Tainted by Ginna Moran

Series:  Demon Within #1

Published Date:  June 30, 2016 by Sunny Palms Press

Summary:  Seventeen-year-old Cami Anders uses one word to describe her life: Purgatory. What she doesn’t know is she’s closer to Hell than she thinks.

On the run from the demon that killed her parents, Cami struggles to find her place on the fringes of the Veiled Realm, the part of the world where demons and other creatures lurk in the shadows. Striving to find a normal life in the care of a former demon hunter, who would punch even an angel to protect her, is harder than Cami ever imagined. There’s nothing ordinary about sipping holy water like it’s her beverage of choice, having stare-downs with animalistic demons, and relying on a hunter with enough secrets to fill an ocean to keep her soul safe.

When the demon from Cami’s past arrives to collect her soul, which he believes is rightfully his, she must unravel the secrets her protector has spent the last three years keeping from her. She finds herself questioning her existence and learns that running isn’t the answer. The only way to find normalcy is if she fights for it. But is it worth the risk of losing everything, including her soul, in the end?

My Thoughts

I received a copy for an honest review.  Well this book was meh for me.  I felt like nothing happened at all and nothing was explained.  The world building was terrible.  The premise seemed pretty interesting but totally fell short.

At the very beginning, the book had a lot of potential, because Cami wakes up to her house burning down with a demon trying to suck her soul.  Then Alana picked her up along the side of the road. Then the book goes three years later with Cami and Alana killing demons and running from the demon that tried to suck Cami’s soul.

They talk about the Veiled Realm, but do not explain it at all.  Also, I did not like the insta love with Dylan that was obnoxious and I couldn’t ever tell if he was real or not.  He appeared in Cami’s dreams but also in real life, so confusing.  I think Cami and Evan’s relationship could have potential if she would just forget about Dylan.

I also thought Cami being half-demon was interesting.  But it never really explained how her mom ended up with the demon in the first place.

Overall, there were a lot of issues with this book and it was just ok.
