An ancient evil threatens the world, and only the chosen few can save it: the Singers, the Seekers, and the Saviors….
Tyrell Hughes enters his junior year of high school at Winton Yowell with everything going for him. He’s popular, he has great friends, and he has the eye of the hottest girl in school. Jeremy Michalak is a transfer student hoping to escape the bullying he suffered at his last school. All he wants is to keep his head down, make it to graduation without any trouble, and pursue the thing that makes him happiest: playing clarinet.
Tyrell and Jeremy have nothing in common except their homeroom assignments and a mutual attraction each is determined to keep hidden. That is until a dangerous mystery draws them inexorably together. Young people all over the city are dying of seemingly natural causes, but Tyrell and Jeremy discover there are dark forces at work that only they can stop. Now the boys will have to put aside their differences and accept their feelings for each other if they are to fulfill their destinies and become the city’s salvation.
I was always wondering, about those scenes in books when teenagers stop at making out because they are minors. Well, in my opinion, its bullcrap. When two 14-year-old or 16-year-old boys starts to fool around, there is no way they stop at just making out. There is sex baby, hot, quick and ohsoogood. Although we know those things are illegal, and I can respect that about the author when they write those scenes, but it’s not how life works.
Well in this book that’s not the case. I must say that we will not have sex till almost the end, but it’s happening.
That said, the book is not erotica at all. Actually, is a very sweet in-closet and an out-and-proud, interracial story about two high school boys.
I must say, I admire what Harmony is trying to makes here, creating sweet love romance books for a young audience. I can hardly recommend this book above 14-year-old.
We are in Chicago where young people seem to die often. The cause is natural death. So, there is no suspicion about those cases, until both Tyrell, a 16-year-old African-American (well I don’t like this term. I don’t want to enter in details. I’m from Europe and I never saw the problem calling a dark skin colored man or woman black… it’s just the color, there should be no offense in that, but as I’m just an ignorant European) and Jeremy a 16-year-old very white (there again, skin color you see) very blond, non-conformist boy, has the same kind of experience.
There are ancient evils that hunt and feed on the life energy of their victims. Apparently, Tyrell and Jeremy are chosen to destroy those evil beings. How? Well, them being connected, nearby, creates a sound, a sound only heard by these creatures and the chosen ones. This sound carries a power that annihilates these evil forces.
I really liked this book, I couldn’t put it down. Through Tyrell’s struggle with his feelings toward Jeremy, and Jeremy, who was several times harassed and bullied for being gay you will find yourself falling for this two teenagers…
I want to congratulate the author for this very fine story …
