Synopsis from Goodreads:
Firia has always wanted to be a witch, but even though she’s a natural in magic, there’s a problem: She’s human.
Considered by the elven elite to be inferior, Firia needs an edge to be accepted into the Magic Academy. Out of sheer desperation, she summons the demon Varuj, a terrifyingly gorgeous spirit who helps her win the entrance competition. But at what price?
As the commanding demon does everything he can to penetrate every aspect of her innocent life, Firia still finds herself drawn to her study partner, Mae’lin. Not only is the sweet elf completely different from the powerful Varuj, but their relationship is forbidden.
How is she supposed to choose between the demon she owes her life to and the innocent elf who makes her a better person?
Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.
The characters in this novel are quite well developed. I enjoyed getting to know them. I appreciated that all of the major characters were developed in both the past and the present, giving you a well-rounded knowledge of who they are. It allows you to connect with and identify with them much more easily.
Overall, this was an enjoyable, if somewhat disjointed, novel that kept me on my toes.
