in this set up that makes this a very easy and for this reader a very rewarding experience Innovative and original at times witty and very humorous at others action driven and full of suspense thiss a book that could easily achieve cult status amongst the younger readers and have us older ones look over their shoulders with keen The Cat Club interest Very well done Can you believe that I did not read the plot until I finished the book The only thing I knewt was that Travis Luedke has a new book and that I had to read Yo Quiero Decir Sunburn it It did not disappo.

Int not at all Travis Luedke has become one of my UF favorite authors I loved his writing from the moment I read his first book Eisenhower: Soldier and President in his adult Nightlife series and I knew I would like this book evenf I usually stay away from YA books The Shepherd Der Spinnenmann is differents uniue feels real and fresh and does not follow the usual boring and repetitive Stundenplan ingredients that YA books tend to have The cover made me think that the book was going to be from Nadia s point of view but surprise surpriset s narrated blogdiary style by Mark the 16 year old skater that has a part time job goes to school doesn t get drunk wants to go to college He had a different life and now another has visions of the future and a new creepy Open Source Fuzzing Tools in a cute way friendNadia whos Nadia This Ralph Peer and the Making of Popular Roots Music is the primary uestion you will be asking yourself during the whole book Whos she What does she want Why Crossing Bok Chitto: A Choctaw Tale of Friendship Freedom is she so secretive Where does she come from Does she really care about Mike Read the book and find out view spoiler Theres even acid loction face melting going on hide spoiler Travis Luedke s The Shepherd offers hope to horror fans weary of the pale recycled horror populating the current marketOne of the coolest things as a reader Beauty Wreckage (Broken Crowns is finding a new author and watching him grow In the 80 s I was was lucky enough to discover Dean Koontz before he hitt big I watched as he The Cuckolds Calling improved with each novel until he became the household name hes todayI get the sense that Travis Luedke Motherland: A Novel is on the same pathThe Shepherds his newest novel and Fractions: The First Half of The Fall Revolution its definitely his strongest The plot s tightly woven wasting no space on unnecessary fillerThe lead character Mike Evans has a crystal clear voice Readers will get a sense of his personality from the first page He s 16 from a less than deal home who meets a mysterious young girl named Nadia who changes his life There The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap is to Nadia than meets the eye Theres a twist Latin for Children Primer a DVDs Chant CD in the middle which I won t spoil for you Thankfully unlike so many other writers Luedke does not bash you over the head with clues The secrets fun and completely obvious only upon reflection Much like the twist n The Sixth Sense I was expecting the story to go one way Then t went somewhere completely differentI couldn t be happierA word of caution the book has a warning about mature subject matter Luedke has chosen to write Mike Evans n a very realistic way There are copious amounts of profanity violence and sexual situations Many may be offended by the language even though t s realistic based on the character Though classified as Young Adult this book has nothing n common with Harry Potter Twilight or Hunger Games The Shepherd s not appropriate for young children although many could argue that Hunger Games sn t appropriate for young children eitherI chose to read The Shepherd as a straight horror story It reminds me very much of a good Richard Laymon story If you re a horror fan and not familiar with Richard Laymon I strongly recommend you check him out Travis Luedke s a fine successor to Laymon although he never devolves n to the pure pornography Laymon was prone toThis Und Nietzsche weinte is Luedke s 5th publisher novel If he continues tomprove his craft at this pace I m very nterested to see where he will take us n the future I received a free copy of this book for review purposes from the Lovers of Paranormal group and their RTR program I must admit this book held my attention until I was three uarters of the way through Peer Support Handbook for the Police Officer itand that was wheret lost meThe author did a wonderful job of ntroducing the characters and giving them life I uickly learned to like Mike and his best friend Anita The mystery surrounding Nadia who or what she was and her obsession with Mike made for thrilling reading I kept trying to put the puzzle together by her actions and the scripture at the #beginning of the chapters I was totally baffled and I loved tWhen the answer was revealed t made no sense #of the chapters I was totally baffled and I loved tWhen the answer was revealed B is for Buckeye: An Ohio Alphabet it made no sense regards to the scripture and I felt the details were not given as much attention as the events leading up tot The whole aura thing was strange The fact that Mike got so upset when he discovered that Nadia was killing his classmates even to the point of running from her Angriff The German Attack On Stalingrad In Photos in terror and then seemingly forgiving her so easily and giving her a hug was unrealistic I realize thiss fiction but when you have a character do a complete 180 n the expanse of a chapter t I received The Shepherd by Travis Luedke as an ARC for an honest review and I have to say I can t be honest than say t s BRILLIANT Travis has stuck his neck out and delved nto new territory with YA Fantasy and come out smelling of blood well roses actually He has nailed teenage angst firmly on the head and created a wonderful fantasy to lighten the moodMike s dirt poor lives n a trailer with his alcoholic Dad and has only skateboarding and a few close friends for an outlet for his troubled life The biggest trouble Mike has to deal with s his visions which always come with s
