Blurb:

To save the lives of her friends, Rachel did the unthinkable: she willingly trafficked in forbidden demon magic. And now her sins are coming home to haunt her.

As Rachel searches for the truth behind a terrifying murder, an even greater menace threatens, for the demon Algaliarept will stop at nothing to claim her, and the discovery of a shocking family secret throws Rachel’s entire life into question. If she is ever to live free, Rachel must first walk willingly into the demonic ever-after in search of long-lost ancient knowledge.

But when you dance with demons, you lay your soul on the line…and there are some lines that should never be crossed.

My Review:

This book is romance free (mostly) as Rachel struggles with her anger at the tragic events in the previous book. She has matured dramatically and thinks before she acts now. Rachel discovers some interesting facts about her family, and it gives some insight into why she is the way that she is. There is more of the demon world in this book, and Al is a tremendous character in this instalment.

I love the introduction of Bis, a teenaged gargoyle who takes up residence in The church. I love gargoyles, and Bis is hilarious. The Ivy situation has levelled somewhat in this book, and she is not as annoying as usual. I’m not sure how I feel about Trent. He’s the type of character that you don’t know whether he is the villain or the hero.

This is a great series, and if you haven’t given it a go, I recommend looking it up.
