By March of Owen Edmonds’s senior year, 11 students at Masonville High School have committed suicide. Owen tries to remain levelheaded - until he endures his own near-death experience and wakes to a distressing new reality. The people around him suddenly appear to be shackled and enslaved. Owen eventually arrives at a mind-bending conclusion: he’s not imagining the evil - everyone else is blind to its reality. Will he be able to convince anyone to believe him before it’s too late?

I was excited for this book. What I’d heard about it had me intrigued. I was so sadly disappointed at the whole tone of this book leaving me feel like the author slapped all the faces of family members who have lost someone in a shooting. Not to mention blame for such atrocities placing the blame on the supernatural rather then the murderer.

It is 1793 in France, the year of the guillotine. Already, Louis XVI has been sentenced to the scaffold, and Terror reigns. The architects of the Revolution (Marat, Danton, and Robespierre) have set up the Convention, an embryo parliament, designed to stem social chaos. But ideals topple in the face of political necessity, alliances founder, and intrigue is a way of life.

I was excited for this book knowing that I love Victor Hugo as an author. I was gravely disappointed with the narrator. It was extremely hard to keep up with the monotone reading and I had to keep going back because my mind drifted to other things as he read. I do not plan on getting anymore books Frederick Davidson read. I will encourage no one else to either.
