First and foremost, I applaud Konstanz Silverbow for following her dream and writing a book. I think this book is classified as paranormal young adult fiction. While the book certainly has a lot of paranormal elements, I personally feel it was more of a romance--albeit a young adult one. The book is written in first person, present tense which adds to the immediacy and intimacy of the main character. Christina is a seventeen-year-old girl, sort of. She is a demon, sort of. I'd explain what I mean but "sort of," but I don't want to ruin it. The important thing is that the narration of the book is seen through her eyes. Because of this, we spend a lot, and I mean a lot, of time on her feelings and how she is reacting to things around her. From a guy's point of view, this can be quite taxing because guys don't think that way. To that end, I think female readers will enjoy the story more. I think Konstanz has a wonderful imagination and for a debut novel, she did a wonderful job with the fantastic elements. Although I agree with the statement that "we must suspend our disbelief to be entertained" (especially when it comes to paranormal stories) there are certain elements of human behavior and logic that can't be glazed over or ignored. I was drawn out of the story when Christina bought a house for her boyfriend and had it furnished in one night. If there were paranormal elements at work then maybe I could have accepted it, but that wasn't the case. A second issue was when her "soul mate" figured out she was a demon and was completely cool with it. I think this was a missed opportunity for some compelling conflict that could have made their relationship deeper. I was a bit uneasy how "deeply" Christina fell in love with someone she is discovers is her soul mate, after all, she is only seventeen.Read more ›

What to say first? Well, first off, I love this book! It was brilliant and captivating! From the start, I've been a fan of the author. She is not only a kind person, but a excellent writer. When she dreams, she dreams far and beyond. She has the heart and ambition to go far and I believe she has a bestseller on her hands.

This book begins introducing us to the main character of this book, Christina. Christina is the only demon left on earth but, despite being a demon, she isn't evil. Actually, she doesn't even want to be a demon. She hates what she is and wishes she can be normal and have the life normal people have. To have a boyfriend. To be kissed and hugged by someone she loves, who loves her back. To put it simply, she desires to be a human. She craves light, rather than darkness. Love, rather than hate. Overtime, with the help of her new friend Finn, Christina will learn that there is more to herself then meets the eye. And that, sometimes being different, is not always a bad thing. Along the way, she might even find love. Someone who will love her for her, and not care what, or who she is.

This is an amazing book!! I loved the characters and I seriously loved the plot and the unique twists and turns in the book. It was a real page turner. I was lost in this book for hours! I can't wait to read more from the author! I really recommend this book to everyone! It's amazing!

*Note to self: Stay the heck away from Unicorns!! They're creepy and evil!*

Some of my favorite quotes:

"I can't help but watch, longing for that kind of love. To feel someone else's lips against mine. To feel the power in a kiss. To know that I am wanted.
To love and be loved. Emotions course through me, feelings I didn't know existed.

I loved the beginning of this story. It had a delightfully dark gothic flavor to it as we were introduced to Christina and followed her as she met with her mysterious boss and was sent on a mission to steal an important necklace. I loved her first meeting with Finn as she broke his teeth. He was everything I could hope for in a book boyfriend (even with being a vampire which I have gotten to overload point on) with his blond hair, good looks, humor, ironic archness, and then the book took a turn from addictive read to Christina being all clingy to this guy she is simply told is her soulmate (he’s incredibly bland and I can’t even remember his name at the moment). Other than being clingy and driven to do everything for him and spend every waking minute with him, she doesn’t seem actually in love with him. There was the preposterous gifting the guy with a mansion (why didn’t she gift Finn with a new one since she was the main cause of his being burned down), to I kept wondering where Mister’s goons were because they were supposed to be set on dispatching her and getting the necklace back, but it was like the necklace got completely forgotten by the author once Christina met her soulmate.Read more ›
