It's never too late to choose . . . Sixteen-year old Desolation Black wants nothing more than to stay in Hell where it’s cold and lonely and totally predictable. Instead, she’s sent back to Earth where she must face the evil she despises and the good she always feared. When Desi is forced to embrace her inner demon, she assumes her choice has been made—that she has no hope of being anything other than what her father, Lucifer, has created her to be. What she doesn’t count on, is finding a reason to change—something she’s never had before—a friend.
Like I've said, I am a lover of all books. I was a little apprehensive to read this though because I didn't figure I would like a story about the daughter of Satan! I was pleasantly surprised that I was wrong though.
Ali Cross mixes in Christianity and a little Norse mythology into this book which can make things a little confusing. She does do a wonderful job at explaining each subject and character and their role in the hierarchy of the world. So while you may have to re read passages, you will come to understand the story line.
Like I said I thought a story about Satan's daughter was going to be dark, dark, dark. While most of this book is dark, we realize that Desi isn't. I really fell in love with her because I sympathized with her struggle of trying to figure out who she really is.
I would recommend this book wholeheartedly. I really enjoyed it and it took me two days to read it. I am really looking forward to reading the sequel!
