Please note that everything you read below is just my personal opinion. I do not know everything. Nor would I want to. Please also keep in mind, I do not Promote, Support, or Respond to Negative Commentary.

Please note: I was unable to find another picture that showed tribute to the Iconic Dr. Seuss. His name is Trade Marked, and I am just writing a review. I do not plan on taking his Name. Thank you for reading!!

Author/Recognizability:

-Dr. Seuss.  His real name is Theodor Seuss Geisel.  I say Is because Dr. Seuss is alive in all our hearts. And every Christmas. When we watch Home Alone and Home Alone 2!

Recognizability: One of the most well-known authors in all of history. He wrote so many books, and they all had a rhyming theme to them. Even now when people hear poems like it, they think of Dr. Seuss! Or at least I do.

Most iconic Books:

-He has a “few” Iconic Books. I will only be talking about my 4 favorites, however.

Like I said, just a “Few”. He wrote so many books, but I believe these are the most well known!!

Genres:

-Children’s books*. Fantasy. Magic. Fiction. Classics.

* This isn’t always true, though. Dr. Seuss actually wrote a few books for the adult genres as well. He kept with the same theme, but they are not made for children. That is why I included the Asterisk. <- This symbol *

Rating:

-10/10. I love this author. I started reading his books when I was 9 months old. Now, they were upside down, but I was still reading!!

Age Range:

-Author(s) Suggest: 6-9

-My Opinion: Now this happens to be another instance where I hate the Phrase “Age Range.” I have a much better “Range”. ¬†You listening?

I say ages 4+. You could be 120 years old and still love these books! I’m 19 and love to pick them up! So I guess we can say 4-120. And I say 120 because there are many people who live past 100. Only a few make it past 110. This is for them!

Basic Review/info:

-Who was Dr. Seuss? No. Who IS Dr. Seuss? Dr. Seuss is an American author, writer, illustrator, and publisher who died in 1991. (Now you know me, I am very family Oriented. So this next part sits just fine with me!) Dr. Suess only had 2 wives during his lifetime. Hist first wife died in ’67. Dr. Seuss was a widower for one year. Then in ’68 he married his second wife. They were married until His death in ’91. “Till Death do us Part.” Dr. Seuss really lived to that!

He is most well-known as a children’s book author. However, Dr. Seuss was much more than that. He was a cartoonist and an artist for many magazines after his college life. (He attended¬†both¬†Dartmouth and Oxford. Now THAT is a smart kid!!) He then went to be an animator for the United States Army during the World War 2 era. It was only after the war that he got started on his children’s books career. However, this wasn’t going to be his first time writing. Yes, he did magazines back in the day. His first book was published before the war. But it is not one of his most well known. Not even I knew about it for a long time.

His first book was Published in 1937. Its name is: And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street. I personally have not read this book. But I can only imagine it is an amazing book!

Truth be told, I firmly believe that Dr. Seuss rivals the great William Shakespeare. And that is really hard to do!!

Long Review of Books:

-Now that we have the basic information out of the way, let us start the reviews on my favorite 4 books!

Green Eggs and Ham:

green_eggs_and_ham This is one of the best books Dr. Seuss wrote. I’m not sure if you‚Äôve ever had Green Eggs and Ham, but it seems like an interesting meal. I‚Äôm guessing that the green egg is like the century egg. Basically black. *shudders*. Some people seems to like em. I don‚Äôt think I really would, though.¬† Fun fact real quick, though. Do you know how to pronounce Egg? ‚ÄúEh-g‚ÄĚ. Guess how I pronounce it? No takers? I don’t know why, but I have always pronounced it as ‚ÄúEai-g‚ÄĚ. I pronounce Leg the same way. It‚Äôs really 1: sad, and 2: annoying. Anyways‚Ķ

Also, green ham‚Ķ To me, that says mold is growing on it. And has been for a while! Call me crazy, But I don’t want to eat anything with mold on it. Granted, I love cheese‚Ķ And cheese is mold‚Ķ‚Ķ But I don’t like Moldy cheese. Like Blue cheese. That stuff makes me sick to my stomach‚Ķ I love Feta, though!¬† Alright, I‚Äôll get back to the review.

 The Cat in the Hat:

220px-seuss-cat-hat The most iconic book Dr. Seuss has ever written. Or in my opinion anyway. So let me ask you a question? What happens when your mother will not let you do ANYTHING!!? Well, you get bored. You want to break the rules. But you can’t. So your minds wanders. And that is where the cat in the hat came from. Yes, I know that’s not what the book says. But I am trying to say what would happen IRL.

