Devil’s Kiss, by Sarwat Chadda (Disney Hyperion, 2009)

As the newest squire, and only girl, in the modern-day remnants of the Knights Templar, Billi SanGreal is under a lot of pressure to live up to her family’s legacy, even though she’d rather lead a normal life. However, there’s no end to the fight against Evil, especially when one of the Templars’ greatest enemies returns, intent on revenge. Now Billi and the other Templars are in for an epic battle, with the lives of millions at stake. What price will be paid to keep London safe from a horror of Biblical proportions, and what will this do to Billi’s chance at love? Devil’s Kiss reads like Buffy crossed with The DaVinci Code in some ways, but swiftly creates its own memorable identity. Chadda is an author to watch.
