In the world of Daimons, Aya would rather die in the deadly arena fights sponsored by The City than marry and reveal her dangerous secret. Kaleb would rather die in the arena than go back to his life living on the streets of The City. Mallory--living in the human world--knows only that The City is a dangerous place and that Daimons are dangerous monsters.
Sound melodramatic and intriguing? It is--and it gets better. Aya has to choose between revealing her secret and killing the man she loves. Kaleb is ordered to enter the human world and kill Mallory. Mallory learns an alarming secret about her own background. Violence, romance, and a strange new world are hammered together to make a perfect setting for the story, but the real beauty of this book is the headlong crash of the characters' conflicting desires. If Aya gets what she so desperately needs, how will Kaleb win his own victory? And if Kaleb does what he has to in order to survive, Mallory will die.
Any teen who loves dark fantasy will eat this one up.
