Fourteen-year-old Michael Stevens has never been ordinary; no orphan who hears music coming from rocks considers himself a typical teenager. But life gets a lot more complicated when two-foot-tall, albino, doll-like men sneak into his room one night, transforming the harmless music into a frightening ability he cannot control.
Soon, strangers in black suits begin to ask unsettling questions while unnatural animals with mismatched eyes haunt the streets. They are hunting, and not just Michael: anyone he cares about is in danger.
With the help of a mysterious drifter, an annoying girl he's accidentally mutated, and one of those creepy doll men, Michael finds himself in the middle of a war that could forever change the world he knows - reconstructing the very definition of humanity.
Now for the cover!!!!
What do you think?
My Opinion: I get a little chill looking at it. I have to admit from the blurb I got a slightly creepy feeling I dont know why, its maybe the whole shadow thing and the "doll like men" creep me a little and the cover gives me the seem vibe. Not in a bad creepy way but the way a good horror movie leaves you with that feeling. I like the font of Awoken and I like the brown tones. The book to me gives of a slightly "old" feeling. Like it was set maybe not in this era but in the past.
