Review: The Cupid War by Timothy Carter
Paperback, 229 pages
Release Date: August 8, 2011
Published by: Flux
Description (from Goodreads):
Ricky Fallon spends his afterlife as a Cupid, helping people fall in love. The job would be cool if it weren't for the dorky pink bodysuits, his jerky boss, and attacks from joy-sucking shadowy entities called Suicides. When Fallon discovers a dangerous new breed of Suicide, a terrific battle erupts. Can Ricky save the girl he's falling for?
I have seen some excellent reviews of The Cupid War, and when I finally got a chance to read it, I wasn't disappointed!
This book was great. The author had some really good ideas that formed a really imaginative story. I thought it was cool that Cupids could destroy Suicides and make a person happy again and love themselves.
Ricky was kind of a smart aleck, the author did a very good job portraying the typical teenage boy...well at least the way boys were when I was a teen. But he did come through in the end and was a pretty good Cupid and helped destroy some of the Suicides and saved lives.
The only thing I didn't like was that it seemed like some things were a little rushed, but it wasn't like a huge issue and it didn't take away from my enjoyment in the story, I just wished a couple of things could have been better clarified.
The Cupid War was a fast paced and creative story. I can't wait to check out Timothy's other books!
