Cally Edwards' novel Playing With Demons unravels an exciting world where humans are merely spectators, oblivious to the existence of powerful supernatural beings we only know from tales. These beings are running the world and maintaining the balance inside it. Introducing a very interesting background story, Edwards gives us a heroine of the modern-day, Grace Campbell, who is half-Nephilim, half-demon, fighting on the side of good. Grace is sent on a mission to infiltrate the demonic lair, or Hell, if you will, and obtain an artifact so powerful that it could destroy the world as we know it! Being half-demon herself, Grace blends in easily with the rest of the demon lot and joins a set of dangerous trials that will change how she sees the world, herself, the balance between good and evil, and life in general.
Cally Edwards puts Grace in the middle of an unlikely romance with none other than Lucifer's offspring, Zadeon, a Prince of Hell, during which she has to come to terms with her dark side and make tough decisions along the way. The playfulness and the excitement of this relationship is one of the things that makes this novel a thrilling read. Edwards describes it very vividly and realistically, sometimes putting the reader in Grace's shoes, thus allowing them to experience all the emotions that she has towards this dark creature, who is also her most dangerous opponent. Playing With Demons is an exciting supernatural story of love, unlikely friendships, full of action, challenges, and fights between good and evil, which shows us that nothing in life, especially the familiar, is what it seems at first.
