This starts in school with Caleb getting sick and loosing his powers (odd because demons can not get sick.) The shifters start turning into their animal forms but retain no common sense. They are also visited by a rider on a black horse with scales and plague ridden birdlike men that are covered in blood.
The weather is plague-like: a hailstorm with hail the size of baseballs, blood rain, a swarm of mosquitoes the size of bats and later a murder of crows that were resurrected from the dead to take vengeance on Caleb.
I think that of all the convoluted history the most important is Nick's mom Cherise is the daughter of a Sephiroth. She is pure of heart and it her inner light attracted Adarian Malachi. That means Nick has the blood of both Malachi and Sephiroth. He will be able to choose to be good or evil. Now that he knows maybe he will learn his Sephiroth powers and hopefully not develop multiple personalities.
Next Nick and his older brother are being tested to see which deserves the Malachi powers. Nick Has ti get berries that will cure Caleb and wake his mother.
I loved that Nick would do anything to save his mother. I also love his innocence and the insane battle for good and evil. In this lifetime he beat the odds with some surprising friends. Loved it and I’m looking for more.
This series is absolutely amazing. Nuff said!
All in all I still like the series, I read this book in a couple of days and found it pretty magnetic as although there was much too much mind bending plots and not enough new interesting powers there was at least the reliable mass amounts of violence and carnage.
My favorite scene was when nick decided to make a bomb with his blood but it didn't really work successfully. Shocking moment of realization right before you get swarmed by monkeys.
