I can't tell you how many book reviews I have missed to write about on this blog... I am so sorry to neglect you for so long.. but I feel like to write one now.... This book, guys... THIS BOOK IS SUPER SUPER SUPER AWESOME!!!!!
I FOUND A GEM!!!!!!!! and thanks to my friend, Atri who relentlessly recommended me this book.. this is super awesome!.. THANK YOU!!!
I LOVE THIS BOOOK SOOO MUCH!!!!I haven't read anything that kind of shocked and knocked me out of my chair as hard as this one!Great and Unexpected TWISTS! Amazing Characters! Superb Storyline! OH MY GOD!!!! I'm rolling on my bed wanting to have the second and the third book now! (already ordered them and their on their way now..... come now come nooowwwwww) Okay, to put it simple, this was the story about two boys named Nick and Alan Ryves.. They were brothers (okay okay no spoilers, I feel like I want to scream now)... and these two couldn't be anymore different, they were like two sides of a coin, but they loved and cared to each other so much... Alan was the good one who people loved and trusted and Nick was the evil one who people were scared of.... until came these two unexpected people, siblings named Mae and Jamie. Mae had been told that they should come to these two brothers if something paranormal happened which involved her brother, Jamie and a demon mark. Jamie had been marked by a demon which meant that he would be possessed, there were three stages of a demon mark and he was already on the last stage which meant hopeless to get rid off the demon mark. Nick didn't care whatsoever about them, He and his bro also his weird and detached mom had their own problem and currently on the run from magicians who seemed want to kill them coz something that her mother took a long time ago. But Alan was being a good hearted person he was, determined to help them. Nick who cared about his brother would follow through with his brother's wish, no matter how pissed he was. But then something went wrong, and in a way to save Jamie, his brother got a demon mark as well.. oh you can bet how angry Nick was.. He didn't care about anyone, anything, and willing to let people die as long as he could save his brother.. this was where the adventure began!!!! Dang I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH!ONE OF THE ULTIMATE BEST BOOK IN MY ENTIRE READING LIFE! The first half of this book was great, with some actions and then the second half was GREATER (if that even a proper english word), the twist that happened toward the end of the book literally knock me out of breath! I was speechless and breathless. I needed time to stand and jumped to calm myself down.. The only thing that at first bothered me was this book is told the story from the Third Person POV... It took me a lil bit time to get used to it first, but as the story progresses, it didn't bother me that much anymore.. MANNNNNN.... I WANT THE SECOND AND THIRD BOOK NOW!!!! *waiting patiently for Mr. Mailman to come and deliver me the books... I WILL DEVOUR IT FOR SURE!!!*
