I loved the book, however, the one section I liked least is the part when Silas and friends are away fighting the Jacks. I like the idea, but for some reason it came across as a Scooby-doo moment for me. Sort of when a cartoon switches scenes and we suddenly see Scooby and Shaggy in a harrowing moment confronting a vampire, werewolf and mummy. I guess the best way to put it is that I wanted Silas to be non-cliche.

Well, here's one kid who realized I'm twelve, and I just borrowed this book from the library. I must say that this is one of the best books I've read, and I pretty much thought that he was a vampire pretty early on in the book, because it said he was niether living nor dead, and he had powers that Bod wouldn't be able to learn.
It was great how a story could make it obvious what a character was without ever using the word vampire or even mentioning drinking blood. All the other characteristics were there except possibly transforming into a wolf or bat, and he did have some bat characteristics.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Cori,
