"Jael has always felt like a freak. She’s never kissed a boy, she never knew her mom, and her dad’s always been superstrict—but that’s probably because her mom was a demon, which makes Jael half demon and most definitely not a normal sophomore girl. On her sixteenth birthday, a mysterious present unlocks her family’s dangerous history and Jael’s untapped potential. What was merely an embarrassing secret before becomes a terrifying reality. Jael must learn to master her demon side in order to take on a vindictive Duke of Hell while also dealing with a twisted priest, best-friend drama, and a spacey blond skater boy who may have hidden depths.
Author Jon Skovron takes on the dark side of human nature with his signature funny, heartfelt prose."

I felt this novel was slow pace throughout the storyline. I did enjoy the flashbacks into Jael’s past. Learning about her mother more. Watching her come to terms with who she is and what she had to do to keep the world and her family and friends safe.
Jael has felt a part of her missing her whole life. It isn’t until her sixteenth birthday that she learns the truth of who and what she is. Jael is a half-breed, a half mortal and half demon. Her mother died, to save Jael and her father. Upon learning the truth she is faced with having to deal with the evil demon .
Jael takes on Hell and wins. Well for now anyways! *Got from Netgalley*
Hope you enjoyed my review, Happy Reading! Ashley
