It's a good book, recommended for ages 13+, as it is a little gruesome. It is an amazing story about a teenager by the name of Grubbs Grady, who returns from his aunt's home to find a demon and two of his familiars and his family killed. He then escapes unknowingly by using magic and is taking into Psychiatric care, then taken in by his uncle to find even more about the world and it's enemies.

So B It is one of the best books I have ever read. The book is about a girl a named Heidi living with her mentally disabled mother who can't take care of her daughter or herself. Long ago Heidi and her mother arrived at a lady's doorsteps that lady's name was Bernadette she took them under her wing. Her mother only knew 23 words common words exepct for one, Soof. Heidi feels that she needs to find out what that word means so she goes on a misson to find out. A great book for 6-9 grade. I give it 5 stars.

Rick Riordan has done it again!
He has started yet another serious of mythology, and this time, even combining Roman mythology. Using new characters and past characters, he has created a good, heart-racing plot that will be continued throughout the series. The way he finishes his book, makes you want to read on, and never stop. And the way he finishes his book makes you want to die for the next book. This was, one of the few books that have really taken me over, and it is one of my favorite books.
