The town of Mohaba has been plagued by evil creatures known as Devols for years. Darkness envelopes the town at all moments. Despair is around every corner. The Devols’ attack cost many people their lives. The ones who died were the lucky ones. The ones left, the ones who survived, are the ones now tortured by the constant inhabitation of the evil Devols. Narrated by Death himself, this dark, somber story will keep you intrigued ‘til the end. 


I was very interested in this book, as I had never heard of anything like it before. It sounded weird, but in an intriguing way. I’m glad I gave this story a shot. It was very fast-paced and kept my attention throughout the whole tale. I loved how the author didn’t linger too much on details, but instead focused on moving the plot forward and keeping the reader interested. I do wish, however, that the author had described the world a bit better. I found myself confused at quite a few instances as to what was going on.

I loved the main character, which is probably an odd thing to say since the main character is Death. I found his character very interesting, and I thought the author did an amazing job creating a personality for Death, which can be a very daunting task. I also liked the side character Mohabat, who was independent and kind. She was stern at times, but I didn’t mind since her endearing attitude towards Death made up for it.

Overall, this was an incredibly written story of fantasy and adventure that I recommend to anyone age 12+.
