Book Review: Sympathy for the Devil

Sympathy for the Devil, by Justin Gustainis

Senator Howard Stark has been possessed by a demon who wants to be the next President of the United States, and begins removing the competition by any means necessary. If he makes it to the White House, humanity will suffer by apocalyptic proportions. When supernatural investigator Quincey Morris and his partner Libby Chastain discover the conspiracy, the two will try to exorcise the demon and will have to side with a rivaling faction of demons to bring down the evil within Stark.

This is the third installment in the Morris and Chastain Investigation series. Though. more than half of the novel doesn’t actually revolve around Morris and Chastain. It centers on the Senator Stark conspiracy and the resulting fallout. The result is the feel of a political thriller meets urban fantasy in this latest release. Dark, suspenseful, with plenty of surprising twists, the story was completely engaging and hard to put down. And the characters are complex and gritty. Gustainis never fails to entertain.

Book Review: The Power of Six

The Power of Six, by Pittacus Lore

John Smith (Number Four) narrowly escaped the death in Paradise, Ohio. Now, on the run with Sam and Number Six, the trio must find the rest of the remaining six of nine alien survivors in order to fight the impending invasion. Meanwhile, Number Seven is hiding out in Spain, but the Magadorians are closing in. And her protector seems to have turned her back on their past and purpose.

Picking up right after I am Number Four left off, this sequel revolves mainly around two characters: John Smith again and Marina (Number Seven). John, Sam, and Six become closer as they travel across America, which leads to an obvious and awkward love triangle. We get to learn more about Six and her tortured past. And we’re also introduced to the young and sheltered Marina, who has been hiding out all over Europe, but has been living in Spain in an orphanage a bit too long. With her protector in denial, Marina doesn’t know who she can trust now. But she knows she has to leave as soon as possible.

I thoroughly enjoyed I am Number Four; and was surprised that this second installment was even more intense and action-packed than the first. Filled with shocking twists and surprises around every corner, the story was riveting. With interesting characters that are easy to care about and a complex and engaging story, this science fiction, action thriller for young adults is pure fun and excitement.
