In the Midwestern suburb of LaGrange, something is amiss. Over a twenty-four-hour period, all the children under the age of thirteen along with many adults have disappeared without explanation. It doesn't take long for those left behind to learn that this tragedy is part of a global event. As people panic, civilization begins to crumble. Luckily, the Secretary of Homeland Security, Daniel Grimshaw, has a plan to restore order. But first, every remaining person must be accounted for and tagged with a mark on their right hand.
Unaware of his responsibilities, seventeen-year-old Micah has been preparing for this day. His mother trained him and provided him with the proper tools, but she neglected to tell Micah about the family legacy, his legacy. Now that his mother is among the missing, will Micah ever discover who he is, or what he needs to do to save what's left of humanity from the hellfire of perdition?
This was a creepy and good book! It is a review tour book, and one that's published by a very obscure publisher, which sometimes means that the book could use with a bit more editing. Well, the synopsis too, because it had the two parts, and was just a bit weird.
So what happened in in this book, well, yeah, not cool! Like the marked thing, just proves that the world better not end, because us humans, we'd react badly, and I would just prefer to not have that happen at all!
So like the synopsis says, Micah's had this training for this happening. But he didn't know that it was training for this, and now that his mom's gone, well, he knows that there's something he needs to know, but he doesn't know what.
And oh, that ending! I enjoyed it so much! This is a two book series, so yeah, there'll be more, so yeah, that ending was perfect and creepy and just really darned enjoyable! Just so great to read, and while I'm not sure I'll read the sequel, it is going to be out there!
This was a really entertaining book, great thriller, and I enjoyed it a lot!
