High in his attic bedroom, 12-year-old David mourns the loss of his mother. He is angry and he is alone, with only the books on his shelf for company.But those books have begun to whisper to him in the darkness, and as he takes refuge in the myths and fairytales so beloved of his dead mother, he finds that the real world and the fantasy world have begun to meld. The Crooked Man has come, with his mocking smile and his enigmatic words: "Welcome, your majesty. All hail the new king."
I would recommend this book the story was good. It moved at a good pace. The narrator did such a good job that I didn't notice it was one person reading the different characters.
In a posh suburb of the nation's capital, at the most exclusive high school in the world, the vampires who secretly run the government have created a game for America's daughters of privilege. Show up to Homecoming in a black dress and you've entered yourself in a contest where the winner lives forever, and the loser becomes the winner's first victim. Only the wealthiest, most connected students can hope to win, so when new girl Nicky Bloom wears a black dress to Homecoming, everyone assumes she has a death wish.
I dislike cliff hanger endings!!
The story is slow to start. This is something that I can understand... 1st book in a series and all. However just as the book finally starts to give you action it ends. I won't be buying the next book, you failed to hook me.
For Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD, the job is a useful reminder of what she has to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke's big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it’s a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood. Other couples aren’t as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying on the floor of their Downing Street apartment, stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned - and even more heartbroken by the overwhelming evidence that they were murdered by their own son.
some very touching parts in this book.
some very sad and sick part also.
