the ending of The Liberator left me wanting more. I can’t wait to see what happens with Dante, Charlie, and
Overall, The Liberator was a great sequel that ends on a high note and I can’t wait to read more from Victoria Scott!
