Dealing With Devils by Pembroke Sinclair

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Source: I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

This book has even more tension than the first book had.  Katie is even more attracted to Josh.  What he does, taking people's souls weighs heavily on her for a while.  She feels safe around Josh, yet feels conflicted.  Her best friend Deb is trying hard to save Katie from Josh.  Enter bad boy Braden.  He and Josh both want Katie.  Braden is higher up in the demon hierarchy. The question is, what does he truly want with her.  Katie keeps hearing from all of the demons and Lucifer himself that her problem is she keeps holding onto her humanity.  Now Katie has a burning desire to find out what they mean by that.  The only way to find out is to demand a meeting with Lucifer and ask him herself.  What she learns seems to make sense yet also holds her back.  She really thought all along that there was Salvation for Josh.  I was conflicted with this book.  I know why I'm conflicted.  My religious beliefs want Katie to see the true evil.  I loved however that there is the added conflict between the two demons.  I worried all the way through as Katie seems to be lacking normal "human" feelings the deeper and darker she delves into the world and work of the demons.  Like the first book this one ended on a cliff hanger.  A lot of people hate endings like this.  I am ot one of them.  It makes me hunger for the next installment.  I feel like Katie is not getting the whole story.  I feel like she is getting herself and her friends deeper into danger.  I keep waiting for someone to come and rescue her from herself.  I guess I'll have to wait to see what happens next.  I will be waiting for the next book.
