Firstly id like to thank J.G. Gill for giving me this book in exchange for a honest review
This story started off really good but right about the time she is attacked by giant eels the story takes a turn to strangeville and not in a good way. Considering it took me a lot longer to read then it normally does is a testament to how I just couldn't get into the book.
Clare is a 16 year girl and one afternoon she comes home after school to find her house trashed the word RUN written in what looks to be blood on a mirror. Soon Clare and her older brother Bede find out that not only has Bede been accused of killing their father but that their stepmother Arlene has been lying to them from the first moment she met their father. Oh and they also discover that they aren't entirely human and that Clare may just be the ticket for an ancient being to destroy a world no body knew existed.
The story is told from several points of view while Clare and Bede first hide from the police then try to find each other after being separated all while trying to escape and avoid a man named Demarge and people who work for him, as well as finding help from new friends and realizing old ones aren't so loyal.
