My review:

One of my favorite things when I am reading a book is when an author can actually catch me off guard or surprise me. DC definitely threw me for a loop with this book. I am really not a YA book lover as a rule. I read them if the plot intrigues me, but more often than not, I never make it through due to angst. I can not stand angst. Even though I read the Twilight Series, angst is a big no-no for me. Well, no angst here(well a little, but tolerable). I was really wrapped up in this story. It had just enough violence to keep my attention and a heck of a plot. The characters, especially the twins, were well developed and totally relatable. Cuspian builds a slow, meticulous momentum and totally delivers. I really liked the integration of mythology and the dueling POVs of the characters. As a debut novel DC really hits it out of the park in my opinion. If you dig fantasy, suspense and paranormal like me you will totally love this book. Just don’t start reading it when you need to get up early the next morning.


DC Hall is obsessed with argyle socks, the smell of books and believes he is the smartest person in the room. Granted he’s usually alone when he thinks this but it still feels good. When his nose isn’t stuck in a book, DC is usually writing or trying to teach his dog, Brooklyn, how to wash dishes (success remains elusive.) DC is from the south where the teas are sweet, distance is measured in minutes—not miles, and the skies are always Carolina blue.
