Forget making it through High School. Caleo has bigger problems! As the search for him goes on, the world is quickly crumbling around him. He’s now fighting for his life and the life of what little family he has left. With the help of new friends, he has little time to try and master his newly found powers as he tries to figure out who he can trust, who is trying to use him, and who just wants him dead. One wrong step and being the awkward pale outcast will be the least of his worries.
stranger shows up and forever alters Caleo’s life! Now come out The Leeches, a magical group of people that have been in secret for decades. They are in desperate search of a weapon to rule the world and what Caleo doesn’t yet know is that he is the weapon.Caleo was orphaned as a baby and raised by his grandmother along with other orphaned kids and his best friend is his brother, not his biological sibling. He has hidden his sexuality from everyone as he feels he has enough problems and doesn’t want to add to them as he fears it would be the end of his life as he knows it to be. That is until he finds out the truth about who really Caleo is. What really moved me about this novel was the extreme bullying and violence as James wrote it so realistically and truthfully done. It was difficult at times but did not stop me from wanting to read this incredible story of his. James kept my curiosity and interest peaked throughout the entire book by all of the twist and turns which I just loved. The only and I mean only, small issue was that it was a tad slow at the beginning but when it took off there was no stopping James from writing such an incredibly beautiful and detailed story! The ending had a big cliff-hanger and some unanswered questions so I know there will be a second book and I can’t wait to get into that one! It will answer more questions and continue with the fascinating and loveable character of Caleo plus we want to see what becomes of Jack and Nolan!
I highly recommend this beautiful and paranormal book Caleo by James Crawford! If you want to read about acceptance, love, hateful people, leeches and powerful friendships then this is a must read for you!
