Kira thought she was leaving her demons behind when she
left for college. She quickly discovers demons are everywhere,
and can be good or evil. Not only are they real, but they’re
protecting her; that is, except for the ones who want her dead.
Kira's parents want to reveal things about who she is, but a
strange phenomenon prevents them from explaining. Before
they can try again, her mother and brother die and her father
disappears. Afterward, Kira finds a mysterious book in her
parents‘ belongings. Although the book confuses her,
it comforts her too. She's sure it holds the answers she seeks.
One of Kira’s new friends, Lowell Hew, is also an earth demon
named Ulric the Wolf Thief. Lowell tries to help Kira solve the
mysteries involving the book, her parents, and the elements they
wanted her to know. Although Lowell has a crush on Kira,
he’s not looking for a relationship, or so he keeps telling himself.
Meanwhile, Lowell introduces Kira to his best friend, Pyre, a fire
demon with a fiery temperament and a troubled past. Pyre closed
off his heart years ago, while deep inside he yearned to belong. For
Pyre, learning to love again comes with tremendous risk, especially when
the girl he loves is human, and his best friend has thoughts of his own.
Things go well until an eerie presence threatens Kira and her
new friends, and they can only speculate as to who it may be.
While her friends protect her and try to uncover the enemy’s identity,
Kira must adjust to the challenges of being human with demon friends.
Will she bask in the warmth, or be consumed by the flames of

Kira is an ordinary girl going off to college. There she meets Lowell and his friend Pyre. She doesn't know at first that they are demons. While attending the college, someone starts to threaten her life. Great story.
Sweet and fiery. The perfect combination of entertainment and romance. I wasn’t expecting to fall in love with the characters and their story. I’m not a huge fan of love at first sight books but I couldn’t help but be captivated by the characters and their story. I highly recommend this story to ya paranormal romance lovers who are looking for strong badass female leads and sexy bad boys with hearts of gold! I voluntarily reviewed an arc from the author.
I enjoyed this story. There are demons, friendships, romance, and more. This is a well-paced story with twists and turns that keep you wondering what will happen next. I love Kira because I found her to be strong and she knows what she wants. I think this is a wonderful start to what will be a great series with wonderful characters. I'm sure we'll be learning more as the series goes on. I find Alex E Carey's writing to be clear and she certainly knows how to write a good story. So far, I'm enjoying this series and look forward to reading more.
Love the characters draws you right in and hard to put down! Great read
