THE REVELATIONS SERIESBy Jamie A. Hope When alluring teenager Salem Stone becomes a magnet for assaulting demons and suddenly develops superhuman abilities, family secrets are revealed that will not only endanger his life and the life of his childhood love—but the lives of everyone on earth. Back Story: Magnetic teenager Salem Stone dominates the football field, wrestling mat, and hearts of all of the girls at his school. But off the mat he is easy going, especially when it comes to his childhood love, Sarah. Salem lives a charmed life until he is attacked by demons, leaving him with physical wounds. Salem struggles to keep the repeated assaults a secret, until he confides in his long time best friend Ben, who strangely dismisses the wounds with a logical explanation. When Salem attempts to outrun the menacing demons, he develops superhuman abilities, leaving him with even more questions. Looking for an escape from the mental and physical torture, he becomes fixated on an irresistible new girl at school, Lily. As Salem focuses his attention on Lily, everything around him devolves into chaos, including his relationship with Sarah. What he soon finds is the relentless pursuits by demons and his superhuman abilities are triggered by the same source—life threatening family secrets. Just when he thinks his family and friends are not who he thought they were, he discovers he's not who he thought he was either—and that he is the most hunted teenager on the planet. And he has just been found.
So this story is about Salem and his destiny. The destiny of his family and many others. The story starts off kinda slow. It seems like a teenage story about annoying parents. Then things start getting crazy.
It was a great first book. I was so excited to get past the beginning into the story. It sucks you in and makes you want more. I am excited to see what comes next.
