Synopsis via Goodreads
Chase Williams is a demon hunter in the Circle, or at least he was supposed to be. On his fifteenth birthday, Chase stepped up to the altar to claim his elemental power, but it never came. Elemental magic is passed down to a hunter through the bloodline, but on Chase's birthday, the bloodline stopped.
Exiled without the Circle's protection, Chase has spent two years trying to survive a world riddled with half-demons and magic. When he has a run in with a frightened and seemingly innocent demon, he learns the Circle's agenda has changed: the Circle plans to unlock a portal and unleash pure-blood demons into the world. Vowing to stop them, and knowing he can't do it alone, Chase forms a reluctant alliance with Rayna — a sexy witch with an attitude and a secret.
In their attempt to stop them, Chase and Rayna find themselves in the middle of the Circle's plan, leaving one of them to decide what their friendship is worth, and the other's life depending on it.
Chase; Section 530-532 (Kindle edition)
There were a lot of problems with living in the slums. I could deal with the noisy neighbors. I could handle the random gunshots during the night, but the lack of water pressure was at the top of my list of complaints. This was clearly a sign my life wasn’t normal.
Rayna & Chase; Section 1141-1144
“My, can it be true? One day you’re putting knives to my throat and calling me a filthy demon, and the next you’re having sleepovers with an Underworlder?”
“What can I say, he was prettier than you.”
Chase; Section 1954-1959
A single tree stood in the middle of the clearing, wider around than any I’d ever seen. Its monstrous roots coiled and twisted above the ground for several feet before plunging back beneath the earth. Swathes of huge branches reached to the moonless sky, covered in a rainbow of leaves in an array of greens, reds, yellows, and oranges, as if fall had come early. There were so many leaves littering the ground I was surprised there were any left on the tree. The tips of every branch held colorful flowers that blazed in shades from bright white, to vibrant pink, to dazzling blue. If I could freeze one single vision of beauty, this would be it.
