Kian has been stolen by his own sister to serve the Demons in the Underworld. Ali has to decide by herself how to rescue Kian, since his sister, Dumah, is a Dark Angel (demon). Dumah has made a really bad mistake. She is violently attacked, beaten, and much worse. Her only hope of survival is if Kian can save her. Her hope is dwindling, minute by minute, until she loses all hope of being saved.
Suddenly a stranger approaches her and whispers”Come with me, and learn why you are different.” Kian disappears, and with no other choice, Dumah follows the stranger. She finds out that she will grow wings and receive a power. Her power will be the ability to move woodlands with her mind. It is crystal clear that there are two kinds of Angels: the Dark Ones, and the Angelfire.
Angelfire protect the humans. The Dark Angels want to rid the world of humans because they think that humans want to steal their power. Rules are explained to her, and the idea that humans are dangerous to them is repeated to her, letting her know that they really believe what they say.
The writing in Dumah’s Demon’s is as fantastic as the other two books in her series, but I had a difficult time relating to this book. It felt as though it was written in a hurry, with many people and details missing. I have to admit that the only reason I could finish it was pure curiosity, to see where Ms. Blackwelder was going with the storyline.
I do not want to give any spoilers, but this book is very dark, with horrific scenes that I felt were not needed, especially in a YA book. There is another book in this series coming out soon. I will purchase it, just to see if it picks up and is more like the first two books, that I loved, or if it will be along the lines of this one. I have high hopes that the next novel will be as well-written as books one and two.
