Sins of the Fallen

Book Description:
When seventeen-year-old Maximillion Taylor and his best friend, Jones go to a house party, he doesn't expect to get kidnapped—much less by a succubus—and she's not the only one on the hunt. Thrown into a world of angels and demons, where nothing and no one is what they seem, Max ventures to find his true identity and learn to fight the demons who pursue him. When his origin is revealed, it's a race against the clock for a battle that will determine whether he can protect the ones he loves or succumb to his true nature. Through lies, betrayal, love and pain, Max must prepare to face the demons before it is too late…

My Thoughts:
This was a good book.  Max's life completely changes the night of the party.  He and his best friend go to a party, and Max gets a succubus.  Life as Max knew it was no longer.  He was now in a world, not who he always thought he was, and surrounded by people who aren't who he thought THEY were.  As he learns more about himself, he has to face the demons and fight them.
I really enjoyed how the story started out with Max!  Overall, the author did a really good job with the characters.  Written from Max's perspective, we 'think like a boy' and it was dead on!  He does stupid things, falls in love, is attracted to the bad girl, and all sorts of stuff that really happens to teenage boys.  That being said, it was a paranormal book and I loved the angel/demon elements.  This is book one in the series and I expect the next book to be just as good!
I rate this a 4/5.  It was a good YA book and I am ready to read more.
