The Demon in Me
Michelle Rowen has started a new series featuring Eden Riley and Darrak, a demon. Darrak was cursed by a witch and now must possess human bodies to maintain a presence. The series begins with The Demon in me followed by Something wicked. Eden Riley is a low-level psychic and is trying to assist the police in a serial murderer apprehension. When the apprehension goes wrong, the demon’s host body is killed, and Darrak, manifesting as smoke, invades Eden. They must learn how to share the body while attempting to break the curse of possession. Darrak, after living all these years among humans, has acquired some nasty habits, nasty habits to a demon whose main aim is evil. He cares about Eden. The books are suspenseful and intriguing in their description of the creation of Heaven and Hell and who has dominion where and why. A fast-paced read for anyone whose mind can stretch to believe in things seen and unseen. The next book is advertised as That old black magic with no street date as yet.


From Divya, Teen Book Reviewer
author: Vail, Rachel
 “Gorgeous” by Rachel Vail is a great read for any girl above the age of 10. This book is about Allison Avery, the 14-year-old middle sister in between two beautiful, perfect girls. Being always be called “interesting-looking” compared to her brainy older sister Quinn and her popular younger sister Pheobe, she always feels as if that there is nothing that sets her apart from everyone else. So when the devil comes to her one night and offers to turn her gorgeous in the eyes of seven people, she jumps at the chance. But instead of her soul. the devil wants something else: her cell phone. Soon after, Allison suddenly becomes popular with a new best friend and the boy that she has a crush suddenly is chasing after her. And like any other family, there are many issues with money challenging the Averys. All the while, Allison runs off with her new friend Roxie, a model, to New York City for an audition for a teen magazine. With all this  going on, Allison doesn’t know what to do or who is actually her friend or is just doing it because she is suddenly
gorgeous. I would give this book 8 out of 10 stars because it shows that sometimes family and friends are more important than looking amazing. I look forward to reading “Lucky,” another book set in the same family.
