"Louisa Lo has an exciting new voice to bring to urban fantasy and a fun and breezy writing style that kept the pages quickly turning well into the night! I need more!"
--Michelle Rowen, National Bestselling Author
Megan is a typical university student trying to figure out her place in the world, except instead of hoping to pass the bar or get into med school, she’s studying to become a licensed vengeance demon.
Nineteen-year-old Megan Aequitas is the only vengeance demon and trickster hybrid ever born. In a world where vengeance demons are respectable, rule-obsessed guardians of the Cosmic Balance, and tricksters are playful, happy-go-lucky perpetrators of chaos, being half and half is, well, tricky.
Determined to prove herself worthy of her vengeance blood, Megan enrolls in University of Demonic Studies’ prestigious co-op program. Wreaking karmic revenge on wrongdoers from cheaters to crooks sounds fun and simple, if it weren’t for the unsuspecting human roommate, Megan’s flamboyant trickster half-brothers, a changeling-raised fellow outcast, and a trio of evil wannabes. Then one assignment turns deadly when Megan discovers a plot to unleash an ancient force so authoritarian, most creatures would be deemed too unworthy to exist.
After a lifetime of being embarrassed by her trickster tendencies and striving to fit in vengeance society, Megan now has to learn to embrace both of her worlds if she wants to save them.
What a fantastic story. Admittedly, I was hesitant to read this book, as I’m am with most new authors, but I’m very glad I gave it a chance. The story is original and the world Mrs. Lo designed is intriguing. The main character is fun, witty and kind. I love how Megan doesn’t let the terrible way she’s been treated make her angry and bitter.
Megan’s creativity in how she exacted revenge for the innocent had me laughing out loud.
I loved going on this journey with her and can’t wait to find out what her next adventure will be.
Unique and exciting, I enjoyed the different paranormal story line that flows smoothly through this book. A halfbreed born to a vengeance demon and a trickster, Megan's lot in life is not an easy one as she's always treated as an outsider because of her mixed blood. She's taught to rely on the logic of her vengeance side while tampering down her trickster magic as she struggles to pass university to become a full fledged vengeance demon. Disaster strikes and once again she's blamed for her trickster blood. Kicked out of school for something she didn't do, Megan's road to redemption becomes rocky and fast paced as she finds out being half trickster might save the world. With a kick of humor from her trickster family members for a great story I couldn't put down and I can't wait for the next in the series. My voluntary, unbiased review is based upon a review copy.
