Description

From RACHEL VINCENT, "New York Times" bestselling author, comes the first book in a new series about a girl who must join forces with rogue exorcists to save her sister and, ultimately, humanity.
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.
Haunting, unsettling and eerily beautiful.
--Rachel Caine, author of the "New York Times" bestselling Morganville Vampires series
