Jael is a half demon, half human and due to her upbringing doesn't have a lot of foundation to hold on to. Her father has moved her around since she was little. She doesn't remember her mother. And her father will tell her nothing. Until her sixteenth birthday when her father reveals a necklace, a gift from her mother. Jael immediately starts make decisions for herself - good or bad. She meets her uncle, also demon and other freakishly crazy people who she has to figure out what their intentions are. Jael must try to find her true self, while battling the demons of hell.

A great story of a girl who is completely lost and while her father feels he is protecting her, his secrets only make it harder for Jael. GIRLS ROCK!! I was thrilled to see this character, Jael, rise above all the things being thrown at her from day one and make her own decisions, which made those around her rise to her level. Not always were they good decisions, but she made them regardless. I like that. A great book for a girl who needs a little swift kick in the butt.

Summary -

Jael has always felt like a freak. She’s never kissed a boy, she never knew her mom, and her dad’s always been superstrict—but that’s probably because her mom was a demon, which makes Jael half demon and most definitely not a normal sophomore girl. On her sixteenth birthday, a mysterious present unlocks her family’s dangerous history and Jael’s untapped potential. What was merely an embarrassing secret before becomes a terrifying reality. Jael must learn to master her demon side in order to take on a vindictive Duke of Hell while also dealing with a twisted priest, best-friend drama, and a spacey blond skater boy who may have hidden depths.

Author Jon Skovron takes on the dark side of human nature with his signature funny, heartfelt prose.
