OMG! What can I say about this book! First let me say I received this book from the Author for my honest review. It is a bit out of the norm for me to read a book that's title has ANYTHING at all to do with religion even slightly. I've studied far too many religions to want to read about them in my leisure time. That being said I can say this book was one of the most interesting, fun, intelligently written books I've read in a long time.

First we have young Nathan, who is 16 and finds out quite by accident that he is the antichrist. Okay and if that isn't weird enough his two friends Shayla and Cheeseman are his keepers. I absolutely loved Nathan. He is a fabulously written character. You fall in love with him. His little secret love for Shayla that isn't really all that secret is perfect and exactly what a 16 year old boy would do. Cheeseman has learning disabilities and is such a character. I could picture the three children together perfectly. That says a lot about the Author.

I won't go into any details what-so-ever about the story other than to say it was a delightful read. It kept you on the edge of your seat for the entire book. There is a lot of detail in the book but it never has an info-dump which is very good. The information she wants to give you is done in such a way that it entices you the reader to keep going. 

As for the religious aspect of the book. There is none! I mean sure she mentions the antichrist often and religion as in they go to church or how the preacher does his sermons but there is no preaching of hell fire and damnation if you don't believe. I personally hate that sort of thing. I think as the author wrote in her book that "souls cannot be lost and they don't need to be saved. All of that is a construction, a fabrication to gain and maintain control of a larger populace". It's nice to see that other people think the same thing and have the brains and the nerve to put it in writing. 

Kudos to C. J. Graves for her book and I wholeheartedly recommend this book to EVERYONE! Young or old alike!
