Summary from goodreads.com:
For seventeen-year-old Aurora Lahey, survival is a lifestyle.
Aurora has the crappiest superpower on the planet. And it’s just unleashed a hit squad from hell. Demons are on the hunt, salivating to carve her carcass into confetti.
The Hex Boys—mysterious, hunky, and notorious for their trails of destruction—have the answers Aurora needs to survive. But their overload of deadly secrets and suspicious motives makes trusting them a potentially fatal move.
The battle to save her family, herself, and stop demonic domination may cost Aurora everything worth living for, and force her to reveal her own dark secrets. But no worries. She needs the Hex Boys to pull this off, and, chances are, teaming up with these guys will get her killed anyway.
The best part about "Demons at Deadnight" is definitely all of the awesome characters and their funny, witty dialogue. Aurora is a great lead, and all of the Hex Boys are well thought out, well rounded characters, too.
The action was very fast paced, there is never a dull moment in this book. It really reminded me of the adult paranormal romances and urban fantasy books that I have read as opposed to other YA in the genre. There is so much action and the authors don't shy away from violence, gory beasts, and other grittier aspects of the genre. Sometimes, I felt like Aurora was knocked into unconsciousness one too many times but otherwise the action was great.
The Hex Boys were really fun to read about, even though it was a little overwhelming to keep them all straight at first. I think Ayden is my favorite, or maybe Tristan, then there's Logan so I'm not totally sure.... I was glad that Aurora had picked out Ayden as her favorite from the start, so there was no love triangle or anything like that. Although Aurora did seem a little boy crazy at times. I might have liked it better if her gushing about the boys' hotness was more restricted to Ayden only instead of every boy she met.
Main Characters: 5/5
Supporting Characters: 5/5
Bottom Line: Get ready for a no holds barred adventure with Aurora and her cute friends, the Hex Boys.
