Living in a city of chrome, a mother frozen as time within the city and the ultimate demon for a father, Daphne’s only light is her older half-brother, Obie. When he disappears, she journeys to Earth to find Truman, a boy her brother once helped. In a world she has little understanding of (except from movies and stories of her older sisters, demons who prey on the weak); Daphne must fight a force that wants to eradicate demons from Earth and her feelings for Truman. Feelings that could lead them either back to Hell…or possibly salvation. — Jeanette
A transcendent novel about a demon girl's search for love, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Replacement
Everything burns in Pandemonium, a city in Hell made of chrome and steel, where there is no future and life is an expanse of frozen time. That's where Daphne--the daughter of Lilith and Lucifer--waits, wondering what lies in store for her. Will she become a soulless demon like her sisters? Or follow in the footsteps of her brother Obie, whose life is devoted to saving lost souls on Earth? But when Obie saves a troubled boy named Truman from the brink of death and then goes missing, Daphne is catapulted on a mission to Earth, with Truman as her guide. As Daphne and Truman search for Obie, they discover what it means to love and be human in a world where human is the hardest thing to be.
