Jael’s mother was a demon, making her half human, half demon…or how her mother liked to say: all demon and all human. Her mother died when she was a baby, so it’s been only her and her dad for a long time. Only the two of them, moving from place to place every year or two. Why? Because a powerful “Duke from Hell” has been after her her whole life. He thinks half breeds are an abomination, which is why he is set on destroying Jael. But I just think he’s afraid of her ;)
But everything changes on her sixteenth birthday. She receives a necklace from her dead mother, she gets super cool powers and an uncle she never knew about…on her mother’s side…soooo yes, he is a demon.
She convinces her father not move after a close call. She has decided that there will be no more running. She wants to take on this demon once and for all. With the support of a potential boyfriend, Rob ;)
I had a very difficult time rating this. It’s one of the in-between books…it’s not one of you favorites, but it wasn’t so horrible that you hate it. It was just okay. I have to admit, it was very unique and I have not read anything like it, so that’s a good thing. But I didn’t suck me in and make me get lost in the story. And even though it was good, I didn’t have a hard time putting it down…which is probably why it took me so long to read it, lol.
I really liked the characters: Jael’s uncle, Rob…her dad on the other hand…I felt like he was just a guardian, like he didn’t care for Jael (though I know he really did), but he didn’t show any affection towards her. But I liked how he changed throughout the story. If you look at the beginning of the book and at the end, it’s like you’re looking at two completely different people!
As I said, overall, it was a pretty good read :)
