Read from August 02 to 18, 2011

This is a very interesting fantasy novel. The author includes many twists to keep the reader on the edge of his/her seat. The ending is not predictable at all-a little unexpected. The reader will enjoy getting to know the characters and watching their progress and growth in the novel; there are a few sudden character development traits that might leave the reader a little confused for a few seconds, but it doesn't detract much from the story.

Savannah is the main character. She has very "negative" parents to say the least, they both practiced bad magic. They even perform human sacrifice rituals that will leave the reader with a bad taste in his/her mouth. They don't appear to care for Savannah much at all-she is kept in a cage in parts of the book. Savannah escapes at age 9, wandering to a home that she believes is safe. She is taken in, but she still has trust issues. The reader sees her story truly take off at age 15, where all the trouble starts when Savannah accidentally releases a demon.

This book is fast-paced and fun to read. Savannah is an intriguing main character, she will keep the reader paying attention. The secondary characters are just as exciting to get to know-some in a bad way, most good. The reader will have a fairly easy time getting into the story and staying there. This book is recommended to fantasy readers.
