It’s hard enough being a teenage boy, let alone a teenage boy with supernatural powers derived from Gods. In ancient times, the Gods warred with the Titans. The Titans fell, but the Gods’ need for power never ceased. Soon, they channeled their powers into humans, known as “Demigods,” who could fight their fights for them. Brandon Marlowe is among the cherished few, but life is no easier for him than other boys. He attends school in Tartarus, where a hidden training center exists to cater to these special children. There, Brandon is surrounded by other kids, who are raised and trained to fight the remaining evil Gods and their Demon minions. In Brandon’s world, threats are always emerging, and he must be prepared. Soon, he will be ready—sent to battle, like so many before him, in a war to save the human race. However, Brandon’s troubles are much closer to home. His older brother has died, and no one knows why. As Brandon prepares to enter the massive battle of God versus man, it becomes his mission to discover the cause of his brother’s death and to punish the guilty. But will his quest for vengeance get in the way of his divine battle? And will his world collapse beneath the weight of the truth?

I enjoyed the book. at first glance it reminded me of percey jackson books, but it was not. It had a school for kids with powers to fight the Gods and demons to protect the freedom of humans. Brandon on his second year or training was picked to join a team of three. Also saw him learn somethings quite fast. He was loyal to his team and friends. It was adventures and entertaining book. I look forward to more books with these characters. Thier is plenty of space to grow for more books.read more

To be fair I must say when I started I thought I was pretty much going to get a rehash of Harry Potter/Percy Jackson and after reading those books and getting all of that verbose description and even though the story has elements of both, I had a lovely surprise. Taking a more Chronicles of Narnia feel his book gives a really good interpritation of seeing things from a child/teeangers point of view not that this book doesn't delivery on anything in its directness. Honestly hope there will be a sequel.read more

Second in the series, this book shared a lot of the scenes from the first book. It was fairly full of action and was very well written.The action scenes and the in between scenes kept your interest very well. I get the feeling there will be quite a few more volumes in the series. Young teen age people will especially enjoy this book.read more

Brandon Marlowe and the Spirit Snatcher is a book that will appeal to pre-teen and teen readers, especially boys. It is set in a school for young people with special powers (sound familiar?), whose job is to train to protect the human realm from other realms (Gods, Demons, Sirens, etc.). The story moves right along, but it needs more character development and explication of the back story. Since this appears to be the first in a series, perhaps that will come. Recommended for reluctant readers

When I first read the book description, I thought this was going to be a Percy Jackson clone. However, it was much different. Brandon Marlowe is an elemental titan, and he has power over the wind. He attends a school in Tartarus where he is learning to fight. When we first meet Brandon, he is starting a new school year where he is sorted into a class. When Brandon joins a "squad" with two other students, his adventure really begins.I enjoyed this book very much. Brandon is very sure of himself and his abilities, and this makes for a lot of action. Brandon, his friends, and his squad are great fun. Scene changes could seem a bit abrupt at times, but they certainly kept the action going at a quick pace. There were a few mysteries that were never quite answered, and I desperately want to know the answers to them. This book had some very interesting concepts that felt original and fun. I hope the author keeps writing, because I definitely want to see what happens next!Copy of book won in online contest.

Brandon Marlowe and the Spirit Snatcher is, at first, reminiscent of some currently popular tiles, but then takes off into a world of it's own. It is a story best suited for pre-teens and teens and although it appeals to females as empowered characters, it is primarily geared toward males. It was an interesting read and had a storyline that was easy to follow and had some surprising twists and turns.
