Overview

As if high school wasn't hard enough.

Lucinda Dent never planned to call demons. She wasn’t stupid, after all. She’d seen what the addiction had done to her mother. But her mother has been gone for ten years, sucked into hell by a demon, and all Lucinda has left is her grandmother and the house she grew up in. Who could blame her for using the only thing her mother gave her, a talent for demon calling, to save them?

Lucinda teams up with an old friend and together they set up business, calling demons. But soon things go terribly wrong.

Demons are loose in Caldera High, and not only is Lucinda responsible, she just might be in love with one of them. Can love conquer all or is Lucinda about to lose everything--her home, her new love, and her soul?

    Great

    The scary parts were scary, so much so that i had to read with lights on! Darker than most teen books in the horror and sexual aspect. Over all great read

    Loved this book!

    Demon High was a great read. The language and sexual situations were a bit saltier than in many other young adults I've read but that seemed in keeping with the writer's gritty style. I really liked the main character. She lived up to her mistakes even when she knew it would cost her. Something often missing in YA books. The only thing I did not care for was the abrupt ending and the fact that it was clearly a set up for a sequel, otherwise great read.

    Lucinda Dent can call demons, just like her mother could. But with it, one can also become addicted to the power it takes to call them. Her mother has been gone for ten years, sucked into hell by a demon, and all Lucinda has left is her grandmother and the house she grew up in.

    Lucinda teams up with an old friend and together they set up business, calling demons. But soon things go terribly wrong. Demons are loose in Caldera High, and not only is Lucinda responsible, she just might be in love with one of them. Can love conquer all or is Lucinda about to lose everything—her home, her new love, and her soul?

    Holy s***, where’s the sequel?!

    I have to admit it was the 1st edition cover that initially drew me to the book as I am a cover artist second to being a writer. The photo interested me, but at the same time I thought: “Man this needs a new cover design and better font.” Lol.

    Beyond the cover, the story is more interesting then I thought it would be. I’ve read other urban fantasies that were more about demons than the other supernatural creatures that one usually finds cluttered in such books. But this was a nice find. I paid my $.99 cents for the e-book and disappeared in my room to read. By the time I finished reading and looked over at the clock it was 4:30AM! I hadn’t even noticed the time slipping by.

    Its got a nice bit of dark grit and shows that demons are not to be trifled with or trusted, despite their pretty faces. Truly a great read. Now…I just don’t want to have to wait for a sequel!

    No context for supernatural world.

    This book opens with the lead female character getting a notice that the bank is foreclosing on her grandmother's house. We are given no indication of the lead character's age, which makes it difficult to determine whether her reactions and responses are appropriate. Then the author just drops in the fact that for generations, her family has been "calling demons", but the author fails to tell the reader what that means. Note to authors who are writing supernatural or paranormal fiction - explain the parameters of your paranormal paradigm. Here, the sample fails to explain the paranormal aspects that are the subject of the book, or how the lead female feels about it. There isn't much depth there to give us any idea what to expect. If the rest of the book is the same, this book will be no bueno. Not spending my dough on it.

    YA horror done right

    We all know the scenario: character (in this case, a teenaged girl) decides to summon a demon: disaster ensues. The adventure lies in how this demon-summoning-disaster tale is different from all other demon-summoning-disaster tales, and Devoti delivers in wonderful and unexpected ways. From the very first, she weaves in details that add depth: for example, our heroine's mother was also a demon-caller but got addicted to it; much of adolescence is about risk, so the lure and danger of demon-calling itself, apart from how treacherous and vile the demons themselves are, becomes a recurrent theme on many levels. Devoti's characters are no cardboard cut-outs, neither the humans nor the demons. Some of them grow, often painfully, and others fall into the "more will be revealed" category. All in all, the sensitivity and thoughtfulness, plus more than a few fascinating twists, make this a satisfying reading experience for adults as well as teens.
