The main characters are Obie, Berto, and Kyle. They are believable characters in some ways, because they are given careers that we would normally see in the everyday life. A rock star, an actor, a painter. But they are not normal because they can turn into mist. Though I don't really like the whole part of if they kiss anyone they are basically sucking their soul from their body or their life essence out. In the story is that when Obie was a little baby, his mother saved his life by committing him to the Four of Legend. I think this book should be read by people who like supernatural powers within the story. I thought the book was pretty good, and I look forward to reading the other books.
Admittedly the writing is kinda choppy as it has been in some of Lynne Ewing's other books, but it's interesting to see the same universe as her previous series taken from a different perspective. That's what made The Sacrifice so good. Boys sure think differently than girls, don't they?
I like the main character, Obie. Like Vanessa in DoTM, he sets the story into motion without seeming like an idiot. The boys of SoTD seem to know what they're doing a lot more that the girls of DoTM.
It starts out with your average teenage boy, or so you may think.
Obie isn't just any teenage boy, he comes from the third century of our earth and was part of a people called the Visigoths. Obie can't stand where he is and the only realease he seems to have is music. He plays in a band with guys much older than him but, he doesn't care.
He takes a specail intrest in Alison a girl that has it all, the popularity, the friends, and the star football player.
In the end Obie finds out who killed his father and he has been seeking revenge every since. He was inslaved a alternate dimentio called Nefandus and thats where he was made imortal.
Obie and his friends set off to destroy the one that murdered his father.
Read and find out...
This book was easy reading and I couldn't ever put it down. The story is so unique and theres so much to it you think that you'll never get it but the infromation fits together so perfectly and it makes you root for the heros.
I really enjoyed this book and I definately recoment it thats why I give it five out of five stars.
At first when I started the book I thought it would be all about a teenage outcast trying to fit in at a new highschool.
Soon I found that it was not the case.
I absolutely love the way she uses a totally realistic teenage life senario and adds her dose of gothic fantasy.
Obbie, the main character, is one of the Sons of Dark in a ancient legend. He is also the historically oldest of the group.
This book is all about his life.
Known throughout highschool as a 'loner' he is also apart of a band, finding that music is the only real escape from this time.
As the book progresses, we find out that he will remain the same age forever, he is eternal, moving around when he graduated from highschool and then going to another, imagine stuck in highschool forever.
As strange and mysterious events are put into place, he finds out the truth of his father murder and knows he must avenge his death...what will befall this mysterious youth and his gothic adventure...
You find out...
