Hiding places are scarce when both Heaven and Hell intend to find you.
Dani Fayel’s backbreaking job as a stable hand at The Freaks’ Fair isn’t glamorous, but for someone looking to keep to the shadows? It’s perfect. Neither paranormal freaks nor human norms ever notice her. But when Dani is forced to either let a child die in order to maintain her anonymity or choose to save him and risk being discovered, she finds herself unwillingly thrust into the spotlight.
Cain, Hell’s premier assassin and a predatory incubus, is close to fulfilling his final contract and earning his freedom. Hired by the Archangel of Death to find his daughter, Cain follows her trail to the Fair. He works undercover, certain his mark is inside one of the portable canopies or traveling cages. Dead or alive, she equals his ticket to freedom.
When Cain’s objective is divulged, Dani realizes she can’t outrun her destiny. As the fabled Key—the one soul with absolute free will who is tied to the three realms of Heaven, Earth and Hell—only she is capable of opening the gates for the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Whoever frees the Horsemen allegedly commands them. Now both Heaven and Hell are vying for her allegiance, and there are no limits as to how dirty they’ll fight to obtain it. With Hell raining indiscriminate chaos as Heaven maneuvers its players around her, Dani realizes her would-be assassin may be the only man capable of helping her survive.

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.
RAISING CAIN is a great start to this urban fantasy. The characters and story line are well-developed. Dani has been in foster homes since she was eight years old. She was kicked out of the foster home when she was 23 years old. She has been with the Freak’s Fair since. Now Demons are coming after her, for she is The Key. I loved this book and Dani’s struggle with the knowledge that she is The Key. Now she has to try to stay alive until she claims what side she is on Team Sheol, or Team Malkuth. She has to choose freely to maintain the balance of choice and the free will of mankind. I recommend this book to everyone and cannot wait until the next book to see what happens. I give RAISING CAIN 5/5 STARS.
