Book Review: Slayers
I loved this book! The author C.J. Hill is a pseudonym (pen name) for one of my favorite authors. I own 9 of her books! Obviously I'm a fan. My husband liked it too so it's not just for girls. =)
Have you ever read a book where you wanted to read it slower so it wouldn't end and you could stay in that fictional world forever? That's how Slayers was for me. I wanted to go to dragon camp and be a Slayer. It's been a few days, and I'm still daydreaming about being a dragon Slayer. These teenagers have some pretty awesome powers, but you'll have to read and find out the specifics yourself.
Tori, the main character, is a Senator's daughter. She wasn't the typical girl you'd pick to save the world in her expensive clothes and stilettos. Which is what made the book and journey so fun. The majority of the book was from Tori's perspective, but a few pages throughout were from other side characters. I liked those times where I could sneak into other characters' thoughts.
CJ does a great job having a big group of characters that each stand out. There were 9 Slayers plus other side characters. I loved all the action and romance. Overall a wonderful read! I recommend it to everyone.
