Synopsis:
After accidentally stealing the life force of a dying demon, Allay became the only human-demon hybrid in existence. Demons feed on human emotions, so Allay decided the safest way to satisfy this need – and still retain some semblance of her humanity – was to open a bar. Here she can drink from, and ease, her patrons’ pain, which has helped her to stay under the demon radar…until now.

When Allay is attacked and nearly killed by another demon, a human comes to her rescue. Theo Ram is tall, handsome, and mortal – and Allay feels a connection to him she didn’t think she’d ever know. But that nod is tested when the demon community in New York begins to rise up, and two opposing clans fight for power. Now Allay is caught in the middle, and she must decide where her loyalties lie…

Review: Allay never wanted to be a demon, but when she absorbs the life force of the demon Plea accidentally, she has no choice. She's never really accepted who she's become and what she has to do to survive. But when her best friend, Shock, and herself are attacked by other demons, she must stand up and do what it takes to ensure their futures. Allay is rescued by Theo Ram, a human who she is attracted to like no other being before. Now she's got to discover who her true friends and deadly enemies really are.

This is the first book in a news series by the author and it's fresh and exciting!! I couldn't put it down and was intrigued by the original world the author has created. Demons feed on human emotions/energy, akin to psychic vampires. Demon is just a term that they use for themselves and has nothing really to do with Heaven or Hell. Allay is no push over (I think she's pretty kick-ass), but she prefers to stay in the background of things, but what she doesn't know can truly harm her and her (few) friends. I loved, loved, loved this book and am looking forward to what is in store next for Allay.
