Xlina thinks the only way to lead a normal life is to get away from her father, the strict and duty-obsessed druid. But little does she know that being a Baku means misery, challenges, and troubles will follow her everywhere she goes. So while moving to Portland, Maine, seemed like a great option for Xlina, she wasn’t prepared for what awaited her there. Oxivius, an exiled necromancer, presents a silver lining in Xlina’s fight against demons as she tries to rid her soul of the head demon Malek’s mark. Will she be able to change her perception of good and evil and finally get her soul back from the evil clenches?

The Infernal Games by Reed Logan Westgate is a flawlessly written urban fantasy sci-fi.
