Review: Antichrist 16: The Becoming by C.J. Graves

Antichrist 16: The Becoming (Antichrist 16 Trilogy, #1)
It’s not like sixteen-year-old Nathan Terras wants to be evil. A bad boy, maybe—but not evil. Yeah, he can see auras but so what? He’d gladly trade that talent for, say, a new Mustang or a little skin time with Scarlett Johansson. That is until a near-death experience reveals he’s to become the Antichrist.

Forget vampires, werewolves, and zombies. They’re the lucky ones.

THE. ANTICHRIST.

And now his enemies are waking. They’re coming for him, and they’re not interested in a friendly game of Halo. But Nathan’s developing some frightening defenses of his own. A violent power grows inside him. He’d be thankful, if only the dark energy wasn’t so addictive.

When his little brother disappears, he’ll do anything to get him back. Embracing his new identity may save his brother’s life, but Nathan could lose his own in the process. The line between good and evil begins to blur, leaving Nathan wondering which side he’s on.

Shona's review 5 of 5 stars 

I'll be honest, this didn't sound like something I would normally pick up, but I won a copy of this book in a competition and figured I should give it a chance. And I'm so very glad I did

The story itself is very original and told in such a way that you are drawn right in. From the very beginning I was hooked. I did wonder if it would get bogged down by religion but there was definitely nothing to worry about in that department.

Nathan is your every day normal average teenager, who just happens to see people's aura's. After being sent to the principal's office for fighting Nathans life changes forever. It sounds kind of cliché, but this book had me on the edge of my seat almost all the way through it. The final showdown was great. Some fairly big secrets were unveiled, some were a little obvious, others not so.

If you're looking for a break from all the werewolves, vampires and witches, then look no further.
