Mia's ordinary life is disrupted in the most horrifying way possible when she is possessed by a hungry and powerful demon--and only saved by the arrival of relatives from Italy, the country her grandfather fled many decades ago. Now her cousins Emilio and Giuliano say the only way to keep her safe is for her to come back with them to Milan, to live, to learn Italian, to fall in and out of love, and to master the family trade: fighting all demons with the lore of bell, book, and candle. Milan is not what Mia expected, but it will change her forever, in this stunningly well-written novel about an American girl who, fleeing an ancient evil, finds her only salvation in her ancestral home.

Man, I just really didn't enjoy this book. I mean I really LOVED the premise and the beautiful cover, and I had SUCH high hopes for this book because it sounded as if it would be super good. I was really just bored throughout the whole book and stuck with it because I was sure that it would get better and on the last page I realized it wasn’t.
Okay, so here are the particular things I didn’t like. First off, I thought that Mia would “become” a Demon Catcher like the rest of her family in Italy were but all she did was stay in her room and when she did finally get to do something they had her ringing bells. I thought it was sort of weird that she had sort of a crush on her cousin Emilio and when she did finally get a love interest (Lucifero) he got put in the hospital and didn’t show up for the rest of the book.
I really wanted to like this book but I didn’t. Maybe it just wasn’t my cup of tea, so if it still sounds interesting to you maybe you should give it a try.
It Was Okay.
