I was given a copy by the author in return of my honest review.
I loved this book. It has so many twists and turns that you would be hooked throughout the novel. Pembroke has done an amazing job with her characters and you do relate to Katie on so many levels.
it starts with Katie and Wes. Katie is crazy about Wes, but he is toying with her feelings time and time again, rejecting her every time she thinks something is going to happen. For sure a girl will get fed up with this and Katie did when Josh came into the picture.
Now Josh is the ultimate bad boy, a demon eating souls.
He is amazingly sweet on Katie and although she knows Josh is bad news, she really wants him too.
Wes don’t like it one bit, and it turns out that Wes is Katie’s protector, but chooses to do this from a distance.
Katie needs to choose, good or evil and believe me it’s not as easy as you would think.
I really loved this novel. I couldn’t put it down and I feel sorry for Katie that has to choose between the good guy, Wes, or evil bad boy Josh. I liked both of them, Josh a bit more, and it’s for me hard to choose.
I would recommend this for everyone that wants to read a fast entertaining novel about good and evil. I hope there will be a sequel.
Good luck Pembroke and job well done. I can understand now why you are a finalist in the Dante Roseetti Awards.
I wish you all the luck with that.
