Revealers by Amanda Marrone


BLURBS:

Jules has a rebellious streak, a massive crush on Connor, and the abilities of a Revealer witch. By day, she and her coven friends seem like typical high school seniors. By night, they have the power to make werewolves, vampires, and ghosts reveal themselves, so they can destroy them. It's not exactly cheerleading, but at least the girls know they're doing the world some good. One by one, Jules's friends turn eighteen and are initiated into the coven's inner circle. And one by one, they are getting completely freaked out. Jules is the youngest, and though her friends are too scared tell her what's going on, something's clearly not right. As her birthday approaches, Jules realizes she's got to find out what's behind the shadows of her coven before it's too late to save her friends...and herself. But what she discovers may be too powerful for even the toughest witches to defeat.


THOUGHTS:

It has a very good twist but nothing that you can't already figure out, once you get to that part when it was Sacha's turn to be 18 and get initiated. Jule's rebellion appeals so much to me though, I share the same sentiments with her. Seriously, old school? The coven still makes them fly with their brooms, the still use crystal balls, they still have those cauldrons and yeah they still wear cloaks that gives them that "Little red Riding Hood" look. Even the newbie Vampire Kelsey, that Margo staked noticed that. Bravo for Miss Marrone for not doing the conventional boy-girl lives happily ever after. Like in her other book Uninvited the first love of the main characters turned out to be such douche they ended up in hell. And mother's signing off their daughter's soul to demons? I know shocking and so not cool. Oh and what's up with that part of the story that she was dissing - I believe the Twilight book? that was pretty obvious, the fans might get all butt hurt about it. It was all cool to me though, I find it pretty funny actually and she does make a good point, there really is something creepy about 300++ year old vamps making high school kids their blood bonded mates. I still love vamps though. The spells that the girls have in the book was super lame too. Reveal, Steal, Light, Out, blah... But after all that, I was still entertained, I like the blend of vampires and wiches, the plot was pretty cool. so the money that I paid didn't really go to waste.
