Santino Hassell’s mind must be a tornado of creative genius. There’s no other way to explain how he not only manages to plot his books, but to brilliantly get it onto paper. Stygian is a hauntingly beautiful story about 4 misfit band members. Told in the point of view of Jeremy, the new member of the band. Jeremy is shattered. Utterly broken. He clings to a love that may not be. He is shrouded in a past so dark no light can illuminate hope. We follow this broken existence. See him grappling any solid happiness he can find. He’s mesmerized by the illusion others show him. These characters are facets of all things. I didn’t know who to believe. I felt like I was Jeremy. And in a way we are. We are experiencing all of this through him.Santino’s ability to bring reality to a plotline such as this is breathtaking. Stygian is nothing like I thought it would be… it was far better. It sucked me in. It wrapped me up in these 4 boys and their lives. In their maybe futures. I’ve read hundreds (yes hundreds) of books so far in 2015 and I can say this is the best book of the year so far. Make it part of your life. -

Stygian

Santino Hassell

Description
Jeremy has been isolated and adrift since the death of his brother. Most people just see him as the skinny emo kid who wears eyeliner and plays drums. No one gets him. Nobody tries. He thought the indie rock band Stygian would become his anchor, but—lost in their own problems—they’re far from the family he sought.Still, hoping to get close to Kennedy, the band’s enigmatic guitarist, he follows Stygian to northern Louisiana for a summer retreat. They had planned to spend six weeks focusing on new music, but things go awry as soon as they arrive at the long-deserted Caroway mansion. Tempers flare, sexual tension boils over into frustration, and Jeremy turns away from the band to find a friend in his eerily beautiful landlord Hunter Caroway.Kennedy suspects there’s something off about the creepy mansion and its mysterious owners, but Jeremy thinks he's finally found somewhere he fits. It isn’t until Kennedy forces the Caroways’ secrets into the light that Jeremy realizes belonging sometimes comes with a price. ;
