Summary From Goodreads:
One spark will rise.

Nina Kane was born to be an exorcist. And since uncovering the horrifying truth—that the war against demons is far from over—seventeen-year-old Nina and her pregnant younger sister, Mellie, have been on the run, incinerating the remains of the demon horde as they go.

In the badlands, Nina, Mellie, and Finn, the fugitive and rogue exorcist who saved her life, find allies in a group of freedom fighters. They also face a new threat: Pandemonia, a city full of demons. But this fresh new hell is the least of Nina’s worries. The well of souls ran dry more than a century ago, drained by the demons secretly living among humans, and without a donor soul, Mellie’s child will die within hours of its birth.

Nina isn’t about to let that happen…even if it means she has to make the ultimate sacrifice.

My Review:

Oh. My. Gosh. I think my brain may have exploded while reading this book. So many things happened. So. Many. Things.

I said in my review for The Stars Never Rise that I had my suspicions about how things were going to go down, and I'm glad to say that I was wrong for the most part. I've never been so happy to have been wrong about something actually.

This book seemed a little more graphic than the last one... Either that or I was just so in love with The Stars Never Rise that I just didn't notice it.

I didn't know that this was a duology until after I finished reading the second book. But when I did find out, I was super upset. Like, throw the book against the wall upset. {No, I did not throw my book against the wall, but I wanted to.} Sure a lot of things wrapped themselves up quite nicely, but there were some others that I'd have liked to see answered. I wish that there had been an epilogue where it tells you where the gang is now, and how Nina's little nephew is, and how things are going since the big ol' revelation about Nina and some of the others... I don't know, the end of this book made me want to cry. I wanted more of Nina and Finn. Oh well, you win some, you lose some... I still love Rachel Vincent.
