After his mom disappears, Jason Lex and his family move to a small town where he has no friends, no fun, no life. Things get worse when he’s chased by weird flying creatures that only he can see---Jason thinks he’s losing it.

But when Jason discovers new information about his family, he’s stunned to learn that creatures like Skyfish, Kappa, and the Mongolian Death Worm aren’t just stories on the Internet---they’re real and they live unseen alongside the human race. Many of these creatures naturally emit energy capable of incinerating humans. An invisible shield keeps these creatures hidden and protects the human race from their threatening force, but someone, or some thing, is trying to destroy it.

Unsure who he can trust, Jason is drawn into the fight to save the people closest to him, and he finds help in surprising places. Confronted with loss, uncertainty, and a devastating betrayal, Jason must make a gut-wrenching decision:

Who lives, and who dies.

My Review:  Jason isn’t thrilled to be moving, and it’s even worse since its happening right after his mum disappears.  Oh and then random creatures are chasing him. If that isn’t odd enough, then i don’t know what to say when he is the only one who can see them.

Yup, its all fun for Jason. Oh and he soon learns about his family, apparently these creatures aren’t just myths you read on the internet. They are usually hidden from the human world, but now that are getting through and hurting the humans.

This was something different from my usual read.  I’m always willing to give something new a chance, and I’m sure a lot of people will love this book. But for me, I wasn’t so in love with this. I did enjoy it, but there were parts that just didn’t grab me. It’s still worth the read for those who love these types books!

My Rating:
