Read full description of the books:
This story takes place in a high school in New York. The story starts like this, One day, the main character Mandy was in the changing room and when she comes out the P.E period was cancelled and instead there was an assembly, the principal says that there had been a murder of a student called Nicki in their school, Kyle is the villain in the story who actually kills Nicki, he kept on doing this for thousands of years, he said that many people called sorcerer, wizard and all that so he said he started using technology, so what he basically did was he hacked Mandy’s email and Mandy did not know this until almost the climax of the story, they both chatted and planned to go out for dinner on a Saturday but Nicki refused and Mandy is worried about what Kyle said, he said he was going to kill her like Nicki was killed. The problem the main character is facing is that Kyle is going to kill her and the police can’t catch him because when Mandy sent the jpg image she was sent by Kyle to the police, their computer crashed and they it was actually a virus in jpg image form, so she is worried about what is going to happen to her.
Kyle’s picture is changing very fast, it is changing every couple of minutes, the guy looks almost like the guy who killed Nicki and he was caught on CCTV cameras. First it looked like a normal guy who was in a college, but when she showed it to her friends a little older than he was like, kind of an year or two older, but when she got the message from Kyle she was going to be killed she showed it to her boyfriend Dale and then it looked like the guy was around forty years old and from that point onwards it was changing so fast he was almost fifty and one day it turned like the person who had killed Nicki and from then it was going like a movie, the guy was entering her street and everyone was like they don’t care who the guy was and the police which was put for patrol passed her house so the wizard like man was free to come to her house, he climbing towards the window of her room. She was seeing this all through her computer screen, and finally he was in her room and he was really in her room! Her parents and Dale were running towards her room, she tried to run away from her room but the wizard man quickly locked it, Mandy ran to her bed and took the knife she kept under her pillow and turned her bed sideways as a wall.
I liked the book; it was thrilling and was full of mystery and horror like you never know when the Witch man would attack. Sometimes it was confusing like the picture of Kyle changing without knowing and that too very quickly and the police get that it might be a virus in disguise of a jpg image. My favourite part was where the image starts playing like a video instead of looking like a normal image or changing slowly, it was showing the Witch man move coming into street, near house, him climbing into her room window and then sees in his room! The ending was kind of weird, like the book does not tell you much about the ending, what it tells is pretty much that Mandy dies like Nicki. This is not really connected to anything except movies, horror movies and mystery movies. The author does not tell you properly about what happens in the end, when Nicki dies. It is pretty much like movie trailer showing a small part of the end of the movie. The last sentence says that some people were laughing in the school after telling that both Mandy and Nicki died in the same way.
I would recommend this book to a student, it has horror, it has mystery and also it has a moral, never believe stranger on the internet, they can be cyber bullies or hackers or even both. I would rate this book 4 star because you know the weird ending which makes you keep thinking what would happens to like their parents, what do the police do, I know authors do that but I think it was too short.
