Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Ethan has no memory of what happened to him on Lena's birthday and is puzzled and hurt by the growing distance between them. Liv (a Keeper in training) has come to town to study with Marian and a friendship grows between her and Ethan. Believing that Ethan would be better off with another mortal Lena runs away with John Breed (an Incubus that can walk in daylight).
When Marian gives Ethan his Mother's Arclight he learns one of her secrets and discovers that the song in his head comes from his Mother not Lena. When he realizes that Sarafine is calling the Claiming Moon out of Time with Abraham's help he sets off to rescue Lena with the help of Liv, Link, Lucille (his Aunt's cat), Macon and surprisingly Ridley (who will risk everything to help them). But ultimately Lena will refuse to Choose her place in the Order of Things and will break the Order with dangerous consequences. Now Ridley must learn to live as a mortal girl and Link must deal with becoming an Incubus. Liv's "help" has ended her career as a "Keeper" so she must choose another path. And Ethan and Lena search for a way to stay together.
