Title: Pillage

Author: Obert Skye

Genre: Fantasy Fiction

“Made for a person who enjoys an unreal setting”

After the death of his mom, Beck Phillips is forced to move and live with his exceptionally rich uncle, that he has never met, in the mountain town of Kingsplot. The people are “different” there and Beck must live without things like TV due to their old ways. Things seem normal enough, until Beck realizes all of the mystical and unworldly things that he is surrounded by, and the powers he possesses.

The setting of this book really adds a lot. An old mountain town where everyone seems to know something, but they don’t want to talk about it. The town seems normal, until things, like vines grabbing people, happen and no one seems to be bothered. These mind-boggling occurrences really make you wonder what secrets are in store. It really helped to build the tension in the rising action and it added more suspense.

I would recommend Pillage to fantasy, and possibly mystery, lovers. This book has many weird twists that leave the reader not knowing what’s next, so you should be prepared to be a little bit confused. There are parts of this book that do not, to our knowledge, exist on our Earth. If you do not enjoy unrealistic creatures, I would not recommend this book. It is a well written book that will surprise the reader.
