My Thoughts: I loved this book! I say that a lot, because A: I love to read and, B: I don't read anything with out checking it out. And this book came Highly recommended!  I loved Max and Abby's relationship development during their dangerous journey. Abby is a great heroine and tough as nails despite all the hardships she's endured. The demon/monsters in this book are well thought up and creative. Its a little gory but awesome!

What I gave it :
5/5 Five outta Five because it left me impatiently awaiting the sequel! 

Where I got it:
I won this book on   G.P. CHING's 1000 follower Giveaway on Twitter. check her out on twitter @GPChing or on her blog at  http://genevieveching.blogspot.com/    
But what was really cool was Megan herself contacted me to send me my win via email and asked what form of ereader I had, and I was honest and told her I had yet to get one, all I've got is my laptop (I am not one of the cool kids yet) She was totally cool about it and offered to send me a real copy by mail. (I then had an Author crush on her for being so sweet lol :P) I got the book amazingly fast (2 days later) and not only was it a Speedy delivery IT WAS SIGNED! So now although a few have asked this book is now in my NEVER LOAN OUT  stack!

Who I reccomend it to:  Everyone!

No clue where I am going with this....

I have never blogged before!
I follow a few blogs, all book related, but to be honest I don't read posts all that often. I don't know what all my goals for this page are yet, so just bare with me. And PLEASE feel free to laugh at my mistakes (of which there are sure to be many) and then comment on them ... Help me make this a fun place for friends and fellow book lovers alike!
