Speak of the Devil by Shawna Romkey

Speak of the Devil BY Shawna RomkeyLily is in high school with her two best friends, Julie and Mike. They do everything together and are looking forward to the end of the school year. When Julie and Mike pick up Lily, they have no idea that their lives are about to change forever. After a horrific car accident, Lily is left to deal with the fact that she will never see her best friends again. The loss is overwhelming, and when she tries to go back to school, she cannot help but stare at their empty desks any longer. Making a huge decision, she decides to leave her mom and dog, not to mention the memories of her best friends behind, and move to Kansas City, where her dad, stepmother and half-siblings live.

Going to school and working, she tries to keep as busy as possible, to try and move on with her life. Her obsession with her best friends’ deaths keep her at arm’s length from everyone, until she meets “THEM”. They seem to be high school students like herself, but Lily get the vibe that something is “off” about this group of theatre kids. One day while spying on them, Lily finds out there is more to them than what they seem to be: Angels on Earth, there to protect the Guardians, but where good is, there is also evil.

Angels versus Demons. Who will win the war? And will Lily truly believe before it is too late?

Even though I am not a teenager, I found myself immersed in Lily’s story. The writing is impeccable, and the characters seem so real that you truly hesitate to put it down. I actually read it twice and enjoyed it just as much the second time. Speak of the Devil is truly a TBR book that should be moved to the top of your pile. The author has really created a wonderful new series that should not be missed, whatever age you are. Don’t let the “Young Adult,” fool you; this is a book that anyone interested in the Paranormal can enjoy— a wonderful story about coping with death, a unique take on Angels and Demons, not to mention how to not to mention how to cope with a “new” family, including younger siblings, and their relationship. I will be looking for the next book in this new series with anticipation.
