Invocation by Aileen Erin (Days of Iron and Clay, #1) [booktour]

Samantha is trying very hard to be a normal teenager, but it's a hard thing to do for someone who is part demon part human. Dealing with demonic activities always put her in a mental hospital, so she tried very hard to stay away from it all, but when she heard the scream for help from the apartment downstairs she couldn't  stay away. 

Skip to a few years later, when she is employed in the supernatural community to deal with demon activities, she runs into the cute guy again, but he is the one who needs help now.

It's the first book in what I'm sure will be one hell of a series, of a part demon, a part human girl, fighting against demon invasion and trying not to get found by her father. 

Samantha grows much in the book and becomes stronger by the end. However my favorite part was the paranormal aspect of it, the demons, the portals, it's so cool! :)

I took the book with me everywhere and read it from start to finish in a few days. I couldn't stop reading, the intense pace, the action, the demons, the portals, the romance, it's all SO good.

From USA Today Bestselling Author Aileen Erin comes an all-new action-packed, romance-filled paranormal series.

There are three things I know without question.

One: demons are real.

Two: humans make awful mistakes that get them in demonic trouble more often than you’d think.

And three: I’m the only one who can help them.

I straddle the line between the mortal and spiritual realms every day. People might think they’re two different places, but they’re not. They lay on top of each other. It’s messy, and that’s why so many people need my help. Since I was little, I’ve been called all kinds of names—unusual, abnormal, even insane. Which is fitting, since they keep throwing me in to mental facilities. I’ve been in and out of them my entire life.

But no matter what people say, no matter what I’m risking, I will always help those in need.

Because there’s an endless war carrying on all around us, every minute of every day. One that can’t be seen by mortal eyes. But I can see it, the spiritual battle for mortal souls, and I’m working hard to make sure my father is on the losing side. He — Astaroth, Satan’s general— is why I can do this. He’s why I’m not normal. I can’t have friends, a life, or a boyfriend. I won’t be selfish enough to drag someone into this fight. But I’m not lonely. Not exactly. I have my mom. She’s my rock, my best friend, my partner. She helps me do what needs to be done, and she’s never afraid when it feels like I’m always afraid.

Because I hear my father whispering my name each night, his taunts echoing through the spiritual realm. He’s hunting me, and I know the day will come when I must face him again.

Every portal I open could be the one that finally pulls me back to Hell, and I wonder if I will brave enough, strong enough, good enough to fight him.

My name is Samantha Catherine Lopez, and I am Nephilim. This is my story.

**Fans of the Alpha Girls series will love this new series set in the same world, with a few familiar faces, but you DO NOT have to have read a single word of the Alpha Girls series to enjoy Samantha’s story.

happy reading,
