Disclaimer: A Physical Copy of the book was provided by UsBorne YA for review. However, the thoughts, opinions and feelings expressed in this book are entirely my own!
I remember a time when I was crazy about boy bands or teenage pop stars and a show called Supernatural – two brothers fighting demons and all things unholy – I LOVED THEM before the show lost my interest (not because I grew up; but because the show turned in a way that wasn’t able to keep my interest!).
BUT YOU PUT THEM TOGETHER – that’s exactly what SLAY is all about!
Five boys who have had run – ins with demons, got together to start a band for they needed a cover to fight with demons and THEY ARE HUGE!! Think 1-D or any Korean Band currently in rage right now (No, I do not know about current music traditions; I can hardly keep up with new books coming out, I am only human!! *rolls eyes*)
JD, Tom, Niv, Zek and Connor are all they have in the world along with Gail, the woman who protected them and their manager. They are as different as can be, at least they are written to be, but I had sometimes a tough time keeping them apart (maybe I am getting old *shrugs*).
Lyudmila aka Milly’s mother is a big – time Opera Singer who keeps moving around for jobs, which makes sure that Milly doesn’t get to experience the normal teenage years but one night she experience something that is otherworldly and that’s when she is thrust into the Slay’s life and world.
This was a amusing and an endearing read – but what I most enjoyed was the fact that I was able to connect with the characters even with the age difference. They are adventurous, yet not risk takers despite the job that they have to do!
All the boys are interesting and Milly is no damsel in distress – which them all the more likeable; which was a brilliant move by the author – it made the characters likeable and definitely relatable!
I would definitely recommend this book to all the lovers and fangirls; especially if you adore a very well written adventurous start to something that I believe is going to be awesome!