Brother and sister had the same daydream about a cat that comes to save them from boring hell. And their pet fish learns how to talk. What kid wouldn’t love that?!

Most children don’t like it when their parents tell them that they are not allowed to do anything. My younger brother is an example. Or some of my closest friends. Either they have boundaries that they find a way around, or they have none at all. My brother and I have very strict boundaries. But i love it. It keeps me in check. There is no worse feeling than disappointing my mom. Now yes, I am not Perfect. I have broken the rules before. But when I do there is a serious guilt that lays on me. And I tell my mom almost immediately. But that is because I respect my mom. Sorry… off track again… I do that a lot. Damnit, sorry. You came here for a review!

Anyway, the boundaries thing. One of my buddies had lax boundaries. As such he ended up being really lonely. And he tried to kill himself. more than once too. We are no longer friends, but that is beside the point. What I am trying to say is that even though these two hate the boundaries, it really keeps them in check.

What do I mean by that? well, just read the book. Things get out of control. thing one and thing two go bonkers and make a huge mess. the Cat doesn’t know what to do. And the two kids are doing everything they can to make things right again! (Cat in the hat game for the P.C. was one of my favorites. I played that to death!!) Did anyone ever see the movie? HERE is the link to the IMDB page. Mike Myers played the Cat. He had this Purple goop that made a huge mess everywhere. he encouraged the kids to break the rules. Jump on the couch with dirty feet. Drive illegally. And disobey their mom.

But in the end, the kids pull their bootstraps up and fix the problem. They remove the goop from everywhere and get thing one and thing two back into check.

I love this book. Because, even though it is meant to be entertaining, it teaches a moral at the end. And Dr. Seuss tells the best Morals!

How the Grinch stole Christmas:

how-grinch-stole-christmas His second most Iconic book. Now up above I mentioned Home Alone and Home Alone 2. The reason for this is because the Animated movie was playing. Not the one with Jim Carry, But the original. And I love those two movies. SO FUNNY!!! But You’re not here for that. (I say something later on about that. Or did I say it up above? Either way…)

Who is the Grinch? And Evil hearted Goblin that hates everything that is happy or bright. Hang on, I’ll come back to this in just a moment->

I was reading up on Dr. Seuss and I saw something That caught my eye. Dr. Seuss wrote this book because of something that happened to him. It was during the prohibition, and his family‚Äôs brewery was shut down. And I think he was arrested? I didn’t click on the article, but i thought it was very interesting. You always think that an author (Fiction author) just has an amazing imagination. But it looks like their real life actually influences a lot of their writings. Now, is this true? I‚Äôm not sure. But if it is, then that explains how the grinch is so mad. Because Dr. Seuss was Mad. And I guess he found a way to move past this problem. Once again, No clue at all if it was true! If it was, then it is one helluva story! Back to the review.

He mistreats his dog, and that right there angers the hell out of me. There is n such thing as a bad dog. Just bad owners. Dogs (Not cats. Cats have their own agendas.) ooze out unconditional love. But I guess that’s why the grinch was such a jerk to his dog.

Every single year he hates the sounds of the happiness of Christmas. so this year he decides to go and steal the Christmas presents and food from everyone in the town below. Even the little crumb for the mouse!! Now he expects that this will be devastating for everyone in the town and can’t wait to hear their cries of agony.

And then he hears something unexpected. Singing. Why? Wouldn‚Äôt you be so pissed off is everything you worked so hard for what taken away from you? well, they don’t. In fact, it doesn’t seem to bother them at all. Why? It is because the grinch failed to take away the one thing more important than material goods. Family. All of a sudden, the Grinches heart seems to stutter.

Yes, he’s having a hear attack. of sorts anyway. His heart is growing. Basically from a peanut to an orange. or something like that. But right then, The grinch learned how to be happy. And how to sing. and how to Love.

So he got back on his sleigh and rode the presents to everyone in the town. And at the end of the book, he is singing too.

Oh the places you’ll go!: 

thecuriousg-seuss-the-places-youll-go One of my favorites because it tells you never to give up. How do I mean? Well, I am talking about is the moral of this story. You can’t just wait around for something to happen. Life isn’t a game. The best way I can put this is to describe and use two of my favorite games.

