Sixteen year old Nick and his brother Alan are always ready to run Their father is dead and their mother is crazy she screams if Nick gets near her She’s no help in protecting any of them from the deadly I like this book but I think I'm prejudiced I mostly added it to my books so I could look at it and smile in its direction edited because on reflection I cannot be unbiased

The Demon's LexiconMagicians who use demons to work their magic The magicians want a charm that Nick’s mother stole and they want it badly enough to kill Alan is Nick’s partner in demon slaying and the only person he trus Wow This book really snuck up on me I wasn't sure at first because the writing seemed as though a lot had been cut out initially I didn't think I was getting the whole picture I honestly think that this book was not written for the YA market but it ended up as one because of the younger aged characters I felt as though the author might have been asked to edit some parts out to make it 'suitable' for younger readers and I felt that initially As CS Lewis has expressed I think that a good children's book is one that an older person will love just as much so I don't really agree with writing books 'younger' to make them fit into the YA genre So that feeling I had when I first started this book sort of threw me I have read Sarah Rees Brennan before a short story in The Eternal Kiss 13 Vampire Tales of Blood and Desire which I enjoyed immensely So I knew she was a good writer And the storyline of two brothers fighting demons and evil humans together called my name as a huge fan of the Supernatural TV series and the Cal Leandros books by Rob Thurman I was already excited to read this book So the beginning was so barebones I got a little worried I shouldn't have worried This turned out to be an excellent book So excellent that I really can't knock it down from five stars despite its shaky startMs Brennan took a story that seemed all laid out for the reader and gave it depths and twists that had me truly surprised I didn't expect what happened at all I had some ideas and uestions and then things fell into place I wondered about Nick how he was so different from Alan But I thought that maybe it was a matter of having of his mother in him Or maybe he was just wired differently from Alan I think that humans are so uniue we can't expect each person to react the same way to the same set of circumstances Even close siblings can be very different But the twist it makes senseThis is an edgy book and uite dark I think that Brennan can definitely bring it when it comes to this kind of storyline I don't assume that female writers don't know how to go there and writers like Brennan show women writers do have the chops to pull off this kind of book That sibling bond is the lynchpin of this story It takes what you think you know and you find you didn't know as much as you thought You think that you know what love is capable of but you don't have a clue People often find their views of the world shaken by the events that occur and from that point it's either adapt or die It's a leap of faith to walk through a dark twisted path with no light in the horizon But what choice do you have? Alan who's so seemingly frail in need of protection he will surprise you Nick who seems so strong and invulnerable he has a core of need that shows you that strength sometimes is an illusion maybe even a fallacy Because we can't be a lonely inviolate rock and survive in this world We need an anchor We need that tie of emotion to keep us grounded to keep us healthy sane alive Such is the case with Nick There's definitely some symbiosis between Alan and NickI'll add this series to my favorites about family and siblings because it captures so much that I love about this theme and so starkly and beautifully All the pieces fall into place and the resultant picture is worthy of than a second glance It stands up against scrutiny in all the ways that countAs far as the fantasy elements very well done Magicians eual sorcerers in this book Magic ties heavily into demonology The theme is inherently dark but it's not so dark that it makes for unpalatable reading But dark enough to be credible Along with the fantasy are the cautions that humans of any persuasion can appreciate Power comes at a cost Do we really want to pay that cost? Really? Power corrupts and destroys But love can change that prognosis in ways we never thought possibleYeah it's clear that I am a fan of this book I am highly recommending it to people who love the theme of brothers against the world fighting the bad guys real demons and their own emotional ones Other books with similar themes you might enjoyNightlife by Rob ThurmanChimera by Rob ThurmanThe Devil You Know by Felix CastorDead Witch Walking by Kim HarrisonMark of the Demon by Diana Rowland
