I love debuts and this was a really nice read. This is appropriate for younger teens as there is no sexual situations, alcohol/drug references that I remembered being too blatant. The dynamic of Nick and his brother Alan really create a good background for the story. There is a lot of action and it is nice to have a male point of view when so many of the paranormals seem to have female protagonists these days. The Demon's Lexicon should have you staying up late to finish it. There is another one in the series to be released next year.
