When Nina discovers that Mellie is keeping a secret that threatens their very existence, she'll do anything to protect her. Because in New Temperance, sins are prosecuted as crimes by the brutal Church and its army of black-robed exorcists. And Mellie's sin has put her in serious trouble.
To keep them both alive, Nina will need to trust Finn, a fugitive with deep green eyes who has already saved her life once and who might just be an exorcist. But what kind of exorcist wears a hoodie?
Wanted by the Church and hunted by dark forces, Nina knows she can't survive on her own. She needs Finn and his group of rogue friends just as much as they need her.
OUR THOUGHTS: A book ingrained in dark secrets, soul-sucking demons, a creepy town run by a lunatic church, yep, we're so in! It's quite interesting that the main character--Nina Kane--has an immortal soul but can't live out an immortal life thanks to the cray cray demons trying to get to it. And why would money matter in a town where demons are hunting for souls?? And what big no no did Mellie commit that would have the church hunting for her?? And is the church involved somehow in how the demons got through to take people's souls?? We've already decided we really like Finn! I mean he has green eyes, he helps out girls in distress, and he kicks some demon butt, what's not to like already? ;) Not sure where this cray cray plot line will go but we're definitely looking forward to discovering it when the book comes out!
