Reeling from a terrible accident that claimed the lives of his parents, Felix arrives at Portland College hoping only to survive the experience. In time, however, his reality star roommate shows him there is more to higher education than just classes, shared bathrooms and bad dorm food, and Felix gradually dares to believe he can put his past behind him. But a fateful storm looms on the horizon: In the nearby woods, two hikers become the latest victims in a series of gruesome murders; a disfigured giant embarks on a vicious cross-country rampage, killing teenagers who fail his 'test'; and an ancient society of assassins tasked with eradicating the wielders of a mysterious source of power awakens after a long silence. Only one man--the school's groundskeeper--knows that the seemingly unrelated events are connected, and that an eighteen-year-old boy stands in the center of the storm.

I received this book for free from the publisher or author in exchange for an honest review.

Whew, sometimes reading a book just feels like running a marathon. Even though this is a long book, I don’t have all that much to say about it to be honest. I did enjoy it, despite its flaws.

Going into this book, I honestly didn’t really know what to expect. What I got was pretty good. This book was pretty fast paced, it had enjoyable characters and I was creeped out more than once. I think the main problem with this book for me was the length. There were a lot of things that seem irrelevant to the story. In my opinion, this book could really use a good editor that can help shorten the story a bit. And while some parts were too long, some went too fast. Like I said, an editor could really help the story along.

The characters overall were pretty enjoyable and I liked most of them. I liked Felix, the main character, his roommate and the groundskeeper, though it took me a bit to warm up to them. I loved Allison tough. she was great. And the villains too.

Overall this was a pretty entertaining read, though maybe a bit too long. I do think you should check it out if you’re interested after reading the blurb and the length doesn’t scare you off.