Pokemon vs Skyrim.

In Pokemon, you can’t just wait around for rings to happen. If you just sit there, life won’t continue.¬† You want to be the very best and catch them all? Then YOU have to get out there and do something about it! You want to go and travel the seas? See things you never get to? Then GO! Stop waiting for things to happen and make them happen!

In Skyrim, it is some of the same deal, but better explained. If you just sit around and wait, nothing will happen. Life will continue around you. You may see a bear or two come in front of you, but you will never get to destroy the dragons just sitting there.

Are you not a gamer? Then here is the best possible explanation I can give you.

A river. Let’s say that we are all either fish, or leaves, and bugs, or even a piece of bark flowing by. You could even be a frog! But there are bumps along the way. A little cove that traps the water and you. A rock that blocks your vision. Someone who forces you into a corner and leaves you there. What are you going to do?

In this book, we are told to get up, get moving, and live life! Where do you want to go? In the river: You are whatever of those things I listed. You want to get to the Amazon river and you are stuck in the Mississippi river in a cover of constantly swirling water. What are you going to do? Just swim there and wait to die? Or are you going to find a way out of your mess? Get back into the flow of the river? and make your way to the Amazon. or the Nile. Or even the open Ocean!

That is what this book is about. Living your life. And not letting anyone take it away from you!!

So what are The Morals that Dr. Seuss left in these books?¬†‚Üď

Green eggs and ham:¬†Don’t be afraid to try new things. You may enjoy them!

Cat in the hat: Respect your boundaries. But at the same time, Have fun.

Oh the Places you’ll go:¬†Don’t sit around and wait for life to end. Go! Live your life!

How the grinch stole Christmas:¬†Don’t let anger and hatred Fester. We each can move past it! And you will be a happier and better person because of it. ¬†(I did this recently. I made peace with one of the people that made my life a living hell. And I am a much happier person!)

The second moral is that Family is forever. No material good can replace that. Eventually, even Diamonds will fade away. But Family never does.

2 other Morals:

Sneeches: No matter what everyone looks like, including yourself, We can be all accepting. There is no reason why someone with different coloration or marks means they suck. Learn to accept everyone.

Horton hears a who:¬†Everyone, no matter how small and insignificant, deserves a voice and a life. You know what I attribute this one to? Bees. Now, I am deathly allergic to bees and I am terrified of them. But I love honey. I used to stomp on them when I was younger because I was afraid they’d sting me. (I was traumatized by a nest of hornets. Just another stupid thing I did as a kid.) Now I just run away!!

Would Recommend Books by Author?

-Yes. He really knew how to get these Iconic books into your head. And they will never fail!!

Reason Chosen?

-Because he is an Amazing Author. And he rivals William Shakespeare! Look, I am a biased reader. Also “Author”. I say Author because, I am the only person on this blog. But this is My Library! It is how I feel! ¬†My mom has a picture of me reading Dr. Seuss’s book upside down when I was 9 months old!! His books will always hold a special place in my heart! (If I could find the picture in our basement I would include it in here. My mom may know which bin of memorabilia it is in, but I highly doubt it.

Could you let me know what you thought about this? Talking about the author and my favorite books they have written? I rather enjoyed it!

Thanks for readin!

Twilight-Review/Series Review

Bella Swan is just a normal girl. That is until she sees a boy staring at her. Something about his eyes makes her feel different. And so she starts down the path of no Return… Towards her Bloodsucker.

Please note that everything you read below is just my personal opinion. I do not know everything. Nor would I want to. I will not respond to negative comments. 

The following character | is used to separate book from series. It will be in a bright green color.

Title/Author:

Twilight. Stephanie Meyer. |  Series.

Age Range:

-My Opinion: I agree with the 15+ for the first three books. But book 4 is a 17+ in my eyes. Due to some mature themes in this book.

Basic Review:

-Bella Swan is just a normal girl. She hates the rain and moved to the wettest area in the United States. Her dad is a cop, and her school life is normal.  That is until she sees a boy staring at her. Something about his eyes makes her feel different. And so she starts down the path of no Return. Towards her Bloodsucker.

Long Review:

-So we are back! About 3 months ago (roughly) I did a review on Breaking Dawn. The plan was to do a series review not soon after. Then I remembered how much I loved the first book as well. (Not near as much as book 4 however. Book 4 was the bomb!) I figured it would be confusing having two titles that both say Twilight Review! So, I combined them into one review. Might as well.

