Legacy by JG Faherty [ 4.5 stars]

From the Description:

Some gods demand blood!

Sean Black, a teenage science whiz in a small New England town, leads a pretty normal life...until the night of the storm. After that, nothing is the same. He experiences strange nightmares. He hallucinates about alien creatures and begins to notice weird physical changes in his body, things no one else seems to see. The girl he’s had a crush on for years is acting strange as well, delivering cryptic messages to him that things are not what they seem. When he discovers a secret room in the library, Sean finds himself faced with a life-changing decision, one that could either save the world or plunge it into centuries of death and destruction—with Sean ruling over all.

What a great story!! The descriptions captured my imagination so that I felt like I was on the porch with Sean watching the storm. I really enjoyed JG Faherty's take on the Cthulhu mythos. Sean is an entirely believable and sympathetic character. Fans of Lovecraft will enjoy this gem of a story. I wish it was longer because I didn't want it to end. A fun read 4.5 stars.
