Highly recommended- great summer read!
on June 3, 2011
Ms. King's debut novel had me from the start. Her characters drew me in and I was unable to put the book down, er, turn off my computer. The storyline, that of a teen conflicted, is certainly a familiar one, and when I noted the addition of the supernatural element, I thought I had the plot already figured out. However, after the first chapter, I stood corrected. The world Ms. King constructs is a different one that engaged my brain and imagination, and that is just where Ms. King's novel takes off.
Liora Greyson is a high school senior who has a witch for a guardian and a demon sharing her body. Not a demon as in an "I'm going to take you and eat you", but as in her demon is a fractured part of her and she cannot live without it. Liora controls their shared body during the daytime and Lucky, her demon counterpart, has the night.
The two have different lives in entirely different worlds, literally. It isn't until the world of the supernatural bleeds over into the realm of the humans, or Sapies as Lucky calls them, that the fragile truce between Liora and Lucky is threatened.
I would highly recommend this book for anyone over the age of 13. There is no overly foul language beyond a few minor curses and no graphic sexuality although there are some undercurrents (Lucky's friend is half incubus so he does tend to go off searching for virgins). It's a great read and it has left me ready for book 2. -- Heather Savage, Staccato Publishing
