Kaylee has one addiction: her very hot, very popular boyfriend, Nash. A banshee like Kaylee, Nash understands her like no one else. Nothing can come between them.
Until something does.
Demon breath. No, not the toothpaste-challenged kind. The Netherworld kind. The kind that really can kill you. Somehow the super-addictive substance has made its way to the human world. But how? Kaylee and Nash have to cut off the source and protect their friends—one of whom is already hooked.
And so is someone else…
Wow! I didn’t know that the series would just keep getting better and better. I was surprised by the supernatural take on addiction to drugs. Who would have thought to use Demon’s Breath as a drug to get high?
In the third book in the series, Kaylee and Nash discover that someone is selling Demon’s Breath to teens at their school as a new drug called Frost. What the teens don’t know is that Demon’s Breath is not only addicting, but it is also fatal and brain damaging. If you take too much you can start to have delusions permanently and even die. With the help of Tod and other familiar faces from previous books, Nash and Kaylee need to figure out who is behind the sale of Demon’s Breath and stop it before it spreads further. What Kaylee doesn’t expect is how easily someone close to her becomes addicted to it and covers it up.
My heart broke with this book when the reveal was given to the reader. I picked up on the clues and even knew it was going to happen, but it didn’t stop my heart from breaking at the pain it caused for Kaylee and for the reader. I didn’t know how the author was going to redeem this person and I couldn’t figure out what this meant for the main characters of the book. With the addition of new players in the fight for souls, you will find yourself confused on who to cheer for because you start to like all of them even more. I even fell a little harder for sweet Tod when he goes corporeal and defends Kaylee near the end of the book.
I can’t wait to see what is going to happen in the next book! I need to know how the fallout from this book is going to work out in the next one. I need more Nash, Tod, Kaylee and Emma! A series that still grips me from page one up until the end!
