Overview

Lucinda Dent never planned to call demons. She wasn't stupid, after all. She saw what the addiction did 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?

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

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.

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.

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!
