Incredible – what a great totally enthralling ya novel, set in a dystopian world recovering after wars with demons. The Church has taken power, desperate to protect the survivors from the souls-consuming demons. In New Temperance lives sixteen year old Nina Kane and her fifteen year old sister, Mellie and their mother who seems to not care about them at all. Determined to keep Mellie safe, scraping together food, money and clothing for them both, Nina just needs two more years before she can earn and be Mellie’s legal guardian. They have, however, to survive that long first. Demons and vicious degenerates aren’t their only problems, Mellie has committed a sin, a sin that puts her life in danger from the brutal Church and its laws. Can they escape? Who can they trust? How many must die and who will survive?

I’ve been so lucky recently to read some stupendously different, riveting stories and this is one of the best. Whilst targeted for teens and young adults, this is a book that will appeal to adults (like me) too. The characters are complex, their talents and aptitudes definitely different and the scenarios cited are unique and written in a manner that makes them a believable alternative world. Fast paced, this is an engaging novel, one you want to keep reading and not put down. I have no hesitation in highly recommending it – and I want to read the sequel asap, please!

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too,
for letting me read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