So, Let us start!

Bella Swan. Who is she? Well to start, she is the only person in Arizona that is able to get sunburned. Her skin is as white as a Catfish’s belly. Which is really white! (I’ll include a link to a picture. I don’t exactly have one on hand.) She is also one of those people who prefer not to socialize at all. Like a Hermit, but on a different level. (Could be higher or lower. You decide.)

When we first meet her she is on her way to the wettest part of the United States. Seattle. And Bella hates the rain. But I think she may hate the hot more. Her mom and dad just couldn’t make it work. Her mom remarried, and her dad married his job. (He is a cop). Anyways, Something happened in Arizona that made her want to move. Not that that is the worst thing. Moving can be a good experience. And in Bella’s case, It is!

When Bella starts attending school, she makes friends and enemies. And she appears to have attracted the attention of a certain boy. Perfect teeth, White skin (Like hers, but it looks like ivory), Tall, Handsom, A family that looks just like him, And a voice that can make even the Birds swoon. Bella finds herself trapped. She wants to get to know him, But something is warning her to stay away.

One day, in the parking lot, she is standing next to her truck. And she sees Him staring at her. Little does she know, he was about to panic… All of a sudden, a truck loses control and is barreling towards her. She sees her life end before her life. Her only regret? That she didn’t get to meet the mysterious boy. And it goes black.

Then she opens her eyes and sees the boy standing over her. But that is not possible, as he was on the opposite end of the parking lot. Not even Usain Bolt could’ve made it to her so fast. And what’s else? There is a dent in the truck (van?) that would’ve crushed her. ¬†It is this, and much more that start her down the path she was always meant to be on.

We are onto book 2. Bella and Edward are dating. But something is wrong. He can’t seem¬†to keep her safe. Cause her best friend is his sworn enemy. And then something happens. The Cullens are forced to leave. Their presence disappears completely. The house is in shambles. Charslie’s practice is gone. Edward and his family no longer attend school. And Bella’s heart is shattered.

Because of this problem (That Edward did NOT see coming…. Or even Alice for that matter), Bella enters a state of severe depression. For almost 6 months (from October till about March, If I remember correctly…) she became a hermit. Unable to eat. Crying herself to sleep. And repeating it all over again. Charlie decides it is time to intervene. And then Jacob re-enters her life.

All of a Sudden, she is alive again. Her best friend is back. And she is happy. They go out and ride on his motorcycle, Hang with his buddies, and have no care for what they are doing. And then Bella guesses what disease Jacob and his buddies had. And it was no disease, but a curse. But Bella isn’t dumb. She sees right through his facade. I mean, she guessed Edward was a Vampire, didn’t she?

Now let’s talk about Alice for just a minute. She has¬†visions¬†to where she can see into The future. However, this only works for certain people. It is revealed in book 4 (Breaking Dawn) that she cannot see the future Bella’s baby. Nor can she see any of the wolves futures. This is due to the¬†amount¬†of¬†chromosomes¬†that they have.¬†Time for science!!

Now, I am not all too great with science. In fact, it is one of the classes I almost always fail.¬†Except for archaeology. For some reason I understand it. But that’s a story for another date! Anywhosers…

Humans are born with 23 pairs of¬†chromosomes. This adds up to 46.¬†“What am I? An idiot? I know how to add numbers.”¬†Look, I’m not trying to insult you. I’m just doing some basic math calculations. Vampires¬†have¬†25 pairs which¬†adds¬†up to 50. Now werewolves have 24 pairs. Carlisle reveals this fact when he took blood from Jacob in book 3. When he was passed out in the forest. (I’ll continue that in a few mins.)

Alice says that she cannot see with Bella’s child around. Or even the child located in her womb! As such, Alice gets incredibly horrible¬†Migraines. (I get bad¬†migraines. They really suck!) This is where Alice and Jacob form a bond. Granted, they basically become family later in book 4, so why not?! Ok, back to book 2.

Alice sees a vision of Bella jumping into the ocean. (It is called Base Jumping. 100-200ft tall cliffs into the ocean. The tricks people can do on them is awesome! But extremely Dangerous. Can be very fatal. Like falling onto Concrete.) Alice tells Edward, Edward calls Charlie (Jacob answers the Phone), Asks where Charlie is, Jacob says at the Funeral, Edward hangs up, and Alice shows up. Long story short, Edward hears an Incomplete Vision from Alice, Gets the wrong information, and tries to kill himself.

