Misfit Review


Misfit by Jon Skovron



Pre-order it at Amazon: Misfit (hardcover)

Summary:

Jael has always felt like a freak. She’s never kissed a boy, she never knew her mom, and her dad’s always been superstrict—but that’s probably because her mom was a demon, which makes Jael half demon and most definitely not a normal sophomore girl. On her sixteenth birthday, a mysterious present unlocks her family’s dangerous history and Jael’s untapped potential. What was merely an embarrassing secret before becomes a terrifying reality. Jael must learn to master her demon side in order to take on a vindictive Duke of Hell while also dealing with a twisted priest, best-friend drama, and a spacey blond skater boy who may have hidden depths.

Author Jon Skovron takes on the dark side of human nature with his signature funny, heartfelt prose.

What I gave it: 4/5 Four out of Five stars!!!

Where I got it: Netgalley

My thoughts:

This book I enjoyed and devoured it once I got into it! In the beginning I really didn't like it, and it was kind of slow, but eventually picked up speed, but it was mainly after Jael got the piece of herself back. This book was kind of slow on the details of the past though, and left me with so questions if there is a next book, for example a lot of Hell is still kind of shady in this book, and I want to know what her full extent of what she can do. Misfit was a good read though, it's creativity is a high plus in my book, and I found it good that someone wrote the side of a half demon, since we already have the courtesy of our nephilim characters from authors like Cassandra Clare with The Mortal Instuments. But otherwise I'd recommend this to people to people who like the nephilim/angel genre because it's nice to see the other side of demons.

  1. I'm glad to see you liked it! I absolutely love this book. It was definitely nice to see a different angle on the demon idea, and there was so much creativity in the pages. :) I loved the mythology so much! Nice review.

  2. Thanks! I felt the same way, we have so many angel books now, so it is nice to see the usual bad guys point of view! but it also shows that they're not all bad! lol
