Callie is a fascinating character. In the prologue we get our first taste of her right after she has gotten her first and last taste of Owen. It is obvious that the girl is struggling with her demon-infection because killing Owen felt soooo much better than Callie wants it to.
Quite literally we are off to a killer start. While the first scene was violent, the rest is not about violence, far from it.
Imagine the relief and terror it must have inspired in Callie to discover that she was not the only demon-bitten person running around in the world. Here you are living life with parents and a brother you love and then - kaboom - you get bitten by a demonridden best friend, watch your brother have his head torn off by that same friend and end up killing that friend yourself. All in a day's work. In Callie's case it got her thrown into a psychiatric institution from which she ended up running away from.
Then some other crazies find her and claim they too are infected and somehow those crazies become her family - a slightly dysfunctional family, but Callie is used to dysfunction.
Silas is the one who is in charge. He has the most experience with the demon/witch world. Edie and Mark are his students. All of them have great respect for Callie's powers but are prepared to kill her if she becomes a danger (their definition of danger). Callie is greatly relieved knowing that. Edie seems afraid of her and Mark cannot decide whether he lusts after Callie.
I also love the lead character, Callie. She is a multi-dimensional character, showing us the vulnerabilities of teenage womanhood at the same time that she shows her strength and determination to do what she thinks is right. And despite her fear, Callie won’t take no for an answer.
In short, Callie rocks, as does Wolfe’s writing style!
I look forward to her next book 'Addicted'!
Cover: A very nice cover, cool colors and a unique take on a paranormal story.
My Thoughts: Well as for being a paranormal writer myself, I was happy with this book. The author did a great job creating her own version of the popular creatures that are flooding today's pop culture. Her characters were well developed and extremely likable, it could use some final polishing to make certain scenes and sentences run a bit smoother but overall a very exciting and interesting read.
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
This was good, but like another reviewer said, "It isn't enough to make me want to read more."
