Publisher's Summary

Aidan O'Linn's childhood ended the night he saw a demon kill his mother and mark his sister, Ava, with Darkness. Since then, every three years the demons have returned to try to claim her. Living in the gritty, forgotten corners of Los Angeles, Aidan has managed to protect his sister, but he knows that even his powers to fight demons and speak dead languages won't keep her safe for much longer.
In desperation, Aidan seeks out the help of Sid, the enigmatic leader of a group of teens who run LA Paranormal, an Internet reality show that fights demons and ghosts. In their company, Aidan believes he's finally found a haven for Ava. But when he meets Kara, a broken girl who can spin a hypnotic web of passionate energy, he awakens powers he didn't know he had - and unleashes a new era of war between the forces of Light and the forces of Darkness.
With the fate of humanity in his hands, can Aidan keep the Darkness at bay and accept his brilliant, terrifying destiny?

Completely original and intelligent series!

I don't, normally, write reviews. But this series is so outstanding it deserves praise.

If you're looking for a fun, original, series that hasn't been done a hundred times. This is your series. I will admit it is YA, but more mature than 90% of YA out there. There is a "teenage sex fantasy" vibe to it as another reviewer put it. But its fine. And, lots, of mature language. Which even I use, so its nothing. But if you're a person who is too good for that, I'd pass.

The narrator did a wonderful job! He did each character justice. Even the female ones.

So, in conclusion, this series has become my favorite YA series I've ever read. The Kindle book companion is on Kindle Unlimited. But after reading it. I bought both books. And preordered the third.

I warn you, you'll be missing out if you pass this up!

Great story!

We listened to this book as a family and loved every minute of it. It was engaging and we didn't want it to stop. It was a great YA book to listen to with our 15 year old during our vacation. Great job Rachel!
