This is another great paranormal thriller but this time the key characters are teenagers in a private school, the Morning Star Institute. Now whilst this school is a private one, it isn’t your usual education establishment as it is a school where Hellions attend to hone their skills! The leading young lady in this story is Desdemona Starr (aka Dessi), the daughter of the Devil and most of the young men attending with her are Hell hounds in training.

The story has the central theme of good v evil,

Excellent first novel by a promising young author! Great original concept, fast paced plot, interesting characters who will keep you guessing if they're good or bad, which side of good and evil they are on! Characters are well developed, with appropriate actions and language for their age group. Just the right element of suspense and romance; exciting battles with minimal descriptiveness of blood and gore- just my type because I don't like horror-type gore. Plenty of action, good representation ...more

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have to admit that I haven't read many young adult paranormal books but I was very pleased that I got the chance to read this one. I was even more surprised to learn that this was a also a debut novel for Alissa T. Hunter as in no way would you imagine it to be a debut novel.

I loved how the writing in the book flowed and and the imagery it gives. As this is set in a world of hellions, demons and angels it's important to have

Loved the "Hell" World in which this was written! Definitely unique in it's genre right now. New author Alissa T. Hunter is a mesmerizing storyteller and has a thrilling way of engaging readers and keeping them on their toes. The characters are relatable and intriguing. Can't wait to read the next book; way to go Alissa!!!

Couldn't put it down. Desi and Ace kept me on my toes throughout the whole book. Add Blake and Abe and it makes a great group of characters. Lain was a hoot and the writing was great. Can't wait for the next installment.

The book had some okay parts but overall I was pretty bored with it. I'm 89% of the way through and I'm not gonna even bother trying to finish it.
I found myself trying to read faster in hopes to get to more exciting parts of the book. But they never really came. And when something exciting did happen, I wasn't fully immersed into the story (though not for lack of trying), so the "exciting" event felt more like I was reading about it from a secondhand report of someone who had been there...

I didn't even mean to start reading this until later. But I got caught on the first few pages and it pulled me in. The ending is a cliffhanger, but it feels like the best way the author could've extended the storyline. I loved this book and I'm excited to read the second one!
