Although it is published by the Evernight Teen division, Marcus Damanda's series has all the right ingredients for a skin-chilling thriller for adult readers.
A DEVIL IN DAYLIGHT is the second book in The Devil in Miss Drake's Class Series. While I didn't read the first book, I would recommend that readers start at the beginning to get the full impact.
The storyline picks up with Audrey on the brink of a fresh start. However, the tormentors of her past are not quite ready to admit defeat. With that determination channeled into social media, it's not long before the drama kicks into high gear. Add a parallel storyline featuring a demonic character and the book quickly starts hitting high marks on the supernatural scale.
Some elements of the story, particularly the hateful teenagers and their use of social media, are so realistic that it is eerie. I found myself quickly getting caught up in the storyline.
While I could have done without the cliffhanger, it certainly was successful in making sure that I added the next installment of this series to my list. It might feature a storyline geared for teens, but it had plenty of appeal for this adult reader.
