Contest & Cooking with the Authors of Demons at Deadnight



I am SO incredibly excited to be featuring some of my favorite folks today. The Kirks of Teens Read and Write are here sharing a recipe from the new book Alyssa and Eileen Kirk cowrote called Demons at Deadnight. Yay! Check it out:


Aren't they the cutest? Don't these cookies look delicious?
I can almost smell them and can not wait to try this recipe.

Now let me tell you more about the book Demons at Deadnight...
For seventeen-year-old Aurora Lahey, survival is a lifestyle.

DEMONIC DESTINY
Aurora has the crappiest superpower on the planet. And it’s just unleashed a hit squad from hell. Demons are on the hunt, salivating to carve her carcass into confetti.

CHARISMATIC KILLERS
The Hex Boys—mysterious, hunky, and notorious for their trails of destruction—have the answers Aurora needs to survive. But their overload of deadly secrets and suspicious motives makes trusting them a potentially fatal move.

LETHAL ALLIES
The battle to save her family, herself, and stop demonic domination may cost Aurora everything worth living for, and force her to reveal her own dark secrets. But no worries. She needs the Hex Boys to pull this off, and, chances are, teaming up with these guys will get her killed anyway.

The Bookish Brunette called it, "AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!"
In the Hammock Book Reviews called it, "a no holds barred adventure."
Mindful Musings called it, "well-worth the read."
YA Book Queen called it, "so fun...constantly grinning."
The Unread Reader called it,
"so clever...I lost count of how many times I highlighted paragraphs and bookmarked pages."

So I have just one question for you: Are you ready to read this book yet?
