Lee F.'s Review
I flew through this book. It's cute and silly and fun, a charming beach read with a sassy, hilarious narrator. The story is an unconventional romance with connections between the characters that form some sort of shape I can't begin to describe. Or maybe just a lot of intersecting lines. Which is to say, it's about teenagers in a small town.
The thing that surprised me the most about this book was how light and cheerful it is despite being about demons. They aren't true demons, creatures of depravity and brimstone, but that's one of the terms used to describe them, and it seems more or less apt.
Laney's voice is incredible. I want a sequel! It did confuse me a little at the end, marring this epic tale of awesome with a lot of stuff crammed into a small space. The final confrontation just felt off somehow, like the lead-up didn't really prepare me for all the stuff that would happen. Regardless, it wrapped up well. The resolution left a lot hanging, suggesting a sequel may come without making it clear if that's true or not.
The ideal audience for this book is probably Young Adult. Anyone who enjoys a snarky narrator and isn't put off by teenage shenanigans will probably enjoy it. Buckle up for a fast-paced paranormal romp.
