I love all things supernatural, especially when it throws in teenage angst and a protagonist who’s hellbent on redemption.
All hope abandon ye who read this book.
After ruling Hell for centuries, Satan’s daughter, Cecilia Harrow, escapes the confines of the underworld in search of safety and a normal life. She finds anything but when she enrolls in Cornelia High School, only to discover a hunt for an ancient artifact, a charming demon, and an enigmatic human.
When her new human life is threatened, she will discover how far she’ll go to save the person she loves, and keep her freedom. Loyalties, blood, and faith will be tested. Cecilia must make a choice: preserve her humanity or unleash the merciless Princess of Hell.
This book is so good! Cecilia has escaped from her father who just so happens to be Lucifer. To avoid going back into the fiery pits of hell and have to kill people for eternal life, she settles into a prestigious high school.
Finding another demon wasn’t on her list of things to do but Alexander seems to be different and not in a bad way.
Sebastian is the outcast of the school, he intrigues Cecilia and she intrigues him. Their relationship is so lovely to see and rather refreshed that its a guy who is quite shy and unsure. I also liked that Cecilia and Alexander’s relationship built up throughout the book and how she dealt with all those feelings.
The characters are well written, the plot is great and I really enjoyed the supernatural feel of it. Cecilia is a great character, full of redemption but not so perfect. Her old life of killing and torture is always calling her and she has to fight to keep it from taking over.
There’s an old curse, a few surprises and lots of dark brooding from all sides but it works so well!
