The demons strike back!

But all hell breaks loose when she's stolen from school and brought face to face with the devil himself. Lily has to find her way back home to Luc, crack the prophecy that breaks the curse silencing God, and figure out how she and Luc can ever really be together; but Lucifer has other plans for her that don't include her ever getting out of Hell intact. 

5 Stars!!!!!

Holy Crap!!!! Just when I thought book 1 couldn't get any betteralong comes book 2 blowing it right out of the water. This series is one of the most kick ass paranormal ones I have read. I seriously did NOT expect any of the things to happen that did. This is such a unique take on a old story and I was unable to put it down. I am still trying to figure out how the author managed to make me actually feel bad for The Devil at times, although I still knew he was an evil fu**er! The way The Devil was portrayed was intriguing concept for me.
This was the prefect follow up to book 1, and a crazy page turner. Poor Lily, she has gone through so much. I really feel for her and Luc. The endingOMG the ending! Major major cliffy!!!!! My jaw dropped to the floor and I kept hitting the page turn on my kindle begging for there to secretly be more. Praying this was all some sort of mean joke being played on me. NOOOOOOOO. Of course it wasn't a joke, and I am left going crazy wondering what will happen next. However, even though it was a huge cliffy, I still need to applaud Shawna on a fan-frikkin-tastic ending! Seriously, my mind is working on overdrive thinking up all the things that can happen next, and it will be a fun little game to see if any of my thoughts come true. This is def one cliffy I didn't mind having. 
The story continued on. God was still silent…missing. The Angels and Demons were still at war, and things were only about to get worse. You are introduced to a new character…Lillith…who was a story all in her own. She was very odd yet interesting at the same time, and I really look forward to seeing how her character plays out in the next book. Maybe even a spinoff explaining her history?
One of my favorite things of this book was how much Lily grew throughout the story since book one. With everything going on she has managed to keep her humanity, stay strong, and put others before herself. She truly is an inspirational character on so many levels. 

An incredible read that I would recommend to everyone! Even if you are not a fan of paranormal, this book is sure to grip you and catch your interest.
