Series: The Demon's Lexicon, book one
Star Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
The bottom line: Action-packed, tender, and full of thrills, I loved The Demon's Lexicon--a great novel from Sarah Rees Brennan!
Nick and Alan Ryves have been on the run from magicians all their lives. Nick, the warrior, and Alan, the gentle soul, are interrupted in their tempestuous lives by Mae and Jamie Crawford, with disturbing news--James has been triple-marked by a demon. With that, their already crazy lives are turned upside down--and Nick learns that some secrets are better left alone.
What I enjoyed:
-Nick, and his strange way of doing things
-Alan, and his quiet desperation, and his altogether gentle soul
-Mae and Jamie
-The Goblin Market
-The frightening, seductive world that the boys live in
-The terrifying, cliffhanger ending--thank God I grabbed The Demon's Covenant!
-The action-packed prose
There was nothing I didn't love about The Demon's Lexicon--it was beautiful! Next on deck: The Demon's Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan!
