Jenny Pox by J.L. Bryan REVIEW

Jenny Pox by J.L.Bryan (The Paranormals #1)

free read

Synopsis from Goodreads
Jenny has a secret. Her touch spreads a supernatural plague.

She devotes her life to avoiding contact with people, until her senior year of high school, when she meets the one boy she can touch, and she falls in love.

But there's a problem—he's under the spell of his devious girlfriend Ashleigh, who secretly wields the most dangerous power of all.

Now Jenny must learn to use the deadly "Jenny pox" she's fought her entire life to hide, or be destroyed by Ashleigh's ruthless plans. 

Not for readers under eighteen.

This was one of those rare free reads that for me hit the jackpot. Fantastic, gritty, overblown story that goes down and dirty all the way.

The concept is pretty simple: a poor social outcast Jenny falls in love with a popular jock Seth who's got  an evil cheerleader Ashleigh for a girlfriend.

Not so simple if you think that these three individuals possess ancient powers, - one of them can kill by mere touch, one can raise you from the dead and one can make you worship them and plans world domination...

 The dramatic events unravel in a small American town, where Jenny lives with her alcoholic dad, Seth is a son of a rich banker and Ashleigh is as hypocritical and dangerous as you can expect from a daughter of a preacher.

Of course the plot is full of cliche, however the writing is very engaging and half way through gets more and more gruesome and shocking. Sorry, I like gruesome *grinning*. It's like a big train wreck/B-movie - horrible to the point of being absurd but hugely entertaining.

So, I very much recommend J.L. Bryan, and I'm definitely planning to read the rest of the books in series.

Очень интересная получилась книжка, сам язык читается легко и повествование захватывает с первой страницы. Несмотря на простоту сюжета: бедная непопулярная школьница Дженни влюбляется в золотого мальчика школы - Сета с ведьмой чеерлидером Ашли в качестве гёрлфренд, которая практически контролирует школу и ненавидит Дженни, - всё не так уж и просто.

Эта троица обладает древними силами: один из них приносит чуму одним прикосновением, второй может оживить даже мёртвого, третий может заставить тебя на него молиться и целовать землю, по которой он ходит, плюс подумывает о мировом господстве.

Книга читается как b-movie со всеми его характеристиками - шокирующе, грязно, сыро, с кровищей и прочими атрибутами ужастиков, но необычайно увлекательно, поэтому я обязательно прочитаю остальные книги серии, что и вам рекомендую.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
