Jael's been moving from town to town her whole life and when she was eight, she found out why: she's a half-breed. She's the child of a demon mother and a human father. While she's never met her demoness mother, the demon that tried to attack her in the playground convinces her that what her father tells her is true.
Now, at 16, Jael's father gives her a necklace left to her by her mother and soon everything changes. With the help of her demon uncle and a skater who may become more than a friend, Jael must learn to control her powers and believe in her abilities to fight the demon that killed her mother.
Final thoughts: Meh. There were some good ideas, but the author just couldn't seem to pull it all together. It was a disappointment. I found myself repeatedly turning the Kindle off (ARC provided by NetGalley), and leaving it off for days at a time. There were a few decent moments, but not enough to recommend the book as a whole. The religious aspect was also clever, but I've seen it before, though not often.
