#23 : Exclusive Review : The City of Worms (Everville #2)


BOOK TITLE: Everville: The City of Worms

AUTHOR:  Roy Huff
GENRE: Fiction - Paranormal
FORMAT: Digital (Word Doc)
HOW I GOT THIS BOOK: I proofread the book
Before I get to the Review: SPOILER ALERT!

The story picks off from the last book (The First Pillar (Everville #1)) - With Owen and Fron winning the first battle and Dante going to a vegetative state as an unexpected consequence. Owen's mission now seems to be fighting the evil Them who are determined more than ever before and repairing the breach.

The writer,as promised has answered as to why Owen and his friends were in first place were chosen to restore the balance between good and evil and repair the breach. Owen now clearly knows who his "Friends" and who his "Enemies" are. 
I can safely say the writer has matured since his last book. 

The story line essentially emphasizes on a very basic fact that our choices dictate the person who we really are - Good or Evil. The protagonists of this book seem to be delivering that message bang on.

The book ends with a magnificent battle as anticipated with Them and armies of Giants, Forn and Owen , where in Owen is forced to take a  major decision with a result of a new stronger and meaner enemy being born (I really don't want to give away any more details! Read the book!) 

The climax of the book really surprised me. It’s a perfectly unexpected twist for a plot that was near predictable till that twist came along.

Roy again has done a fantastic job in describing the City of Worms and the Battle. I was able to visualize the battle perfectly for the description was written passion. Worth being made into a movie (Though with a little more effects and twists to the plot!) 

VERDICT: Give it a read. Read the first in the series before this.
RATING: 4.2/5