This book is quite the emotional rollercoaster!

Book three… The Newborn crisis.

Ok, the book is actually titled Eclipse, but I think that “The Newborn Crisis” sounds a lot cooler. But, I guess in order to stay with the theme, Stephanie chose Eclipse.

Now, what is a newborn? Contrary to popular Belief, we are not talking about newborn babies. Though, in a way that is not totally wrong. We are talking about newborn Vampires. *SPOILER* Bella becomes a newborn vampire in book 4. Though, She is more stable than the monsters everyone else Becomes. *END SPOILER* They are already crazy and go out of control whenever they get a hint of blood a mile or two near them.

Newborns are also incredibly strong. Imagine an 18 wheeler barreling towards to at 90 MPH. Scary, right? Well, that is just one punch they can throw. And when they get any blood, well, You’re gonna wish you were never born. Cause they will devour you!!

Which happens to be the reason why the Wolves and the Vampires band together for the first time in History!! Least, that is what we are told. And guess what? It doesn’t stop there. Due to what happens in book 4, the wolves and vampires become family. (If you can’t tell, I really like book 4. The Absolute best book of the series!!)

Needless to say, Neither side likes this. Only Bella is happy. And Edward is trying to be happy, just for her. There are fights that break out, and they might have just given up right there. But Bella reminds them of something. If they don’t band together and take care of the Newborns, the newborns will end of killing everyone. The vampires, the wolves, and the innocent humans.

What would you do?¬†(Go to the comments and tell me what you would do. Just for the Halibut!)¬†I’d pull up my bootstraps, shut the hell up, and get it over with. And maybe make a friend or two. Like Seth Clearwater did!!

Breaking dawn. Now I already did a review on this one, so… I’ll just cover the basics. Follow the link to that review¬†Here.

So, the basics: Bella and Edward get married, Bella gets pregnant and gives birth within a month’s time, Jacob has a fight with Sam and leaves the Pack, Jacob falls in love with Bella’s child, Other wolves come and join Jacob’s “Pack”, and the Vampire government comes to kill everyone. I basically just explained the whole book. I think I gave more information here than I did in the Actual review!! Oh well. ¬† ¬†¬†šĻĀŗĽí( Õí ‚Ćā Õí )ŗ•≠„ĄŹ

Would Recommend?

-Yes on Both. ¬† ¬†This is a special review¬†because I felt like doing both at once. If you don’t like it, Well… It’s Too late. Cause you read this far. ¬† ¬† ¬† Šēē( ’ě Šóú ’ě )Šēó

Thanks for readin!

-Jack

I have a question for you!

-Did I give enough Info? For my reviews, I try to aim for a minimum of 500 words. Give or take 20. Usually take 20. Every once and a while I manage to get 750 words or so. And then once in a blue moon, I get over 1,000 Words. Like today. I reached almost 1,700 words. So let me know, did I do good? Or my Harry Potter Review! I think it was like 1,800?

The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel-Review

Nicholas Flamel was the Keeper of the Sorcerer’s Stone. But how did he get to be Immortal? And is it something anyone can Achieve? Nicholas Flamel and his wife take two young teens on an adventure they’ll never ever forget. “For there is Magic in us All.”

Hi there Y’all! I promised to a special review for making it so far into my 2.5 k word review on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Well, here it is!

61podklibil-_sx327_bo1204203200_

Title/Author:

The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel. Michael Scott.

Times Read:

-2

Genre:

-Fiction, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Magic, Suspense, and a nail-biting Page Turner.

Rating:

-10/10 will recommend to all Harry Potter fans.

Age Range:

-Author(s) Suggest: 10+

-My Opinion:¬†Around the age of 12 is a good start. I recommend¬†reading the first books of Harry Potter. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Nicholas Flamel makes an appearance¬†in said book, and you get some background about him. Rather than just jumping into this series and expecting everything to be all hunky-dory.

 

Basic Review:

-Nicholas Flamel was the Keeper of the Sorcerer’s Stone. But how did he get to be Immortal? And is it something anyone can Achieve? Nicholas Flamel and his wife take two young teens on an adventure they’ll never ever forget. “For there is Magic in us All.” <- I don’t really know if anyone has ever said that. But I just did…. ¬†Anyways, read on to find out more. ¬†Oh, and this is another conversation (I keep telling Y’all that’s how I write.) so be prepared.

