Seventeen-year-old bounty hunter SHADOW is about to lose his mind. One week he’s killing demons and other creatures. The next, he has ten super-powered teenagers in his care. Shadow needs their help, because without them he can’t hope to complete his mission. But he’s never dealt with other teenagers before. He’s always been a loner. Heck, he’s tried the whole having-a-pet thing. It died.
Shadow’s mission: save the world and ensure his entire team survives the potential apocalypse. If MAEDARA, self-proclaimed fashionista, Queen of Evil, and diva extraordinaire wasn’t trying to rule the world, it’d be cake. Now, not only does Shadow have to deal with teens more concerned with going to the mall than fighting evil, but also a villain who, in his opinion, makes Lady Gaga look like Mother Theresa.
Michael Chulsky grew up in New Jersey and has been writing ever since his fourth grade teacher let him create a class newspaper to channel his creativity. He is the author of The Descending Darkness and currently lives with his fiancé. When not writing he enjoys browsing Tumblr, listening to music, and devouring every piece of cheesecake that falls into his line of sight.
This book’s premise is absolutely amazing. The characters are all teens except for Shadow and Michael has captured their persona’s beautiful. I could see teen complications. It’s a x-men type of novel with Shadow, half vampire – half human, is their leader. The teens all have abilities that they must use to save the world from evil.
I really loved the story line of it and I read just to find out how it ended. Michael didn’t disappoint.
Now for what I didn’t like and I know I’m bickering about this on and on. There is an unnatural flow to the dialogue, and some of the sentences doesn’t make much sense. I think if Michael can redo some dialogue parts and get a good editor to check out sentence structure, this will be a 10 out of five, that’s how much I loved the story line.
My rating for this, even with the things that I didn’t like:
I wish you all the luck with Descending Darkness.
