really liked it
bookshelves: love

It is very difficult to find something "different" among magicians, demons and hunters in YA scenario, but Sarah did it very well. I love the universe she has created and the way it is described, I love the dialogue and the surprises (in the last 30 pages left me with mymouth open). I did not see it coming and the outcome hit me like a train and and I enjoyed with a smile. Even now I smile tenderly when I remember the siblings feelings between Nick and Alan

“Fear's useless. Either something bad happens or it doesn't: If it doesn't, you've wasted time being afraid, and if it does, you've wasted time that you could have spent sharpening your weapons.”

“Nick could see the gun shaking in Alan's hand now, in tight, terrified spasms. "Last night we put a magician in the river," Alan said, his voice low and intense as if he was making a promise."Maybe we should send you to join him."
"You know the rules," the woman whispered. "Don't shoot the messenger."
Nick interrupted, leaning down to speak in her ear. "Do they say 'Don't cut the messenger in half with your great big sword'?”
