Cruel Beauty - Rosamund Hodge

This is not a bad book, but something has been bothering me since the beginning:  Why on earth did Nyx's father go through with Ignifex's bargain knowing that a.) he wasn't going to get a son out of it, which was his major draw in making the bargain to begin with and that b.) someone (a member of his immediate family) would die from it?

 

I also don't really get the focus on calling out Nyx's father and aunt's relationship.
