Justin Wells has a less than perfect life. His parents have recently divorced and he is living with his dad, who does nothing but watch TV all day. They've moved into a house that is falling apart around them. Worst of all, he is attending a new high school, where everyone treats him like an outcast.My Thoughts: Dark, creepy and thoroughly entertaining. D.H. Sayer has crafted a bad guy to rival the best monsters out there. How do you hide from something that can find you anywhere? How do you protect yourself when the next attack could come from any direction? It's a chilling thought. And a bloody one, as Justin and his friends found out.
Things don't get any easier for him when he becomes interested in Sarah Ellis, girlfriend of all-star hockey player Brandon Tate, a quick-tempered bully who soon has it out for Justin.
Right when Justin is starting to make friends and his life is incrementally improving, an ancient and mysterious entity is unleashed on the sleepy New England town. After a few suspicious deaths, it becomes apparent that something is going on a killing spree... something that can only be seen in mirrors.
As the bodies start piling up around them, Justin and his new friends have to figure out how to stop this terrible force before it picks them off one by one.
I liked the dynamic between Justin and Sarah. I liked that she got to be herself with him instead of just the girlfriend of the #1 hockey player. Speaking of which, Brandon's a real piece of work. Totally stalkerific in so many ways. You gotta respect a guy who won't take no for an answer. Wait. No, you don't.
I really liked the overall feel of this book. It was dark and brutal, bloody and creepy. The climactic ending could have been drawn out a bit more but they were really down to a bare minimum of people by the time the final showdown came, so I can see why it couldn't be drawn out. Still, I liked it. Blood and guts are so entertaining!
