Forced to go on the run, she hurtles from one threat to another, revealing a tapestry of terror woven into the very fabric of her life. Her only chance rests with her fellow travellers, who are not at all what they appear to be…
Onto the book itself: What I particularly appreciated was the lack of a long drawn out introduction. Although I am a fan of description, I felt as though the story didn't need too much detail before getting to grips with Amber's story - we get it along the way. Most people get a party for for their sixteenth birthday, but Amber gets a shock. She discovers that she's actually a demon and her parents want to EAT HER! The narrative follows Amber as she goes on the run with her protector Milo.
I liked Amber and definitely found her entertaining. I laughed at her 'shifting' issues. Milo reminded me of a certain Skulduggery and I'd like to see more of him. I wasn't the biggest fan of Glen. I initially found him annoying and he often confused me. I did soften towards him at times but he didn't completely win me over. Amber's parents were far more entertaining than I had expected.
There is a lot of action, fighting and dark humour. Certain parts may be a bit of a shock for younger readers but I liked the fights and slightly grim topics.
