Being the youngest daughter of the Devil has never been easy. Daphne's father has no time for her, her mother no interest, and her status in the upper echelon separates her from the working-class demons that populate Lucifer's metropolis. When her brother and only confidante goes missing, life in the restrictive city of Pandemonium becomes intolerable. Now, in an attempt to find him, Daphne sets out for Earth - and finds it larger and more chaotic than she imagined: a dazzling expanse of noise, dirt and random violence. Despite her bewilderment, she navigates the mortal world with growing fascination, gaining an ally when she saves a dying boy from her father's minions. For Truman Flynn, the last year has been one long downward spiral, but when Daphne arrives just in time to save his life, he finds himself unexpectedly glad to have another chance. Together, Daphne and Truman go in search of her brother, braving the hazards of Las Vegas and the perils of first love, even as it becomes increasingly clear that her brother might have had a secret and compelling reason for leaving. Lucifer's agents aren't the only creatures on the prowl, and Daphne soon finds herself the target of a plan to rid the world of demons for good. Now she must evade a demon-eating monster, rescue her brother from an angelic zealot, and save the boy she loves from his greatest enemy - himself.Summary from Amazon.com
TITLE:THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RINGAUTHOR:J.R.R TOLKEINFORMAT: PAPERBACKSummary: Frodo Baggins is told to take Sauron's ring to Mount Doom in Mordor. On the way he will have many adventures involving everything from trolls to the Nazgul. He will gather a fellowship on the way, pardon the pun. His ultimate goal is to destroy the ring in the fires of Mount Doom before Sauron can enslave all the free peeps of Middle Earth -- mwaaaahaaaahahahaha -- very happy and fluffy. It is divided into two books, part one and two.Strengths and Weaknesses: One strength is fully developed cultures and worlds. It's one of the most in-depth fantasy books ever. One weakness is sort of of a redundant theme like Frodo being captured a lot of times but by different people, so I guess it's not too bad. Another strength is that it doesn't seem like it drags on and on like some books. One of my favorite parts is the Mines of Moria because there is a big fight with a Balrog.Rating/appropriateness: I would give it 4/5 chocolate bars. It's pretty appropriate except for violence/ orcs getting their heads cut off. Overall it was a very good book.
