Review of Jericho by Alex Gordon

Lauren Reardon is still recovering from finding out about her family history with the town of Gideon and the Children of Endor, a sect of witches who protect the ‘thin’ places. Now she’s been ‘called’ back to the Pacific Northwest and the lost town of Jerichoin the Oregon forest. Lauren suspects something isn’t right there from the beginning and that she’s been brought to Jericho under suspicious circumstances. But Lauren doesn’t back down from doing what’s right and the evil that lives in Jericho needs to be dealt with, even if it means a risk to her own life.

If there’s one thing I took away from this book, it’s Beezlebabies! What a great name for the little creatures Lauren encounters. Lauren spends quite a bit of this story in the dark and having to figure things out for herself, which is kind of rude on the part of the people she’s there with, some of who are on the mysterious council she kept hearing about. Eugene Kaster is an interesting character as well and I think we’ll see more of him in the future. He’s kind of a jerk in the beginning, but he grows on you as the story progresses and you get to know him better. I’m excited to see where this series will go in the future.
