Today, we have a review and spotlight of Janette Rallison's "The Girl Who Heard Demons". This was  Kindle Scout winner, which made me especially interested in it. There were many things to enjoy about the story, and here are a few of my highlights.

1. The character voices were engaging. I thought the voice of the narrator provided a distinct character from the first page, and it was a good idea to go with the first person narrative, as it helps us understand a little better of what it would be like to be able to hear demons.

2. The interesting premise. The idea of hearing demons instead of being actually able to see them is a truly interesting idea and I felt that the author executed it well.

3. The content. I loved that while it dealt with seriously scary stuff, it was a clean read, something that I might recommend to teenagers without feeling like there were parts of it they would need to gloss over due to inappropriate content.

All in all, I found it to be a good mix of spooky and "twisty", which is simply my way of saying that it throws unexpected things at you. 

About "The Girl Who Heard Demons"

Shy Adelle Hansen hears demons, but she’s determined to make friends at her new high school by keeping her ability secret.

When she overhears supernatural voices celebrating the impending death of the school quarterback, Levi Anderson, she knows she has to do something to prevent it. However, the demons aren’t the ones plotting; they’re just celebrating the chaos, and Adelle must contend with earthly forces as well if she wants to preserve Levi’s life.

Handsome, popular Levi doesn't appreciate Adelle’s self-appointed role of guardian angel. As Adelle battles to keep him safe, she’ll have to protect her heart, too. Can she do both?

About Janette: 

Janette Rallison/CJ Hill writes books because writing is much more fun than cleaning bathrooms.

Her avoidance of housework has led her to writing 24 novels that have sold over 1,000,000 print copies and have been on many reading and state lists.

Her books are fantasy, sci-fi, and romantic comedy because hey, there is enough angst in real life, but there’s a drastic shortage of humor, romance and hot guys who fight dragons.


She lives in Arizona with her husband, kids, and enough cats to classify her as eccentric.
