...rats rule!!!

a lenny lee book review...

im soooo lucky cause my friend miss hilary wagner just sent me a signed arc of her cool new book THE WHITE ASSASSIN. its a mg book but its for more older readers too. its got some stuff thats not for little kids. on the back it says ages 9 up and im thinking that about right.

i got started reading it just as quick as i got it out of the package. YIKES! what a BIG surprise that she got it dedicated to me. WOW! how special a friend is that! i gotta tell you this book is soooooo good!! i got it read sooooo fast. every time i was gonna stop i just had to go at the next page to see what was gonna happen. if you could like cool characters, lots of rising and falling action, excitement, yeesh i didnt see that coming stuff, strange relationships, twists and turns and bunches of emotions THIS BOOKS FOR YOU!!!

even if you didnt read nightshade city the first book in the nightshade chronicles its ok cause this books great all by itself. but in it you get some history of stuff from the first one so you could know what happened.

whats it about? the back cover says it pretty good:

“Book II in the Nightshade Chronicles begins three years after Juniper and his rebel band liberate the Catacombs from Billycan. A sense of peace has settled over Nightshade City, but it is a false one. Billycan, The white Assassin, has been found deep in the southern swamps, where he now rules a horde of savage swamp rats eager to overrun Nightshade City. With the help of an ancient colony of bats and an uneasy alliance with the swamp snakes, Juniper and his council set out to thwart Billycan’s plans. When an old secret is revealed – one so shocking it shakes both Billycan and Juniper to the core – the fate of Nightshade City and the life of Juniper’s only son depend on Juniper’s decision: should he help his mortal enemy? The past resurfaces with devastating impact in this dark tale of intrigue, deception and betrayal.”

WOW! how could you not wanna read it???

this cool books coming out in october 2011. you could preorder it here.and you could visit the official nightshade chronicles website here. and for sure you should go meet miss hilary at her blog. shes just sooooo cool!

WARNING! when you get this book dont plan not one thing cause once you get started reading it youre not gonna put it down til you get at the very last word.

oh! and guess what? i got a feeling theres a next book in the nightshade chronicles coming??? WOW! how cool is that!
