Title: The Diviners

Author: Libba Bray

Published Date: September 18th 2012

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Synopsis: Evie O’Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City—and she is pos-i-tute-ly ecstatic. It’s 1926, and New York is filled with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that she has to live with her uncle Will and his unhealthy obsession with the occult.

Evie worries he’ll discover her darkest secret: a supernatural power that has only brought her trouble so far. But when the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer.

As Evie jumps headlong into a dance with a murderer, other stories unfold in the city that never sleeps. A young man named Memphis is caught between two worlds. A chorus girl named Theta is running from her past. A student named Jericho hides a shocking secret. And unknown to all, something dark and evil has awakened.

Seriously guy, this book is pretty darn awesome. It's a lot like Supernatural with their version of Dean & Sam coming and rescuing the world.

Second off... Do you know how long it's been since I've read a book that had sentences or words instead of numbers as their chapter titles? Percy Jackson & The Last Olympian long. I remember while reading PJO how much fun I had guessing how these sentences/words would come into play and that same excitement came along with this book. Nothing but pure enjoyment while reading this book.

I'm not one for books with long descriptions but dang. Libba's descriptions are glorious. They literally make you feel like the wind when she describes people and their actions and what's going on around them. I can say that Libba is one for diversity, she uses every character she can think of, and she uses them really well. I can't even begin to imagine how much research went into this one.

If you're looking for a book that has amazing characters and an equally amazing story line then definitely grab this book.
