Neha was a normal high school girl living in Philadelphia and she was just like any other girl or so she thought Her parents died when she was a baby and she was raised by her guardian Lucas Everything changes when she meets the new boy in school Daniel We soon find out that Lucas is a demon Daniel is an angel and Neha discovers she’s an angel tooAn angel raised by a demon is an odd thing considering that the two have been at war for generations Neha is taken to heaven by Daniel to be trained to fight demons and convince the others that she didn’t know she was an angel being raised by a demon She is seen as an outcast by the angels and has to prove she is valuable but Neha’s upbringing gives her a different opinion on the war between both sides Will Neha figure out what her new role in the universe will beThe Demon’s Angel by Maya Shah is a YA novel in the tradition of the Harry Potter and Percy Jackson books Neha is a girl who finds out she wasn’t who she thought she was and has to deal with a truth that she didn’t believe in I love how complex all the characters are in this story they are nothing like you would expect angels and demons to be Maya Shah has taken an old mythology made it her own vision and turned it into something originalMy only complaint about The Demon’s Angel was that it was a little light on action For a YA novel I would have expected it to be faster paced This is a character driven book and it does a great job of establishing some fascinating characters Neha is someone that anyone who has felt like an outsider can relate to and it will be interesting to see how she changes in future books This is the first in a series and it lays the foundation for what looks to be a fascinating story I liked that Heaven was a different place then you would expect and some of the angels come across as being shady especially the lead angel Michael It’s the same with the demons they show that they have a good side and aren’t necessarily evil In Neha’s world everyone is a shade of grey and she isn’t sure who she can trust Neha sees the world differently and I’m looking forward to seeing where her story will go as she finds out what kind of person she wants to be


Ho believes aiding her will make up for the girl he couldn’t save and his scarred sister who is far less eager to help Proving herself useful to the angels is almost impossible especially because the information Neha has are things their leader would rather keep secret An angel raised by a demon however must be valuable in some way Lucas thought so. I enjoyed this book immensely It was entertaining adventurous and uestions a lot about what is typically good and evil The only reason I dropped a couple of stars for the rating was because I felt there could have been a lot explanation and world building and also because there's uite a few spelling and grammar errors that bugged me a but That aside I really loved the story Neha was a loveable character yet she is not without her flaws My overall opinion after reading this is that I'd rather be a Demon and also there's something else at play in this book and a lot to the AngelDemon war than there seems to be I will definitely be reading the seuel to this when it's released

Maya Shah ´ 1 CHARACTERS

The Demons AngelAt Neha not only has to prove that she did not know anything about demons she has to prove that she is on the angels’ side And she is So she thinks But the angels are far from the benevolent ones she heard about Especially their leader who can’t wait to see her fail As her search for answers only leads to uestions Neha must rely on Daniel a boy w. I loved the concept the idea of this novel I had a phase of reading anything angel related so it's only natural that I wanted to be all nostalgic and pick this one up as well As far as the idea goes this novel didn't disappointWhen it comes to the characters I have to say that I liked Daniel and Liz two angels best Daniel is the one finding Neha on earth and obviously he feels protective of her from the start Not in an insta love kind of way though At least it didn't feel like that to me I like the way he tries finding his path between the ways he's used to and the unusual circumstances Neha finds herself inAs for Liz That girl is bad ass She's been humiliated in the past yet finds a way back to being happy and fighting for what she wants and believes in It's admirable reallyBecause even a tiny pawn stuck in a corner on the board is capable of causing checkmateI couldn't really connect with Neha Okay her guardian Lucas betrayed her lied to her during her entire life but yet she's eager to believe the angels The ones who abducted her to heaven pretty much keep her prisoner and don't do a thing to answer her uestions Those she believes while writing Lucas off completelyAt first I understood But after a while I just How can she care so little about the person she lived with her entire life that she simply wants to fit in with the angels and barely looks back And then all of a sudden she turns around distrusting the angels It just Felt offSpeaking of a sudden turn around Liz a fellow angel is pretty horrible to Neha at first Then poof let's be besties No just no Things like that need to grow and I felt like it was lacking just that Growth Everything just appeared happened was without anything really building up to it Not just Liz' attitude but also events in general certain behavior that felt random to meIt was like he and I were sharing a secret that I didn't know aboutAll in all it honestly was a pretty enjoyable read Despite my remarks I did fly through the novel and ended up liking it 3 5Kathy
