It's all a question about right or wrong, good or evil, and if you had a chance to right the wrongs of the world, would you do it and to what costs?
The scenes in Sticks and Stones provoke sadness and despair that Sandra has had no support or love during her childhood until she meets her new found family who gathers her in despite the unconventional and unbelievable things she can see. It's down right scary to imagine knowing the future, especially with all the bad things happening in our modern world, and who would believe you anyway? However, once the Sloan Family are believers, they want to help, but there is a price to be paid, especially if by saving the intended victims you become the vigilante and take the law into your own hands.
What happens when you cross that line and how do you stop once you've crossed over? Some passages are so dark that you fear that there is no hope. Have they crossed the line once too often or can they hold back and let the proper authorities do their job?
In the end the truly evil one (a veritable psychopath whose lack of empathy chills me to the core) is destroyed, but we can only hope that this wasn't the one case that pushed them over to the dark side with no returning. I fell in love with the characters, feeling their loss and pain as Lem's life was distinguished. And the hostility and despise I felt for the evil one that lurks in their world.
I hoped that they would find a way to even the score without losing themselves and learn to control what they do without losing their love for one another. After all, doesn't Sandra and the boys deserve a little happiness?
Sandra Daron knows what it’s like to die. Every time she touches someone, she experiences their last moments; burning, drowning, choking,death.
Her visions shatter any pretense of normal she might wish she had. She’s a freak, isolated and alone in her small town junior high school. Her parents don’t care what she does or where she goes and all she wants to do is get by without being noticed.
All of that changes when a rough-around-the-edges father moves his two boys into the old house next door. The Sloans are a family in a way Sandra has never known. The brothers won’t let her hide and soon love and passion arouse the life within her to fight off the deaths he sees everyday. An unorthodox family brought together by a young woman’s premonitions of death, Sticks and Stones is a dark and gritty Gothic romance about roads paved with good intentions.
(Summary taken from Amazon).
This book is right up my alley of books. This book was so entruiging and kept me captivated until a big tragedy happens. Then it lost my interest, but I felt like I needed to keep going because I needed to know what happened to the dynamic of the boys and Sandra.
Their dynamic and relationship is so sweet, endearing and protective in the beginning. Then as they get older it adds a creep factor. It's so complex and well written. The things that Sandra sees and the actions taken are descriptive and mesmerizing. I really liked the book. I have it a 4 out of 5 only because of the low lull after the tragedy. Who the characters begin as and end as is amazing.
If you like supernatural, thriller, visions and murder, this book is for you! ( )
Lem, Daniel, and Jack Sloan, the dark mysterious new neighbors. The boys seem to move as a team and all it takes is a look by Lem and they stop in their tracks. No one seems to know their past or much about them. They don't seem to smile or talk much either. They just moved in one day.
By a chance of events Sandra is brought into the little family of the Sloans. She learns the family's dark past and that they will protect their own, no matter what. After a bad turn of events she is determined to make the right choices make them take the right path. But how can you save them all(self included) when no matter what road you take, all roads lead to black?
Sandra made a promise, a promise that she would save and protect Daniel and Jack. But now she's not so sure she can. She's not so sure she can save herself. Shes watching their eyes daily and hers also. Are they changing? You can't do wrong for the sake of right, and doing wrong will turn it black.
I received an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.
