Book one of a series

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

Sixteen-year-old Nina Kane should be worrying about her immortal soul, but she's too busy trying to actually survive. Her town's population has been decimated by soul-consuming demons, and souls are in short supply. Watching over her younger sister, Mellie, and scraping together food and money are all that matters. The two of them are a family. They gave up on their deadbeat mom a long time ago.

When Nina discovers that Mellie is keeping a secret that threatens their very existence, she'll do anything to protect her. Because in New Temperance, sins are prosecuted as crimes by the brutal Church and its army of black-robed exorcists. And Mellie's sin has put her in serious trouble.

To keep them both alive, Nina will need to trust Finn, a fugitive with deep green eyes who has already saved her life once and who might just be an exorcist. But what kind of exorcist wears a hoodie?

Wanted by the Church and hunted by dark forces, Nina knows she can't survive on her own. She needs Finn and his group of rogue friends just as much as they need her.


I love the sound of this! I've seen some great reviews so far too.
What book are you looking forward to?


  1. I just came across this about 2 weeks ago on goodreads. The synopsis didn't exactly pull me in, but the cover is sooo nice. I might pick it up on that reason alone lmao.

    1. I'm not gonna lie, it was the cover that got my attention too. And who hasn't chosen a book based on the cover alone?! haha it's as good a reason as any I say!

  2. Nice! Can't wait for this one either! I love Rachel's books!
