The Demon's Lexicon - Sarah Rees Brennan This review was written by Camille Morales, staff reviewer with the Fantasy Book Addict.The Demon’s Lexiconby Sarah Rees Brennan is one of my favorite books now; I love everything from the characters, to the relationships between them, to the magnificent plot, and the wonderful writing (wow!). First of all, let’s talk about the characters. Nick, the main character, is ruthless—he won’t hesitate to kill someone, and the only person he truly cares for is his kind and loving brother, Alan. Nick isn’t likeable, but I enjoyed his sense of humor and the way he didn’t consider anyone else’s feelings. He only thought of the things that needed to be done to keep his brother safe. This was both good and bad, because his brother, Alan, is the total opposite of him, so even if Nick was thinking only about him, Alan would be thinking about the people around him, whether that was his mother, Olivia, or his friends, Mae and Jamie. Needless to say, the two brothers argued most of the time, and it was frustrating both for the reader and all of the characters. Aside from the two brothers, who were both likeable and unlikeable for different reasons, the two friends, Mae and Jamie, were also enjoyable characters—especially Mae, who was my favorite character, because although this world she entered of demons and magicians was entirely new to her, she kept her head up high. Jamie was the total opposite; however, in the end, his character gains enough confidence, and he decides to fight for what he believes in and for the people he loves. All in all, when it comes to the characters, they were all incredibly relatable for different reasons, as they were all very real and each one of them had good and bad inside of them.You can read the rest of the review here: http://www.fantasybookaddict.com/2012/11/24/the-demons-lexicon-brennan/
