MicahMicah (The Sword of Malachi #1)
by Lee DuCote
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Age category: Young Adult
Release Date: May 3, 2016

When lacrosse star Micah Spearman moved to the quiet little town of Seven Springs, he never expected to become such a significant part of his lacrosse team, his group of friends, or of the battle raging just beyond human reach. With a gift to see into the spiritual dimension, Micah learns he is part of a prophecy and must lead an army of guardians against legions of demons, all while trying to live a normal teenage life.

Navigating through high school can be a daunting task. When Micah finds himself falling in love with his friend Stephanie, he must be careful not to disrupt their group of friends—or attract attention from the demons that watch his every move. But high school will not be the biggest survival challenge he faces. Micah and friends soon find their world expanding far beyond, as Micah discovers his true purpose.

As the battle rages to find the Sword of Malachi, the young freshman finds himself falling deeper into a world of unknowns. Can Micah find the sword before all is lost? Will Stephanie give into her feelings for Micah? In Micah, the Sword of Malachi, you too will fall under the charm and the mysteries of Seven Springs.

My Review:

I loved the story!!!  It’s very intriguing and with a lot of turns and a lot of mystery as well.  Romance is not missing either, so I can say this book is addressed to a large type of readers.

The subject is a classic one: evil against good, demons versus… prophets?  That’s a new one for me. I’ll stop here with the details. I did not follow how the transition between the real and spiritual world was happening. I mean what happens with his body? How is time flowing between the two worlds?  There are some unanswered questions, but it’s just small details for my evil eye J

Micah was not entirely to my taste unfortunately. He is very mature for his age. I mean, for a 15 year old he can act very mature in many discussions, even has friends older than him who seek his advice.  I’m not sure this was the author’s intention or just how the character came up. Also, when he starts seeing demons and fighting he is very confident in his actions and even in his abilities. However, when it comes up to asking a girl out, he proves to be very very shy.

Since there is some originality to the story and since I loved it, even though there are things to be improved, I award 4 stars and wait impatiently for the next part. Happy reading!
