*Review* Crushed by Ginna Moran

Genre: YA Paranormal
Published: September 29, 2016
Pages: 350


After discovering a life-altering secret that brings her closer to Hell than ever, seventeen-year-old Cami Anders must adjust to a new life full of possibilities she never imagined. 

Giving up a life on the run in exchange for protection from the Hunter’s Alliance was an easy decision for Cami to make. Training with the best hunters guarantees that she will soon have the strength to defeat the demon who killed her parents. The only problem? She might not have a chance to reach her full potential as more secrets come to light, threatening to unravel everything she’s fought for. 

Finding her life in more danger than ever, Cami makes an unthinkable deal that sends her life spiraling down a path straight toward evil. One wrong step means she could lose not only her life but also her soul. Is Cami strong enough to resist the darkness or is she destined for Hell?


I was hired to proofread this book. The only aspects of the story that I influenced were the spelling and grammar. If you feel that my connection to the book makes my review untrustworthy, so be it, but this is my honest review.

This book inspired some very strong emotions in me, mostly hate, and I don't use that word lightly. There was a lot of injustice for Cami, based purely on elements of herself from birth; things that are completely out of her control. In addition to that, The Hunter's Alliance seems to be a rather corrupt organization, and that angers me too. Honestly, I drew a few parallels between the story and actual real life current events, which just left me feeling more anger. 

This book added some more intrigue to Cami's life. We learn more about her family life that is kind of sad. That only contributed to my strong emotional response.

In the end, I feel like this book is leading to a major shift in the status quo. I'm sure there will be some big changes on the horizon.

Overall I give Crushed 4.5 out of 5 stars. - Katie
