I was lucky enough to get this book from Kindle Scout after months of voting, and I have to say, it’s a great book. I read until 3am and those who know me know I have an early morning paper route. I’m supposed to get up at 3am. Oops. I love Janette Rallison’s books. I’ve stayed up just as late reading My Fair Godmother and the Slayers books by her pseudonym CJ Hill.
The story is about Adelle who hears demons. She hears all the negative thoughts the demons are telling people to keep them depressed and unhappy. After moving twice Adelle is determined to lay low and get through her senior year without anyone knowing her secret. She meets Levi and hears the demons say he’s going to die. She has to save him, not just because he’s gorgeous with blonde hair and beautiful blue eyes and the quarterback, but because he’s nice to her. When his friends are in a car wreck and he isn’t he wants to know how she knew they’d wreck. She reveals her secret and at first, Adelle is sure that once people know the truth about her they will ridicule her like before. But Levi is different and even though he doesn’t believe her for one minute, he seems to still like her. Adelle hears the demons talk about a murder and she has to do something about it, even if she loses everything.
I have to admit, I was surprised by the book. I’d heard from a few of my agent friends that angels and demons were on the outs (along with vampires, but I hear they’re coming back so who knows). I loved her idea of demons and just how dangerous they can be. And how we don’t always realize they’re there. The book had an interesting take, one that I hadn’t heard of before. Which is par for the course far Ms. Rallison. Read her Fair Godmother series and her take on fairytales. You won’t be disappointed.
Janette Rallison is by far my favorite author because everything I’ve read so far I’ve loved. Waiting for Slayers 3, hint hint. Her writing is entertaining with humor and lots of butterflies and heart-pounding romance. I adore her characters, they’re smart, witty and strong females that don’t need a prince to save them.
