My Sentence:

 
“A good laugh!”
– about How to Tell If Your Cat is Plotting to Kill You by Matthew Inman

Review: The Felix Chronicles: Freshmen by R. T. Lowe


Book Rate:
 ★★★★☆ (4/5)

I’m pretty I’ll be raving about this book for a little while…

The Felix Chronicles: Freshmen strikes me as a mixture of The Harry Potter Saga, a Stephen King’s thriller and a college contemporary. You can relate to it an awful lot since there are a lot of “today’s” references like Ke$ha, Taylor Swift, the Kardashians and The Hunger Games, so you really feel like the story happens in the world you live in. Which is great if you ask me.

The characters are great, incredibly realistic and smart and strong. They take precautions before jumping into dangerous situations which a lot of characters in other books don’t do and always strikes as unrealistic. Felix, Allison and Lucas (my top favourite, to be honest) are great, though! They could go to my college! (I would be besties with Allison, no doubt!!!).

The plotline is gripping, a page turner really, and I’m praying there are more books coming because I can’t leave this saga just yet. It’s not the common storyline we are all so used to, it has it’s unexpected twists and turns, which made this read so much greater for me.

If you’re looking for a good long time bookis companion then this is it. The almost 500 pages and smallish letter will keep you submerged in a hot chocolate drinking and frantic reading delicious environment.

A perfect Autumn read in my opinion!

Synopsis (adapted from goodreads):

Reeling from a terrible accident that claimed the lives of his parents, Felix arrives at Portland College and there gradually dares to believe he can put his past behind him.

But a fateful storm looms on the horizon: In the nearby woods, two hikers become the latest victims in a series of gruesome murders; a disfigured giant embarks on a vicious cross-country rampage, killing teenagers who fail his ‘test’; and an ancient society of assassins tasked with eradicating the wielders of a mysterious source of power awakens after a long silence.

Only one man–the school’s groundskeeper–knows that the seemingly unrelated events are connected, and that an eighteen-year-old boy stands in the center of the storm.
