Salem’s Revenge strikes without warning or mercy, ravaging the powerless human race under the forces of united gangs of witches, wizards, and warlocks. During the slaughter, Rhett Carter's foster parents and sister are killed, and his best friend and girlfriend are abducted by a gang of witches calling themselves the Necromancers, who deal in the dark magic of raising the dead. Rhett’s sword-wielding neighbor with a mysterious past saves Rhett from becoming another casualty of the massacre and teaches him the skills he needs to survive in this new world.

Rhett is broken, his normal high school life of book blogging and football playing shoved in a witch-apocalyptic blender. The only thing he has left is his burning desire for revenge. Armed with his new witch hunting skills and a loyal, magic powered dog named Hex, he sets out into the unknown with one mission: hunt and destroy those who took away everyone he ever loved.

But Rhett isn’t just a witch hunter; he has secrets of his own that he has yet to discover, secrets that his enemies will stop at nothing to keep him from.

And discovering the truth about himself is the human race’s only hope.

My Thoughts:
This is my first time reading anything by David Estes and man was I highly intrigued and drawn to his writing! I can't believe I haven't read anything sooner by him.

Brew is an amazing story about witches, warlocks and wizards. This is an apocalyptic world with so much creativity to it and written in a unique style.

The main character, Rhett Carter, world has ended in one giant apocalyptic event called Salem's Revenge. His family is killed, his girlfriend and best friend have disappeared and the only thing left on his mind is revenge. He, along with three others, are on a hunt-- seeking revenge against the Necromancers who took everything from them.

The plot was bold, daring and fast paced. The characters were interesting. The twists were insane -- I couldn't stop reading this beauty. I like how everything was smooth as far as the events that took place. This book left me wanting to know more and read more.

I definitely need to get my hands on Boil because I need more!
