The Star Never Rises by Rachel Vincent

Sixteen-year-old Nina Kane should be worrying about her immortal soul, but she's too busy trying to actually survive. Her town's population has been decimated by soul-consuming demons, and souls are in short supply. Watching over her younger sister, Mellie, and scraping together food and money are all that matters. The two of them are a family. They gave up on their deadbeat mom a long time ago.

When Nina discovers that Mellie is keeping a secret that threatens their very existence, she'll do anything to protect her. Because in New Temperance, sins are prosecuted as crimes by the brutal Church and its army of black-robed exorcists. And Mellie's sin has put her in serious trouble.

To keep them both alive, Nina will need to trust Finn, a fugitive with deep green eyes who has already saved her life once and who might just be an exorcist. But what kind of exorcist wears a hoodie?

Wanted by the Church and hunted by dark forces, Nina knows she can't survive on her own. She needs Finn and his group of rogue friends just as much as they need her.@goodreads



This book was pretty awesome!

Um, how do I do this review without spoilers? This is one that needs spoilers to get to the - oh forget it, I will just pretend and no one will really know what's going on unless they read the book!

Sooooooooooooooooooo, Nina Kane and her sister Melanie live in New Temperance with their mom who is doped out all of the time. They (mainly Nina) has to get them stuff to pay the bills and feed them. Pretty much she bargains and steals. Anyhoo, the town is run by the church and the exorcists. . . . they are not good church people or good exorcists, that's all I'm going to say there.

Also there are demons around that will try to kill you and they are called: degenerates. They are called this for a reason but you can read about that too. They come in a not so narly package or they can come put together all kinds of wrong.

Either way, you don't want these things getting you!

One particular night one tries to get Nina and this boy appears and saves her with some bright light thing. <--Not telling.

Then Nina ends up meeting Finn again later on when she's attacked again, some stuff goes down and her sister Melanie is carted off because she has sinned. And Finn takes Nina with him to tell her about herself and to meet his band of merry boys and girls.

You have Maddock, Reese, Devi and Grayson. They are all really good friends and they have some things in common, but ole Finn has something about him that is cray, sad and cool all at the same time!

Anyway, I really enjoyed this book and I hope others will as well ♥
