Lynn Rush's Wasteland is not your atypical YA romance. You are thrown in to David's misery from the outset of the book. He must either fight his demonic side or succumb to its depths. David's innate goodness is reflected when his Master tells him to capture fifteen year old Jessica Hanks. Jessica comes with baggage in the form of Rebeka Abbott- her Guardian. The relationship between Bekah and David evolves and she embodies every temptation he could ever want. Demon Born is the tried and true 'good versus evil' plot line and is jam packed with action and angst. I really loved reading from his perspective and loved the fact that Bekah was more than enough to take him on.
Bound by the blood contract his human mother signed four centuries ago, half-demon, David Sadler, must obey his demonic Master’s order to capture fifteen-year-old Jessica Hanks. But as he learns more about her, he realizes she may be the key to freedom from his demonic enslavement.
The only obstacle—Jessica’s distractingly beautiful Guardian, Rebeka Abbott. He must not give in to their steamy chemistry, or he will lose his humanity. But fresh off a quarter millennia of sensory deprivation as punishment for not retrieving his last target, he may not be able to resist temptation long enough to save what’s left of his human soul.
