Hey all! I hope everyone had a safe and Happy New Year. I know I did! I just finished reading "Misfit" by Jon Skovron. This book was excellent. The plot moved right along, and it had just enough details.
I really enjoyed the plot of the story as a whole and love that it didn't stall out in some parts of the book. Skovron kept the book moving right along, and it was truly an original. I loved how he Incorporated names and events from demon lore into his book, but used them in such a way that he made it his own. The details were great too. He added just the right amount so that the reader still had the ability to dream up pictures in there mind. As opposed to say adding pictures into the book, or putting in so many details that every reader gets the exact same image. I'm sure my mental picture of Jael's uncle Dagon would be slightly different from another reader, but not so far off that it takes away from the picture Skovron was painting.
I am currently reading "It's so Easy and other lies" by Duff McKagen and I'm going to be starting "The Fire" by James Patterson which is the third book in his Witch and Wizard Series.
Update (1/6/2012): I was thinking more about this book and I just wanted to add that Skovron did a wonderful job with the ending. He wrapped up all the loose ends for this particular book but wrote it in such a way that he could write a sequel if he wanted to in the future. However this book wasn't written in such a way that this was defiantly just a setup for a second book like some of the other ones I read last year. It was a terrific book, and I would defiantly read a sequel if he wrote one.
