Image of Death, Doom, and Detention (Darklight)

Jones’ second YA is an entertaining tale. Her characters really seem like teens, and the story manages to surprise throughout. Readers will love Lorelei — and Jared.

Lorelei’s dealing with a lot: long-term demon possession, secretive grandparents — and the super-hot angel of death, Jared. Jared’s staying away from Lorelei, per her grandparents’ requests, while her visions are getting stronger and harder to deal with. Meanwhile there’s a new kid at school who seems kind of … strange. Suddenly everyone’s acting weird, and Lorelei and her crew must save the day. (ST. Martin’s Griffin, Mar., 320 pp., $9.99, ISBN: 9780312625214, PB, 13 & Up)
