Way Down Below (Way Down Below Series Book 1) by Nicole Thorn & Sarah Hall

This was a fun book to read. For the most part, the characters read like they were supposed to; meaning they acted, talked, and lived like new adults do in real life. They weren’t looking for any real deep meaning in life. There was no intense save-the-world-prophecy they needed to fulfill. They were just kids, acting like kids. This book is like any YA/NA book with kids who must stand up to oppressive adults, however, these authors added a fun twist by creating three of the characters to be the children of Satan and two of the characters to be daughters of ultra-conservative religious families. I think the authors did a good job presenting the battle of church vs. evil without banging it over the reader’s head.

The fast paced plot drew me in from the beginning and pushed me to see how it ended. I liked the dialog and character development of all the characters, both major and minor. If I had any complaints about the book it would be the final battle ended way too fast.

 

Shiloh Whittaker has spent the last twenty years living under her family’s strict rule. She’s always chafed under their beliefs, and found little ways to break their rules. Now, with her family’s reins tightening, she’s met her match in Luc Bishop.
Luc’s outrageous behavior, wicked smile, and fiery amber eyes draw Shiloh in immediately. Her little rebellions, and desire to break free attract Luc’s attention, but he has secrets that could hurt Shiloh. Luc’s father isn’t human, but the original Fallen Angel, Lucifer, and Luc’s brother was murdered.
The more time Shiloh spends with Luc, the stricter her family’s rules become. To make matters worse, the man who murdered Luc’s brother sets his sights on Shiloh. With danger closing in all sides, Shiloh feels more caged than ever.

Sarah Hall has been writing since her early teens and plans to continue long past her death, via robot body. She spends her days daydreaming about conversations between fictional characters, and ignoring the condescending looks she gets from her cats when she does so. During her day in the unforgiving Arizona heat, she juggles her pets, writing, and her neurotic sometimes writing partner. She has no problems with said juggling, as the Force is with her.
