About the book:

Everyone dreams of that first kiss. Of that magic moment when your lips finally meet those of that special person you’ve waited your whole life for. A little awkward, a little scary, a little hot and every bit amazing. We speculate that the whole world will shake and time will just stop. No one,however, ever imagines that kiss to bring Death himself knocking. 

Sixteen year old Mercy Moore's life just got more complicated. The kiss that originally could have meant she would finally have a boyfriend now was the kiss that could have very nearly ended his life. A small detail her mother conveniently never told her will take her life for an abrupt u-turn. Dating, no love, was now completely and utterly impossible. And the boy well, that boy would never be the same.

But life, however cruel, goes on. Far too soon for her taste, Mercy finds herself at a senior party with the elite students of her school and her best friend. And of all things, playing a stupid game that could very well mean the death of someone in that small room. If it were not for her best friend, the hottest guys in school, and a small need to fit in, she may have been able to escape the disaster that was to come. Her worst nightmare, her personal curse, her very life, only gets dangerously worse.

My thoughts:

This was a wonderful book and I can´t wait to get my hands on the sequel to bad I have to wait until beginning of next year. The only negative thing I have to say about this book is that I think the spelling was off a bit at times. English isn´t my first language so maybe I should keep my mouth shut because I guess I could be wrong but I do think someone needs to take a second look at the book when it comes to the spelling.

So lets move on shall we?
I loved the story line and the setting in the book. It was fun to read about Mercy´s life as a teenager and in a way she had the same problem everyone else has but she has it way worse since she can´t even kiss a guy without being affriad she might kill him. It is not so easy to be Mercy and it gets even worse when there is more than one guy who shows an interest and Mercy is starting to get really confused. 
Mercy is such a lovable character and you instantly feel for her. She is such a good person and she is really struggeling with the demon inside her on a everyday basis. I also loved the four boys that is in one way or another a part of Mercy´s life. The are all very different but all have their own charm and it was really hard not to like them.

The story itself revolved mostly around Mercy and her life as a part demon and her struggles with that and her confusion about her feelings toward a few boys in her life. At the end things heated up and left us with great anticipation for what will happen in the next book. This book was so great and I am really happy I was able to read this book.
