    Maggie and Lisa are doing Spring Break - if only so Maggie can get a newspaper article out of it.

    On the way there, they run over a dead cow in the middle of the road, which damages the car. The closest town isn't too far away, but it's a town in the middle of nowhere - and it takes some time to get the parts required.

    While they wait, they discover that something's not right in the town. Animals are dying...and not naturally. Legend surrounds the town of a creature in history that might be back.

    For Maggie and Lisa, fighting demons isn't new. They begin to investigate. However, not everyone takes kindly to their nosiness and not everyone is willing to talk. Things quickly get worse. Animals aren't the only ones getting hurt.

    It's time to take action, even if it means going against very important people in town. Can Maggie and Lisa survive another fight with demons?

    HIGHWAY TO HELL continues the fight of Maggie against demons, with her fabulous sidekick Lisa and her trusty white knight, Justin. The once-again solid friendship between Maggie and Lisa fills the story with tension and humor.

    This is a fabulous supernatural series that will leave readers wanting more.

    My favorite of the three

    Highway to Hell is the third installment of the Maggie Quinn: Girl vs. Evil books. Personally, it's my favorite of the three. It could be that it's set in South Texas and my home state is close to my heart. But actually, I think it's a combination of things which I'll get to here in a sec.

    It's Spring Break and Maggie and her best friend, Lisa, are headed to South Padre Island. Maggie's excuse is to do an exposé for her college newspaper. But on their midnight drive, Maggie and Lisa encounter a dead bovine in the road, causing them to wreck the Jeep. Maggie knows something is up right away, due to her Sight, and realizes there are bigger, badder forces at work here.

    They're rescued by one of the locals, Zeke, who is a young good ole boy and the grandson of the Matriarch of the County. As Maggie and Lisa dig deeper into the mystery of the dead cow, they realize they've stumbled upon a demon-infested town. El Chupacabra is terrorizing the locals and killing livestock. Now with the help of her Super Evil Genius best friend, Lisa, her paladin boyfriend, Justin, and his theological friend, Henry, Maggie sets out to solve the mystery and vanquish the demon. Go, Maggie!

    There's a lot for me to love about Highway To Hell. It has sharp wit, a kick-ass story and characters you love. Oh, and did I mention the awesome movie references? That's quite appealing to me because I'm a movie-nerd myself. And it does help the author refers to some of my favorite movies of all time (Star Wars and Indiana Jones, anyone?). I loved this YA Paranormal, which I think is some of the most unique storytelling I've seen in the genre. Maggie's narration (it's written in first person) is spot on. Her observations are intelligent and witty. I felt like I was in Dulcina watching the action unfold with her. If you're after a book with awesome characters who double as demon-slayers, you'll want to read Highway To Hell. And if you've missed the other books? Pick them up, okay? Check out Rosemary's website for more information.

    One of the Best

    Never ceasing to push the YA envelope, Highway to Hell is a must read for all YA lovers. It's quick and fun, but without being fluff -- you don't even need to read the two previous books (although it is advised).

    My favorite of the series, I'm still debating whether the ending is perfect or shake RCM and Random House Publishing until they promise to continue the series. Clement-Moore has said she hoped to let the reader imagine what happens next, so perhaps that's better than perfect.

    A Guilty Pleasure

    After casting a demon out of her best friend Maggie Quinn is ready for a break. Stuffing her first-aid kit and safety pack into her jeep, Maggie starts off to South Padre Island with her witch-crafted friend, Lisa. But as you may have guessed, Maggie isn't a normal college freshman. She's a psychic and her vibes are going on overload when they drive through a small Texas county, on the way to their destination. They soon find out that something unusual is going on there. Livestock are being found dead with deep gashes on their necks. It's unnatural, they say. But how can Maggie and Lisa help when there is a handsome cowboy, religious grandma, and mysterious chupacabra getting in the way?

    Highway to Hell was a guilty pleasure. The main topic of demons isn't exactly up my alley. In fact, it's far away from it. But when I started reading, I found that the characters were all-around likeable. It had a quick-moving storyline and unexpected turns that kept my attention the entire time. This book put other famous works to shame.

    Author Rosemary Clement-Moore has a brilliant talent that I have never seen demonstrated by any other writer this way before. I was fascinated at how much the scenes are described though I wished, at times, it would be more straightforward. The cover, sadly, I think may not bring the book justice because it doesn't appeal to most audiences. But, like many people say, don't judge a book by its cover, right?

    Contains:

    *brief strong language
    *sensuality
    *creepy little demons
