Being the daughter to the Devil has its draw backs, just ask seventeen-year-old Desdemona Starr, aka Dessi, who attends the Morning Star Institute, a private school where teenage Hellions, paranormals like Dessi, can learn and practice their Hell-given crafts. There Dessi’s life takes a dramatic turn towards chaos when she learns she’s part of a prophecy foretelling that she will one day tip the scale of Light or Dark, ultimately creating a war between Heaven and Hell.

Dessi finds herself at the top of the hit list when soul-sucking demons attack the institute in an attempt to end the prophecy. Thankfully, Dessi has two of the strongest teenage shape-shifting-Hellhound-boys on her side. Not to mention finding herself within a love triangle can only complicate matters. Until she chooses her path and the prophecy ends, her internal war between Light and Dark is not over. Danger lurks around the corner with the help of her friends, she’ll be ready!

Malicious is the first of a planned series: In each book, more about the prophecy she’s a part of is revealed. As Dessi faces the trials that come with being the Devil’s daughter, she will unknowingly shape her own destiny, and ultimately tip the scale of Light or Dark for good. The series focuses on the deeper meaning of a girl, who against all odds, breaks free from her father’s influence and carves her own path to goodness.

Excellent! Great story by a promising new author! Lots of action, new perspective on paranormal characters, new concept- the Devil's daughter caught between two worlds of good and evil; and what a decision she must make- good-evil forever, Hellhound-Angel for a boyfriend, all while coping with unexpected changes within herself! Definitely a page-turner! Elements of suspense, blood and gore evident but not over the top descriptive, romance- oh yeah! And just the right touches of it, completely appropriate for the characters' ages. I'm looking forward to the next book in the Morning Star Institute Series! Way to go for your first novel Ms. Hunter!

I am excited to finish this book and can't wait for the next book. Great job!!

This is a great book by a first time author. The characters are solid and believable. It is fun to get to know them. The environment Alissa creates is different and fresh. There is twists and turns that keep you interested till the end. I am really looking forward to the next book in this series.

Great first book by a new author! Characters have just enough teenage angst without being too "twilight-ish". Can't wait to read the rest of the series.

The plot sounds like the book Become by Ali Cross. Daughter of the devil, nickname Desi, boyfriend is an Angel, and oh yeah she has to decide if she will embrace the light or darkness within her and whatever choice she makes will tip the scales in the war against good and bad. I think it is a little weird that two books published 2 years apart have so much in common.
