The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff
Daphne, daughter of Lilith and Lucifer, is living an existence of boredom and fear in Pandemonium (the eternal city of metal and flame.) She lives vicarously through her brother Obie (son of Lilith and Adam) when he brings her back souvenirs from his trips to the human realm to save lost souls. Her chance encounter with a human boy named Truman who crossed the veil too soon changes her life forever and gives her the courage to go look for Obie when he goes missing on Earth.
The world building for Pandemonium is very well done. The reader can picture it all just like seeing it in a movie. This is an interesting twist on standard teen angst fiction by having the protagonist be totally ignorant of human social customs and forced to interact in our world to try and find her brother. This is another dark tale from Yovanoff that is marketed as a Teen book but will appeal to adults as well.
