In this novel, Cosper has set up a detailed world of demon hunting, family legacies, and a great cast of characters.
To be completely honest I know almost nothing about the world of demons, or much of the supernatural in general that this novel deals with. It's because of that, that I say Cosper was able to in a way teach me the ways of this world effectively through Gabriella's character. Gabriella is a centuries old human with a curse. She's been around for a long time hunting various demons. She knows things. The Van Helsing brothers of this current generation, they know next to nothing compared to her. This teacher student relationship made it easy to learn with the characters.
What I enjoyed about the characters was that they weren't all buddy-buddy as a team. Just because one of them tells the other something it didn't mean that it would be believed. Despite the main conflict of hunting down the devil, Ose, the inner struggles of the group often come into play. This lead to many sections of non-stop reading. There was also a good balance between the back story given for some characters and back story that was withheld. While I'd like to have known a bit more about a few of them, I also understand that details will unfold as the series comes along. An author can't tell everything in the first book.
I feel that Cosper has a vast understanding of the supernatural world, its history, and an imagination to alter it to her needs. That is a key strength of this novel. There are also a variety of horror elements in here from delusions to "real" horrific scenes battling demons. Cosper has established a series that will be on my to be read list for years to come. I'm intrigued to know where it will go from here. All I know is that there's danger in store. It's hiding around every corner for Gabriella and her companions.
I still remember some of these scenes so vividly that I dream of them sometimes. If you had told me I would fall in love with a book about demons, I would have thought you were NUTS. They are pretty much the only supernatural creature I never had interest in before now. But Noree does it SO WELL.
I'm so invested in these characters and I just LOVE LOVE LOVE Gabby. Like seriously adore her and could read 1000000 books with her as the main character! All the characters are their own people and the inter-character-relationships were SPOT ON. I've never felt a book was more "real" before.
I also have to comment on the natural writing talent itself. If there's one thing Noree excels in, it's story telling. She really knows how to balance it all and deliver in spades. Character, pacing, plot, action, dialogue, emotion, I could go on and on.
I'm a book lover, yes. But it's not every day I feel the need to passionately RAVE about an author. I'm a fan. Like a fan-girling fan. It's embarrassing, but I don't care. I LOVED this book and I WANT MORE!
