The Demon’s Deadline by Tori Centanni
 
Nicki almost died in the car accident. Instead she was offered a deal.
 
Now she works for the demon Azmos, delivering his mysterious envelopes all over town. Only her boyfriend Cam knows the truth about her after-school job—Cam, who’s (thankfully) as understanding as he is gorgeous and smart. Nicki’s never had Cam’s bold ambitions; her only talent is guessing the killer in a horror movie. All she wants is to graduate high school, marry Cam someday, and live happily ever after… but lately her work for the demon’s pulling her into deeper danger. Danger that threatens her life and also the bonds that matter most to her. Her best friend Melissa, whom she’s forced to lie to. Her grieving father. And Cam.
 
But is it even possible to free herself from the contract that saved her life?
 
And what if she did manage to untangle herself from the arcane world forever — without it, what kind of life does Nicki have left? Once you’ve seen death and darkness, once you know that magic is real, how can you ever go back to being a normal teenager?
 
It’s finally time Nicki faced her own demons….

My review

The Demon's Deadline is an engaging read, perfect for fans of YA paranormal. Nicki survived the car accident that killed her mother, but only because she made a deal with a demon. Azmos can show up at any moment, always to ask her to deliver mysterious envelopes for him. But she gets curious about what the envelopes contain, and her friends start asking questions.

Nicki is a relatable teen and the other characters are well-developed, including her dad and her boyfriend, Cam. She has to keep her deal with the demon secret from her friends, but circumstances threaten to expose her secrets. I like that she has a relatively ordinary life aside from her deal with the demon, which is refreshing to read in YA when the protagonist is usually unique and special.

This is a quick read, but packed with character development and mystery. I wanted to know all about the demons and how they operated, and to find out what happened to Nicki and the other characters. This is a complete story, but with plenty to explore in future books. Recommended!
