BLURB from Goodreads
By 2015 the streets of Los Angeles have been transformed from a thriving metropolis to a hostile world ravaged by demons bent on assimilating the human race. Standing between this total apocalypse of humanity and their chance for survival is 19 year old Remy Martin.

A warrior in her own right, trained to think on her feet and kill if the situation requires, she is flanked by her older brother and younger sister. Together, they devise a plan to take back the streets. Against the wishes of their father, who commands the resistance forces, they venture into unknown realms of the supernatural in a race against time with the fate of the entire world in their young hands.

Join them on their mission into darkness where death lies around every corner, it is virtually impossible to distinguish your enemies from your allies, and a single mistake could result in the annihilation of everyone you’ve ever known and loved.

I downloaded this e-book Free from the story really revolves around three siblings, Greg the eldest and male and Remy the eldest sister with Shane being the youngest. Whereas Greg and Remy are more physical fighters within the apocalypse aftermath, Shane is a biochemist who discovers new drugs to help the fighters to fight against the superior strength of the demons. Greg and Remy have been on many missions against the demons but only seem to be keeping them at bay slightly rather than winning the battle against them. The man in charge a former army man, an Admiral is stubborn in his plans, and to make matters even more awkward for Remy and Greg he is their father. Obviously the Admiral doesn't want to allow his children on the missions but he has to as they insist and are two of his best fighters. He cannot bear the thought of losing any one of them. You see his wife, the mother to Greg, Remy and Shane was possessed by the demons and her own daughter Remy had to kill her. Remy still has nightmares about that day.
There is a dangerous way to infiltrate the demons, can Greg and Remy do it alone or do they need the knowledge and drugs their younger sister has access to? Will any of them escape alive?
Well the mission goes ahead and it is discovered that Remy is "special" but how? Well Remy cannot be possessed by the demons no matter how hard they try her body/mind repels them out. Remy meets a man named Daelen wilst she is undercover infiltrating the demons, but who or what is Daelen that he is not possessed? Does he work for the demons? Can he be trusted? And what does he mean when he tells Remy she is special?
Wow this novella is fast paced, with plenty of action and danger within it. I was immediately attached to the siblings and their bravery and need to do something about the Demon problem. I also loved their feeling for one another, the "petty" sibling rivalry and the "would do anything for each other" The ending is a really good cliff hanger moment of "Will Remy break the lockdown rule and venture outside to meet Daelen?"
Also the Demon master Lilith is now aware that Remy is "special", that Shane is Remy's sibling. So the demons will be on the lookout for Greg, Remy and Shane now. There is a very risky mission that could tip things to favour the humans, will the admiral allow his three children to undertake it?
So did I enjoy the book? Yes, a lot! Would I recommend the book? Yes, am going to recommend it to my daughter now! Would I read more of this series? Yes I have to know what happens next! Would I read more by Willow Cross? I plan too, yes.
