If you’re 12 or over, not very squeamish, and you like action stories, then I suggest you take a look at Demonosity by Amanda Ashby. Even though it’s exciting, I would recommend this book for 12 or over because it has some bad language and romance stuff that probably isn’t appropriate for younger kids.
This story is about a 16-year-old high school girl called Cassidy Carter-Lewis. Cassidy just wants a normal life, but that’s pretty much impossible when she’s living two lives at once. On one hand, she’s trying to protect the Black Rose, the secret to unlimited power, from demons. On the other hand, Cassidy is trying to help her dad recover from physical problems, and she’s trying to get along with her mom, but it isn’t working out very well.
At 341 pages, Demonosity wasn’t the fastest read for me, but how long it takes you to read pretty much depends on your reading level. At the beginning, the book wasn’t very catching, but as I got farther into the book, it started to turn into an action-packed page turner.
Demonosity has lots of action-packed scenes, and a few romances that I didn’t find very interesting. The book also had many unusual settings, including when Cassidy finds demons at the library and at school, which she has to fight with a sword or a knife.
All in all, Demonosity is a very good book for hard-core readers.
