Good versus evil just got even more complicated.
Being half-witch/half-demon and dating Marcus, a gargoyle and demon enemy, is complicated enough for Lucy. She can almost tolerate Jude, her demon father, forcing her to undergo combat training. But when Marcus's long-lost family returns to Chicago, her world begins to crumble. Marcus's mother wants him to leave to join the gargoyle clan; his father wants him to help kill Jude. There's one major problem with this: if Jude dies, Lucy dies.
Marcus will do whatever it takes to save Lucy and her father. Meanwhile Lucy has her own plan and with the aid of a surprise newcomer, seeks help from the most unlikely--and dangerous--source.

I admittedly missed book 1 and picked up on that quite quickly in this edition, but it wasn't so much that I couldn't infer past happenings from main character musings. Lucy is a teenager juggling halfbreed status, a demon-changing best friend/would-be love interest, and a gargoyle boyfriend for whom demons are mortal enemies. It's quite the mix up and the story picks up with her demon father now in her life, the person out to kill her missing, and a new threat coming in both emotionally and physically. Overall it is a pleasant read, but feels very Twilight-esque. I recommend it for middle school/high school students and have referred my younger sister to it. Copy received in exchange for honest review.
