Book 4: The Demon's Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan2011 Books
I have been putting off writing this post (and therefore letting other book reviews pile up) for OVER A MONTH, so now I'm just forcing myself to get on with it. There are two reasons why I was procrastinating: 1. THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD I can't even figure out what to say about it. And 2. There's basically nothing at all I can say about the plot that won't give away MAJOR twists in the first of the series, and I really really don't want to do that.
So! Let's just say that anything else will have a hard time knocking this out of the "best book I read this year" slot (although since book three is coming out in June, I guess that has a chance). It's virtually perfect. It's perhaps even better than the first book. If you have any interest at all in urban fantasy, you must read these immediately. NOW. I have a list of reasons to read The Demon's Lexicon here, and they all hold up for the second book as well. This one is from the point of view of a different character, which was slightly disconcerting at first, but I ended up loving her narration and the character herself. And the Ryves brothers are up there on my list of favorite fictional brothers, right at the top with the Salvatores and the Winchesters.
No, seriously. I know I'm not actually saying anything here, but I really don't want to ruin anything about the plot. Just. GO READ THESE BOOKS.Posted by Kat at February 19, 2011 12:35 PM
