15-year-old Julie Richardson is about to learn that being the daughter of a witch isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. When she and her best friend, Marcus, witness an elderly lady jettisoned out the front door of her home, it’s pretty obvious to Julie there’s a supernatural connection.
In fact, there’s a whisper of menace behind increasing levels of poltergeist activity all over town. After a large-scale paranormal assault on Julie’s high school, her mother falls victim to the spell Endless Night. Now it’s a race against time to find out who is responsible or Julie won’t just lose her mother’s soul, she’ll lose her mother’s life. (Taken from NetGalley)
I heard a few people talking about this book on twitter and when I saw it on NetGalley, I jumped at the chance to request it and I was not disappointed.
From the first sentence I was hooked and read this book in just under a day. I was not putting this book down for anything, until I had finished it.
The characters present in this book was one of the many things that make this book so magical. Julie is am amazing characters and is brought to life inside the reader’s mind from the first page and who could not love Marcus every heroin needs a boy who will be by her side no matter what. Cummings did an excellent job with Julies mother even though she wasn’t a major character for the majority of the story however the reader gained valuable background information from her.
The only slight criticism that I have was the formatting of the ebook edition that I have. At times words and sentences were jumbled together which resulted in the book being almost unreadable at time and this slightly ruined my reading experience of the book.
This is the first book in a new series by Sean Cummings and if is off to an amazing start and I will certainly be looking out for the next book.
Overall this is an amazing book and even if you don’t read YA I recommend that you read this book. Poltergeeks is one of my favourite books of 2012 so far.
