Review Of: The Stars Never Rise

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.

Oh, how amazing this book was.  There were so many twists and surprises that I didn't expect, at all, which totally added to my enjoyment The Stars Never Rise.

I've read my fair share of books about angels and I'm no stranger to stories involving demons but this was a whole new take on the whole thing. The writing and pacing was fantastic, the characters unique in their own right and the love aspect....a challenge that I am dying to see play out.
I really don't want to say too much for fear of giving away things that I enjoyed being surprised by. For what it's worth, I completely loved the book and can't wait for the next installment!
