Armentrout’s first full-length Dark Elements title starts with a bang. She pairs a fast-moving plot with a colorful cast and a strong-willed heroine. Fans and
newbies alike will definitely love this.

Layla Shaw longs to be more like her adopted family: a full Warden instead of a half-Warden/half-demon, unique and separate from the one she loves most, her adopted brother. But she can help with her family’s demon-hunting. Able to see souls, she tags demons for the Wardens to track. But all that changes when she meets the enigmatic Roth. Mysterious and sexy Roth has her questioning everything she’s been taught, giving her tantalizing glimpses of her biological parents. When the truth about her parentage is revealed, it will change everything. (HARLEQUIN TEEN, Mar., 400 pp., $9.99, ISBN: 9780373211104, PB, 14 & Up)
