Misfit by Jon Skovron
Release Date 1st August 2011
This is neither fast paced or slow to get into, (I feel like Goldilocks here, lol) it was just right. Straight off, I loved the cover then I read the blurb and thought, "Yeah, I have to read this."
Jael is a complete misfit for no real reason, other than she and her dad were always moving when she was younger. It's got to be hard to always be the new kid in school, but she's also always felt like something was missing from her life. So when she finds out she's actually a half demon, it kinda all makes sense. In a demons-are-real kind of way.
I really loved Jael and her completely difficult relationship with her father. I liked how the author described magic - it was a different way of describing things and I loved how he gave the elements emotions. It seemed to help it all fit in a bit better, you could understand how it would work and you could imagine it really well.
A great YA read and I'm really hoping there's a sequel out there. The story did seem to end in this book but there is definitely potential there for more.
