The Stars Never Rise by Rachel Vincent
Expected publication: June 9th 2015 by Delacorte Press
Genres: Young Adult; Fantasy; Paranormal; Demons
Sixteen-year-old Nina Kane should be worrying about her immortal soul, but she's too busy trying to actually survive. Her town's population has been decimated by soul-consuming demons, and souls are in short supply. Watching over her younger sister, Mellie, and scraping together food and money are all that matters. The two of them are a family. They gave up on their deadbeat mom a long time ago.
When Nina discovers that Mellie is keeping a secret that threatens their very existence, she'll do anything to protect her. Because in New Temperance, sins are prosecuted as crimes by the brutal Church and its army of black-robed exorcists. And Mellie's sin has put her in serious trouble.
To keep them both alive, Nina will need to trust Finn, a fugitive with deep green eyes who has already saved her life once and who might just be an exorcist. But what kind of exorcist wears a hoodie?
Wanted by the Church and hunted by dark forces, Nina knows she can't survive on her own. She needs Finn and his group of rogue friends just as much as they need her.
This cover, oh just look at all the prettiness! Yeah, I’m guilty of judging books by their covers…
But - look at that blurb! Soul sucking demons? A crazed Church trying to exorcize everyone for the smallest crime? Two sisters fighting to stay alive and keep their secrets intact? Yes! How awesome does this sound! Then I take a look at the release date. Sigh. Over ten months? I can wait ten months. Patiently... *gulp* Or maybe not.
Well, on the bright side, at least this will give me plenty of time to start the Soul Screamers series. I have the first book, and I keep overlooking starting it.
