The Girl Who Heard Demons by Janette Rallison {Review}

The Girl Who Heard Demons by Janette Rallison
Kindle Edition, 248 pages
Published March 29th 2016 by Kindle Press
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?


My Review: 5 Stars

I'm not a huge fan of paranormal, but Janette Rallison has a way of writing that makes anything entertaining, interesting, and adorable! As with her usual style, the story line flows well, the characters are well developed, and the dialog is witty and engaging. I honestly look forward to everything she writes.

Adelle had an incident when she was younger that left her with the ability to see and hear demons, which is, in a way, both a blessing and a curse. I feel sorry for Adelle, since she has such a burden, but she is a likable girl, although shy. I liked watching her grow and to see her take the advice from others, learning more about herself and the world around her in the process.

Levi is a self-proclaimed atheist. Adelle wants someone to believe her more than anything and he just can't quite do that, but he is amazing at keeping secrets and sticking up for her, even going as far as helping her cover for quite a few things. I adored him!

I loved the ebb and flow of this story. There were times when things were really intense and suspenseful, and other moments when it is calm and fun. The mystery element is a good touch. I enjoy a good, clean, swoony romance and this one had a good amount. The emotions rise and fall, as well, and it's just an all-around, great book. This is a great high school, young adult book, but even "older" readers (like me) will enjoy it! 

Content: mild violence (attempted attacks, mention of drugs, deaths, etc); mild romance (kissing). Clean!

About the Author:

Janette Rallison 
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.
