REVIEW:
First a big Thanks to my friend Roy Huff & the writer of this book for gifting me this book! I finally managed to finish reading this book amidst a lot of disturbances (Read: Travel & Being stuck in a small town with bad connectivity)

The title itself is a little Intriguing. Thought I am little grown up to read books in Fantasy Genre, I decided to read the book anyway thanks to Intriguing title & the description.

The plot revolves around three friends Owen, Anika & Dante and their battle against the evil Them to save Everville. Owen is transported to a place called Everville from Easton Falls where he meets The Keeper of lands (A Fron) who kind of explains (Read the book! You will know what "Kind of explains means! I don't want to provide spoilers) who the evil Them are and what they are up to and what is to expected of Owen. How he manages to  temporarily stop Them using some training from the Art Club Roundabout ( annual contest held by the Art Club headed by a professor who then turns out to be a different person then I initially believed he was)  and with the help of The Echo club (Owen's college club ) is the story.

Initially I felt a little lost. But as pages go by the story line becomes a little clearer. The description of the college campus, The Keeper's room, Everville is realistic and well portrayed. The writer does have a good imagination.

So what I liked about the book?!
Basic plot, the character sketch!

What could have been a little better?!
Cohesiveness. The narration slipped at times and really was beautiful at times. Other than that I have no complaints.

VERDICT: Read it only if you are a paranormal fiction fan. Else the book might not really make sense to you.
RATING: 4/5
