"The Demon's Lexicon" by Sarah Rees Brennan
Danger draws even closer when a brother and sister come to the Ryves family for help. The boy wears a demon's mark, a sign of death that almost nothing can erase...and when Alan also gets marked by a demon, Nick is des-perate to save him. The only way to do that is to kill one of the magicians they have been hiding from for so long.
Ensnared in a deadly game of cat and mouse, Nick starts to suspect that his brother is telling him lie after lie about their past. As the magicians' Circle closes in on their family, Nick uncovers the secret that could destroy them all.
This is the Demon's Lexicon. Turn the page.
This book took a little while for me to get into it, it started off slow for me, but by the end I was definitely enjoying myself with this story. It's not like anything I've been reading lately and I really like the fact that it wasn't too sappy or cliched. Don't get me wrong, I love paranormal books that have a solid romance throughout as long as its well written, but I liked the fact that this book focused on the characters more than who was kissing who. I will definitely be reading the next book in this series :0)
