"After seventeen-year-old Wake Reynolds agrees to trade his life to prevent the damaged soul of his suicidal mother from the fiery tortures of Hell, Satan strips him of his humanity and forces him to become a demonic collector of souls. With no memory of his human existence, Wake preys on defenseless teenagers until they willingly end their own lives.
After many years of loyal service, something inside Wake is changing. Images of a forgotten life, lost human emotions begin to emerge. As Wake struggles to keep these new sensations hidden, Satan orders him to corrupt the soul of a pregnant girl, Annemarie. Beautiful, gentle Annemarie. From the moment Wake sees her, she brings lightness to his dense, blackened heart. If he chooses to defy Satan and spare the lives of Annemarie and her unborn child, his mother’s soul will writhe in pain in Hell’s deepest pit for eternity. Annemarie or his mother? It’s a perverse choice no one should have to make."
I honestly really enjoyed this book. It started off slow and so it took me a while to get into but by then end I was really just wanted to keep reading this. The beginning was also really confusing for me, I guess it might have been the slowness that made it confusing, but otherwise this book had me hook. Annamarie and Wake (Love his name!) were such amazing characters. They were both strong, amazing characters that I ended up loving. I must say Wake you are one demon that I definitely want standing next to me! Gary Caruso made his characters really come to life for me and that is what really makes me love a book. I can't stand reading a book where the characters don't come off the page for me or just don't haunt me after I finish reading the book. Wake you are definitely haunting me...in a good way. I just can't stop thinking about that boy. I definitely recommend reading this book. It is definitely a really good read that I enjoyed. I am currently re-reading this book just to get more of Wake. I think that may count as being a stalker but whatever help right?
