Expected Publication:  February 26, 2016
At eighteen years old, Cassidy has suffered more loss than most... At the end of her senior year, her boyfriend, Jace Peters, was killed in a car accident, and her grandmother died only weeks later of a heart attack. Emotionally lost, Cassidy desperately searches for an heirloom her boyfriend was wearing in the crash-her mother's gold ring. But during her search, Cassidy discovers more than her ring. She finds a gate to the Demon Realm.... A battle is brewing, and Killian-head of the Demon hunters-preps his Clan for the approaching conflict. They've been working to secure the gate between his realm and the mortal world. But it's been nearly impossible since Rya-a voracious demon on a quest to expand her power-devoured the soul of his Clan's necromancer. Now Rya is possessed with the necromancer's powers and she may break through the gate at any moment. Apparently Rya isn't the only one Killian has to worry about... When Cassidy accidentally crosses into the Demon Realm, Killian can't understand how a human girl survived the transition. Now he has to find a way to return her to her own world, or risk her being caught in the crossfire, which is a complication he definitely doesn't need. Once back in the Human Realm, Cassidy readies herself for battle. She signs up for Krav Maga classes, where she meets Tyler Romaitis-a handsome, tenacious, humble guy. He seems almost perfect, but nothing is ever that easy. And as the balance between good and evil shifts, Cassidy finds herself-and her ring-at the heart of the conflict for the survival of mankind.

The first 4 chapters of the book is so good I thought I would like it until the very end. But after the few chapters, the story started to get slow. And in the part that the characters are being introduced in the story, I just felt that there is something missing. I didn't felt any connection with the other characters other than Cassidy. And it was really hard for me to accept that suddenly Cassidy and Killian has a thing. Everything that happened after she got her tattoo was so unbelievable that I am already having a hard time liking it.

Overall, I still think that this book could have a great potential. The World- building is promising if you ask me. Maybe it only need some changes that will make the story more interesting. There should also be some edits to made and focus on more about the pacing and how will keep the readers interest in the story. There are alot of details here I find unnecessary. The author should really build a good momentum in every chapter to keep every reader's interest.
