I found this book to be very enjoyable. I'm hoping there will be a second book.

From the time I started reading I was intrigued with what would happen in the main conflict of the story. I just couldn't put the book down although I had to a few times. Quite a long book, but good. There are quite a few supernatural events to keep the reader reading and wanting more. The characters and the secondary themes were the most intriguing of the book.Ms. Orosz wrote the characters so that you could visualize and hear them speaking. The author didn't give a clean cut between evil and good. Ms. Orosz raising the question of morality within an individuals own beliefs.

I do wish the author had given a few more details about the characters previous lives.. What we hear of is their lives now. I feel any time a reader is left wanting more, then that is a good book. I'm hoping there will be a book two. The author gave some really good major themes in the book.
1. The idea that not being "normal" is okay.
None of us are normal, whatever normal may be.

2.Turning creature tropes on their heads.

3. The misguided nature of the "Satanic Panic" in the 1980's. To some this was quite a scare and to others it was a possible different approach to "religion".

4. Feeling that good and evil aren't always so black and white. Nothing is black and white, there is a gray section in everything. Everyone has good and evil i n them, only to different extents.

5. Showing strength in different ways. Strength is not always physical. Strength can be mental and emotional.

6. Finding friendship in unexpected places.

I enjoyed this book very much, and I hope there will be a sequel. From the beginning of first chapter, I wanted to find out what would happen in the main conflict, and I ended up reading it in one afternoon/night/early morning (not always the case with me these days... I love a book that makes me keep reading until 2am!). The plot takes several twists, and there are enough supernatural events to keep fantasy readers happy. The strongest elements of the book for me, though, were the characterization and the bigger themes underlying the story. I came away feeling that I could see and hear several characters, particularly some of the supporting ones (favorite was Patron of Los Angeles). The book does not give a clear-cut definition of good and evil, but rather raises questions of morality within belief systems and on both sides of conflict. It seems to explore the definition and experience of servitude in a context which echoes current events, though it was done through a supernatural character. The only downside was that I was left wanting more details about the main character's backstory. I am glad that I was left wanting more rather than less, and I hope that will be in a 2nd book.

I like books that provide a mental escape while exploring questions relevant to human relationships and ethics, and I like to be reminded of a book after I finish reading. This one did all of that. The book reminded me a little of some of Anne Rice's books, but this one all takes place in the present day (well, 1980's... another similarity to the Lestat book). I would read more books by this author.

Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
I was so looking forward to this book, the description sounded really interesting. Sadly though it didn't work for me and I gave up on it, after struggling to get a third of the way through and feeling I still didn't understand what was going on.
I didn't like Cain, I though we'd be getting a Demon, an adult trapped by a spell but one who would be strong and powerful and looking for a way out. Instead he comes across as a sad, browbeaten creature, more or less just a boy in attitude, accepting his lot though resentfully. I know the memory loss he has doesn't help, but I thought he'd have been looking for some way out of the awful life he leads, even given the restrictions he's under.
Then when he's on that mission for his master out of town, he's out on the streets, living rough and an extrordinary amount of time is spent on this, his day to day living, how he's killing rats, rabbits etc to eat...and how the peole around regard him as an animal almost, giving him scraps for food in exchange tfor the pest control. He has money- he bought the guitar, so why didn't he buy food and accomodation? That was odd to me,maybe there were reasons but I couldn't work them out. Then getting what seemed like page after page about him killing rats with his teeth and eating them – eurgghhh, and that was wasted time on something that could have been brief. The story moved on very, very slowly, and I skipped ahead and kept looking forward to see if it improved, but I just didn't find anything to engage me, any people to like, any storyline that sounded beliveable.
