Book

Sixteen-year-old Nick and his brother, Alan, are always ready to run. Their father is dead, and their mother is crazy—she screams if Nick gets near her. She’s no help in protecting any of them from the deadly magicians who use demons to work their magic. The magicians want a charm that Nick’s mother stole—and they want it badly enough to kill. Alan is Nick’s partner in demon slaying and the only person he trusts in the world. So things get very scary and very complicated when Nick begins to suspect that everything Alan has told him about their father, their mother, their past, and what they are doing is a complete lie. . . .

LetsTalk

I’ll admit it…when I found out The Demon’s Lexicon was this month’s #YAReadAlong book I screamed a little. As I’m sure all of you know by now, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Sarah Rees Brennan’s writing. Here’s the thing…I read the Lynburn Legacy before The Demon’s Lexicon and loved it, and if you asked me now I wouldn’t be able to say which series I liked better, but it wasn’t until I read The Demon’s Lexicon that I completely fell of the edge into Sarah Rees Brennan love. I blame my weakness for sibling relationships. Also, SRB’s dialogue and characterization are a breath of fresh air, and the book ends with one of my favorite plot twists ever.
