Xoe never thought she’d be the type of girl to contemplate murder. Of course, she never thought she’d be dealing with werewolves on top of her own strange, budding powers. She’d also never considered the possibility of her long lost father being a demon. Everything comes crashing down at once when her best friend’s life is put in peril, and Xoe will do whatever it takes to save her. On top of it all, there’s Jason. He might be tall and handsome, but she doesn’t trust him as far as she can throw him. Given that he’s a vampire, she’ll have to be able to catch him first.
I picked this book up because I was looking for a free YA book on iBook for a long car trip. This book is very enjoyable and easy to read. But once I finished it and thought about it, it actually wasn't that good. Don't get me wrong, I love Xoe, she is great character. But all the characters expect her just were flat and undeveloped. Dan, I felt wasn't a good villain and annoyed me at times. Xoe's friends weren't really that memorable. Another thing that we needed more of was information on the magic world. I'm sure they will explain in the second book but still, the world building wasn't there. Also I felt the supernatural creatures weren't inventive (expect the demons). Werewolves, vampires, and etc. were the classic form, not really creative. I recommend this book for a quick read but it wasn't memorable.

AMAZING BOOK!! I love the conflict and how Xoe's life completely changed. I hope her, Lucy, Allison, Max, and Jason all have another awesome adventure. I can't wait to read the second book!! 💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙😍😍😍😍😍😍
Needs some editing
The tense kept switching from present to past, it was really aggravating. Also, Xoe was a little flat in her personality. Everything was all "oh-hum." My dad left when I was a baby, I don't like the way I look, I like trees, I don't like school. Everything was presented with the same blah attitude. I couldn't even get past the first chapter. Between the tense being messed up and Xoe's flat way of telling, not describing, everything the story was dead for me before it even began. However, if you enjoy teen stories where the teen is all depressing than this is the book for you.
