A dark and satisfying read,
This review is from: Blue Smoke and Madness (Kindle Edition)
My Demon is great fun. I read it in one sitting and couldn't put it down once I started.
Alex is just a normal teenager with a job in a fashion shop until a session smoking dope reveals a demon to her. Not sure if she is going out of her head, Alex finds coping with her new 'imaginary' friend increasingly difficult. He sees the future and leads her astray.
He tells her she has a mission to save the world. She isn't sure he's telling the truth but he always has a good reason and he uses his powers to seduce and abuse to get her to go along with him.
The reader is left to figure out what's going on and we are not seduced, so we become increasingly worried for Alex as her demon leads her to the dark side.
A tale of death and destruction which is a parable on the danger of good intentions. I wondered how it could end in anything but despair, but Lisa manages a surprisingly upbeat and satisfying ending. This book would make an excellent film.
