Purgatory Reign Book Summary:
Something evil this way comes...sadly for it, Peter Saints awaits.

Peter Saint's life stinks. But things are about to get much worst. First, his parents are murdered in front of him. Then another victim dies in his arms. Visions plague Peter with warnings that something wants him for a sinister cause. It desires the one thing that Peter refuses to give—his blood. Peter carries within him the one gift or curse that could unlock a secret to destroy the human race. On the run with Angel, a scruffy kid, Peter starts to unravel the mystery. It's the one treasure the heavens sought to hide from the world. Unfortunately, when Peter finds the answer that he hopes will save the girl he loves, he opens the door to a great evil that happens to be salivating to meet him.

My Thoughts:

This was one of those books with a lot of twists and turns that I did not expect. The main character Peter Saint watched his parents die.  He was taken in by Pastor Finn who took care of him like a son.  He had a rule that Peter was to stay in all the time for his protection.  Peter didn’t know what he was being protected from.  He had terrible visions and nightmares that were increasing. Peter would sneak out at night.  He was followed around by a girl named Hannah. He sees her get hit by a car. Before she dies she gives him a “gift”, a mark in his hand.  He rushes home and tells Pastor Finn what has happened and shows him the mark.  Pastor Finn tells him he must leave and search for a safe place.  Peter learns that his parents were part of an organization called The Order of Grace.  They held a secret and gave their life protecting Peter and others like him.

Peter’s blood is desired by an Evil that can use it to bring their evil to life.  Peter joins Angel and Kyle on the run.  The three of them must find a way to stay out of harms way and protect and save the world.  I really wish I could say more but that would really spoil it.  This is definitely a must read for all fantasy lovers.
