Convince us to read the book: In all honesty I only made it through the first fifty pages of the book. The premise of the book was quite an intriguing one. A teen boy is sent on a mission from Rome to seek out the evils and fears of the world in the fourteenth century. He comes to an abbey where there are unexplained happenings which, it is surmised, are the work of the devil. I thought it would be really interesting, but it moved extremely slow. The writing was somewhat shallow with no deeper intrigue. It didn't really grasp my attention as a reader.
Memorable or Forgettable: It was slow and kind of bland, which leads me to forget most of what happened.
Cover: It interested me; it seemed mystical and darkly alluring. It seemed to somewhat reflect the contents of the book.
