I’ve been told I was as useless as a weed most of my life. Mainly by my worthless father.
But I’d suffer anything to give my kid sister a better life—the minute I turn eighteen, I’m getting us the hell out of here. And some hot stranger telling me I am the key to stopping a war between Heaven and Hell isn’t going to change that.
Let the world crumble and burn, for all I care.
Draven is relentless, though. And very much a liar. Every time his sexy lips are moving, I can see it—in the dip of his head, the grit of his jaw—even if my heart begs me to ignore the signs.
So what does he want?
I need to figure it out fast, because now everyone is gunning for me. And damn if I don’t want to show them what happens when you let weeds thrive in the cracks of the pavement…
We can grow powerful enough to shatter the whole foundation.
Book Review: First, I want to say that this book is amazing. I knew instantly that I was going to like this book as there hasn’t been many YA Urban Fantasies coming out in awhile.
I really do think Molly E. Lee did a great job with her creating both her world and her characters. She really made it shine on the page. That’s what really drew me was the world being set in Chicago and getting see this new twists on demons, as well as other creatures and just hell itself. I think that’s one of the great things about this book is that it feels different compared to other books I have read within this genre.
The characters have been done really well. Harley is a great female character that was strong that I could relate to with having anxiety and dealing with almost the same things. Not only that, but she is the type of female character that I have been looking for. I have been looking for a female character that has flaws, but is also strong at the same time and continues to grow. Reading her story made me want to grow as a person. I will also mention that there wasn’t one side character that I felt like I wasn’t interested in. Also I enjoyed the romance in this book, as well as the love interest.
The writing in this book is fantastic. The author’s did a great job making scenes and characters come off the page. It really made the book even more enjoyable for me.
Now onto the dark themes because there are some. I still do think that this is a great book and if you are wanting a great YA Urban Fantasy book, then this would be a perfect book. Just know that there are some dark themes and that it might be triggering. Just keep this on your radar if you are still interested in reading the book.
The rating I would give this book is 4.5 out of 5 stars. This was a really great book with some really fast pacing, but at times it felt like things were a bit too fast at times and there wasn’t enough time to let things sink in.
If you are a fan of Cassandra Clare and are looking for a new YA Urban Fantasy, then this would be a perfect book for you.
