For seventeen-year-old Aurora Lahey, survival is a lifestyle.
Aurora has the crappiest superpower on the planet. And it’s just unleashed a hit squad from hell. Demons are on the hunt, salivating to carve her carcass into confetti. ´
The Hex Boys—mysterious, hunky, and notorious for their trails of destruction—have the answers Aurora needs to survive. But their overload of deadly secrets and suspicious motives makes trusting them a potentially fatal move.
The battle to save her family, herself, and stop demonic domination may cost Aurora everything worth living for, and force her to reveal her own dark secrets. But no worries. She needs the Hex Boys to pull this off, and, chances are, teaming up with these guys will get her killed anyway.
This book follows a girl named Aurora who is the mysterious Divinicus Nex and because of this she is on the hades hit list. After moving to a new town she meets a group of sexy guys that always turn up just at the right time when she is in trouble. It just so happens that these guys aren’t your normal group of teen boys. They are demon hunters and their looking for the Divinicus Nex. Aurora and the gang quickly become friends as much as they try to push her away for her safety. But the closer they get the more Aurora has trouble keeping her identity a secret because Aurora has powers and she can’t control them. And worse yet, the Divinicus Nex always gets locked away from the world ‘for their safety’ because they are the only weapon in the war against demons that could help them win.
I got hooked on this book from the very first page. Anyone that knows me knows that I am obsessed with books about demons and the paranormal, so this book quickly became one of my favourite books of all time. Add in a group of hot demons hunters and it just made my number 1.I loved the writing style and the snide remarks that Aurora made were so hilarious and made the book so freaking enjoyable. The guys always fighting over her was at times annoying but I think it needed it and added to the story. I was hooked on this book so much I read it (404 pages) in 5 hours which is my new personal best time! And can we talk about the cover please? I love love love it! Some book covers have nothing to do with the story at all which really annoys me, but this one fits in with the story perfectly, which made me love it even more. I really wish I loved in America right now because if I want to buy Demons at Deadnight and its sequels in physical copies its going to cost $11. I know what what your thinking, thats a freaking bargin why are you complaining?? Well I will tell you why. Add $30 shipping and then convert it to Australian dollars and its so expensive because you can only buy it from amazon. *Sigh* but of course I will buy them because I loved the first book and I told myself that I couldn’t finish the series unless I buy them in physical copies and I have to know what happens next! #aussieproblems
“I launched into a graceful ninja-like front roll, then stood my ground to face the monstrous heathen, fearless in my determination to vanquish the deadly foe.
Nah, just kidding. I bolted, discretion being the better part of not getting dead.”
“I reached for something to break my fall. The ground obliged.”
“We are killers,” Matthias said.
“Not girls. We don’t kill girls.”
“She’s no girl.”
“What? Of course she’s a girl.”
“Want me to check?”
“Shut up, Blake,” the rest of them chorused.”
“The demons diverted its sights from me and swooped down on the yappy mutt.
Dogs aren’t my thing.
I hate dogs. And if this one was dumb enough to sacrifice itself for me, hallelujah. I kept running.
After I reversed course.
“It would probably strip my flesh while giving me vocabulary lessons. I’d be dead but smarter. How’s that for glass half full?”