Long Review:

-Who is Nicholas Flamel? Well, he is immortal and was the keeper of the Sorcerer’s Stone that Harry Potter now owns. But do you know anything else? Come on, Tell me……. Do it or I won’t continue the review.¬†“Well, he is married to Joan of Ark.” Now how did you know that?! Oh, you read ahead. Well, you can just sit there with your mouth shut and let the others guess.¬†“He made that Appearance¬†in Harry Potter!” I just said that… Someone say something else. Please…¬†“Wasn’t he the Alchemyst who claimed that you could turn Lead and other metals into Gold?”¬†Finally, someone who says something that is almost correct! And I like that you used to the book’s spelling of Alchemist instead of being correct.

Yes. Alchemists’ throughout history have believed that you could turn metal into gold. The most common were Lead to Gold. If you ever played Skyrim, there was a spell that could turn Iron to Silver. Then Silver to Gold. But this isn’t a Gaming Blog, so I’ll stop there. Scientifically speaking it is possible to turn Lead into Gold, but to do it you need to have Nuclear Radiation. Which is dangerous (duh! Like the Hulk but worse.). What is easier to do is to turn Gold into Lead, but who wants a chunk of Lead hanging from their neck? Not me.

Let me get back to your question. Technically speaking, Yes. Nick (as he is known is the books), has been an Alchemyst for many years. And I don’t mean just 10 or 20 years. I mean hundreds of years. Nick was born in 1330, while his wife¬†Perenelle Flamel was born in 1320. Remember how I said that Joan of Arc was his wife, well, as you recall, I never said that. I just said that that person read on. Clearly, he didn’t read far enough, though. They married in 1368 and lived together until 1397 when they both “died”.

According to the world, they were dead. But since they achieved immortality, they were, well, Immortal. By the time the events of Harry Potter roll around both are around 600-650 years old. His books have us advance another 15 years to the time of 2006.  Josh and Sophie Newman are twins. But they have a very interesting story to tell. One: They have the two rarest Auras known. Two: Josh is really the older of the Siblings, even though Sophie was born 28 seconds before.

Josh was born around 30,000 years ago. But he didn’t know. Sophie was born around 1,000 years ago. Again, she didn’t know about that. Sophie has a Pure Silver Aura. Which is the second rarest Aura. Josh has a Pure Gold Aura. Which just so happens to be the rarest. As such, these “twins” are the two most powerful teens in the universe. Everything surrounding them is False. Their mother and Father are really Immortals. Their Aunt is an Immortal. John Dee is Evil. And Josh will no longer be Josh. (I¬†haven’t gotten that far yet.)

Let’s get back to the Auras. Every Aura has a scent to it. Sophie’s scent is Vanilla. Josh’s is an Orange-Spice. If I’m not mistaken, John Dee’s is like rotten eggs. (UGH!). It is how the Elders determine who to attack and eat. Which is gross. But hey, I ain’t no Elder.

With our frail human minds, we see Immortality to be a¬†Nirvana. That may be true, but how are we to know? There was this book called Tuck Everlasting. I was never a huge fan of it (we had to read it for my Literature class), but there was one thing that Tuck said that has always stuck out to me. And I haven’t read that book in a long time. It was that life was a river. And instead of being the leaves that continuously flow by, you are a rock that sits there. Forever. Never changing, never being able to move on. Rather than a blessing, it is a curse.

In this series Nick and his wife are ready to Die. They have lived a long life and are ready for some closure. Which is something that Both Josh and Sophie can help with. But first, they must unlock their inner powers. And even though the bloodlust (Josh) and the horrible headaches (Sophie) get impossible to control at times, they are the best chance that humanity has for survival.¬†“WHAT!?” Oh… I forgot to mention that, didn’t I?

There is something called the Codex. It tells of the day and age when the Dark elders plan to destroy the mortal world. And only two twins of pure Silver and Gold can put a stop to it forever. Or to finish off the world. Depending on who gets into their heads first. Which is why Nick and his wife try to Unlock the good inside of both of them. And John Dee unlocks the Evil inside of Josh. (That was the last I got to. I need to get the last two books to learn what happened.)

Would Recommend?

-Yup. Especially if you are a fan of Harry Potter. And if you are not, then read it anyway. Trust me, You’ll like the series!

This was supposed to be a normal review, but it kinda turned into a series review as well. ¬† ¬†I’ll put it as both.

Thanks for readin!
