Synopsis: My entire name is Calliope Reaper-Jones, but you can call me Callie. Please! Like many a young woman before me, I've chosen to go out on my own in New York City, working my way up in the magazine world, living paycheck to paycheck, buying only the new shoes that I absolutely must have.
Of course, having a superhot boyfriend does make it all the more bearable. Even if he isn't entirely human. After all, I'm Death's Daughter, so I'm not one to criticize.
But once again, my efforts to lead a normal life have gone bye-bye, thanks to my older sister, Thalia. She's made a deal with the Devil himself - and all that's standing between him and a takeover of the Reaper family business (which would be très bad for mortals) is...me.
When I first found out, I wasn't too worried. I've already kicked Thalia's butt once. But I was wrong. She and the Devil have a secret weapon - someone very close to me, someone very dangerous.
This time, it is way personal...
Review: I enjoyed what I found to be the darkest volume in the Calliope Reaper-Jones series to date. Callie's life has turned upside down and now she needs to follow her own instincts because she's the only one who can save her family. Callie has to grow up a lot in a short amount of time, but I think she comes out better for it. Follow Callie as she endeavors to learn who is truly on her side and copes with the betrayals that the power struggle brings. I highly recommend this series and this book in particular!
