Celeste Garret’s life has not improved at all since she became the Conduit. If anything, it’s ten times more problematic! Superpowers are not so cool when they come with overwhelming weirdness, danger to all around you and the possibility that every boy that likes you might be a murder-bent demon who’s part of the Dark Army.  Readers can see for themselves from these examples:
Demon weirdness.
“You live in the Underworld. Isn’t your whole purpose down there to sit around coming up with more effective ways to be evil? No offense but what the heck else do you have to do?!”
They exchanged determined looks and resolute nods that made my eyes roll. It was Eddie that enthused, “We’re the Dark Army Glee Club!”
Paranormal teenage girl trouble.
“As the Conduit I now had supernatural ways to humiliate myself. Awesome.”
 Paranormal teenage boy trouble.
“Why? Why are you asking me out?”
His expression was equal parts amusement and confusion. “Because if I don’t ask ya, the chance of ya actually showin’ up on the date is highly unlikely, isn’t it?”
 To add to Celeste’s troubles,  her family thinks she’s not handling her Chosen One status that well.... uh,  ya think?!?
Another fantastic, awesome, laugh-out-loud funny addition to the library of “ falling in love” with Stacey Rourke books! It’s different, and a great example of some  pre-Twilight era YA Paranormal books, where angst was minimal, family was important and adventures were up front and center. The characters are great and delightfully unique (especially Grams).  It’s all absolutely squeal inducing for any adolescent! At this point, there really shouldn’t be any doubt that the aforementioned library will get many more amazing additions!
