A small step down from the first book in the series, but still a worthwhile read.

Another masterpiece. I particularly like the twist about the less than perfect angels. It feels like the sex scenes just happens as the story progresses. They are not overly graphical or there to please the reader. Again plot, humor etc makes this well worth price and time. Two things though. To my taste the ending feels a bit short. It would, for example, have been fun to learn what happened to Donald at the trial. Also i´d love a sequel but much rather a good one than a fast one.

Coming off fresh from a re-read of Good Intentions, Natural Consequences was a satisfying sequel. Kay has pretty much mastered the art of mixing fantasy and erotica, and having it flow smoothly. Natural Consequences takes place shortly after the events of the first book, and continue with almost all of the previous main characters, as well as some newcomers. Despite its long length of 475 pages, I found it to be rather fast paced. As much as I enjoyed the overall action/ further character development/ erotica , it isn't as good as its predecessor. Its hard for me to put a finger on what makes the first book better, but I remember pondering over how great Good Intentions was, even days after i had finished it. Don't get me wrong, the sequel is very good, and anyone who is a fan of Mr. Kay will definitely be pleased, as was I. I'd probably give it 4.5 stars but seeing as I cannot I feel I must round up!

I waited for a sequel of Good Intentions from the moment I first read it. Even before it was published as an eBook. And when I finally got this it didn’t disappoint.
The story carries on a month after the prequel ends and as the title suggests is about the consequences of the things happening in the first book. But it also is about the people (I can’t view them as mere characters anymore) from that book.
Expect breathtaking action rivaling a good action movie together with really well written erotic and some amazingly touching moments. Expect cool witches, wimpy vampires (getting beaten up again), raging werewolves and of course Angels, Demons and Alex.
I couldn’t stop reading, because it was thrilling and dragged me in. Which is what I expect from a really cool book. And if I’d forced to point out one thing that disappointed at gunpoint it was that Taylor (a character from the first book) wasn’t featured. Which makes it clear that there has to be a third book.

Personally I’d clearly recommend to read Good Intentions first to know the story as a whole. But I would think that one could read and understand Natural Consequences without that, too.

An excellent, fast-paced story. I love this series, and these characters, and was excited to see them again. The only problem I have with it is that I read it too fast, and now I have to wait for more. As mentioned in the other reviews, Natural Consequences is just that, a logical and well-done follow up to Good Intentions. It's also a good example of governmental response to supernatural activity. I especially like having werewolves and vampires being actual monsters, instead of angst-ridden superheroes. Character development was lovely, and about time. I look eagerly forward to the next book, and any short stories from this world you might share with us.

With 396 pages in the PDF version of this book, this is certainly a lengthy read and I was riveted for the whole thing.

Taking place about a month after Good Intentions, this story does a very good job of following through on the consequences from actions in the first book while also establishing and expanding upon the characters, both new and old. Another very well written masterpiece from Elliot Kay, this story does contain adult oriented content, but it is tactfully done, supplementing the story rather than attempting to be the story or simply being put in just to have the adult content.

I look forward to reading yet more masterpieces from Elliot Kay.

While it was an overall good read, it didn't quite meet the level achieved in Good Intentions. Although the events described are as the title Natural Consequences suggests, the logical results of what happened in the previous story, Natural Consequences had a much darker tone to it than Good Intentions had. The angst in Natural Consequences is understandable and well developed, but having someone deal with emotional baggage is easily overdone, even when the character's baggage is fully justified. Hopefully having resolved most of the darker loose threads, the sequel to Natural Consequences will be able to return to a more light-hearted tone. I look forward to a sequel and hope that the author continues to hone his craft in both this series as well as that of Poor Man's Fight. This series in particular reminds me of many parallels to The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher and hope that like Butcher's Dresden Files, the Good Intentions series will just improve with future additions.
