Demons are no longer the objects of rumors and myths—they walk among us. If you need a wish granted, all you need to do is find a demon and accept the loss of a limb in exchange for your request. Dee has never wanted to be one of those people, but desperate circumstances force her to seek out a deal with a demon and find her life by losing it.

Lloyd-Jones entices you to keep reading just like her demons draw in new people wanting to trade limbs for wishes. Once I started reading, I had a hard time leaving Dee’s world and putting down the book. I loved the suspense and mystery as well as rejoicing with Dee as she learned to let down her walls to allow herself to live instead of simply survive.
