Deep and dark, filled with twists and turns, plots and sub plots Smoulder will definitely have it for the YA reader market.

Daphne, daughter of Lilith and Lucifer is sent to earth to try and find her brother Obie, who appears to have been kidnapped.

Daphne has no great desire to come to earth as she is really rather comfortable although somewhat bored in her life. But when Mother calls, Mother must be obeyed.

Arriving at this place called earth she discovers a world so far removed from her own that that it takes her some time to sort out the fact that while she is a demon child others are not and are determined to rid the world once and for all of Demons.

Rescuing a human boy from the clutches of a dark archangel sets Daphne on a pathway of self-discovery as she struggles to come to terms with the very real challenges that starting to feel human emotions such as love and fear can bring.

Truman Flynn , the boy Daphne rescued, turns out to possibly be the last person who saw her brother Obie alive and the pair set out to try and find out what happened to him, all the while battling the dark forces who have no intention of letting them succeed.

Who wins the day – is it the dark forces or can love, true love, even though it is demon and human, overcome everything?
