Publisher's Summary

At 15, Chance Fortunato has seen more evil than most people ever will. Indentured by his father to the demon count Dulka, he's been taught dark magic and forced to do his infernal master's dirty work for eight years. But now Chance has figured out a way to defeat his master and free himself.

His new life with his mother and sister is far from easy, and freedom has its own perils. Normal life is hard enough, but even in a mundane-looking high school, there are paranormal threats from both sides of the mystical fence. 

When his new mentor is murdered, Chance knows he is the only one who can track the killer down. To bring his mentor's killer to justice, Chance will have to fight evil on its own terms and discover if that makes him a hero...or a monster.

A very good YA book.

This YA urban fantasy book follows a similar plot to many others. Another very very similar book I can point to is Sweet Blood of Mine. Doesn't fit in at first before being taken in by the goth crowd. !B and other football players have it out for him. Principle and football coach doesn't like him for roughing up QB. Other scenes play out in very similar ways. Of course the plot and characters are different but I can't help but notice the similarities. By comparing the two I would say that I prefer this book. I hope that the other books in the series are released and not locked behind the "Not Yet Avaliable" status for all eternity like it is for Book 3 of Renegade X. It's been 2 years drop book 3 already!

Worth a try

Great pace, interesting story, relatable main character. I will definitely wait for the remaining books to be produced.

Great plot; Senseless sexual assult/rape scenes

This book doesn't understand what genre/age-range it is trying to hit on. The characters in this book are in high school (aka 15 years old) and the general feel of the book is a Young Adult fantasy with some dark undertones to it, yet it has countless sexual assault scenes and even a rape scene on one of the characters. I honestly don't get where the author was trying to go with this book. It took way too dark of a turn for Young Adult books, yet it doesn't have the feel or the age-range of the characters for a reader in their 20s or older to really get into it. Especially since characters make decisions that only a teen could really understand (so you get pissed at all the terrible decisions they make).

I honestly just don't get where the author was going with this book. If he took out most of the sexual assault scenes and the rape scene then the book would be great for darker young adults. If he made all the characters in their 20s or 30s then it would be great for older adults since they could stomach it easier and for the adults that like darker books. Right now it basically just sounds like a dark child soft-core porno and i feel awkward even just as someone in my early 20s reading it lol.

Terrific story

I couldn’t put it down. Fantastic premise, brilliantly realized. A very entertaining performance. I can’t wait for the follow up.
