This book was alright. I honestly expected less, but there were some things about it that made me keep reading it. In this installment, John is now looking for "Nobody." This is the demon that he talked to on the phone at the end of the last book, Mr. Monster. Since both demons he has encountered have been totally different, he's not sure what he's even looking for.

Then the killings start again. People that are in positions of power, (school teachers, clergymen, police officers) are being brutally murdered and John thinks there is another demon, (Nobody) that is looking for him and trying to send him a message. Then there is another strange happening that popular girls in school are all of a sudden for no apparent reason committing suicide. He can't figure out if these two things are connected and if they are, how and why.

What I did like about this book is that John actually gets a girlfriend. You get to see that John does have a good heart. He gets close to Marci, and he's doing everything he can to keep the community safe.

I did like the way the trilogy ended, but it makes me wonder if it is indeed a trilogy, because it is left wide open for another book if the author chooses to do so.

Kim Smiley I'm excited to re-read that book. Once christmas is over I have to go in the basement and dig it out of the Rubbermaid container my books are in. I'm excited to re-read it. It was before I was even on this site so it'll be cool to actually write a review this time around!
