Synopsis from Goodreads:

Six hours ago, men in dark suits and sunglasses came looking for me.
Four hours ago, they offered me training to hunt the things that killed my family: demons.
Two hours ago, I joined their secret organization—the CGE.
Now… All I have to do is survive demon-hunting school.

The classes won’t kill me, but the finals might.

My Review:

What an exciting read. Jordan takes the idea of a demon hunter to a whole new level. In this story we find ourselves in what can only be termed a Black Ops training facility for demon hunters. These teens spend years training to be able to track down and capture or eliminate demons around the world. Jordan also takes the definition of demon down a different path. Her demons encompass a much larger realm of supernaturals than just the stereotypical demon.

This action packed story has a handful of well developed characters. The main character is a magnet for trouble. No matter what she does to avoid it, sticky situations seem to just find their way into her path. She is also discovering more about herself and her family throughout her training. While she is running around getting in and out of trouble you find yourself caught up in the suspense of trying to guess what’s coming next and how the situation will pan out, followed by laughing out loud.

I thoroughly enjoyed the way that the author took a subject that has been done to death and gave it a brand new spin. This is a gripping novel that both YA and adult readers can enjoy.
