Revealers by Amanda Marrone Mini Review

Revealers by Amanda Marrone
[one of the choices in my Canadians-only contest!]
Rating: 3/5

Synopsis: 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.

Review: When I first read the back of the book, I thought it would be interesting...and it was. The beginning of the book is really hard to get into, but once you're near the middle of it, it definitely gets more interesting. In Revealers, the world Amanda Marrone creates is believable, but the way she started with the beginning of the book kind of ruined the experience. I can definitely say it was better than her other book, Uninvited. I read this book in between car rides and in my few minutes of spare time at night after homework. If you're in the mood for some light, careless reading, this is the book for you.

Overall, this book was pretty good; 3/5 stars.

I know what you mean. The beginning is too confusing. Thanks for the review.

I just checked this book out from the library, but I haven't started it yet. I'll keep what you said in mind! :)
