I'm Dhellia Hunt, princess of the underworld. Daughter of Lucifer and Adana. This is my story.
Being princess of the underworld has its perks, but being imprisoned for all eternity with undesirable duties cast upon her is not one of them.
When Dhellia runs away from home, she never expects her father, Lucifer to become her brutal enemy.
Little does she know that when she abandons her birthright to the underworld, it comes at a heavy price. Fighting for her life and on the run, Dhellia must discover powers she never knew she had to survive.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters are young and lively and the story is well-written. It is intended for young adults, but I ate it up. Dhellia is the daughter of the devil himself, so she has special powers that she is just beginning to understand. Some of these powers scare her as they tend to appear out of nowhere in moments of high stress. Her father sends hellhounds to find her as she hides out here with us on Earth, but her brother Damien looks out for her when he can. He leaves her in the hands of a vampire named Jonas and a wizard, Gavin. Together, the three of them begin their quest to find the murderer of Dhellia’s mother, a human.
I really like April M. Reign’s style. It’s perfect for the YA crowd and the lovers of the Twilight series and Supernatural should just eat this up! I gave this story five stars and look forward to Book 2.

I stared after him for a few seconds before turning my eyes back to Geir. "Ever been struck by lightning?" I asked in an off-handed way, rubbing at my still tingly brow. Geir shook his head, his mouth working silently for a few long seconds. "I thought Queen Mara was wrong. I thought Liam was innocent. I never should have brought you here," he whispered so no one else would hear us. I shook my staticky head and winced. "He didn't mean to do it. I think I might have kind of forced him into it."

Emma’s translucent figure looked different than she had earlier that day. There was no anguish on her face. Instead, it was distorted by the kind of fury which made my blood run cold. She was dressed all in white, everything about her a mix of beauty and horror.
Her mouth worked silently like it had done earlier, yet no sound came from her. That fury changed to a demented rage.
I stood still, my eyes fixed on her with terror in my heart. It occurred to me after a few seconds that Ian stood directly next to me. His arm was rested against mine, small tremors passing through it.
I couldn’t take my eyes off Emma. I didn’t even notice when Ian’s fingers entwined with mine. We stood and stared together until she disappeared as she had done earlier.
I took in a quivery breath and glanced over to find that Ian’s face was damp with sweat, his teeth clamped on the inside of his cheek in a way that distorted his face. He had seen her too? How was that possible?
I had been willing to accept my own delusion. The idea that Ian too had lost his mind, that was not possible. We had seen her. She had been there.
I squeezed his fingers, relieved when he looked down at our hands. The spell had been broken. He pulled his hand free and reached up to rub at the back of his neck. It was an odd thing to see him not as Emma’s brother but as a guy who was as scared as I was.
Our eyes met and I knew that whatever was going on, we would figure it out together. He and I could very well turn out to be friends . . . maybe.
