So, I ventured away from the typical reading I was doing before and went into the other kind of reading I’m very much in to; Paranormal, Supernatural, and the unexplainable. I honestly had never heard of this book until I saw a preview for the movie that is coming out in September 2016. After seeing the preview, I felt the utter need to read the book! Boy, am I glad I did. This book is superb! It’s told in one point of view with the main character being Jacob.
This book is full of action and adventure, but also makes you use your head and think. It’s great when you read a book and have the book “pull one off on you”. There were twists and turns that I didn’t see coming. It was overall just a wonderful read.
Totally give this book 5 stars! Can’t wait to read the next installment in this series! (I checked it out today!) 🙂
