I love this book. It's original. It gives twists to the legends that we know about supernatural beings, from elves, to werewolves, to vampires and demons.
The story is about Christina, a demon who wants nothing more than to be an ordinary girl. To feel what everyone else feels and to live in the light instead of the shadows. She works for Mr. Duke, stealing for him to make the only living a 17 year old demon girl can.
On her last mission she found Finn who had the answers she had been waiting for. She failed her first mission from Mr. Duke and decided to stop playing his game and working for him. When Mr. Duke finds out he starts hunting her. Christina does what she can to avoid him while finding the answers she needs and find her soul mate.
I wish the final battle scene was a bit longer and had just a tiny more suspense. I also wish the necklace was explained more. It started out, what appeared to be a big piece in the story but ended up not being part of what happened the second half of the story.
4.5 out of 5
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. One of them I know well: jealousy. That is a feeling that is familiar to me. My heart aches every time I feel that stab of longing."
""You're a vampire with a broken nose and broken teeth for the rest of all eternity. You have to admit, it's kinda funny. And really, you should've just shown your face instead of attempting to be mysterious. Because look where that got you."
"The hardest part is watching you fall in love with someone else."
