Dusty Covers Monday #6

It is that time once again for our weekly meme here on Novel Goddess! Time for me to select a book that has been collecting some dust as it waits for me to read and enjoy the story within its pages. This week I have chosen a book from 2009 that I have been anxious to get my hands on. It is...drum roll please....

The Demon's Lexion by Sarah Rees Brennan

Nick and his brother, Alan, have spent their lives on the run from magic. Their father was murdered, and their mother was driven mad by magicians and the demons who give them power. The magicians are hunting the Ryves family for a charm that Nick's mother stole -- a charm that keeps her alive -- and they want it badly enough to kill again.

Danger draws even closer when a brother and sister come to the Ryves family for help. The boy wears a demon's mark, a sign of death that almost nothing can erase...and when Alan also gets marked by a demon, Nick is desperate to save him. The only way to do that is to kill one of the magicians they have been hiding from for so long.

Ensnared in a deadly game of cat and mouse, Nick starts to suspect that his brother is telling him lie after lie about their past. As the magicians' Circle closes in on their family, Nick uncovers the secret that could destroy them all.

This is the Demon's Lexicon. Turn the page. (goodreads)

My reason's for selecting this book:

  1. I follow SRB on Twitter and feel like I should get to one of her books fast because she is pretty cool.
  2. A few of my friends have been prodding me to read it.
  3. The book has been on my TBR list for far too long
  4. My local library had it ready and available without waiting for a hold to process.
