Product Description

Product Description

#1 Amazon Best Seller - OVER 100 5 STAR REVIEWS!


Killing someone is a lot harder than you'd imagine. Physically harder, I mean. On TV a guy strangles someone for like 5 seconds and the body slumps to the ground in a heap of dead just like that. In real life, it takes so long you wouldn't believe it.

See, I saw someone get strangled once when I was 9.


Scroll up and click the cover to Look Inside and keep reading the opening chapter. Otherwise, here's the description from the back of the book:

In his own words, 15 year old Jake is a “huge pussy.” He flinches. Always. He's too timid to make a move on Beth, the buxom girl of his dreams, and too busy getting face-slammed into lockers by bullies to do much else. He seeks the guidance of the biggest bad ass he knows, his cousin Nick.

Nick is a professional burglar and makes Jake his apprentice. They stalk suburban neighborhoods night after night, ransacking houses for jewelry and sweet valuables. Nick teaches Jake the finer points of breaking and entering along with his dark philosophy - that there is no right or wrong in the world, just a series of events that happen without meaning.

At first, adopting Nick's callous worldview helps Jake get over his fears and confront his tormentors, but he also unleashes an aggression in himself he never thought possible. And as he learns more about his cousin, he realizes that Nick's crimes go way beyond burglary.

In the end, Jake must face not only the monster in his cousin but also the one in his own heart.

I found myself wanting to put this book down at times, not because it was bad, but because I didn't like what I thought was about to happen. The ability to make me feel anxious like that shows that this is a good book. In the end, the plot twists and turns were so unpredictable I rarely actually knew what was about to occur. It's not my ususal sort of book to read, but I thought it was well written, and expertly executed.

When I first picked up Casting Shadows, it was near the top of my TBR pile, but circumstances meant I didn't get to read it until recently. The story is told in almost diary format from the point of view of a boy, who's not really sure what he wants in life. The man influence is his cousin Nick who is trying to teach him that rules don't matter and control is a myth. I'll be honest and say that as I started to get into it, I was not really enjoying it as much as I'd hoped I would. However, as the book moved on, the plot got more and more thrilling and I found myself stealing moments here and there to be able to find out what happened next. It's a great book, and while it took me a few chapters to get into it, I'm very glad that I stayed with it.

L.T. Vargus has told a harrowing tale here, that sometimes you love the idea of a person more than the actual person. They have created this tale of trying to find your place in the world and while at times you think you know where they're going with it, it doesn't always end up that way. Great book, loved it and would recommend!

Compelling. Young man trying to make sense of life. Challenged by complex and layered morality shaped by experience, "there but absent" parents and a dangerous cousin, Jake works through life shaping events. Awesome use of reflective voice the authors reveal an intelligent and thoughtful young man making his way. A fast paced read.

This was such a different read for me but I really got into it & enjoyed it. It's really well written & I learnt some interesting facts as well as cracked up laughing often.
I don't really know how to review it without giving anything away but if you read the synopsis & think it sounds interesting, give it a try. It's worth it :)
